The present study focuses on how teachers support their students with this process, and if this support contributes to…

This study examined relations between child-reported teacher emotional support, teaching practices, and children's task-persistent learning behaviour. The study was carried out in Estonia, where a students' first teacher advances with his/her students and teaches all primary subjects in the first 3 years of schooling. In total, 660 sixth-grade…

Józsa, Krisztián; Kis, Noémi; Barrett, Karen Caplovitz – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2019
Children's motivation to master challenging tasks is an important predictor of school success, and yet, such motivation declines during adolescence. It is therefore important to identify ways to intervene to reduce this decline. One malleable factor that is associated with motivation is parenting. The present study used structural equation…

Morinaj, Julia; Hascher, Tina – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2019
School alienation is identified as a severe educational problem that hampers students' academic journey. However, little is known about the concept's interplay with other socio-emotional phenomena such as well-being. This longitudinal study explored the cross-lagged associations among alienation from learning, teachers, and classmates, and…

Putwain, David W. – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2019
According to the self-referent executive processing (S-REF) model, test anxiety develops from interactions between three systems: executive self-regulation processes, self-beliefs, and maladaptive situational interactions. Studies have tended to examine one system at a time, often in conjunction with how test anxiety relates to achievement…

Jungert, Tomas; Hubbard, Kyle; Dedic, Helena; Rosenfield, Steven – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2019
For years, a popular explanation for women choosing to abandon studies in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) has been their lack of aptitude. This study challenged that notion by integrating theories of cognitive style, academic emotion, self-efficacy, and motivation to explain students' academic achievement and perseverance…

Fischer, Jean-Paul; Sander, Emmanuel; Sensevy, Gérard; Vilette, Bruno; Richard, Jean-François – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2019
Ensuring students correctly understand the notion of equality is a fundamental problem in teaching mathematics. Is it possible to teach arithmetic in such a way that students do not misinterpret the equal sign "=" as indicating the result of an arithmetic operation and, consequently, viewing the arithmetic operation symbols (+, -, or x)…

Winberg, T. Mikael; Hofverberg, Anders; Lindfors, Maria – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2019
Examining how students' epistemic beliefs (EB) influence their cognition is central to EB research. Recently, the relation between students' EB and their motivation has gained attention. In the present study, we investigate the development of the relationship between students' EB and their achievement goals (AG) over grades 5-11. Previous studies…

Kyndt, Eva; Donche, Vincent; Coertjens, Liesje; van Daal, Tine; Gijbels, David; Van Petegem, Peter – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2019
The transition from secondary to higher education is a challenging process, in which the development of students' motivation plays a pivotal role. The current study examines whether self-efficacy--and how it develops--is able to explain the growth in motivation. The current longitudinal study included five waves, across a period of 25 months (i.e.…

Aleksic, Gabrijela; Merrell, Christine; Ferring, Dieter; Tymms, Peter; Klemenovic, Jasmina – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2019
Young children's socio-emotional skills are important for understanding their own and others' behaviors and interactions. No study in Serbia has investigated this before. In this study, we explored the links between early socio-emotional skills, behavior, and mathematics and literacy performance of preschool children in Serbia over time. Children…

Wang, Jing; King, Ronnel B.; Rao, Nirmala – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2019
The role of mastery and performance goals in self-regulated learning (SRL) has received much attention. However, in collectivist and Confucian-heritage contexts, social-academic goals may also play an important, yet unexamined role in SRL. This study examined the association between social-academic goals and SRL. We tested a hierarchical model…

Bieg, Sonja; Grassinger, Robert; Dresel, Markus – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2019
Characteristics of teaching are associated with the emotions students experience in the classroom; however, empirical evidence regarding longitudinal effects is scarce. The present study investigated changes in positive and negative achievement emotions (enjoyment, boredom, and anger) vis-à-vis different teacher humor types (course-related,…

Baadte, Christiane – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2019
It was investigated whether teachers' feedback skills to support students' self-regulated learning (SRL) can be improved by short-term video-based interventions and/or direct instructions that were adapted to a SRL framework. Forty pre-service and 40 in-service teachers were assigned to a video + instruction or an instruction-only condition.…

Oostdam, R. J.; Koerhuis, M. J. C.; Fukkink, R. G. – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2019
Much research has been done into the relationship between students' motivation to learn and their basic psychological needs as defined by the self-determination theory (autonomy, competence, relatedness). However, few studies have explored how these psychological needs relate to different types of maladaptive behavior in the classroom. To prevent…
