The purpose of the study was to reveal whether and how learner-centered instruction in comparison with traditional teacher-centered instruction might present unique effects on the learning behaviors and academic motivation of Chinese students. Meanwhile, it was also explored how the distinctive instructing features of Chinese teachers assuming the…

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…

Zaric, Jelena; Hasselhorn, Marcus; Nagler, Telse – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
It is widely accepted that general intelligence and phonological awareness contribute to children's acquisition of reading and spelling skills. A further candidate in this regard is orthographic knowledge (i.e., the knowledge about permissible letter patterns). It consists of two components, word-specific (i.e., the knowledge of the spelling of…

Pyhältö, Kirsi; Pietarinen, Janne; Haverinen, Kaisa; Tikkanen, Lotta; Soini, Tiina – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Teacher burnout has been identified as a significant occupational hazard. However, our understanding about individual variations in burnout risk among in-service teachers is still less than sufficient. This study explored socio-contextual burnout risk profiles and their association with the reported use of proactive strategies among in-service…

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…

Xu, Jianzhong – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Whereas it is often a challenge to keep students motivated and interested in academic tasks, it is more of a challenge to have students stay motivated and interested in academic tasks outside school during nonschool hours--homework. Prior research, however, has largely overlooked the reasons or purposes students have for doing homework and their…

Menz, Cordelia; Spinath, Birgit; Seifried, Eva – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Endorsement of educational psychological misconceptions among preservice teachers can be a threat for reaching educational goals. Therefore, it is of societal interest whether preservice teachers hold educational psychological misconceptions and, if they do, whether these misconceptions can be reduced through confrontation with empirical evidence.…

Tang, Elaine; Cheng, Rebecca Wing-yi; Fung, Wing-kai – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Previous research studies have demonstrated the link between parents' education and parental stress level. However, these studies have not taken parents' goal orientation into consideration. Based on the framework of goal orientation theory, we examined how parents' goals would interact with parents' education to affect perceived parental stress…

Nouwen, Ward; Clycq, Noel – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Tackling early leaving from education and training (ELET) is one of the headline targets for education policy in the European Union. Although ELET rates have been decreasing in most member states, male, socially disadvantaged and immigrant students remain overrepresented in ELET figures. Moreover, students in vocational tracks and students who…

Zhu, Chunjie; Urhahne, Detlef – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Numerous studies have focused on the significance and consequences of teacher judgment; the development of teachers' judgment accuracy over time, however, has been rarely examined. The aim of this study was to investigate the temporal stability of teachers' judgment accuracy of students' motivation, emotion, and achievement. The correspondence…

Thums, Kathrin; Artelt, Cordula; Wolter, Ilka – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
This study aims at exploring gender differences in text-type-specific reading competences via readers' gender-specific reading preferences. Women were expected to read more often for the sake of entertainment (entertainment preference), whereas men were expected to read more often to gain information (information preference). We further assumed…

Schweder, Sabine – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
It is generally accepted and well documented that mastery goal orientation positively affects students' learning behavior. However, less is known about this association in self-directed learning during adolescence, which additionally promotes student's positive emotions. This study tested whether positive emotions mediate the association between…

The aim of this qualitative study was to identify central attributes of positive relationships with teachers from the adolescent students' perspectives that could help delineate the meaning of student-teacher connectedness while exploring to what extent its main attributes were similar or different in England and Spain. As part of the EU-funded…

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,…
