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…

de Leur, Tessa; van Boxtel, Carla; Wilschut, Arie – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
The past is not in the classroom to observe and study. Thus, creating a lively and understandable image of a past period or situation is an achievement to be learned. A variety of tasks can be used to stimulate students to create an image of the past. In this experimental study, 151 grade 9 students (14-16 years old) participated by completing a…

Grossen, Michèle; Muller Mirza, Nathalie – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
In Switzerland, as elsewhere, issues dealing with cultural diversity raise major challenges in education. At present, little is known about how students make sense of these highly sensitive societal issues and relate them to their everyday experience. Drawing on a sociocultural and dialogical approach to learning, this study aimed at understanding…

González-Forte, Juan Manuel; Fernández, Ceneida; Van Hoof, Jo; Van Dooren, Wim – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
Understanding rational numbers is a complex task for primary and secondary school students. Previous research has shown that a possible reason is students' tendency to apply the properties of natural numbers (inappropriately) when they are working with rational numbers (a phenomenon called "natural number bias"). Focusing on rational…

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…

Käfer, Julia; Kuger, Susanne; Klieme, Eckhard; Kunter, Mareike – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2019
From a constructivist perspective on learning, mistakes are seen as natural elements of learning processes. A supportive and constructive way of dealing with student mistakes has shown to affect students' individual motivation and learning performances in a favorable way. In classroom settings, however, making mistakes is not just a personal but…

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…

Oerke, Britta; McElvany, Nele; Ohle-Peters, Annika; Horz, Holger; Ullrich, Mark – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2019
Reading texts with instructional pictures (text-picture integration) is a key component of students' learning processes in most school subjects, and teachers are tasked with helping their students acquire and refine this skill. The present study focuses on how teachers support their students with this process, and if this support contributes to…

Edossa, Ashenafi Kassahun; Neuenhaus, Nora; Artelt, Cordula; Lingel, Klaus; Schneider, Wolfgang – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2019
Knowledge about one's own cognitive processes is the basis for the monitoring and regulation of learning processes for effective reading comprehension. Taking verbal cognitive ability into account, the present study aimed to examine the developmental trajectories of reading comprehension and declarative metacognitive knowledge and their…
