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'…

Thums, Kathrin; Artelt, Cordula; Wolter, Ilka – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
This study aims at exploring gender differences in text-type-specific reading competences via readers' gender-specific reading preferences. Women were expected to read more often for the sake of entertainment (entertainment preference), whereas men were expected to read more often to gain information (information preference). We further assumed…

García-Pérez, Daniel; Fraile, Juan; Panadero, Ernesto – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
This study's aim was to analyse the decisions higher education students make about learning strategies. We focus on research questions related to the strategies that students report, their strategy adaptability to different learning situations, and the association of learning strategies with students' self-regulated learning and academic…

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…

Cruz Neri, Nadine; Guill, Karin; Retelsdorf, Jan – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Science performance is highly affected by students' reading comprehension. Recently, there has been a growing attention to the role of linguistic features for science performance, but findings are ambivalent, especially when looking into item word count. The aim of this study was to investigate the interaction of students' reading comprehension…

Csanadi, Andras; Kollar, Ingo; Fischer, Frank – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
This study investigates if collaboration and the level of heterogeneity between collaborating partners' problem-solving scripts can influence the extent to which pre-service teachers engage in evidence-based reasoning when analyzing and solving pedagogical problem cases. We operationalized evidence-based reasoning through its content and process…

Papadopoulos, Timothy C.; Spanoudis, George; Ktisti, Christiana; Fella, Argyro – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
We investigated the role of linguistic and cognitive processes in reading precocity from kindergarten to grade 2. A sample of 33 precocious readers was identified that did not differ on age, gender, and parental education to a control group of 259 typical readers. The effects of verbal ability were also controlled. All children were administered a…

Lang, Fabian; Kammerer, Yvonne; Stürmer, Kathleen; Gerjets, Peter – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Prior research on epistemic beliefs, that is, individuals' views about knowledge and knowing, has mainly focused either on individuals' professed beliefs (as reported in questionnaires) or on their enacted beliefs (as indicated during task processing). However, little is known about the relation between professed and enacted epistemic beliefs. The…

Urban, Kamila; Urban, Marek – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Accurate self-evaluation leads to better regulation of learning and better performance in elementary school children and acts as a predictor of future academic success. The present study investigates the conditions under which preschoolers' self-evaluation accuracy can be enhanced. In the empirical research, 111 children were assigned to one of…

Wu, Chao-Jung; Liu, Chia-Yu; Yang, Chung-Hsuan; Jian, Yu-Cin – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Despite decades of research on the close link between eye movements and human cognitive processes, the exact nature of the link between eye movements and deliberative thinking in problem-solving remains unknown. Thus, this study explored the critical eye-movement indicators of deliberative thinking and investigated whether visual behaviors could…

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…

Zaric, Jelena; Hasselhorn, Marcus; Nagler, Telse – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
It is widely accepted that general intelligence and phonological awareness contribute to children's acquisition of reading and spelling skills. A further candidate in this regard is orthographic knowledge (i.e., the knowledge about permissible letter patterns). It consists of two components, word-specific (i.e., the knowledge of the spelling of…

Pyhältö, Kirsi; Pietarinen, Janne; Haverinen, Kaisa; Tikkanen, Lotta; Soini, Tiina – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2021
Teacher burnout has been identified as a significant occupational hazard. However, our understanding about individual variations in burnout risk among in-service teachers is still less than sufficient. This study explored socio-contextual burnout risk profiles and their association with the reported use of proactive strategies among in-service…

Badia, Antoni; Liesa, Eva; Becerril, Lorena; Mayoral, Paula – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
Over the last 30 years, a substantial number of publications have attempted to conceptualise the ways in which teachers carry out inquiries in order to affect changes in educational practice. A number of different psychological models have been applied to the study of teachers' activities as inquirers, including models focusing on teachers'…
