Sekeris, Elke; Verschaffel, Lieven; Luwel, Koen – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2022
Computational estimation is seen as an important mathematical competence. Little is known, however, about the mathematical skills that are predictive of early computational estimation development. The current study longitudinally followed a group of about 350 children at four time points: second (K2, 4-year-olds) and third grades of kindergarten…

Demirbag, Mehmet; Bahcivan, Eralp – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2022
This study was conducted to investigate the relationships among Turkish preservice science teachers' argumentativeness, epistemological beliefs, and achievement goals, as well as the reasons for coherencies and incoherencies among these variables. A sequential explanatory research design was applied within the 2 following studies. In Study I, the…

Bonifacci, Paola; Trambagioli, Nicole; Bernabini, Luca; Tobia, Valentina – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2022
The aim of the present study was to test environmental and cognitive variables as possible cross-domain predictors of early literacy and numeracy skills. One hundred forty-eight preschool children (mean age = 64.36 months ± 3.33) were enrolled in the study. The battery included a home literacy and home numeracy questionnaire, measures and…

Diebold, Tatiana; Perren, Sonja – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2022
The present study observed 86 three-year-old children (M = 43.7, SD = 6.4) from 15 Swiss childcare groups, to investigate multiple individual and contextual contributions to toddlers' positive engagement with peers. The children's individual characteristics (age, sex and social skills) and childcare-related predictors (emotional and behavioural…

Holenstein, Mathias; Bruckmaier, Georg; Grob, Alexander – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Mathematical literacy (ML) is considered central to the application of mathematical knowledge in everyday life and thus is found in many comparative international educational standards. However, there exists barely any evidence about predictors and outcomes of ML having a lasting effect on achievement in nonmathematical domains. We drew on a large…

Opoku, Maxwell Peprah; Cuskelly, Monica; Pedersen, Scott J.; Rayner, Christopher S. – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
The intention of teachers towards adopting inclusive practices is vital to determining teaching behaviour in classrooms. Although some previous studies have reported that variables such as attitudes, subjective norms and self-efficacy combine to predict intention of teachers, such studies are sparse in sub-Saharan Africa and mainly limited to…

Bigozzi, Lucia; Pezzica, Sara; Malagoli, Chiara – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Attention is an important, multifaceted cognitive domain that includes many key cognitive processes involved in learning. This study aimed to identify the predictive links between different components of attentional skills and core calculation skills development, using two standardized measures assessing calculation (AC-MT 6-11) and attention…

Pitsia, Vasiliki; Mazzone, Angela – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Bullying victimisation is a reality in most schools around the world, with thousands of students being victimised on a daily basis. Given the prevalence of bullying victimisation at school, examination of what might prompt or prevent such behaviours is required. Therefore, this study examined the relationship of a number of individual and…

Aragón, Estibaliz; Cerda, Gamal; Aguilar, Manuel; Mera, Carlos; Navarro, Jose I. – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
The main goal of this study was to analyze the contribution of predictors of both domain-general (working memory, processing speed, and receptive vocabulary) and domain-specific variable (estimation and magnitude comparison) processes to informal mathematical performance (numbering, comparison, calculation, and understanding of concepts) in…

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…

Poulou, M.; Norwich, B. – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
Students' emotional and behavioral difficulties are recognized as a continuing issue in the adolescent development and education. Since adolescents spend a great amount of time in schools, a central question is how schools can facilitate adolescents' adjustment and positive schooling. Using the ERG theory of human needs, the present study aims to…

Zhoc, Karen C. H.; King, Ronnel B.; Chung, Tony S. H.; Chen, Junjun – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
The role of emotions in student engagement has been examined in many studies. However, little is known about how emotional intelligence (EI) is related to engagement and other key learning outcomes in higher education. To fill this gap, this study examined how EI is associated with student engagement and how EI and engagement jointly predict key…

Harks, Marvin; Hannover, Bettina – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
Feeling socially well embedded in the classroom's peer network is a predictor of many positive developmental outcomes, such as engagement at school. But what does feeling embedded depend on? We investigated the impact of both peers and the teacher. Peer status, measured by sociometric sympathy-based peer nominations, and peer victimization,…

Košir, Katja; Klasinc, Lucia; Špes, Tanja; Pivec, Tina; Cankar, Gašper; Horvat, Marina – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
The purpose of the present study was to examine individual and contextual predictors of victimization and bullying on a sample of early adolescents. Using both self-reports and peer nominations for victimization and bullying assessment, potential differential predictors for self- vs. peer-reported victimization and bullying were examined. A total…
