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…

Given the significant role that academic self-concept plays in students' learning, understanding the psychological processes involved in its formation continues to be an important focus of enquiry. There is strong empirical support for two major models of academic self-concept (ASC) formation: the big-fish-little-pond (BFLP) model and the…

de Leur, Tessa; van Boxtel, Carla; Wilschut, Arie – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
The past is not in the classroom to observe and study. Thus, creating a lively and understandable image of a past period or situation is an achievement to be learned. A variety of tasks can be used to stimulate students to create an image of the past. In this experimental study, 151 grade 9 students (14-16 years old) participated by completing a…

Leung, Kim Chau – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2019
Previous meta-analyses on peer tutoring have mainly included studies using treatment-control/comparison design and excluded studies that adopted pre-test-post-test design.

Wang, Jing; King, Ronnel B.; Rao, Nirmala – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2019
The role of mastery and performance goals in self-regulated learning (SRL) has received much attention. However, in collectivist and Confucian-heritage contexts, social-academic goals may also play an important, yet unexamined role in SRL. This study examined the association between social-academic goals and SRL. We tested a hierarchical model…

Especially for students in lower achievement levels, there is a significant negative trend in academic self-determined motivation across childhood through adolescence and more so in maths than in any other school subject. To counteract this negative development, a multicomponent intervention study based on the main ideas of self-determination…
