Rogiers, Amelie; Merchie, Emmelien; Van Keer, Hilde – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
This study investigates the correlation between three data gathering methods for uncovering differences in secondary school students' text-learning strategy use. In total, 56 secondary school students' text-learning strategies were assessed with (a) a task-specific self-report inventory, (b) think-alouds protocols, and (c) the trace methodology.…

Liu, Ying; Liu, Ru-De; Star, Jon R.; Wang, Jia; Tong, Huimin – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
Recent research has shown that reducing the perceptual fluency of shape processing can be an effective means for overcoming the interference of the More A-More B intuitive rule among grade 3 students in a perimeter comparison task. From the perspective of cognitive load, the current study focused on the mechanism of perceptual fluency on…

Yi, Hui; Tian, Lili; Huebner, E. Scott – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
Based on the self-system model of motivational development, we examined the mediating role of school engagement, including cognitive engagement and behavioral engagement, in accounting for the relation between mastery goal orientations and subjective well-being in school among elementary school students. A total of 974 Chinese children (440…

Bardach, Lisa; Lüftenegger, Marko; Oczlon, Sophie; Spiel, Christiane; Schober, Barbara – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
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…

Wirthwein, Linda; Sparfeldt, Jörn R.; Heyder, Anke; Buch, Susanne R.; Rost, Detlef H.; Steinmayr, Ricarda – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
Many studies have already found differences between male and female students in various motivational variables. With regard to the stereotypes associated to different school subjects, boys usually are more motivated in math or sciences whereas girls score higher in verbal subjects such as languages. Studies investigating sex differences in…

Vasalampi, Kati; Pakarinen, Eija; Torppa, Minna; Viljaranta, Jaana; Lerkkanen, Marja-Kristiina; Poikkeus, Anna-Maija – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
According to the big-fish-little-pond effect (BFLP) model, high individual academic performance in a particular subject is related to high self-concept in that subject, whereas high average classroom performance has a negative effect on self-concept. In the present study, data from Finnish primary school students in grade 3 (504 students), grade 4…

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…

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…

Vicente, Santiago; Sánchez, Rosario; Verschaffel, Lieven – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
Singaporean children are the best performers on international achievement tests in mathematics (i.e. the TIMSS). Their excellent results could be due at least partly to certain characteristics of the textbooks used there (Oates 2014). Therefore, these materials could be taken as a good benchmark to describe and evaluate aspects of the textbooks of…

Pit-ten Cate, Ineke M.; Hörstermann, Thomas; Krolak-Schwerdt, Sabine; Gräsel, Cornelia; Böhmer, Ines; Glock, Sabine – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
Research has shown that teachers are able to adapt their processing strategy of student information to situational demands, whereby they flexibly use either an automatic and category-based strategy or a controlled and information-integrating strategy. However, the effect of teachers' accountability for task and the consistency of student…

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.…

González-Forte, Juan Manuel; Fernández, Ceneida; Van Hoof, Jo; Van Dooren, Wim – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
Understanding rational numbers is a complex task for primary and secondary school students. Previous research has shown that a possible reason is students' tendency to apply the properties of natural numbers (inappropriately) when they are working with rational numbers (a phenomenon called "natural number bias"). Focusing on rational…

Vanluydt, Elien; Degrande, Tine; Verschaffel, Lieven; Van Dooren, Wim – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
The present study cross-sectionally investigated proportional reasoning abilities in 5- to 9-year-old children (n = 185) before they received instruction in proportional reasoning. This study addressed two important aspects of the development of proportional reasoning that remain unclear in the current literature: (1) the age range in which it…
