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…

Schenke, Katerina; Ruzek, Erik; Lam, Arena C.; Karabenick, Stuart A.; Eccles, Jacquelynne S. – Learning Environments Research, 2017
Student perceptions are a pivotal point of measurement for understanding why classroom learning environments are effective. Yet there is some evidence that student perceptions cannot be reliably aggregated at the classroom level and, instead, could represent idiosyncratic experiences of students. The present study examines whether heterogeneity in…

Brez, Caitlin; Sheets, Virgil – Learning Environments Research, 2017
Despite research demonstrating the importance of recess and free play for children, schools have been reducing free play time for more academic pursuits (Ramstetter et al. in "J Sch Health" 80:517-526, 2010; Waite-Stupiansky and Findlay in "Educ Forum" 66:16-25, 2001). Recently, there has been renewed interest in understanding…

Deemer, Eric D.; Dotterer, Aryn M.; Morel, Samantha A.; Bastnagel, Abigail E. – Learning Environments Research, 2017
Rooted in achievement goal theory, the buffering hypothesis posits that contextual factors serve to moderate the deleterious effects of personal achievement goals on relevant outcomes. The present study sought to test this hypothesis by examining the interactive effects of classroom affiliation perceptions and personal achievement goals for…

Urban learning environments pose distinct instructional challenges for teachers and administrators, and can lead to lower achievement compared to suburban or rural schools. Today's educational climate increasingly emphasises a need for positive academic outcomes, often measured by standardised tests, on which student educational opportunities,…

Deed, Craig; Lesko, Thomas – Learning Environments Research, 2015
Modern open school architecture abstractly expresses ideas about choice, flexibility and autonomy. While open spaces express and authorise different teaching practice, these versions of school and classrooms present challenges to teaching routines and practice. This paper examines how teachers adapt as they move into new school buildings designed…

Alt, Dorit – Learning Environments Research, 2015
Self-efficacy for learning, which refers to students' beliefs in their capabilities to regulate their own learning, could determine students' motivation and academic achievement and, therefore, is significant in the learning process. This study examined how educational efforts based on constructivist theory were associated with the…

Oluwatayo, Adedapo Adewunmi; Aderonmu, Peter A.; Aduwo, Egidario B. – Learning Environments Research, 2015
Scholars have agreed that the way in which students perceive their learning environments influences their academic performance. Empirical studies that focus on architecture students, however, have been very scarce. This is the gap that an attempt is filled in this study. A questionnaire survey of 273 students in a school of architecture in Nigeria…

Lust, Griet; Vandewaetere, Mieke; Elen, Jan; Clarebout, Geraldine – Learning Environments Research, 2014
Given the rising popularity of content management systems (CMSs) in higher education, we investigated how students use the available CMS tools, as well as whether the moment of using a CMS tool affects students' learning. This temporal dimension has been neglected in current research on CMS use. More insight into students' tool-use is…

Bear, George G.; Yang, Chunyan; Pell, Megan; Gaskins, Clare – Learning Environments Research, 2014
Based on theory and research on learning environments, the Delaware School Climate Survey-Teacher/Staff (DSCS-T/S) was developed to provide schools with a brief, psychometrically sound measure of teachers' perceptions of school climate. Multigroup confirmatory factor analyses, conducted on a sample of 5,781 teachers, support staff,…

This study validated the Chinese version of the Questionnaire on Teacher Interaction (QTI) in the Hong Kong context as well as examined the relationship between students' perceptions of interpersonal teacher behaviour and their cognitive, affective and moral learning outcomes. Data were collected with the QTI and four other measures of student…
