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…

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…

Hugerat, Muhamad – Learning Environments Research, 2016
This study involved 458 ninth-grade students from two different Arab middle schools in Israel. Half of the students learned science using project-based learning strategies and the other half learned using traditional methods (non-project-based). The classes were heterogeneous regarding their achievements in the sciences. The adapted questionnaire…

Cohn, Stephen T.; Fraser, Barry J. – Learning Environments Research, 2016
In order to investigate the effectiveness of using Student Response Systems (SRS) among grade 7 and 8 science students in New York, the How Do You Feel About This Class? (HDYFATC) questionnaire was administered to 1097 students (532 students did use SRS and 565 students who did not use SRS). Data analyses attested to the sound factorial validity…

Hillman, Susan J.; Zeeman, Stephan I.; Tilburg, Charles E.; List, Henrietta E. – Learning Environments Research, 2016
The number of students in the United States choosing science, technology, engineering or mathematics careers is declining at a time when demand for these occupations is rapidly increasing. Numerous efforts have been undertaken to reverse this trend, yet results are uncertain. One's attitude is key to many choices one makes, and this includes, for…

Saunders-Stewart, K. S.; Gyles, P. D. T.; Shore, B. M.; Bracewell, R. J. – Learning Environments Research, 2015
Student outcomes of inquiry-based teaching and learning were explored through student-report. Participants were six teachers and their 181 students in grades 9 through 12. Classes were categorized by level of inquiry (least, middle, and most). A student-administered questionnaire assessed the extent to which the three groups experienced 23…

Shore, Rebecca; Ray, Jenna; Gooklasian, Paula – Learning Environments Research, 2015
We investigated whether three student-centred strategies influenced retention of science vocabulary words among 7th grade students. Two of the strategies (drawing pictures and talking about the definition of the terms) were developed to involve the students in more constructive and interactive exercises when compared to the technique that was in…

Collimore, Lisa-Marie; Paré, Dwayne E.; Joordens, Steve – Learning Environments Research, 2015
Middle- and high-school students' attitudes towards online peer-assessment were described and examined in this study. One hundred and eighty-four (184) students answered a 16-item questionnaire about their experiences with an online peer-assessment tool called peerScholar. Overall, students in Canada converged with those in other countries with…

Davis, Heather A.; Chang, Mei-Lin; Andrzejewski, Carey E.; Poirier, Ryan R. – Learning Environments Research, 2014
The purpose of this study was to examine changes in students' relational engagement across the transition to high school in three schools reformed to improve the quality of student-teacher relationships. In order to analyze this data we employed latent growth curve (LGC) modeling techniques (n = 637). We ran three LGC models on three…

Smith, Thomas J.; McKenna, Cornelius M.; Hines, Ellen – Learning Environments Research, 2014
This study examined a large, nationally-representative sample of eighth-grade students in the US to assess how the frequency of group learning activity in mathematics classrooms was associated with mathematics achievement and three measures of attitudes toward mathematics. Results showed that moderate amounts of group work in class had positive…

Gilbert, Melissa C.; Musu-Gillette, Lauren E.; Woolley, Michael E.; Karabenick, Stuart A.; Strutchens, Marilyn E.; Martin, W. Gary – Learning Environments Research, 2014
This study examined the relationship of 979 middle school students' perceptions of their mathematics classroom environment to their motivation and achievement. Structural equation modeling indicated that motivational variables (utility, personal achievement goals, efficacy) mediated the influence of perceived teacher expectations, teacher…

McEneaney, Elizabeth H.; López, Francesca; Nieswandt, Martina – Learning Environments Research, 2014
Science educators have suggested that, for minority and low-income students, gaps between home and school science cultures necessitate "border crossing" for successful learning in science. Our analysis used National Assessment of Educational Progress 2000 and 2005 data to assess the impact of U.S. state-level policy regarding…
