Becker, M. (2024). Socio-emotional characteristics and education. Zeitschrift für Erziehungswissenschaft.

The article “Socio-emotional characteristics and education” by Professor Michael Becker reviews current research on socio-emotional characteristics (sometimes also labeled noncognitive skills) and their manifold relations to education and development across the lifespan.

The contribution addresses several aspects: It presents central topics and problems alongside an overview of the currently used taxonomies and terminologies. Furthermore, theoretical models of the mechanisms of the relation between socio-emotional characteristics and education are presented. The author informs about current research on the correlative and causal relations between socio-emotional characteristics and education, concluding on a discussion of central problems and further research desiderata.
