Jeanne Ellis Ormrod holds a B.A. degree in psychology from Brown University and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in educational psychology from The Pennsylvania State University. For many years she was a faculty member at the University of Northern Colorado, where she taught courses in learning and cognition, educational psychology, measurement, and research methods; she is currently Professor Emerita of Psychological Sciences at UNC. Dr. Ormrod has published numerous research articles but is probably best known for this book and several other textbooks: Educational Psychology: Developing Learners (9th ed., 2017); Essentials of Educational Psychology (5th ed., 2018); Our Minds, Our Memories: Enhancing Thinking and Learning at All Ages (2011); Child Development and Education (with Teresa McDevitt; 6th ed., 2016); and Practical Research: Planning and Design (with Paul Leedy, 12th ed., 2019).

Eric M. Anderman holds a B.S. degree in Psychology and Spanish from Tufts University, an Ed.M. from Harvard University, and a Ph.D. in Educational Psychology from The University of Michigan. After completing his Masters degree, he worked as a high school and middle school teacher for several years, before returning to graduate school. He is currently Professor of Educational Psychology and Chair of the Department of Educational Studies at The Ohio State University. His research focuses on (a) academic motivation, (b) academic cheating, and (c) motivation and risky behavior during adolescence. He is currently the editor of the journal, Theory into Practice, and formerly was associate editor of the Journal of Educational Psychology. He co-authors two other text books also published by Pearson: Classroom Motivation (now in its second edition) with Lynley Anderman, and Adolescent Development for Educators, with Alison Ryan and Tim Urdan. He recently co-edited the third edition of the Handbook of Educational Psychology (published by Routledge) with Lyn Corno, and The International Guide to Student Achievement (published by Routledge) with John Hattie.

A graduate of North Shore Teachers College (Auckland, New Zealand) she taught for several years in primary and intermediate schools in Auckland. Currently, she is Professor of Educational Psychology at The Ohio State University. She has published and presented extensively on academic motivation, particularly in relation to the roles of instructional and social-relational characteristics of classrooms that support students’ motivation and engagement, including students’ sense of belonging, teacher-student and peer relationships.

Dr. Anderman is the former editor of the Journal of Experimental Education, and former associate editor of Theory into Practice. She has co-edited Psychology of Classroom Learning (published by Cengage) and Classroom Motivation (published by Pearson) with Eric Anderman.
