Tackling early leaving from education and training (ELET) is one of the headline targets for education policy in the European Union. Although ELET rates have been decreasing in most member states, male, socially disadvantaged and immigrant students remain overrepresented in ELET figures. Moreover, students in vocational tracks and students who…

Zhu, Chunjie; Urhahne, Detlef – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Numerous studies have focused on the significance and consequences of teacher judgment; the development of teachers' judgment accuracy over time, however, has been rarely examined. The aim of this study was to investigate the temporal stability of teachers' judgment accuracy of students' motivation, emotion, and achievement. The correspondence…

The aim of this qualitative study was to identify central attributes of positive relationships with teachers from the adolescent students' perspectives that could help delineate the meaning of student-teacher connectedness while exploring to what extent its main attributes were similar or different in England and Spain. As part of the EU-funded…

This study investigates the effects of contextual and motivational factors as well as, crucially, their interaction in predicting university students' dropout intentions. We focus on context-related problems in students' degree program as contextual factors and students' personal best goals (PB goals) as motivational factors. The sample of this…

Wei, Dan; Zhang, Danhui; He, Jingwen; Bobis, Janette – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
According to the self-determination theory, autonomy-supportive teaching is considered an effective approach to motivate students to learn. The present study investigates the effect of students' perceived autonomy support on math achievement over time, i.e. from grades 4 to 6, using a longitudinal survey administered in Chinese elementary schools.…

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…

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…

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…

Wang, Jing; King, Ronnel B.; Rao, Nirmala – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2019
The role of mastery and performance goals in self-regulated learning (SRL) has received much attention. However, in collectivist and Confucian-heritage contexts, social-academic goals may also play an important, yet unexamined role in SRL. This study examined the association between social-academic goals and SRL. We tested a hierarchical model…

Józsa, Krisztián; Kis, Noémi; Barrett, Karen Caplovitz – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2019
Children's motivation to master challenging tasks is an important predictor of school success, and yet, such motivation declines during adolescence. It is therefore important to identify ways to intervene to reduce this decline. One malleable factor that is associated with motivation is parenting. The present study used structural equation…

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…

Winberg, T. Mikael; Hofverberg, Anders; Lindfors, Maria – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2019
Examining how students' epistemic beliefs (EB) influence their cognition is central to EB research. Recently, the relation between students' EB and their motivation has gained attention. In the present study, we investigate the development of the relationship between students' EB and their achievement goals (AG) over grades 5-11. Previous studies…

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.…

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,…

Stenlund, Tova; Lyrén, Per-Erik; Eklöf, Hanna – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2018
To be successful in a high-stakes testing situation is desirable for any test taker. It has been found that, beside content knowledge, test-taking behavior, such as risk-taking strategies, motivation, and test anxiety, is important for test performance. The purposes of the present study were to identify and group test takers with similar patterns…
