Herrero Romero, Rocio; Hall, James; Cluver, Lucie – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2019
Background: Many adolescents in South Africa are exposed to multiple types of violence, socio-economic disadvantage, and low-quality education: all risk factors for educational outcomes including school delay (grade enrolment below that which is age-appropriate). Supportive teacher-student relationships are known to be associated with improved…

Lowrie, Tom; Logan, Tracy; Ramful, Ajay – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2017
Background: Although spatial ability and mathematics performance are highly correlated, there is scant research on the extent to which spatial ability training can improve mathematics performance. Aims: This study evaluated the efficacy of a visuospatial intervention programme within classrooms to determine the effect on students' (1) spatial…

Chu, Junyi; Rittle-Johnson, Bethany; Fyfe, Emily R. – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2017
Background: The format of a mathematics problem often influences students' problem-solving performance. For example, providing diagrams in conjunction with story problems can benefit students' understanding, choice of strategy, and accuracy on story problems. However, it remains unclear whether providing diagrams in conjunction with symbolic…

Van der Beek, Jojanneke P. J.; Van der Ven, Sanne H. G.; Kroesbergen, Evelyn H.; Leseman, Paul P. M. – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2017
Background: Mathematics achievement is related to positive and negative emotions. Pekrun's control-value theory of achievement emotions suggests that students' self-concept (i.e., self-appraisal of ability) may be an important mediator of the relation between mathematics achievement and emotions. Aims: The aims were (1) to investigate the…

Chamberlin, Scott A.; Moore, Alan D.; Parks, Kelly – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2017
Background: Student affect plays a considerable role in mathematical problem solving performance, yet is rarely formally assessed. In this manuscript, an instrument and its properties are discussed to enable educational psychologists the opportunity to assess student affect. Aims: The study was conducted to norm the CAIMPS (instrument) with gifted…

Van Hoof, Jo; Verschaffel, Lieven; Van Dooren, Wim – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2017
Background: Rational numbers are of critical importance both in mathematics and in other fields of science. However, they form a stumbling block for learners. One widely known source of the difficulty learners have with rational numbers is the natural number bias, that is the tendency to (inappropriately) apply natural number properties in…

Thiede, Keith W.; Redford, Joshua S.; Wiley, Jennifer; Griffin, Thomas D. – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2017
Background: Self-regulated learning requires accurate monitoring and effective regulation of study. Little is known about how effectively younger readers regulate their study. Aims: We examined how decisions about which text to restudy affect overall comprehension for seventh-grade students. In addition to a "Participant's Choice"…

Otumfuor, Beryl Ann; Carr, Martha – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2017
Background: Spatial skills have been linked to better performance in mathematics. Aim The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between teacher spatial skills and their instruction, including teacher content and pedagogical knowledge, use of pictorial representations, and use of gestures during geometry instruction. Sample:…

Scrimin, Sara; Moscardino, Ughetta; Altoè, Gianmarco; Mason, Lucia – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2016
Background: Previous research indicates that children can display different attention allocation patterns in response to threat. However, data are lacking on the possible existence of an attentional bias in response to academic stressors, and whether variables related to school well-being (SWB) and students' individual characteristics may…

Verniers, Catherine; Martinot, Delphine; Dompnier, Benoît – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2016
Background: The feminization of school hypothesis suggests that boys underachieve in school compared to girls because school rewards feminine characteristics that are at odds with boys' masculine features. Aims: The feminization of school hypothesis lacks empirical evidence. The aim of this study was to test this hypothesis by examining the extent…

Meissel, Kane; Rubie-Davies, Christine M. – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2016
Background: There is substantial evidence indicating that various psychological processes are affected by cultural context, but such research is comparatively nascent within New Zealand. As there are four large cultural groups in New Zealand, representing an intersection of individualist, collectivist, indigenous, colonial, and immigrant cultures,…

Ahn, Hyun Seon; Usher, Ellen L.; Butz, Amanda; Bong, Mimi – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2016
Background: The potential role of culture in the development and operation of self-efficacy has been acknowledged by researchers. Clearer understanding of this cultural impact will benefit from research that shows how the same efficacy information is evaluated across cultures. Aims: We tested whether two sources of self-efficacy information…
