Hickendorff, Marian – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2018
Strategy flexibility, adaptivity, and the use of clever shortcut strategies are of major importance in current primary school mathematics education worldwide. However, empirical results show that primary school students use such shortcut strategies rather infrequently. The aims of the present study were to analyze the extent to which Dutch sixth…

List, Alexandra; Peterson, Emily Grossnickle; Alexander, Patricia A.; Loyens, Sofie M. M. – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2018
Beliefs about knowledge have been found to relate to a variety of student outcomes and to vary across educational domains and instructional contexts. However, there are limited data on students' beliefs about information and truth, vis-à-vis knowledge (i.e., epistemic beliefs) and how these beliefs differ across instructional settings.…

Burns, Richard A.; Crisp, Dimity A.; Burns, Robert B. – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2018
A hierarchical and multi-dimensional model of self-concept is well-validated. Despite increasing evidence that self-concept comprises two latent factors related to perceptions of 'competence' and 'affect,' many researchers continue to examine the impact of a unitary self-concept on educational outcomes. This study explores evidence for a 2-factor…

This cross-lagged longitudinal study examines the evocative impact of a child's psychological adjustment on teachers' affective response and instructional support for a child, and the influence this support and response has on the child's subsequent adjustment. A hundred and seventeen Finnish teachers self-rated the instructional support they…

Marcotte, Diane; Diallo, Thierno M. O.; Paré, Marie-Laurence – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2018
Many studies have reported an increase in mental health problems during post-secondary transition, often originating from high school years. The present study examined how depressive symptoms during the 2 years following the post-secondary transition could be predicted by, on the one hand, school performance, externalized and learning…

van Rooij, Els C. M.; Jansen, Ellen P. W. A.; van de Grift, Wim J. C. M. – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2018
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,…

Vezzani, Claudio; Vettori, Giulia; Pinto, Giuliana – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2018
Research on students' conceptions of learning is a growing and complex area of interest in the field of psychology of education. Even though much of the investigation addressed to explore conceptions of learning at the university level, still less research has considered how naïve (i.e. 'learning as reduction of deficit knowledge through…

Hascoët, Marine; Pansu, Pascal; Bouffard, Thèrèse; Leroy, Nadia – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2018
When children perceive a conditional support, they only feel loved and encouraged for their ability to meet others' standards. This may lead them to develop high sensitivity to errors and anxiety and low perception of competence. In this study, we examined the relationship between the perceived conditional support from teacher and children's…

Darnon, Céline; Jury, Mickaël; Aelenei, Cristina – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2018
Although approach forms of achievement goals (mastery and performance goals) have been shown to predict academic achievement in college, recent research underscores that these associations are rather weak and not consistently observed. The present study tests students' social class (in the present research, generational status) as a moderator of…

Khany, Reza; Amiri, Majid – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2018
Theoretical developments in second or foreign language motivation research have led to a better understanding of the convoluted nature of motivation in the process of language acquisition. Among these theories, action control theory has recently shown a good deal of explanatory power in second language learning contexts and in the presence of…

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…

Barrera, Andrea Eugenia; Schuster, Beate – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2018
In this research, we examined cross-domain effects of achievement goals. In two experimental studies, we manipulated achievement goals and assessed social reactions towards a hypothetical (study 1) and a real (study 2) target. Measurement of social reactions included prosocial behaviours such as helping, sharing and cooperating with others.…

Bodvin, Kathleen; Verschueren, Karine; De Haene, Lucia; Struyf, Elke – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2018
As low socioeconomic status (SES) and ethnic minority students often experience barriers during their school career, increased levels of referral of these students to extramural support services in education (ESS) can be expected. Yet, research indicates that disadvantaged students are often underrepresented in different types of ESS. The purpose…

Brandenberger, Claudia C.; Hagenauer, Gerda; Hascher, Tina – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2018
Especially for students in lower achievement levels, there is a significant negative trend in academic self-determined motivation across childhood through adolescence and more so in maths than in any other school subject. To counteract this negative development, a multicomponent intervention study based on the main ideas of self-determination…

Rotsaert, Tijs; Panadero, Ernesto; Schellens, Tammy; Raes, Annelies – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2018
This study explores the effects of peer assessment (PA) practice on peer feedback (PF) quality of 11th grade secondary education students (N = 36). The PA setting was synchronous: anonymous assessors gave immediate PF using mobile response technology during 10 feedback occasions. The design was quasi-experimental (experimental vs. control…
