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…

Phan, Huy P.; Ngu, Bing H. – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
"Optimal best practice" is a central feat of human agency. It emphasizes a state of flourishing and reflects, in this case, the paradigm of positive psychology. One research inquiry that is of interest relates to an explanatory account of how a person reaches a state of optimal best. Recent research development has considered an…

Putarek, Vanja; Pavlin-Bernardic, Nina – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
This study examined the relationships between motivational beliefs, defined as self-efficacy for self-regulated learning and achievement goals, engagement and academic cheating in the context of learning biology. Gender differences across these variables were also examined and both active and second-party types of cheating were included. Based on…

Employability is an increasing concern for university students. Our survey set out to examine university students' perceptions of their employability and the ways in which these perceptions relate to positions that subsequently connect students to working life: students' self-representational position or "ability self", and students'…

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…

Huang, Xiaoxia; Zhang, Jie; Hudson, Laura – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2019
This study tested a proposed model consisting of mathematics anxiety, mathematics self-efficacy, and implicit theories of intelligence in predicting mathematics and science career interest in middle school students, while controlling for student math level. One hundred fifty-two seventh-grade students in a middle school in the USA participated in…

Jungert, Tomas; Hubbard, Kyle; Dedic, Helena; Rosenfield, Steven – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2019
For years, a popular explanation for women choosing to abandon studies in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) has been their lack of aptitude. This study challenged that notion by integrating theories of cognitive style, academic emotion, self-efficacy, and motivation to explain students' academic achievement and perseverance…

Kyndt, Eva; Donche, Vincent; Coertjens, Liesje; van Daal, Tine; Gijbels, David; Van Petegem, Peter – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2019
The transition from secondary to higher education is a challenging process, in which the development of students' motivation plays a pivotal role. The current study examines whether self-efficacy--and how it develops--is able to explain the growth in motivation. The current longitudinal study included five waves, across a period of 25 months (i.e.…

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…

van Rooij, Els C. M.; Jansen, Ellen P. W. A.; van de Grift, Wim J. C. M. – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2018
Considering the pivotal role of academic adjustment for student success, it is important to gain insight into how several motivational and behavioural factors affect academic adjustment and the extent to which academic adjustment influences student success. This empirical study investigated how intrinsic motivation, academic self-efficacy,…

De Clercq, Mikaël; Galand, Benoît; Frenay, Mariane – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2017
Although a vast body of studies regarding the variables related to students' achievement exists, only a handful has investigated how these variables combine and interact together. Such an investigation might make it possible to more accurately illustrate the heterogeneity of students enrolling in university and assess the impact of this diversity…

Bennett, Marcus; Ng-Knight, Terry; Hayes, Ben – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2017
Research predicated on self-determination theory (SDT) has established a positive relationship between autonomy-supportive teaching and a range of desired student outcomes. Therefore, the enhancement of autonomy-supportive teaching is a legitimate focus of efforts to improve student outcomes. In this study, we compared self-reported levels of…

Künsting, Josef; Neuber, Victoria; Lipowsky, Frank – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2016
In this longitudinal study, we examined teachers' self-efficacy as a long-term predictor of their mastery goal orientation and three dimensions of instructional quality: supportive classroom climate, effective classroom management, and cognitive activation. Mastery goal orientation was also analyzed as a predictor of instructional quality.…
