Demir, Meliksah; Burton, Shelby; Dunbar, Nora – Teaching of Psychology, 2019
Two robust predictors of student success, rapport, and autonomy support were assessed to determine which had a greater impact on course and student outcomes. Survey responses from undergraduate psychology students (n = 412) were collected. Together, rapport and autonomy support explained substantial variance in professor effectiveness…

Johnson, William F.; Stellmack, Mark A.; Barthel, Abigail L. – Teaching of Psychology, 2019
Electronic feedback given via word-processing software (e.g., track changes in Microsoft Word) allows for a simple way to provide feedback to students during the drafting process. Research has mostly focused on student attitudes toward electronic feedback, with little investigation of how feedback format might affect the quality of instructor…

Yang, Harrison H.; Feng, Lin; MacLeod, Jason – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2019
Cloud classrooms provide many advantages in higher education. However, little is known about the social influence of peer relationships on students' acceptance of cloud classrooms. This study utilized structural equation modeling to examine a model that integrates the Universal Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT) and Connected…

Douglas, Kate – Higher Education Research and Development, 2019
University educators have observed the concurrent problems of student attrition, higher than normal or desired failure rates and students struggling to complete assessable and non-assessable work, for instance, set readings. Recent public commentary has pointed to the widening participation agenda with its lowering of university entrance scores…

Gould, Kevin S.; Gilbert, Amanda; Pike, Adrian J.; Menzies, Ignatius J. – Journal of Biological Education, 2019
Microscopy skills are critical for many aspects of biology, yet they are notoriously difficult to teach, especially to large classes. We trialled the use of widescreen monitors with touch-screen capability connected to compound microscopes in an introductory-level plant biology lab. Working in teams, students used the screens to interpret,…

Baker, Sally; Bangeni, Bongi; Burke, Rachel; Hunma, Aditi – Higher Education Research and Development, 2019
While the importance of academic language and literacies in students' meaningful participation in higher education has been well-explored, studies have focused on writing rather than reading. There has been a significant silence in the literature around what constitutes reading in higher education, the sociocultural complexities of reader…

Yürekli Kaynardag, Aynur – Studies in Higher Education, 2019
Pedagogical competencies of instructors play a crucial role in improving the quality of the teaching and learning in higher education institutions. However, in many countries worldwide, pedagogical training is not a requirement for being an instructor at a university [Postareff, L., S. Lindblom-Ylänne, and A. Nevgi. 2007. "The Effect of…

Denovan, Andrew; Dagnall, Neil; Dhingra, Katie; Grogan, Sarah – Studies in Higher Education, 2019
University life can be stressful, and accurate measurement of perceived stress is important for research and practice. However, despite widespread use, disagreement persists regarding the latent structure of the Perceived Stress Scale (PSS), which poses serious consequences for how the measure should be administered. Furthermore, factorial…

Herber, Stefanie P.; Kalinowski, Michael – Education Economics, 2019
We estimate the percentage of eligible students who do not take up their federal need-based student financial aid entitlements in a microsimulation model for the German Socio-Economic Panel Study 2002--2013. We find that about 40% of the eligible low-income students do not take up their entitlements. Non-take-up is inversely and rather…

Kelchen, Robert – Teachers College Record, 2019
Background/Context: Public colleges and universities have sought to recruit and enroll more students from outside their home state in an effort to both enhance institutional prestige and generate additional revenue from the higher tuition rates than nonresident students generally pay. A body of research has shown that nonresident students tend to…

Plasman, Jay Stratte; Gottfried, Michael A.; Sublett, Cameron – Teachers College Record, 2019
Background: Previous studies have explored the relationship between career and technical education (CTE) on numerous secondary and college outcomes. However, a key oversight in the literature is the examination of the CTE coursetaking pipeline as it makes a direct connection between high school and college. Research Questions: We asked the…

Phillips, Sandra R.; Archer-Lean, Clare – Higher Education Research and Development, 2019
First Nations writing within English literary studies risks contemporary colonisation if encountered as a literary object for close reading without context or reflection on the role of the reader. This article will explore the processes involved in constructing an innovative reading practice amongst tertiary students to counter the potential for…

Brezina, Vaclav; Pallotti, Gabriele – Second Language Research, 2019
Morphological complexity (MC) is a relatively new construct in second language acquisition (SLA). After critically discussing existing approaches to calculating MC in first- and second-language acquisition research, this article presents a new operationalization of the construct, the Morphological Complexity Index (MCI). The MCI is applied in two…

De Clercq, Bastien; Housen, Alex – Second Language Research, 2019
Studies in second language acquisition (SLA) increasingly rely on measures of linguistic complexity to assess second language (L2) proficiency and development. While an important number of studies have risen to the call of studying a broader range of complexity related constructs (Bulté and Housen, 2012; Norris and Ortega, 2009), few have examined…

Ehret, Katharina; Szmrecsanyi, Benedikt – Second Language Research, 2019
We present a proof-of-concept study that sketches the use of compression algorithms to assess Kolmogorov complexity, which is a text-based, quantitative, holistic, and global measure of structural surface redundancy. Kolmogorov complexity has been used to explore cross-linguistic complexity variation in linguistic typology research, but we are the…
