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…

Bakadorova, Olga; Lazarides, Rebecca; Raufelder, Diana – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
While school self-concept is an important facilitator of a student's school engagement, previous studies rarely investigated whether it may also explain the change in students' school engagement during secondary school. Moreover, as social relations play an increasingly important role in adolescence, the current research distinguishes between the…

Vasalampi, Kati; Pakarinen, Eija; Torppa, Minna; Viljaranta, Jaana; Lerkkanen, Marja-Kristiina; Poikkeus, Anna-Maija – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
According to the big-fish-little-pond effect (BFLP) model, high individual academic performance in a particular subject is related to high self-concept in that subject, whereas high average classroom performance has a negative effect on self-concept. In the present study, data from Finnish primary school students in grade 3 (504 students), grade 4…

Kavanagh, Lauren – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
Given the significant role that academic self-concept plays in students' learning, understanding the psychological processes involved in its formation continues to be an important focus of enquiry. There is strong empirical support for two major models of academic self-concept (ASC) formation: the big-fish-little-pond (BFLP) model and the…

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…

Willems, Jonas; Coertjens, Liesje; Tambuyzer, Bart; Donche, Vincent – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2019
Science students' study success rates in the first year of higher education (FYHE) are problematic. Although a considerable amount of previous research has been carried out to investigate the determinants of students' academic achievement in FYHE, there has been little discussion about the incremental value of non-cognitive factors over and above…

Putwain, David W. – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2019
According to the self-referent executive processing (S-REF) model, test anxiety develops from interactions between three systems: executive self-regulation processes, self-beliefs, and maladaptive situational interactions. Studies have tended to examine one system at a time, often in conjunction with how test anxiety relates to achievement…

Burns, Richard A.; Crisp, Dimity A.; Burns, Robert B. – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2018
A hierarchical and multi-dimensional model of self-concept is well-validated. Despite increasing evidence that self-concept comprises two latent factors related to perceptions of 'competence' and 'affect,' many researchers continue to examine the impact of a unitary self-concept on educational outcomes. This study explores evidence for a 2-factor…

Hascoët, Marine; Pansu, Pascal; Bouffard, Thèrèse; Leroy, Nadia – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2018
When children perceive a conditional support, they only feel loved and encouraged for their ability to meet others' standards. This may lead them to develop high sensitivity to errors and anxiety and low perception of competence. In this study, we examined the relationship between the perceived conditional support from teacher and children's…

Khany, Reza; Amiri, Majid – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2018
Theoretical developments in second or foreign language motivation research have led to a better understanding of the convoluted nature of motivation in the process of language acquisition. Among these theories, action control theory has recently shown a good deal of explanatory power in second language learning contexts and in the presence of…

Brandenberger, Claudia C.; Hagenauer, Gerda; Hascher, Tina – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2018
Especially for students in lower achievement levels, there is a significant negative trend in academic self-determined motivation across childhood through adolescence and more so in maths than in any other school subject. To counteract this negative development, a multicomponent intervention study based on the main ideas of self-determination…

Klapp, Alli – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2018
The purpose of the study was to investigate if academic and social self-concept and motivation to improve in academic school subjects mediated the negative effect of summative assessment (grades) for low-ability students' achievement in compulsory school. In two previous studies, summative assessment (grading) was found to have a differentiating…

Grygiel, Pawel; Modzelewski, Michal; Pisarek, Jolanta – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2017
This study reports relationships between general academic self-concept and achievement in grade 3 and grade 5. Gender-specific effects were investigated using a longitudinal, two-cycle, 3-year autoregressive cross-lagged panel design in a large, representative sample of Polish primary school pupils (N = 4,226). Analysis revealed (a) reciprocal…

Bressoux, Pascal; Pansu, Pascal – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2016
This article aims to study the relationship between teachers' judgment and pupils' self-perceptions controlling for the big-fish-little-pond effect (BFLPE). Three studies were conducted among third-grade pupils. Study 1 (n = 585) focused on pupils' perceptions of their scholastic competence. Teachers' judgment and BFLPE were found to have an…
