Individual and Contextual Determinants on Students’ Learning and Performance

Educational Psychology

When applying psychology in education, the study of learning processes, from both individual and contextual perspectives, allows researchers to understand students’ cognitive development, motivation, creativity, affect, and self-regulation, as well as their role in learning and performance.

In this special issue on “Individual and Contextual Determinants on Students’ Learning and Performance” of Educational Psychology, we aim to publish new contributions of psychology to further our understanding of learning and academic performance.

The focus will be on empirical studies that employ innovative approaches to address issues that have potential to shape the field. The following and other individual and contextual determinants on students’ learning and performance may be considered:

  • Personality traits of intellect
  • Motivation of learning
  • Self-regulated learning
  • Problem-based learning
  • Development of learning potential
  • Emotions towards learning
  • Social influences/norms
  • Creativity
