Wirthwein, Linda; Steinmayr, Ricarda – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
The operationalization of performance-approach goals (PAGs) was found to be an important moderator of the associations between different PAGs and several educational outcomes. To explore this aspect in more detail, we conducted two studies with school students (N[subscript 1] = 425, mean age = 16.6 years, SD = 0.61; N[subscript 2] = 310, mean age…

We also investigated the…

Locher, Franziska Maria; Becker, Sarah; Schiefer, Irene; Pfost, Maximilian – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Reading self-concept is an important predictor of reading comprehension and vice versa. However, the mechanisms that are at work in this relation have yet to be identified. In line with the self-enhancement approach, we propose that in the reading domain, amount of reading, book choice (text difficulty and book length), and intrinsic reading…
