Rahmanian, Sadaf; Kuperman, Victor – Scientific Studies of Reading, 2019
Spelling errors are typically thought of as an "effect" of a word's weak orthographic representation in an individual mind.

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…

Badenhorst, Cecile M. – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019

Bokosmaty, Sahar; Ehrich, John; Eady, Michelle J.; Bell, Kenton – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2019
Prior research on plagiarism has indicated that men may have a greater predisposition toward academic dishonesty than women. However, little research has been conducted using psychometrically tested instruments to validate such claims. To address this gap, a survey was conducted with 377 undergraduate students at a Canadian university on their…
