Educational psychology is a broad field characterized by the study of individuals in educational settings and how they develop and learn. It incorporates information from such sub-disciplines such as developmental psychology, human development across the life span, curriculum and instruction, motivation, and measurement and assessment. It has evolved to become a field that increasingly focuses on individual differences without any regard to age thereby leading to interests in topics such as (early) intervention, long distance learning, educational technology, adult education, and theories of human development among others. Neil Salkind has mined the rich and extensive backlist of SAGE education and psychology journals to pull together a collection of almost a 100 articles to be the definitive research resource on education psychology.

factors. These changes reveal an apparent suppression effect, mostly because of educational attainment. This effect, however, was weak in magnitude. The other role of early attachment (differentiating career focused and family focused) fits better the supplemental pathway – the coefficient did not differ substantially across models, and no current/ adult factor was related to attachment and to the difference between the career- and family-focused profiles.

Standard scores range from 41 to 157, with values above 100 indicating that the raw score was above the mean score of the standardization sample. Internal consistencies for 4-year-olds are .92 and .91 for the two scales, respectively. Their correlation with each other was .51 in the standardization sample and .57 in our sample. Cronbach alphas
