L’identité de genre, qui renvoie à l’identification aux rôles de genre (féminins vs masculins) et à la valeur qu’on leur accorde (Egan & Perry, 2001), est un facteur fondamental, en pleine évolution durant l’adolescence. En plus d’être une période charnière de l’adolescence, la scolarité au collège représente une période propice pour étudier le dév...

Virtual learning environments often use virtual characters to facilitate and improve the learning process. These characters, known as pedagogical agents, can take on different roles, such as tutors or companions. Research has highlighted the importance of various characteristics of virtual agents, including their voice or non-verbal behaviors. Litt...
Article
In most Western countries, girls outperform boys in academic engagement, scholastic achievement, and school completion. In the current study, researchers assessed the developmental trajectories of European French and North African French boys’ (N = 549; Mage = 11.9 years) perceptions of girls’ and boys’ ability to succeed in school. Boys reported t...

There is growing evidence in the literature of positive relationships between socio-emotional competencies and school performance. Several hypotheses have been used to explain how these variables may be related to school performance. In this paper, we explored the role of various school adjustment variables in the relationship between interpersonal...

We performed a meta-analysis of 20 recent studies testing for the effects of the Jigsaw classroom on learning. An overall positive and large effect size was obtained but with a notably high heterogeneity across studies. Asymmetry tests and moderation analyses suggest the Jigsaw effect might have been overestimated, particularly amongst studies cond...

Introduction The number of older people diagnosed with amnestic mild cognitive impairment (aMCI), the prodromal state of Alzheimer's disease (AD), is increasing worldwide. However, some patients with aMCI never convert to the AD type of dementia, with some remaining stable and others reverting to normal. This overdiagnosis bias has been largely ove...
Conference Paper
International travel can expose travelers to a variety of health risks, including mosquito-borne diseases. Assessing travelers' awareness of these risks through explicit measures (self-reports) remains insufficient to predict attitudes toward self-protection. Implicit measures such as the Implicit Association Test (IAT) have proved successful to ca...
Article
Full-text available
While recent studies have emphasized the role of metacognitive judgments in social interactions, whether social context might reciprocally impact individuals’ metacognition remains an open question. It has been proposed that such might be the case in situations involving stereotype threat. Here, we provide the first empirical test of this hypothesi...

Research has suggested mixed results regarding the relations between dimensions of ethnic-racial identity (ERI) and academic outcomes. Furthermore, little scholarship has explored the mechanisms that underlie these relations. In the current study, we investigated the longitudinal relations of 2 dimensions of ERI (embedded achievement, and ethnic af...
Article
Introduction Les situations d’équilibration difficiles, particulièrement les doubles tâches, s’avèrent complexes chez les sujets âgés. Cette difficulté peut être accentuée du fait de stéréotypes négatifs qui les conduiraient à produire des performances en dessous de leurs capacités réelles. Cette étude teste pour la première fois les effets de mena...

To determine travelers' actual and subjective knowledge about risk for Ebola virus disease, we surveyed travelers from France. Actual knowledge did not prevent irrational perceptions or promote safe behavior. Rather, readiness to adopt protective behavior depended on subjective knowledge and overconfidence in ability to self-protect.
Data
Additional methods and results for study of travelers’ actual and subjective knowledge about risk for Ebola virus disease.

Full-text available
Objectives: There is today ample evidence that negative aging stereotypes impair healthy older adults' performance on cognitive tasks. Here, we tested whether these stereotypes also decrease performance during the screening for predementia on short cognitive tests widely used in primary care. Method: An experiment was conducted on 80 healthy old...
Article
There is ample evidence that Stereotype Threat (ST) contributes to gender differences favoring males on standardized math tests; however, whether ST also contributes to gender differences favoring females in reading remains unanswered. This is surprising as the gender gap in reading is three times bigger than the gender gap in math (OECD, 2014). In...

Healthcare workers (HCW), in general, are considered at high risk during epidemics. Their training for Ebola provided by Médecins sans frontières (MSF) is presently based on imparting factual information, which does not necessarily translate into knowledge or appropriate practices. We aimed at understanding the importance of risk perception during...

Full-text available
For 20 years, the impact of stereotypical knowledge on math performance has been intensively investigated, especially within the framework of “stereotype threat” (Steele, 1997). Stereotype threat (ST) theory and research “do not focus on the internalization of inferiority images or their consequences. Instead, they focus on the immediate situationa...
Article
Because of a dramatic increase of older people worldwide, screening for prodromal state of Alzheimer disease (AD) is a major societal challenge. Many individuals diagnosed with prodromal AD, do not convert to AD, some remaining stable and others reversing back to normal. We argue that an important source of this overdiagnosis comes from negative ag...
Article
Autobiographical memories are a major feature of mental life in humans. However, research on the influence of autobiographical recall on actual behaviour is scarce. We predicted and found that general memories of failure and specific memories of success resulted in worse performance than general memories of success and specific memories of failure....
Article
Full-text available
There is now evidence that negative age-related stereotypes about memory reduce older adults' memory performance, and inflate age differences in this domain. Here, we examine whether stereotype threat may also influence the basic feeling that one is more or less able to remember. Using the Remember/Know paradigm, we demonstrated that stereotype thr...
Article
Full-text available
The threat of being negatively stereotyped in mathematics can impair the performance of women on difficult math tests, a phenomenon referred to as stereotype threat (ST). This phenomenon may help to explain why there are fewer women than men pursuing and succeeding in scientific careers. Although ST effects have emerged repeatedly in studies with c...
Article
Full-text available
In 2 field experiments, we relied on the very features of real testing situations—where both math and verbal tests are administered—to examine whether order of test administration can, by itself, create vs. alleviate stereotype threat (ST) effects on girls’ math performance. We predicted that taking the math test before the verbal test would be del...

