Herrmann, Julia; Schmidt, Isabelle; Kessels, Ursula; Preckel, Franzis – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2016
Background: Ability grouping can lower students' academic self-perceptions through reference group effects of class-average achievement on academic self-concept (ASC)--the "Big-fish-little-Pond"-effect (BFLPE; Marsh & Parker, 1984, J. "Pers. Soc. Psychol.," 47, 213). Although the effect itself is well documented, many open…

Jõgi, Anna-Liisa; Kikas, Eve – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2016
Background: Primary school math skills form a basis for academic success down the road. Different math skills have different antecedents and there is a reason to believe that more complex math tasks require better self-regulation. Aims: The study aimed to investigate longitudinal interrelations of calculation and problem-solving skills, and…

El-Khechen, Wahiba; Ferdinand, Hanna D.; Steinmayr, Ricarda; McElvany, Nele – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2016
Background: Although various studies on general language performance have investigated determinants of students' reading comprehension (e.g., reading amount), they have paid insufficient attention to how students perceive parental values influence their language-related values and behaviour--and, as a consequence, their performance. This is…

Williams, Kate E.; Nicholson, Jan M.; Walker, Sue; Berthelsen, Donna – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2016
Background: Children's sleep problems and self-regulation problems have been independently associated with poorer adjustment to school, but there has been limited exploration of longitudinal early childhood profiles that include both indicators. Aims: This study explores the normative developmental pathway for sleep problems and self-regulation…

King, Ronnel B.; McInerney, Dennis M. – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2016
Background: Goal theory research has mostly focused on the unidirectional effects of goals on learning strategies and academic achievement. Reciprocal relationships have mostly been neglected. Aims: The primary aim of this study was to examine the reciprocal relations and causal ordering of mastery goals, metacognitive strategy use, and academic…

Sjoblom, Amanda M.; Eaton, Elizabeth; Stagg, Steven D. – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2016
Background: Zorzi et al. (2012, Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U.S.A., 109, 11455) found evidence that extra-large letter spacing aids children with dyslexia, but the evidence for the coloured overlays is contradictory (e.g., Henderson et al., 2013, "J. Res. Special Educ. Needs," 13, 57; Wilkins, 2002, "Ophthalmic Physiol. Opt.," 22,…

Follmer, D. Jake; Sperling, Rayne A. – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2016
Background: Researchers have demonstrated significant relations among executive function, metacognition, and self-regulated learning. However, prior research emphasized the use of indirect measures of executive function and did not evaluate how specific executive functions are related to participants' self-regulated learning. Aims: The primary…

Rittle-Johnson, Bethany; Fyfe, Emily R.; Loehr, Abbey M. – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2016
Background: Students, parents, teachers, and theorists often advocate for direct instruction on both concepts and procedures, but some theorists suggest that including instruction on procedures in combination with concepts may limit learning opportunities and student understanding. Aims: This study evaluated the effect of instruction on a math…

Brown, Gavin T. L.; Peterson, Elizabeth R.; Yao, Esther S. – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2016
Background: Lecturers give feedback on assessed work in the hope that students will take it on board and use it to help regulate their learning for the next assessment. However, little is known about how students' conceptions of feedback relate to students' self-regulated learning and self-efficacy beliefs and academic performance. Aims: This…

Kollerová, Lenka; Smolík, Filip – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2016
Background: Past research has shown that peer victimization by bullying is associated with peer rejection and fear of victimization, but little is known about the interplay between victimization and other characteristics in the prediction of these experiences. We assume that the associations between victimization and peer rejection/fear of…

Li, Weijian; Ji, Haojie; Li, Fengying; Li, Ping; Zhang, Yuchi; Li, Xinyu – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2016
Background: Like adults, children need to allocate study time and endeavour optimally in order to enhance learning effectiveness. Aims: The aim of this study was to investigate the development of shifting from habitual to agenda-based processes on study decisions. Sample: The participants were 309 children in the second, fourth, and sixth grades.…

Bianco, Federica; Lecce, Serena – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2016
Background: Translating research findings into practice should be one of the objectives of developmental psychology. Recently, research demonstrated the existence of individual differences in theory of mind (ToM) during middle childhood that are crucial for children's academic and social adjustment. Aims: This study aims to transfer the results of…

Reeves, Philip M.; Sperling, Rayne A. – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2015
Background: Current post-secondary school students have access to multiple help-seeking sources. As help-seeking behaviour relates to academic achievement, the provision of preferred help sources would be beneficial to students, instructors, and course designers. Aims: This study examines whether students prefer and intend to utilize…

Elliot, Andrew; Murayama, Kou; Kobeisy, Ahmed; Lichtenfeld, Stephanie – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2015
Background: Self-based achievement goals use one's own intrapersonal trajectory as a standard of evaluation, and this intrapersonal trajectory may be grounded in one's past (past-based goals) or one's future potential (potential-based goals). Potential-based goals have been overlooked in the literature to date. Aims: The primary aim of the present…

Anderman, Eric M.; Gimbert, Belinda; O'Connell, Ann A.; Riegel, Lisa – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2015
Background: There is much interest in assessing growth in student learning. Assessments of growth have important implications and affect many policy decisions at many levels. Aims: In the present article, we review some of the different approaches to measuring growth and examine the implications of their usage. Sample: Samples used in research on…
