Clinton, Virginia; Wilson, Nicholas – Learning Environments Research, 2019
The well-known benefits of collaborative learning have prompted the development of active learning classrooms that are designed to facilitate peer interaction. Given the expense of designing active learning classrooms, examining student perceptions of these learning spaces is critical. Furthermore, it is not well understood how the type of…

Hodges, Tracey S.; Wright, Katherine Landau; Roberts, Kathryn L.; Norman, Rebecca R.; Coleman, Julianne – Learning Environments Research, 2019
In this study, we examined students' access to text, defined as the number of texts freely available to children in their classrooms. From 60 elementary classrooms across five states, we catalogued the books in first, third and fifth grades in both high- and low-achieving schools (based on state-wide reading test scores) to create a database of…

Pereira, Nielsen; Tay, Juliana; Maeda, Yukiko; Gentry, Marcia – Learning Environments Research, 2019
The Classroom Practices Survey assesses educators' use of differentiated instruction with students achieving at average and high levels. The purposes of this study were to investigate if the Classroom Practices Survey (1) yields reliable and valid data from the groups for which it was originally designed and (2) can be used to evaluate teachers'…

Newland, Lisa Anne; Mourlam, Daniel; Strouse, Gabrielle; DeCino, Daniel; Hanson, Cylie – Learning Environments Research, 2019
This phenomenological study explored children's school life as it relates to their subjective well-being in the United States (N = 22). It was conducted as part of a multinational comparative study of children's well-being following a semi-structured qualitative interview protocol. Rural and urban children (aged 8-12 years) participated in an…

Thomas, Valérie; De Backer, Free; Peeters, Jeltsen; Lombaerts, Koen – Learning Environments Research, 2019
Both parental involvement and self-regulated learning are important predictors of students' study success. However, previous research on self-regulated learning has focused instead on the school environment and has not focused on the home situation. In particular, investigations into the role of parents in self-regulated learning when children…

Khalil, Nadine; Aldridge, Jill – Learning Environments Research, 2019
As part of major education reform efforts underway in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), teachers have been introducing cooperative teaching methods in their science classes. Given the limited research carried out in this context, we aimed to: first, provide evidence to support a modified and translated (Arabic/English) version of a well-known…

Ovbiagbonhia, A. R.; Kollöffel, Bas; den Brok, Perry – Learning Environments Research, 2019
Developing students' innovation competence is becoming increasingly important in higher education, yet few studies have actually investigated whether current learning environments are aimed at promoting this competence and whether students perceive that they have mastered this competence. This study aimed to map students' perceptions of the…

Aluri, Venkata L. N.; Fraser, Barry J. – Learning Environments Research, 2019
In this study, we measured students' perceptions of mathematics classroom learning environment and investigated their associations with students' achievement. The Mathematics-Related Constructivist-Oriented Classroom Learning Environment Survey (MCOLES) was developed with seven dimensions and 56 items, using theories surrounding classroom learning…

Pasha-Zaidi, Nausheen; Afari, Ernest; Sevi, Baris; Urganci, Betul; Durham, Justin – Learning Environments Research, 2019
The present study explored the relationship between grit, motivational beliefs and self-regulation among undergraduate students in the United States, the United Arab Emirates and Turkey. These factors place the responsibility of learning on the students, rather than the educational environment. As most studies continue to focus on Western,…

Wijsman, Lindy A.; Saab, Nadira; Schuitema, Jaap; van Driel, Jan H.; Westenberg, P. Michiel – Learning Environments Research, 2019
During the early stages of secondary education students' motivation and performance levels decline. This study employed a case study approach to evaluate a learning environment called GUTS; Differentiated Challenging of Talent in School. GUTS was specifically designed to raise performance and motivation through a combination of (a) talent lessons…

Pulay, Alana; Williamson, Amy – Learning Environments Research, 2019
Studies suggest that the learning environment can act as a third teacher in contributing towards student academic success. A variable within the physical learning environment that has received little attention in the literature is the interior lighting. Because of budget constraints and age, most American public school classrooms have fluorescent…

Thomas, Christopher L.; Pavlechko, Gary M.; Cassady, Jerrell C. – Learning Environments Research, 2019
Ball State University re-designed five classrooms--as part of an Interactive Learning Space (ILS) Initiative--to provide educators with learning spaces that could be used to implement and assess the effectiveness of student-centred instructional practices. The purpose of the current investigation was to explore how pedagogy implemented within ILSs…

Cipriano, Christina; Barnes, Tia Navelene; Kolev, Lyubo; Rivers, Susan; Brackett, Marc – Learning Environments Research, 2019
Teacher-student interactions contribute to the quality of the classroom environment. Although numerous measures of these interactions exist, few target the affective expression and reception of interactions directly. To fill this need, we detail the piloting and psychometric validation a self-report measure, the Emotion-Focused Interactions (EFI)…

Lin, Shuqiong; Salazar, Timothy R.; Wu, Shuang – Learning Environments Research, 2019
Utilising data from a research university (N = 7219), we examined the extent to which three factors, climate of diversity (COD), course learning experience (CLE) and research practice experience, predicted undergraduates' overall satisfaction. COD was the most influential predictor of student satisfaction after controlling for the other two. In…

Salmi, Hannu; Thuneberg, Helena – Learning Environments Research, 2019
The goal of this research was to explore cognitive, self-determined learning and autonomous motivational effects in the context of a mobile science exhibition (N = 256) in Finland. The pupils were sixth-graders with an average age of 12 years 6 months. Autonomy experience, as measured by the Relative Autonomy Index (RAI), had an effect on how the…
