Wondra, Trent K.; McCrea, Sean M. – Social Psychology of Education: An International Journal, 2022
Self-handicapping is a defensive response to self-doubt about one's abilities to perform well on an upcoming task.

Although past research has focused on individual-level threats to identity, self-doubt could also result…

Nishen, Anna K.; Kessels, Ursula – Social Psychology of Education: An International Journal, 2022
When providing feedback, teachers are concerned not only with the simple transmission of information, but also with motivational and interpersonal dynamics. To mitigate these concerns, teachers may inflate feedback by reducing negative or increasing positive content. The resulting difference between initial judgments and feedback may be even more…

Mariss, Antonia; Wenzel, Kristin; Grünberg, Chawwah; Reinhard, Marc-André – Social Psychology of Education: An International Journal, 2022
Previous work has shown that challenging learning strategies like "desirable difficulties" improve long-term learning. Nonetheless, because they might be regarded as strict and demanding learning strategies, they should not be perceived as positive by everyone. They should, however, fit conservative political attitudes since those are,…

In a complex and systemic view of human development, the educational relationship is conceived as the keystone of development (Pianta, 1999; Pianta, 2001). However, harsh discipline practices may still be culturally rooted, thus affecting children's well-being. Two constructs that may provide useful insights on this topic are Adultcentrism (AD)…

Critical consciousness (CC) has been linked to academic and civic engagement for students from marginalized backgrounds, but little work has examined CC for students from more privileged groups.
