Based on the assumptions of the control-value theory of Pekrun (Educational Psychology Review 18:315–341, 2006) and the expectancy-value model of Eccles (Achievement and achievement motivation, W. H. Freeman, San Francisco, pp. 87–134, 1983) the present study examines the relationships between academic self-concept, learning enjoyment, concentration and academic achievement of 178 fourth graders by quantitative questionnaires. The aim is to examine both direct and indirect relationships between the three constructs and academic achievement in structural equation models. Results show for all models direct associations between self-concept and academic achievement, self-concept and learning enjoyment, self-concept and concentration as well as between learning enjoyment and concentration. Conversely, no direct relationships between concentration and academic achievement as well as between learning enjoyment and academic achievement are found. Further, learning enjoyment is a mediator between self-concept and concentration.
