Cruz Neri, Nadine; Guill, Karin; Retelsdorf, Jan – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Science performance is highly affected by students' reading comprehension. Recently, there has been a growing attention to the role of linguistic features for science performance, but findings are ambivalent, especially when looking into item word count. The aim of this study was to investigate the interaction of students' reading comprehension…

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…

Clem, Anna-Leena; Rudasill, Kathleen M.; Hirvonen, Riikka; Aunola, Kaisa; Kiuru, Noona – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
This study examined to what extent teacher-student conflict and closeness, on the one hand, and students' self-concepts of ability in literacy and mathematics, on the other, are related to students' achievement emotions (enjoyment, anxiety and boredom) in mathematics and literacy among Finnish early adolescents (N = 854). We also investigated the…

Phan, Huy P.; Ngu, Bing H. – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
"Optimal best practice" is a central feat of human agency. It emphasizes a state of flourishing and reflects, in this case, the paradigm of positive psychology. One research inquiry that is of interest relates to an explanatory account of how a person reaches a state of optimal best. Recent research development has considered an…

Amani, Malahat; Nazifi, Morteza; Sorkhabi, Nadia – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
Early adolescent girls' (6th grade) academic achievement was examined using parenting styles as predictors and parent involvement and early adolescents' self-regulated learning (SRL) as mediators. Participants were 341 early adolescents, 341 mothers, and 20 teachers (N = 702) among all middle schools of Bojnord, Iran-recruited using cluster,…

Rawlings, Anna Maria; Tapola, Anna; Niemivirta, Markku – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
Students' goal strivings are known to be connected with important outcomes, both academically and with regard to individual well-being. In spite of their importance, our knowledge of factors contributing to their early development is rather limited. In this longitudinal study on school beginners (N = 212), we focused on the interrelationships…

Rogiers, Amelie; Merchie, Emmelien; Van Keer, Hilde – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
This study investigates the correlation between three data gathering methods for uncovering differences in secondary school students' text-learning strategy use. In total, 56 secondary school students' text-learning strategies were assessed with (a) a task-specific self-report inventory, (b) think-alouds protocols, and (c) the trace methodology.…

Yi, Hui; Tian, Lili; Huebner, E. Scott – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
Based on the self-system model of motivational development, we examined the mediating role of school engagement, including cognitive engagement and behavioral engagement, in accounting for the relation between mastery goal orientations and subjective well-being in school among elementary school students. A total of 974 Chinese children (440…

Past research points to cooperative learning as a potentially effective means of fostering the academic and social development of students in inclusive education. This study examined the attitudes of student teachers towards the use of cooperative learning in inclusive education as well as correlating variables. In addition, potential differences…

Zhang, Haomin – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
The present study aims to explore the reciprocal relationship between multidimensional lexical knowledge (reading vocabulary and morphological awareness) and reading comprehension among early elementary-age Chinese students. Using data from second-grade students (N = 288, M[subscript age]=7.8), the study drew upon a cross-lagged panel design to…

Maulana, Ridwan; Smale-Jacobse, Annemieke; Helms-Lorenz, Michelle; Chun, Seyeoung; Lee, Okhwa – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
Differentiated instruction is considered to be an important teaching quality domain to address the needs of individual students in daily classroom practices. However, little is known about whether differentiated instruction is empirically distinguishable from other teaching quality domains in different national contexts. Additionally, little is…

Holzberger, Doris; Praetorius, Anna-Katharina; Seidel, Tina; Kunter, Mareike – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2019
Teaching effectiveness has often been described from a variable-centered perspective according to instructional, organizational, and emotional teaching characteristics and their prediction of students' outcomes. Adopting a person-centered approach, the present study analyzed how multiple variables of teaching quality co-occur simultaneously within…

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…

Bieg, Sonja; Grassinger, Robert; Dresel, Markus – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2019
Characteristics of teaching are associated with the emotions students experience in the classroom; however, empirical evidence regarding longitudinal effects is scarce. The present study investigated changes in positive and negative achievement emotions (enjoyment, boredom, and anger) vis-à-vis different teacher humor types (course-related,…

Oostdam, R. J.; Koerhuis, M. J. C.; Fukkink, R. G. – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2019
Much research has been done into the relationship between students' motivation to learn and their basic psychological needs as defined by the self-determination theory (autonomy, competence, relatedness). However, few studies have explored how these psychological needs relate to different types of maladaptive behavior in the classroom. To prevent…
