Wollast, Robin; Boudrenghien, Gentiane; Van der Linden, Nicolas; Galand, Benoît; Roland, Nathalie; Devos, Christelle; De Clercq, Mikaël; Klein, Olivier; Azzi, Assaad; Frenay, Mariane – International Journal of Higher Education, 2018
The issue of considerable dropout rate in doctoral programs is well documented across a large number of countries. However, few studies address the factors associated with doctoral completion among Non-U.S. countries, multiple universities and fields of research. Nor do they investigate the interactions between these factors. The present paper…

Shahbari, Juhaina; Daher, Wajeeh – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
This study came to characterize the features of mathematical models built by mathematics pre-service teachers for a model eliciting activity. Fourteen groups participated in building the models. We used a combination of deductive and inductive content analysis to characterize the pre-service teachers' elicited models, taking into account features…

Baris Pekmezci, Fulya; Gulleroglu, H. Deniz – Eurasian Journal of Educational Research, 2019
Purpose: This study aims to investigate the orthogonality assumption, which restricts the use of Bifactor item response theory under different conditions. Method: Data of the study have been obtained in accordance with the Bifactor model. It has been produced in accordance with two different models (Model 1 and Model 2) in a simulated way.…

Mahzoon, Mohammad Javad; Maher, Mary Lou; Eltayeby, Omar; Dou, Wenwen; Grace, Kazjon – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2018
Data models built for analyzing student data often obfuscate temporal relationships for reasons of simplicity, or to aid in generalization. We present a model based on temporal relationships of heterogeneous data as the basis for building predictive models. We show how within- and between-semester temporal patterns can provide insight into the…

von Davier, Matthias – Educational Testing Service, 2011
This report shows that the deterministic-input noisy-AND (DINA) model is a special case of more general compensatory diagnostic models by means of a reparameterization of the skill space and the design (Q-) matrix of item by skills associations. This reparameterization produces a compensatory model that is equivalent to the (conjunctive) DINA…

Stonkus, Mark A.; Royal, Kenneth D. – Online Submission, 2015
The purpose of this study was to provide further validation a new measure of mental toughness in sport. The Inventory of Mental Toughness Factors in Sport (IMTF-S) was originally developed and validated using principal component analysis. For the present study, the psychometric properties of the IMTF-S were again evaluated, but by way of the Rasch…

Kaplan, David; Chen, Jianshen – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2013
The purpose of this study is to explore Bayesian model averaging in the propensity score context. Previous research on Bayesian propensity score analysis does not take into account model uncertainty. In this regard, an internally consistent Bayesian framework for model building and estimation must also account for model uncertainty. The…

Garcia Laborda, Jesus; Magal Royo, Teresa; Rodriguez Lazaro, Nieves; Marugan, L. Fuentes – Online Submission, 2015
Modern trends in educational technology have evidenced the increasing importance of mobile devices in language learning. The need of sophisticated devices that can facilitate lifelong learning wherever the students might be. Facilitating learning, however, implies that students have to be assessed through the same delivery models that are used in…

Berkant, Hasan Güner; Baysal, Seda – Universal Journal of Educational Research, 2017
The changes which occur during the learning process have been explained by many teaching-learning models and theories. One of these models is allosteric learning model (ALM) which was developed by André Giordan in 1989. This model was derived from a biological metaphor related to proteins. The interaction between individual and environment in a…

Virolainen, Maarit; Stenström, Marja-Leena – Online Submission, 2014
The study investigates how the Finnish model of providing initial vocational education and training (IVET) has succeeded in terms of enhancing educational progress and employability. A relatively high level of participation in IVET makes the Finnish model distinctive from those of three other Nordic countries: Denmark, Norway and Sweden. All four…

Wiechowski, Linda; Washburn, Terri L. – American Journal of Business Education, 2014
Student learning outcomes and course satisfaction scores are two key considerations when assessing the success of any degree program. This empirical study was based upon more than 3,000 end-of-semester course evaluations collected from 171 courses in the 2010-2011 academic year. The study, conducted at a Midwestern business college, considered the…
