Mierwald, Marcel; Lehmann, Thomas; Brauch, Nicola – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2022
Recent research has repeatedly raised the question of how the authenticity of learning material affects learning outcomes. This question is particularly important for history education: researchers continue to debate whether teachers should use historians' authentic working material (e.g., multiple primary sources and historical accounts) or less…

Kobayashi, Keiichi – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2022
Teaching other students in a face-to-face manner has been shown to effectively foster both one's own and their learning. This study experimentally investigated whether and how tutors and tutees academically benefit from three phases of face-to-face teaching: preparing-to-teach, initial-explanation, and interaction phases. Japanese undergraduates…

Soncini, Annalisa; Matteucci, Maria Cristina; Butera, Fabrizio – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
The present research investigated the possibility to foster positive classroom climate, achievement emotions, and adaptive beliefs about errors by manipulating teachers' error handling strategies. Through a pre-post experimental design, teachers' error handling strategies were manipulated during a fictitious lesson in the primary school context.…

Dellisse, Sébastien; Dumay, Xavier; Galand, Benoit; Dupriez, Vincent; Dufays, Jean-Louis; Coertjens, Liesje; De Croix, Séverine; Penneman, Jessica – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
This study focuses on conditions that improve reading comprehension at grade 7th. We analyze the impact of the "Lirécrire" program, and related treatment integrity, on student performance. "Lirécrire" program should improve students' reading comprehension, and follow-up sessions should lead to greater instructional change, then…

Wu, Hao; Molnár, Gyöngyvér – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
The purpose of this study is to examine cross-national differences in students' exploration strategies in a computer-simulated CPS (complex problem-solving) environment and to identify similarities and qualitative differences in the way Hungarian and Chinese students explore a CPS environment. In a sample of 187 Chinese and 835 Hungarian students…

Hachfeld, Axinja; Lazarides, Rebecca – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Germany historically responded to student diversity by tracking students into different schools beginning with grade 5. In the last decades, sociopolitical changes, such as an increase in "German-as-a-second-language" speaking students (GSL), have increased diversity in all tracks and have forced schools to consider forms of…

Klapp, Alli; Jönsson, Anders – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
National goals and performance standards were introduced in Sweden during the 1990s as part of a curriculum reform. The intention was to detect shortcomings among students and provide support to those students who did not reach the passing grade in one (or several) subject/s. Despite this reform, approximately one-fourth of the students do not…

Papadatou-Pastou, Marietta; Touloumakos, Anna K.; Koutouveli, Christina; Barrable, Alexia – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Although learning styles (LS) have been recognised as a neuromyth, they remain a virtual truism within education. A point of concern is that the term LS has been used within theories that describe them using completely different notions and categorisations. This is the first empirical study to investigate education professionals'…

Ziegler, Esther; Edelsbrunner, Peter A.; Stern, Elsbeth – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Teacher-directed and self-directed learning have been compared across various contexts. Depending on the settings and the presentation of material, mixed benefits are found; the specific circumstances under which either condition is advantageous are unclear. We combined and reanalyzed data from two experimental studies investigating the effects of…

Cheng, Hong-Yu; Ding, Qian-Ting – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
The purpose of the study was to reveal whether and how learner-centered instruction in comparison with traditional teacher-centered instruction might present unique effects on the learning behaviors and academic motivation of Chinese students. Meanwhile, it was also explored how the distinctive instructing features of Chinese teachers assuming the…

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…

Völlinger, Vanessa A.; Supanc, Marina – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
Past research points to cooperative learning as a potentially effective means of fostering the academic and social development of students in inclusive education. This study examined the attitudes of student teachers towards the use of cooperative learning in inclusive education as well as correlating variables. In addition, potential differences…

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…

Kikas, Eve; Tang, Xin – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2019
This study examined relations between child-reported teacher emotional support, teaching practices, and children's task-persistent learning behaviour. The study was carried out in Estonia, where a students' first teacher advances with his/her students and teaches all primary subjects in the first 3 years of schooling. In total, 660 sixth-grade…

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)…
