Arikan, Serkan; van de Vijver, Fons J. R.; Yagmur, Kutlay – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
The few studies on the achievement differences of mainstream and immigrant primary school students in large-scale assessments point to an achievement gap in many subject areas, with immigrant students trailing mainstream students. A recurrent methodological problem of these studies is that the two student groups do not come from comparable…

Zhoc, Karen C. H.; King, Ronnel B.; Chung, Tony S. H.; Chen, Junjun – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
The role of emotions in student engagement has been examined in many studies. However, little is known about how emotional intelligence (EI) is related to engagement and other key learning outcomes in higher education. To fill this gap, this study examined how EI is associated with student engagement and how EI and engagement jointly predict key…

Using data from second-grade students (N = 288, M[subscript age]=7.8), the study drew upon a cross-lagged panel design to…

Harks, Marvin; Hannover, Bettina – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
Feeling socially well embedded in the classroom's peer network is a predictor of many positive developmental outcomes, such as engagement at school. But what does feeling embedded depend on? We investigated the impact of both peers and the teacher. Peer status, measured by sociometric sympathy-based peer nominations, and peer victimization,…

Differentiated instruction is considered to be an important teaching quality domain to address the needs of individual students in daily classroom practices. However, little is known about whether differentiated instruction is empirically distinguishable from other teaching quality domains in different national contexts. Additionally, little is…

Egloff, Frank; Souvignier, Elmar – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
Teachers' adaptivity of constructivist and direct-transmissive beliefs may be beneficial for students' learning based on the theoretical claim that low-ability students need more teacher guidance than high-ability students. The goals of our study were to validate a new questionnaire that measures teachers' adaptivity of beliefs and to investigate…

Cincinnato, Sebastiano; Engels, Nadine; Consuegra, Els – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
This study investigates to what extent differences in ability and effort attributions can explain students' reluctance to reorient after failure in the first year at the university. Reluctance to reorient after failure increases the likelihood of drop out. The empirical investigation is based on a sample of fulltime first-entry bachelor students…

Räty, Hannu; Hytti, Ulla; Kasanen, Kati; Komulainen, Katri; Siivonen, Päivi; Kozlinska, Inna – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
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'…

Hennessey, Alexandra; Humphrey, Neil – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
Despite the significant evidence base demonstrating the positive impact of the Promoting Alternative Thinking Strategies (PATHS) curriculum on children's social-emotional and mental health outcomes, there has been very little research on its efficacy in improving academic attainment. More generally, the relationship between implementation…

The purpose of the present study was to examine individual and contextual predictors of victimization and bullying on a sample of early adolescents. Using both self-reports and peer nominations for victimization and bullying assessment, potential differential predictors for self- vs. peer-reported victimization and bullying were examined. A total…

Rawlings, Anna Maria; Tapola, Anna; Niemivirta, Markku – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
Students' goal strivings are known to be connected with important outcomes, both academically and with regard to individual well-being. In spite of their importance, our knowledge of factors contributing to their early development is rather limited. In this longitudinal study on school beginners (N = 212), we focused on the interrelationships…

Guevara, Irene; Moreno-Llanos, Iván; Rodríguez, Cintia – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
The psychological literature on the development of gestures during the first year of life has been limited. It has mainly focused on the development of pointing at around 11 months of age, considering it "the" gesture that allows triadic interactions. However, recent studies have argued for the importance of earlier ostensive gestures…

Grossen, Michèle; Muller Mirza, Nathalie – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
In Switzerland, as elsewhere, issues dealing with cultural diversity raise major challenges in education. At present, little is known about how students make sense of these highly sensitive societal issues and relate them to their everyday experience. Drawing on a sociocultural and dialogical approach to learning, this study aimed at understanding…

Lavoie, Natalie; Morin, Marie-France; Coallier, Mélissa; Alamargot, Denis – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
Learning to write involves the acquisition of several skills, not the least of which is handwriting. Indeed, studies in cognitive psychology have clearly demonstrated that it takes time to acquire this complex skill. The present study aimed to assess the effectiveness of an explicit multicomponent alphabet writing instruction program implemented…
