Young, Kaisa E.; Young, Chadwick H. – Physics Teacher, 2019
Two of the most fundamental skills that students acquire in introductory undergraduate physics laboratory courses are how to accurately plot data and interpret the physical meaning of linear graphs. We redesigned our graphing skills lab with an open-ended approach designed to promote inquiry in graphical analysis and to address specific areas of…

St-Louis, Marie-Ève; Hughes, Robert W.; Saint-Aubin, Jean; Tremblay, Sébastien – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2019
In a single large-scale study, we demonstrate that verbal sequence learning as studied using the classic Hebb repetition effect (Hebb, 1961)--the improvement in the serial recall of a repeating sequence compared to nonrepeated sequences--is resilient to both wide and irregular spacing between sequence repetitions. Learning of a repeated sequence…

Dewhurst, Stephen A.; Anderson, Rachel J.; Grace, Lydia; Howe, David – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2019
Three experiments investigated the relationship between future thinking and false memories. In Experiment 1, participants remembered familiar events (e.g., a holiday) from their past, imagined planning the same events in the future, or took part in a control condition in which they visualized typical events. They then rated a series of…

Denicoló, Glenda – Physics Teacher, 2019
Learning assessment at two-year colleges is growing, but not much has been published about it yet. In general, our smaller classrooms, diverse student population, high proportion of adjunct faculty, and academic freedom in teaching methods and tools set the stage for a different approach to assessment than at four-year institutions. This is the…

Juhasz, Barbara J.; Yap, Melvin J.; Raoul, Akila; Kaye, Micaela – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2019
Word frequency is an important predictor of lexical-decision task performance. The current study further examined the role of this variable by exploring the influence of frequency trajectory. Frequency trajectory is measured by how often a word occurs in childhood relative to adulthood. Past research on the role of this variable in word…

Undorf, Monika; Zimdahl, Malte F. – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2019
Words printed in a larger 48-point font are judged to be more memorable than words printed in a smaller 18-point font, although font size does not affect actual memory. To clarify the basis of this font size effect on metamemory and memory, 4 experiments investigated how presenting words in 48 (Experiment 1) or 4 (Experiments 2 to 4) font sizes…

Smith-Peavler, Emily; Gardner, Grant E.; Otter, Ryan – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2019
Visual representations of physical and natural phenomena are important components of the teaching and learning of biology. In current undergraduate biology classrooms, visual representations are most often provided to students on PowerPoint slides. This study focuses on the use of, and perceptions about, PowerPoint in undergraduate introductory…

Farah, Kimberly S.; Montepare, Joann M. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2019
Our population is aging, calling for communities to be more age friendly and younger individuals to be more aware of aging issues that will impact their personal and professional lives. However, colleges provide few opportunities for students to prepare themselves for a more age-diverse world. Drawing on a new general education core curriculum…

Brigati, Jennifer; England, Benjamin J.; Schussler, Elisabeth – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2019
In response to STEM education reform efforts, many instructors have incorporated active learning into their courses. However, the relationship between instructor justification to students about the use of active learning and student perception of why instructors use active learning is largely unknown. To investigate instructor active learning…

Lerach, David G.; Yestness, Nissa R. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2019
An in-class case study is presented for use in a liberal arts core extreme weather course, designed to foster science literacy, appreciation, and critical thinking skills in nonscience majors. Students are ultimately shown the critical importance of the physical sciences in their daily lives and encouraged to consider STEM (science, technology,…

McDonald, Kelly K.; Martin, Allison R.; Watters, Cody P.; Landerholm, Thomas E. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2019
Many studies illustrate the positive influences of undergraduate research experiences on student learning, attitudes, and retention in the sciences. At our institution, over 90% of the biology majors surveyed reported a desire to participate in undergraduate research, but only 3% per year have the opportunity to work in a traditional…

Huffmyer, Ariana S.; Lemus, Judith D. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2019
Student experience and achievement in undergraduate science courses is important for degree retention and generating interest in careers in STEM. Graduate student teaching assistants (GTAs) provide a majority of instruction in STEM laboratory courses at universities and play a critical role in the educational experience of students. Many GTAs…

Javadi, Javad; Mohammadi, Mohammad – International Journal of Instruction, 2019
This contribution was an attempt to study the impact of critical discourse-based instruction on Iranian English major language learners' in-depth reading. To this target, Fairclough's three-dimensional model of critical discourse analysis [CDA], with an emphasis on the 10-question model was used. To this end, all undergraduate foreign language…

Chien, Chin-Wen – Innovation in Language Learning and Teaching, 2019
This study explored 42 English as a foreign language (EFL) undergraduates' self-regulated learning with and without technology in a university in northwest Taiwan. Based on the conceptual framework on Zimmerman's (Zimmerman, B. J. 2000. "Attaining Self-regulation: A Social Cognitive Perspective." In "Handbook of Self-Regulation:…

Hulse, Bethan; Owens, Allan – Innovation in Language Learning and Teaching, 2019
This paper reflects on issues arising from a research-informed learning and teaching project intended to enable student teachers of Modern Languages to experiment with the use of unscripted 'process drama' in their classroom practice. The idea that process drama could become part of the language teacher's repertoire has been in circulation for…
