Pasha-Zaidi, Nausheen; Afari, Ernest; Sevi, Baris; Urganci, Betul; Durham, Justin – Learning Environments Research, 2019
The present study explored the relationship between grit, motivational beliefs and self-regulation among undergraduate students in the United States, the United Arab Emirates and Turkey. These factors place the responsibility of learning on the students, rather than the educational environment. As most studies continue to focus on Western,…

Wijsman, Lindy A.; Saab, Nadira; Schuitema, Jaap; van Driel, Jan H.; Westenberg, P. Michiel – Learning Environments Research, 2019
During the early stages of secondary education students' motivation and performance levels decline. This study employed a case study approach to evaluate a learning environment called GUTS; Differentiated Challenging of Talent in School. GUTS was specifically designed to raise performance and motivation through a combination of (a) talent lessons…

Pulay, Alana; Williamson, Amy – Learning Environments Research, 2019
Studies suggest that the learning environment can act as a third teacher in contributing towards student academic success. A variable within the physical learning environment that has received little attention in the literature is the interior lighting. Because of budget constraints and age, most American public school classrooms have fluorescent…

Thomas, Christopher L.; Pavlechko, Gary M.; Cassady, Jerrell C. – Learning Environments Research, 2019
Ball State University re-designed five classrooms--as part of an Interactive Learning Space (ILS) Initiative--to provide educators with learning spaces that could be used to implement and assess the effectiveness of student-centred instructional practices. The purpose of the current investigation was to explore how pedagogy implemented within ILSs…

Cipriano, Christina; Barnes, Tia Navelene; Kolev, Lyubo; Rivers, Susan; Brackett, Marc – Learning Environments Research, 2019
Teacher-student interactions contribute to the quality of the classroom environment. Although numerous measures of these interactions exist, few target the affective expression and reception of interactions directly. To fill this need, we detail the piloting and psychometric validation a self-report measure, the Emotion-Focused Interactions (EFI)…

Lin, Shuqiong; Salazar, Timothy R.; Wu, Shuang – Learning Environments Research, 2019
Utilising data from a research university (N = 7219), we examined the extent to which three factors, climate of diversity (COD), course learning experience (CLE) and research practice experience, predicted undergraduates' overall satisfaction. COD was the most influential predictor of student satisfaction after controlling for the other two. In…

Salmi, Hannu; Thuneberg, Helena – Learning Environments Research, 2019
The goal of this research was to explore cognitive, self-determined learning and autonomous motivational effects in the context of a mobile science exhibition (N = 256) in Finland. The pupils were sixth-graders with an average age of 12 years 6 months. Autonomy experience, as measured by the Relative Autonomy Index (RAI), had an effect on how the…

Scherzinger, Marion; Wettstein, Alexander – Learning Environments Research, 2019
This study used questionnaires and systematic behavioural observations to examine how teachers, students and external observers perceived classroom disruptions, the teacher-student relationship and classroom management in grade 5 and 6 classrooms in Switzerland. The questionnaire showed that the students of a class agreed to a certain extent in…

Deieso, Donato; Fraser, Barry J. – Learning Environments Research, 2019
Past research has revealed that, relative to primary-school students, high-school students have less-positive attitudes to mathematics and perceive their classroom environments and teacher--student relationships less favourably. This study involved the transition experience of 541 students in 47 classes in 15 primary (year 7) and secondary (year…

Szlyk, Hannah Selene – Learning Environments Research, 2018
At-risk behaviours, including substance abuse, suicidal ideation and delinquency, are prevalent amongst teenage youth in high-school settings. Focusing on the academic and emotional needs of their students encourages teachers to have thoughtful interactions and be continually aware of the problems of their students. Evidence-based interventions,…

Wijnen, Marit; Loyens, Sofie M. M.; Wijnia, Lisette; Smeets, Guus; Kroeze, Maarten J.; Van der Molen, Henk T. – Learning Environments Research, 2018
In this study, a mixed-method design was employed to investigate the association between a student-centred, problem-based learning (PBL) method and law students' motivation. Self-determination theory (SDT) states that autonomous motivation, which is associated with higher academic performance, can be reached when there is fulfillment of three…

Deemer, Eric D.; Smith, Jessi L. – Learning Environments Research, 2018
The current research examined the psychometric properties and utility of a measure of college classroom environment in predicting goal-related outcomes rooted in goal contents and achievement goal theories. Exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses in Studies 1 and 2, respectively, yielded support for two distinct and gender-invariant classroom…

Hsu, Pei-Ling; Espinoza, Penelope – Learning Environments Research, 2018
Working with scientists has been suggested as an effective way for high-school students to learn authentic science. However, little research has involved students' perceptions of science learning environments in a university internship. This study drew on the theoretical framework of community of practice with cogenerative dialogues to design an…

Koul, Rekha B.; Fraser, Barry J.; Maynard, Nicoleta; Tade, Moses – Learning Environments Research, 2018
Because the importance of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education continues to be recognised around the world, we developed and validated an instrument to assess the learning environment and student attitudes in STEM classrooms, with a specific focus on engineering and technology (E&T) activities in primary schools.…

Roshandel, Shadi; Hudley, Cynthia – Learning Environments Research, 2018
During late childhood and early adolescence, there is a dramatic increase in cognitive skills which influences how young people begin to think about their futures. The construct of possible selves has been used to help understanding of adolescents' views of their future plans and goals by exploring their social perceptions to gain insight about…
