This research aims to address theoretical and methodological aspects of the Questionnaire of Educational and Learning Capital (QELC), in a Greek sample of students (10- to 14-year-olds) in 16 state Greek schools. The QELC was administered in 740 students, in classrooms, assessing the students’ educational and learning forms of capital, the educational one (5 subscales) and the learning capital (5 subscales). The theoretical structure of 10 distinct subscales along with two higher-order factors were supported to a satisfactory extent via Confirmatory Factor Analysis. Statistically significant differences were observed for almost all educational and learning capital scales in terms of the two age bands, gender and place of residence. For the educational economic scale significant interaction emerged in terms of gender x place of residence. The results are discussed in relation to the Greek cultural setting and the differentiation of educational and learning capitals.
