Representations and concepts of professional ethos among Swiss religious education teacher trainers

Rota, Andrea ; Bleisch Bouzar, Petra

In: British Journal of Religious Education

Over the past two decades, the organisation of religious education classes in Switzerland has undergone profound reforms. Amid the increasing secularisation and pluralisation of the religious landscape, many cantons have introduced a compulsory course that falls under the responsibility of the state and is aimed at teaching basic knowledge about a variety of religions. These reforms have...

The teaching and learning of diffusion and osmosis : what can we learn from analysis of classroom practices? A case study

Roy, Patrick ; Hasni, Abdelkrim ; Dumais, Nancy

In: Eurasia journal of mathematics, science and technology education, 2016, vol. 12, no. 6, p. 1507-1531

The objective of this study is to describe the way in which two important biological phenomena, namely diffusion and osmosis, are addressed in the classroom. The study builds on extensive research conducted over the past twenty years showing that students’ appropriation of these two phenomena remains partial and incomplete. To understand some of the difficulties these students face in...

Moroni, Sandra ; Dumont, Hanna ; Trautwein, Ulrich ; Niggli, Alois ; Baeriswyl, Franz

In: Journal of Educational Research, 2015, vol. 108, no. 5, p. 417-431

Parental involvement research has greatly expanded over the past decade, but findings are mixed, reflecting in part the conceptual and methodological limitations of many studies. On the basis of longitudinal questionnaire data from 1,685 sixth-grade students, the authors studied parental help with homework because it is the most common and most controversial type of parental involvement....

Villiger, Caroline ; Wandeler, Christian ; Niggli, Alois

In: International Journal of Educational Research, 2014, vol. 64, p. 12-25

Immigrant students usually report high levels of academic interest and motivation compared to their native peers. Given the important role that parents play in fostering their children’s academic motivation, this article focuses on aspects of parental involvement and analyzes possible mediator effects on the students’ reading motivation and achievement using structural equation modeling. The...

Predicting Homework Effort : Support for a Domain-Specific, Multilevel Homework Model

Trautwein, Ulrich ; Lüdtke, Oliver ; Inge Schnyder ; Niggli, Alois

In: Journal of Educational Psychology, 2006, vol. 98, no. 2, p. 448 – 456

To date, homework research has been only loosely tied to theories of educational psychology and has relied mainly on time-on-task measures. The two studies (414 and 1,501 eighth graders) presented in this paper provide support for a domain-specific, multilevel model that includes an expanded effort measure, motivational predictors (expectancy and value components), learning environment variables,...

Different Forces, Same Consequence : Conscientiousness and Competence Beliefs are Independent Predictors of Academic Effort and Achievement

Trautwein, Ulrich ; Lüdtke, Oliver ; Roberts, Brent W. ; Schnyder, Inge ; Niggli, Alois

In: Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, 2009, vol. 97, no. 6, p. 1115 – 1128

Conscientiousness and domain-specific competence beliefs are known to be highly important predictors of academic effort and achievement. Given their basis in distinct research traditions, however, these constructs have rarely been examined simultaneously. Three studies with 571, 415, and 1,535 students, respectively, found a moderate association between conscientiousness and competence beliefs,...

Between-Teacher Differences in Homework Assignments and the Development of Students’ Homework Effort, Homework Emotions, and Achievement

Trautwein, Ulrich ; Niggli, Alois ; Schnyder, Inge ; Lüdtke, Oliver

In: Journal of Educational Psychology, 2009, vol. 101, no. 1, p. 176-189

The study examines whether teachers’ homework objectives, implementation practices, and attitudes towards parental involvement are associated with the development of students’ homework effort, homework emotions, and achievement during grade 8. A total of 63 teachers (40 male, 23 female; mean teaching experience M = 17.5 years) of French as a second language and their 1,299 grade 8 students...

Chameleon Effects in Homework Research : The Homework-Achievement Association Depends on the Measures Used and the Level of Analysis Chosen

Trautwein, Ulrich ; Schnyder, Inge ; Niggli, Alois ; Neumann, Marko ; Lüdtke, Oliver Max Planck Institute for Human Development, Berlin

In: Contemporary Educational Psychology, 2009, vol. 34, no. 1, p. 77-88

Using a data set specifically tailored to homework research, with a sample of 1,275 students from 70 classes in Switzerland, the association between homework and achievement in French as a second language was tested at three levels (class level, between-student level, within-student level). The strength and direction of the homework-achievement association depended on the homework indicator...

Does Family Make a Difference? : Mid-Term Effects of a School/Home-Based Intervention Program to Enhance Reading Motivation

Villiger, Caroline ; Niggli, Alois ; Wandeler, Christian ; Kutzelmann, Sabine

In: Learning & Instruction, 2012, vol. 22, no. 2, p. 79-91

This study examined the effects of a school/home-based intervention program designed to enhance the reading motivation of Swiss fourth graders (N = 713). In order to identify the specific contribution of the home environment, the program was implemented in one group without (S group = school-based, N = 244) and in one group with (SH group = school/home-based, N = 225) parental participation. The...
