Weissgerber, Sophia C.; Reinhard, Marc-André; Schindler, Simon – Educational Psychology, 2018
We investigate the relationship between Need for Cognition (NFC), attitude towards and self-reported application of different desirable difficulties in self-regulated learning. Students with a higher NFC should be more appreciative and prone to use desirable difficulties because of a match between the learner's attributes and the learning task…

Collie, Rebecca J.; Ginns, Paul; Martin, Andrew J.; Papworth, Brad – Educational Psychology, 2017
A primary goal our study was to explore whether relations between academic anxiety and students' use of a range of learning strategies (memorisation, elaboration, personal best [PB] goals and cooperation) were mediated by academic buoyancy. We were also interested in extending knowledge of anxiety and its role in students' learning strategy use.…

Li, Haibin – Educational Psychology, 2017
Given Chinese students often perform well academically despite the challenges of their competitive academic environments, it is important to explore what enables the academic resilience of these students.

Martin, Andrew J.; Yu, Kai; Ginns, Paul; Papworth, Brad – Educational Psychology, 2017
We investigated academic buoyancy (a response to challenge) and adaptability (a response to change) among a sample of 12-16-year-olds in China (N = 3617) compared with same-aged youth from North America (N = 989) and the United Kingdom (UK; N = 1182). We found that Chinese students reported higher mean levels of buoyancy and adaptability. We also…
