There is a wide range of activity in the higher education sector labelled 'students as partners' and 'co-creation in learning and teaching'.

Finch, Jenna E.; Garcia, Elisa B.; Sulik, Michael J.; Obradovic, Jelena – AERA Open, 2019
Students' executive functions (EFs) are linked to school success.

Development of fraction number line estimation was assessed longitudinally over 5 time points between 4th and 6th grades. Although students showed positive linear growth overall, latent class growth analyses revealed 3 distinct growth trajectory classes: Students who were highly accurate from the start and became even more accurate (n = 154);…

Strauss, Pat; U-Mackey, Alice; Crothers, Charles – Intercultural Education, 2014
Our university hosts a diverse student cohort and, in certain discipline areas, international students and domestic students whose first language is not English outnumber their English-speaking peers.

Davis, Tomeka M. – Education and Urban Society, 2014
Three arguments regarding racial equity have arisen in the school choice debate. Choice advocates charge that choice will improve access to quality schools for disadvantaged minority students (Chubb & Moe 1990; Coons & Sugarman, 1978; Godwin & Kemerer, 2002; Viteritti, 1999). Critics argue that choice is unlikely to benefit minority…

Literature and research review supports that students' beliefs about their efficacy, both as…