Full-text available
Often taken for granted, the coexistence of benefits and costs of discounting and devaluing has never been tested. Yet, not only are there inconsistent findings about the relations between these processes and global self-esteem, but little is known about their relations to motivation and performance. Here we simultaneously examined how academic dis...
Article
Full-text available
The threat of being judged stereotypically (stereotype threat) may impair memory performance in older adults, thereby producing inflated age differences in memory tasks. However, the underlying mechanisms of stereotype threat in older adults or other stigmatized groups remain poorly understood. Here, we offer evidence that stereotype threat consume...
Article
The present research used correlational and experimental methods and two well-established social comparison paradigms to integrate and extend prior research from the achievement goal and social comparison literatures. In Study 1, a general disposition to engage in social comparison was positively correlated with each type of goal in the 2 × 2 model...

Full-text available
We address the question as to whether judgmental overconfidence, as assessed by probability miscalibration, is related to positive illusions about the self. We first demonstrate that judgmental overconfidence measured with interval production procedures can be considered a trait, due to correlations observed in miscalibration scores in two sets of...

Full-text available
Two studies tested the impact of autobiographical recall of general versus specific academic success or failure on actual task performance. As expected, it was found that general memories of failure and specific memories of success resulted in worse performance than general memories of success and specific memories of failure. In Study 1, this perf...

Consistent with social comparison theory (SCT), Blanton, Buunk, Gibbons, and Kuyper (1999) and Huguet, Dumas, Monteil, and Genestoux (2001) found that students tended to choose comparison targets who slightly outperformed them (i.e., upward comparison choices), and this had a beneficial effect on subsequent performance--a behavioral assimilation ef...

Full-text available
It has been speculated that the big-fish-little-pond effect (BFLPE; the negative impact of highly selective academic settings on academic self-concept) is a consequence of invidious social comparisons experienced in higher ability schools. However, the direct role of such comparisons for the BFLPE has not heretofore been documented. The present stu...

Immigrant adolescents and adolescents born of immigrant parents are at increased risk of substance use which has been linked to difficulties in acculturation processes. However very few studies have examined the role of the different acculturation strategies and none of them have controlled for relevant psychopathological and socio-familial factors...
Article
The threat of being negatively stereotyped in math impairs performance of highly qualified females on difficult math tests, a phenomenon known as “stereotype threat”—ST. Perhaps more alarmingly, recent studies based on unselective samples of elementary-, middle-, and high-school students show that ST also operates in girls from the general populati...

Full-text available
The present study examined whether students ' perceptions of two major facets of parental and teacher academic involvement (i.e., academic support and academic monitoring), contribute to the process of students ' achievement goals adoption. French junior high-school students completed two questionnaires assessing first their perceptions of parental...
Article
Blanton, Buunk, Gibbons, and Kuyper (1999) and Huguet, Dumas, Monteil, and Genestoux (2001) found that children nominated a social comparison target who slightly outperformed them in class with a beneficial effect on course grades - an assimilation effect, but with no effects on self-evaluation. However, big-fish-little-pond effect (BFLPE) research...

Full-text available
There is ample evidence today in the stereotype threat literature that women and girls are influenced by gender-stereotyped expectations on standardized. math tests. Despite its high relevance to education, this phenomenon has not received much attention in school settings. The present studies offer the 1 st evidence to date indicating that middle...
Article
Full-text available
Proponents of achievement goal theory typically posit social comparison to be associated with performance goals but not with mastery goals (C. Ames, 1992). Contrary to this postulate, there is some evidence that individuals who are experimentally induced to adopt mastery goals may also use social comparison (e.g., R. Butler, 1992). However, such la...
Article
The aim of the present study was to test whether both low- and high-SES students would prefer same-SES comparisons and to examine the level of performance these students might expect in their ingroup comparison target. After receiving either a failure or an average performance feedback on a bogus memory test, low- and high-SES students were asked t...

Two studies tested whether students' socioeconomic status (SES) and academic achievement level moderate their use of the SES stereotype (i.e., the belief that the low-SES individuals are intellectually inferior to their high-SES counterparts). In Study 1, low versus high achievers with a low versus a high SES were given social class information (de...
Article
Full-text available
A pilot study, the first step for work to be completed later, explored whether low socioeconomic status (SES) students restrict social comparison to their ingroup (the other low SES students) to self-protect. After receiving false performance feedback on a memory test, low and high SES students were asked to select another student and to predict hi...
