Deighton, Kevin; Hudson, Joanne; Manley, Andrew J.; Kaiseler, Mariana; Patterson, Laurie B.; Rutherford, Zoe H.; Swainson, Michelle – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
An increase in the number of students entering higher education has intensified the need for targeted strategies to support a wider range of student requirements. Current research suggests that emotional intelligence (EI) may be associated with academic success, progression and retention in university students but the use of EI screening as a…

The introduction of the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) reforms were hailed in 2014, by the then Government, as the most significant change to SEND policy for 30 years. Despite the changes introduced, the 2015 Code continued to place responsibility for the co-ordination of provision for children with special educational needs…

Fairbairn, Judith; Spiby, Richard – European Journal of Special Needs Education, 2019

This principle is widely recognised by educational and language testing associations in guidelines for the production and…

Gorard, Stephen – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2019
This paper compares the use of confidence intervals (CIs) and a sensitivity analysis called the number needed to disturb (NNTD), in the analysis of research findings expressed as 'effect' sizes. Using 1,000 simulations of randomised trials with up to 1,000 cases in each, the paper shows that both approaches are very similar in outcomes, and each…

Brennan, John; Cochrane, Allan – Oxford Review of Education, 2019
Universities are necessarily implicated in processes of globalisation and neoliberalisation. But this also finds an expression in the ways that they operate in the cities in which they are located. They are always located "in" place, but the question remains whether they can be understood to be of the places in which they find…

Poyntz, Stuart R.; Coles, Rebecca; Fitzsimmons-Frey, Heather; Bains, Alysha; Sefton-Green, Julian; Hoechsmann, Michael – Oxford Review of Education, 2019
The 'learning city' contains a range of non-formal learning economies. In recent years researchers have focused on, what has been termed, the non-formal arts learning sector, to document best practices, the emergence of new literacies and/or cultural practices, and to highlight interventions that support otherwise marginalised and underserved…

Barrs, Myra – English in Education, 2019
This article is a critique of current approaches to the teaching and assessment of writing in schools in the UK. Successive government initiatives, most particularly the latest (impoverished) version of the English curriculum, are seen as having led to a situation in which pupils are taught in a way that does not improve the quality of their…

The recruitment and retention 'crises' in US and UK teaching have major and negative implications for the future of education. This pilot study uses extended conversations with Asian and African teaching staff to examine the role of values in helping teachers sustain positive contributions to children's lives and world. In five elementary schools,…

Crook, Charles; Nixon, Elizabeth – British Educational Research Journal, 2019
This article offers a conceptual analysis of collusion, the often overlooked relative of plagiarism in debates on academic integrity. Considered as an inherently social phenomenon, we present the results of a systematic effort to understand the anatomy of collusion. The term's meanings and associated governance practices are compared for contexts…
