About Thea Klapp

I am employed as a doctoral student in education, at the Department of Education and Special Education. I work within the research project Student self-concept and school achievement: bidirectional relations and effects of social comparisons and grading (SENSE).

I am interested in students’ self-perceived academic abilities, motivation and well-being. Within my doctoral project, I am mainly interested in how social comparisons with school peers affect students’ self-perception of their academic abilities.
