Wichmann, Astrid; Funk, Alexandra; Rummel, Nikol – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2018
The act of revising is an important aspect of academic writing. Although revision is crucial for eliminating writing errors and producing high-quality texts, research on writing expertise shows that novices rarely engage in revision activities. Providing information on writing errors by means of peer feedback has become a popular method in writing…

Burns, Richard A.; Crisp, Dimity A.; Burns, Robert B. – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2018
A hierarchical and multi-dimensional model of self-concept is well-validated. Despite increasing evidence that self-concept comprises two latent factors related to perceptions of 'competence' and 'affect,' many researchers continue to examine the impact of a unitary self-concept on educational outcomes. This study explores evidence for a 2-factor…

Marcotte, Diane; Diallo, Thierno M. O.; Paré, Marie-Laurence – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2018
Many studies have reported an increase in mental health problems during post-secondary transition, often originating from high school years.

Vezzani, Claudio; Vettori, Giulia; Pinto, Giuliana – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2018
Research on students' conceptions of learning is a growing and complex area of interest in the field of psychology of education.

Darnon, Céline; Jury, Mickaël; Aelenei, Cristina – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2018
Although approach forms of achievement goals (mastery and performance goals) have been shown to predict academic achievement in college, recent research underscores that these associations are rather weak and not consistently observed. The present study tests students' social class (in the present research, generational status) as a moderator of…

This work analyzes the possible existence of self-protection profiles based on a combination of self-handicapping (behavioral and claimed) strategies and defensive pessimism in university students. Similarly, the relationship between these profiles and academic goals (learning, performance-approach, performance-avoidance, and work-avoidance) is…

Small group work is common practice in higher education. However, empirical research on students' emotions related to group work is still relatively scarce. Particularly, little is known about students' appraisals of a group task as antecedents of emotions arising in the context of group work. This paper provides a first attempt to systematically…

The results showed significant differences…

Perceived social support has been shown to be one of the most important protective factors for emerging adult students during their transition to university. However, the relationships between perceived social support and dimensions of gender and family background, which have been shown to affect adjustment to college life, remain unexplored. The…
