Voight, Adam; Hanson, Thomas – Regional Educational Laboratory West, 2017
A growing number of educators concur that, in order to improve student academic performance, schools need to focus not only on students' academic needs but also on their social, emotional, and material needs (Piscatelli & Lee, 2011). As a result, school climate--the social, emotional, and physical characteristics of a school community (Cohen,…

Guasch, Marc; Haro, Juan; Boada, Roger – Psicologica: International Journal of Methodology and Experimental Psychology, 2017
With the increasing refinement of language processing models and the new discoveries about which variables can modulate these processes, stimuli selection for experiments with a factorial design is becoming a tough task. Selecting sets of words that differ in one variable, while matching these same words into dozens of other confounding variables…

Moro-Egido, Ana I.; Pedauga, Luis E. – Interactive Learning Environments, 2017
In the present paper, we develop a teaching methodology for economic theory. The main contribution of this paper relies on combining the interactive characteristics of spreadsheet programs such as Excel and Unicode plain-text linear format for mathematical expressions. The advantage of Unicode standard rests on its ease for writing and reading…

Reding, Tracie Evans; Squires, Amelia; Grandgenett, Neal; Keller, Sydney; Grandgenett, Hanna; Hodge, Angie; Argo, Christina; Jacobberger, Katrina – International Journal of Research in Education and Science, 2017
There is a global issue concerning the disparity in educational achievement associated with the socioeconomic status of students, known in the U.S. as the Achievement Gap. This Achievement Gap highly correlates with what has been called the Opportunity Gap for professional careers. This paper discusses this Opportunity Gap and how the University…

Alkas Ulusoy, Cigdem; Kayhan Altay, Mesture – International Journal of Research in Education and Science, 2017
The purpose of this study is to analyze the statistical reasoning levels of preservice elementary school teachers. With this purpose, pre-service teachers consisting of 29 groups worked on a model eliciting activity (MEA) in scope of an elective course they were taking. At the end of the class, they were asked to present their solutions while…

Letwinsky, Karim Medico – International Journal of Research in Education and Science, 2017
The rich language surrounding mathematical concepts often is reduced in many classrooms to a narrow process of memorizing isolated procedures with little context. This approach has proven to be detrimental to students' ability to understand mathematics at deeper levels and remain engaged with this content. The current generation of students values…
