Ratelle, Catherine F.; Duchesne, Stéphane; Litalien, David; Plamondon, André – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2021
School is where adolescents spend the largest share of their waking time. The present study focused on the factors that contribute to students' adjustment to school from a self-determination perspective. We tested the predictive value of parental behaviors (autonomy support, structure, and involvement) on the different dimensions of school…

Wentzel, Kathryn R.; Jablansky, Sophie; Scalise, Nicole R. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2021
Using meta-analytic techniques, we examined systematically the evidence linking peer social acceptance to academic achievement. Based on 72 studies that yielded 157 effect sizes, we analyzed relations between social acceptance and academic outcomes (e.g., academic grades, test scores), including the extent to which relations were moderated by sex,…

Munzar, Brendan; Muis, Krista R.; Denton, Courtney A.; Losenno, Kelsey – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2021
We propose a model delineating the role of control, value, and cognitive disequilibrium in elementary students' experience of emotions during mathematics problem solving. We tested this model across 2 studies. In Study 1, using an explanatory mixed-methods design, 136 students from Grades 3 to 6 worked on a complex mathematics problem appropriate…

Petersen, Isaac T.; LeBeau, Brandon – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2021
Poorer language ability has been shown to predict the development of externalizing behavior problems such as aggression and conduct problems. However, the developmental process that links poorer language ability to externalizing problems is unclear. The present study examined (a) whether within-child changes in language ability predict…

Goodwin, Amanda P.; Cho, Sun-Joo; Reynolds, Dan; Silverman, Rebecca; Nunn, Stephanie – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2021
The current study reports on a large-scale quantitative analysis of classroom talk practices and links to different measures of reading achievement within upper elementary classrooms. Data involving 745 fourth- and fifth-grade teachers and 18,844 students from the Measures of Effective Teaching (MET) study were used. Talk was quantified via…

Kuo, Yi-Lung; Casillas, Alex; Allen, Jeff; Robbins, Steve – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2021
The moderating effects of motivation, social control, and self-regulation in predicting academic achievement were examined in Grades 11-12 for 3,281 seventh through nine graders. Standardized assessments of college readiness and student self-reported measures of psychosocial factors were used in the study. The results showed that females in Grades…

Moghimi, Darya; Van Yperen, Nico W.; Sense, Florian; Zacher, Hannes; Scheibe, Susanne – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2021
Statistics on study disruptions and delays and their negative impact on academic performance call for action-regulation strategies that students can use to manage their performance and well-being. In the present research, we rely on the action-regulation model of selection, optimization, and compensation (SOC), which was developed in the life span…

Wissinger, Daniel R.; De La Paz, Susan; Jackson, Cara – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2021
In this quasi-experimental study, 608 fourth-, fifth-, and sixth-grade students explored 5 historical investigations. In the experimental condition, teachers used a cognitive apprenticeship model to teach students historical reading and writing strategies. Comparison teachers used the same materials to deliver a business-as-usual form of…

Yan, Veronica X.; Sana, Faria – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2021
When learning new information, should students focus on studying 1 concept at a time or should they alternate studying between different concepts? Recent research shows that students should mix up or interleave the study of different concepts, particularly when the concepts are related or hard to discriminate (Carvalho & Goldstone, 2015). But…

Fuchs, Lynn S.; Seethaler, Pamela M.; Sterba, Sonya K.; Craddock, Caitlin; Fuchs, Douglas; Compton, Donald L.; Geary, David C.; Changas, Paul – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2021
The main purpose of this study was to test the effects of word-problem (WP) intervention, with versus without embedded language comprehension (LC) instruction, on at-risk 1st graders' WP performance. We also isolated the need for a structured approach to WP intervention and tested the efficacy of schema-based instruction at 1st grade. Children (n…

Kim, James S.; Burkhauser, Mary A.; Mesite, Laura M.; Asher, Catherine A.; Relyea, Jackie Eunjung; Fitzgerald, Jill; Elmore, Jeff – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2021
This study investigated the effectiveness of the Model of Reading Engagement (MORE), a content literacy intervention, on first graders' science domain knowledge, reading engagement, and reading comprehension. The MORE intervention emphasizes the role of domain knowledge and reading engagement in supporting reading comprehension. MORE lessons…

Xu, Qinfang; Tao, Sha; Li, Shifeng; Wang, Wenjing; Li, Beilei; Joshi, R. Malatesha – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2021
The purpose of this study was to examine the profiles of nonresponders among native Chinese-speaking students struggling in English reading before and after an intensive intervention in phonological awareness as well as letter knowledge. Struggling English learners (n = 72) were screened from 668 Grade 4 students based on their English word…

Rosenzweig, Emily Q.; Harackiewicz, Judith M.; Hecht, Cameron A.; Priniski, Stacy J.; Canning, Elizabeth A.; Tibbetts, Yoi; Asher, Michael W.; Hyde, Janet S. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2021
This study examined whether students who left biomedical fields of study during college did so primarily because they became disenchanted with those fields or because they felt attracted to alternative fields of study. We identified 1,193 students intending to pursue biomedical fields of study early in college, collected data about their beliefs…

Ramos, Alicia; De Fraine, Bieke; Verschueren, Karine – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2021
Learning goal orientation is a prominent motivational construct that has been linked to positive student outcomes. For high-ability students, a lack of mastery learning goals has been theoretically and empirically associated with underachievement. However, longitudinal research examining the development and outcomes of their learning goal…

Huo, Shuting; Zhang, Xiao; Law, Yin Kum – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2021
Drawing on Geary's (1995) evolution-based model of cognitive and academic development, this study investigated the relation between biologically primary skills (vocabulary, executive functions, and visual-spatial processing) and subsequent word reading and calculation. It also examined the extent to which these relations were mediated by…
