Stavrulaki, Euthemia; Li, Mingfei; Gupta, Juhi – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Using the perspective of self-determination theory, we examined college students' motivation orientation as a mediator of the relationship between parenting style and life satisfaction or GPA. The sample was drawn from a medium size university in the northeast of the USA (N = 432). While controlling for gender, age, and ethnicity, we used…

Schirmbeck, Katharina; Rao, Nirmala; Wang, Rhoda; Richards, Ben; Chan, Stephanie W. Y.; Maehler, Claudia – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Previous research findings indicate that young children from East Asia outperform their counterparts from Europe and North America on executive function (EF) tasks. However, very few cross-national studies have focused on EF development during middle childhood. The current study assessed the EF performance of 170 children in grades 2 and 4 from…

González-Forte, Juan Manuel; Fernández, Ceneida; Van Hoof, Jo; Van Dooren, Wim – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
Understanding rational numbers is a complex task for primary and secondary school students. Previous research has shown that a possible reason is students' tendency to apply the properties of natural numbers (inappropriately) when they are working with rational numbers (a phenomenon called "natural number bias"). Focusing on rational…

Willems, Jonas; Coertjens, Liesje; Tambuyzer, Bart; Donche, Vincent – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2019
Science students' study success rates in the first year of higher education (FYHE) are problematic. Although a considerable amount of previous research has been carried out to investigate the determinants of students' academic achievement in FYHE, there has been little discussion about the incremental value of non-cognitive factors over and above…

Degrande, Tine; Verschaffel, Lieven; Van Dooren, Wim – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2018
While previous studies mainly focused on children's additive and multiplicative reasoning abilities, we studied third to sixth graders' "preference" for additive or multiplicative relations. This was investigated by means of schematic problems that were "open" to both types of relations, namely arrow schemes containing three…

Guglielmi, Dina; Bruni, Ilaria; Simbula, Silvia; Fraccaroli, Franco; Depolo, Marco – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2016
Despite the growing body of research on work engagement, little is known about what drives work engagement among different age cohorts. This study aims to investigate whether engagement varies across age cohorts and examines the job resources that foster teacher engagement. A questionnaire was distributed to 537 teachers who were employed in…

Castellaro, Mariano A.; Roselli, Néstor D. – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2015
From a socio-constructivist approach, this work aimed to analyze the characteristics of peer collaboration in dyads of children according to age (4, 8, and 12 years old), socioeconomic context (advantaged socioeconomic context and disadvantaged socioeconomic context), and task (block construction task and free drawing). Eighty-two children (41…

Kurtz-Costes, Beth; Copping, Kristine E.; Rowley, Stephanie J.; Kinlaw, C. Ryan – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2014
We measured age and gender differences in children's awareness and endorsement of gender stereotypes about math, science, and verbal abilities in 463 fourth, sixth, and eighth graders. Children reported their perceptions of adults' beliefs and their own stereotypes about gender differences in academic abilities. Consistent with study…

Huijgen, Tim; van Boxtel, Carla; van de Grift, Wim; Holthuis, Paul – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2014
Historical reasoning competencies play an important role in history education. However, valid and reliable large-scale measurement instruments to assess these competencies are scarce. This study considers two instruments for measuring students' ability to perform historical perspective taking (HPT) as a historical reasoning competency. The…

Košir, Katja; Tement, Sara – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2014
Although the relation between teacher--student relationship and academic achievement has been addressed in many studies, the reciprocal relations between these two constructs have not been explored sufficiently. The aim of the present study was to test three competing models that hypothesized directionality of influence in relations between…

Niklas, Frank; Schneider, Wolfgang – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2014
Mathematical competencies are important not only for academic achievement at school but also for professional success later in life. Although we know a lot about the impact of "Home Literacy Environment" on the development of early linguistic competencies, research on "Home Numeracy Environment" (HNE) and the assessment of its…
