Jones, Daniella L.; Nelson, Jonathan D.; Opitz, Bertram – Psychology Learning and Teaching, 2021
Anxiety is one of the most prevalent mental health problems; it is known to impede cognitive functioning. It is believed to alter preferences for feedback-based learning in anxious and non-anxious learners. Thus, the present study measured feedback processing in adults (N = 30) with and without anxiety symptoms using a probabilistic learning task.…

Pieper, Martin; Roelle, Julian; vom Hofe, Rudolf; Salle, Alexander; Berthold, Kirsten – Psychology Learning and Teaching, 2021
The main goal of this study was to test whether feedback from a lecturer and tutor on an initial reflective journal entry fosters reflection quality in a subsequent journal entry and reflection skills in student teachers. To address these questions, we, a team of educators and psychologists, conducted a field experiment during the practical…

Enders, Natalie; Gaschler, Robert; Kubik, Veit – Psychology Learning and Teaching, 2021
Online-quizzes are an economic and objective method for formative assessment in universities. However, closed questions have been criticized for promoting shallow learning and resulting often in poor learning outcomes. These disadvantages can be overcome by embedding closed questions in effective instructional designs involving feedback. In the…

den Boer, Anton W. J. P.; Verkoeijen, Peter P. J. L.; Heijltjes, Anita E. G. – Psychology Learning and Teaching, 2021
Cumulative assessment refers to interspersed testing in which each assessment covers all previous content and the mean assessments' grade weighs in for the final exam grade. The effect of cumulative assessment on motivation and performance might differ between summative (i.e. assessment grades weigh in for the final exam grade) and formative (i.e.…

Bertilsson, Frida; Stenlund, Tova; Wiklund-Hörnqvist, Carola; Jonsson, Bert – Psychology Learning and Teaching, 2021
Retrieval practice is a learning technique that is known to produce enhanced long-term memory retention when compared to several other techniques. This difference in learning outcome is commonly called "the testing effect". Yet there is little research on how individual differences in personality traits and working memory capacity…

Endres, Tino; Leber, Jasmin; Böttger, Cornelius; Rovers, Sane; Renkl, Alexander – Psychology Learning and Teaching, 2021
The foundation of how students usually learn is laid early in their academic lives. However, many or even most students do not primarily rely on those learning strategies that are most favorable from a scientific point of view. To change students' learning behavior when they start their university education, we developed a computer-based adaptive…

Giebl, Saskia; Mena, Stefany; Storm, Benjamin C.; Bjork, Elizabeth Ligon; Bjork, Robert A. – Psychology Learning and Teaching, 2021
Technological advances have given us tools--Google, in particular--that can both augment and free up our cognitive resources. Research has demonstrated, however, that some cognitive costs may arise from our reliance on such external memories. We examined whether pretesting--asking participants to solve a problem before consulting Google for needed…

Kroneisen, Meike; Kuepper-Tetzel, Carolina E. – Psychology Learning and Teaching, 2021
Sleep right after studying new material is more conducive to memory than a period of wakefulness. Another way to counteract forgetting is to practice retrieval: taking a test strengthens memory more effectively than restudying the material. The current work aims at investigating the interaction between sleep and testing by asking if testing adds…

van Beek, Yolanda – Psychology Learning and Teaching, 2021
In previous years students in the advanced bachelor course Developmental Psychopathology often failed examination questions where they had to apply theoretical knowledge to realistic clinical issues. Therefore, a new teaching method was implemented to improve students' understanding. Flipped classroom (FC) and team-based learning (TBL) techniques…

Pieschl, Stephanie; Budd, Janene; Thomm, Eva; Archer, Jennifer – Psychology Learning and Teaching, 2021
Fostering metacognitive awareness of misconceptions should enhance deep processing of scientifically correct explanations and thereby decrease misconceptions. To explore these potentially beneficial effects, we conducted a field study implemented in a regular educational psychology course in an Australian teacher education program. In a two-by-two…

Poorthuis, Astrid M. G.; van Dijk, Anouk – Psychology Learning and Teaching, 2021
Many students use ineffective learning strategies. They tend to start too late and learn in a superficial way, without integrating different parts of the study materials. To help students in "Psychological Assessment in Youth" overcome these problems, we designed online study-aids to spread their learning over the semester (distributed…

Narciss, Susanne; Hammer, Elsa; Damnik, Gregor; Kisielski, Kerstin; Körndle, Hermann – Psychology Learning and Teaching, 2021
Formative assessment and feedback strategies play a core role in effective learning and instruction. Thus, teachers should be able to effectively apply the theoretical and empirical insights on formative assessment and feedback strategies in their classrooms. However, designing and implementing formative feedback strategies are complex tasks.…

Moser, Stephanie; Zumbach, Joerg; Deibl, Ines; Geiger, Viola; Martinek, Daniela – Psychology Learning and Teaching, 2021
Epistemological beliefs are subjective views about the nature of knowledge and knowing. A large number of research approaches are dedicated to this field. Yet, there is no research investigating the beliefs that pre-service teachers have towards educational psychology, a highly relevant domain for their prospective profession. Based on this…

Many organizations dedicated to learning and teaching in the field of psychology struggle with diversifying and widening international representation. The drive for diversification of membership and leadership occurs as such groups increasingly prioritize diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives. In this paper, we offer evidence-based guidance…
