Pettersen, Andreas; Braeken, Johan – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
The implementation of mathematical competencies in school curricula requires assessment instruments to be aligned with this new view on mathematical mastery. However, there are concerns over whether existing assessments capture the wide variety of cognitive skills and abilities that constitute mathematical competence. The current study applied an…

Dervic, Dževdeta; Dap, Nermin; Mešic, Vanes; Ðokic, Ratko – Journal of Education in Science, Environment and Health, 2019
Animations are widely used in today's science classrooms. Therefore it is very important to explore under which conditions animations are most effective. In earlier studies it has been generally shown that the effectiveness of instruction largely depends on management of cognitive load. The aim of the present study was to compare the effect of…

Griffin, Barbara; Auton, Jaime; Duvivier, Robbert; Shulruf, Boaz; Hu, Wendy – Advances in Health Sciences Education, 2019
This study compared the profile of those who, after initial failure to be selected, choose to reapply to study medicine with those who did not reapply. It also evaluates the chance of a successful outcome for re-applicants. In 2013, 4007 applicants to undergraduate medical schools in the largest state in Australia were unsuccessful. Those who…

Cirino, Paul T.; Tolar, Tammy D.; Fuchs, Lynn S. – Journal of Educational Research, 2019
Algebra I is a crucial course for middle and high school students for successful STEM-related coursework. A key issue is whether students should take Algebra I in Grade 8 versus Grade 9. Large-scale policy studies show conflicting results, and there are few (particularly longitudinal) individual difference studies. In the study, 53 students were…

Shepley, Sally B.; Ayres, Kevin M.; Cagliani, Rachel; Whiteside, Erinn – Education and Training in Autism and Developmental Disabilities, 2018
Self-instruction is a pivotal skill that promotes independence and self-determination by allowing individuals to independently access prompts during the acquisition of new skills while decreasing the need for support from another person. Self-mediated video modeling (SMVM) and video self-prompting (VSP) are two methods of video-based…

McDonnall, Michele C.; Cmar, Jennifer L. – Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, 2018
Literature and research on deafblind youths and young adults has historically been limited. Most existing publications focus on school-related issues, family issues, or communication for children and youths, and the literature related to post--high school outcomes is much more limited, with only three publications specific to this population. The…

Weckbacher, Lisa Marie; Okamoto, Yukari – Journal of Education and Learning, 2018
There is a consensus that certain cognitive abilities and mathematics performance are related. This link also extends to geometry. Surprisingly, however, little research has examined specific aspects of cognition that may contribute to successful performance in geometry, particularly at the secondary level. In this study, we explored in what ways,…

Chang, Chew Hung; Seow, Tricia – Geographical Education, 2018
The word "test" comes to mind when a person, who is unacquainted with education discourses, reads about assessment issues. Beyond issues of reliability and validity in designing measurement constructs, assessment for school geography must result in better geographical learning. In other words, there must be "consequential…
