Csanadi, Andras; Kollar, Ingo; Fischer, Frank – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
This study investigates if collaboration and the level of heterogeneity between collaborating partners' problem-solving scripts can influence the extent to which pre-service teachers engage in evidence-based reasoning when analyzing and solving pedagogical problem cases. We operationalized evidence-based reasoning through its content and process…

Wu, Chao-Jung; Liu, Chia-Yu; Yang, Chung-Hsuan; Jian, Yu-Cin – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Despite decades of research on the close link between eye movements and human cognitive processes, the exact nature of the link between eye movements and deliberative thinking in problem-solving remains unknown. Thus, this study explored the critical eye-movement indicators of deliberative thinking and investigated whether visual behaviors could…

Hanin, Vanessa; Colognesi, Stéphane; Van Nieuwenhoven, Catherine – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
The aim of this article is to assess the effects on learners' emotions and emotion regulation of an intervention promoting the development of cognitive strategies for mathematical problem-solving and positive perceptions of problem-solving competence (SEP), embedded in an overall self-regulated approach, with upper elementary students (N = 334,…

Chen, Ouhao; Kalyuga, Slava – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
Problem solving followed by explicit instruction, as suggested by productive failure and several other instructional theories, indicates long-term learning benefits, whereas explicit instruction followed by problem solving has been consistently demonstrated as superior within the framework of cognitive load theory. However, the effectiveness of…

Vicente, Santiago; Sánchez, Rosario; Verschaffel, Lieven – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
Singaporean children are the best performers on international achievement tests in mathematics (i.e. the TIMSS). Their excellent results could be due at least partly to certain characteristics of the textbooks used there (Oates 2014). Therefore, these materials could be taken as a good benchmark to describe and evaluate aspects of the textbooks of…

Ollivier, Fanny; Noël, Yvonnick; Legrand, Aline; Bonneton-Botté, Nathalie – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
What constitutes effective teaching of arithmetical skills in early school years is still uncertain. Finger use could play a crucial role in this acquisition, but some children do not use them spontaneously and studies would be necessary to know if it is possible to teach them. This research assesses the impact of a teacher-implemented…

Hanin, Vanessa; Van Nieuwenhoven, Catherine – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2019
Recent literature has shown that achievement emotions, their regulation, and perceived competence play a compelling role in mathematics learning and achievement. Studies that have looked at these variables have, for the most part, adopted a person-centered approach, which examines relationships between variables found to a similar degree in all…

Fischer, Jean-Paul; Sander, Emmanuel; Sensevy, Gérard; Vilette, Bruno; Richard, Jean-François – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2019
Ensuring students correctly understand the notion of equality is a fundamental problem in teaching mathematics. Is it possible to teach arithmetic in such a way that students do not misinterpret the equal sign "=" as indicating the result of an arithmetic operation and, consequently, viewing the arithmetic operation symbols (+, -, or x)…

Radišic, Jelena; Baucal, Aleksandar – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2018
The study explores how teachers perceive and go about students' thinking in connection to particular mathematical content and how they frame the notion of applied mathematics in their own classrooms. Teachers' narratives are built around two released PISA 2012 mathematics items, the 'Drip rate' and 'Climbing Mount Fuji' (will be referred to as the…

Baucal, Aleksandar; Pavlovic Babic, Dragica; Jošic, Smiljana – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2018
Why do students give incorrect answers in PISA? What are the reasons for giving incorrect answers? Do all incorrect answers reflect only the lack of competence or might even a competent child make a mistake? The aim of this article is to contribute to a better understanding of these issues. In the current investigation, we selected six students…

Selleri, Patrizia; Carugati, Felice – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2018
There is a consensus that the items proposed by the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) program allow us to focus on the outcomes of the processes of appropriation and transformation of learning tools at the end of compulsory schooling, particularly regarding the key competencies for lifelong learning and citizenship in digital…

Maddox, Bryan; Bayliss, Andrew P.; Fleming, Piers; Engelhardt, Paul E.; Edwards, S. Gareth; Borgonovi, Francesca – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2018
This paper reports on a pilot study that used eye tracking techniques to make detailed observations of item response processes in the OECD Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC). The lab-based study also recorded physiological responses using measures of pupil diameter and electrodermal activity. The study tested…

Säljö, Roger; Radišic, Jelena – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2018
Public discussion on the quality of education in different corners of the world very much relies on the data provided by the international large-scale assessment (ILSA) studies. While aware of different methodological keystones and technicalities embedded in these, the idea behind this special issue is to contribute to the understanding of how…

Degrande, Tine; Verschaffel, Lieven; Van Dooren, Wim – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2018
While previous studies mainly focused on children's additive and multiplicative reasoning abilities, we studied third to sixth graders' "preference" for additive or multiplicative relations. This was investigated by means of schematic problems that were "open" to both types of relations, namely arrow schemes containing three…

Hickendorff, Marian – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2018
Strategy flexibility, adaptivity, and the use of clever shortcut strategies are of major importance in current primary school mathematics education worldwide. However, empirical results show that primary school students use such shortcut strategies rather infrequently. The aims of the present study were to analyze the extent to which Dutch sixth…
