Viciana, Jesús; Mayorga-Vega, Daniel; Parra-Saldías, Maribel – European Physical Education Review, 2019
All Latin-American countries are affected by the lack of physical activity and its consequences on youth. Chile's population has shown troublingly low levels of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity. This is the first study using objectively measured physical activity levels in Chilean adolescents. The objectives were to compare the compliance…

Alfrey, Laura; Gard, Michael – European Physical Education Review, 2019
This paper explores the ways in which figurational sociology can offer a useful lens through which to understand the ongoing use of fitness testing as a means to physically educate young people. We contribute to a theoretical discussion around how physical education teachers have come to think about and enact fitness testing so pervasively.…

Sato, Takahiro; Walton-Fisette, Jennifer; Kim, Insook – European Physical Education Review, 2019
Public schools in the United States (US) have become more linguistically diverse. With the rise of English as a global language, English Language Learners (ELLs) experience "transnationalism", which requires them to gain a critical and reflective knowledge of diverse cultures and the valuing of a new language and culture. Many teachers…

Timken, Gay; McNamee, Jeff; Coste, Sarah – European Physical Education Review, 2019
School-based physical education (PE) is the most efficient and cost-effective means of increasing girls' physical activity. Therefore, this project used a health club (HC) approach to alter a high school PE experience for 17 grade nine girls (M age = 14.6 ± 0.49). As part of a larger mixed-methods study, this qualitative element gauged adolescent…

Duncan, Mary Katherine; Johnson, Jennifer Adrienne – Teaching of Psychology, 2019
Gardner, Csikszentmihalyi, and Damon defined good work as excellent, ethical, and engaged. In two studies, we explored factors that motivate and challenge undergraduate psychology majors' pursuit of academic good work (N = 100; M[subscript age] = 21.7; mostly female, Caucasian, and seniors). We found that excellent academic work was motivated by…

Thompson, W. Burt – Teaching of Psychology, 2019
When a psychologist announces a new research finding, it is often based on a rejected null hypothesis. However, if that hypothesis is true, the claim is a false alarm. Many students mistakenly believe that the probability of committing a false alarm equals alpha, the criterion for statistical significance, which is typically set at 5%. Instructors…

Kim, ChanMin; Yuan, Jiangmei; Kim, Dongho; Doshi, Prashant; Thai, Chi N.; Hill, Roger B.; Melias, Ernst – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2019
We developed RoboSTEM, a portal for open educational resources for the use of robotics in teaching and learning, to help teachers learn how to design and implement lessons using robotics. In this article, the design and functionality of RoboSTEM and the theoretical foundations behind its design are described. Two usability testing studies are also…
