Lorah, Julie Ann – AERA Online Paper Repository, 2018
The Bayesian information criterion (BIC) can be useful for model selection within multilevel modeling studies. However, the formula for BIC requires a value for N, which is unclear in multilevel models, since N is observed in at least two levels. The present study uses simulated data to evaluate the rate of false positives and power when using a…

Chen, Guanhua; Shen, Ji; Jiang, Shiyan; Barth-Cohen, Lauren; Eltoukhy, Moataz – AERA Online Paper Repository, 2018
In the core of computational thinking (CT) practices is problem-solving. However, there is little research on connecting CT with problem solving processes. We developed a computer-based assessment on CT that can log students' problem-solving processes and administered it to a group of fifth graders as a pre- and post- measure of a robotics…

Angeli, Charoula M.; Makridou, Eria – AERA Online Paper Repository, 2018
The paper examines how computational thinking can be taught to young children with the use of educational robotics using the kit LEGO WeDo. Computational thinking was measured in terms of four sub-skills, namely, sequencing, correspondence between actions and instructions, debugging, and flow of control. Students were assigned to an experimental…

Aesaert, Koen; Siddiq, Fazilat; Tondeur, Jo – AERA Online Paper Repository, 2018
Teacher training institutions use different strategies to develop future teachers' technology competences. However, it remains unclear which of these strategies are related to pre-service teachers' technology competences. Consequently, the main aim of this study is to identify which strategies of the SQD-model are related to pre-service teachers'…

Rands, Melissa L.; Gansemer-Topf, Ann M. – AERA Online Paper Repository, 2018
Background: Studio-based courses - the primary approach in design education--have been viewed as effective environments for learning. However, few studies have utilized an ecological lens to explore how the studio environment creates opportunities for social interaction through immersive studies of studio learning. Purpose: We engaged in an…
