Levin-Banchik, Luba – Journal of Political Science Education, 2018
This study examines the effectiveness of teaching with simulations, compared to active learning without simulations. It utilizes an anonymous extra-credit pop quiz on four topics, each taught with a different method: (1) simulation and in-class debriefing; (2) simulation only; (3) in-class discussions with an accompanying research essay; and (4)…

Sabag, Nissim – Research in Science & Technological Education, 2017
Background:┬áThe importance of knowledge and skills in mathematics for electrical engineering students is well known. Engineers and engineering educators agree that any engineering curriculum must include plenty of mathematics studies to enrich the engineer's toolbox. Nevertheless, little attention has been given to the possible contribution of…

Laufer, Batia; Rozovski-Roitblat, Bella – Language Teaching Research, 2015
We examined how learning new second language (L2) words was affected by three "task type" conditions (reading only, reading with a dictionary, reading and word focused exercises), three "number of encounters" conditions and their combinations. Three groups of L2 learners (n = 185) were exposed to 30 target words (one group in…

Druckman, Daniel; Ebner, Noam – Simulation & Gaming, 2008
In this article, the authors report the results of two experiments that explored hypotheses about the relative learning advantages of role-play and scenario design. The experiments were conducted with similar student populations in Australia and Israel. Using a matched-pairs design, participants were randomly assigned to design and role-play…

Laufer, Batia; Hill, Monica – 2000
This study investigated the relationship between what people looked up about new words when different kinds of information were available and how well they remembered those words. Dictionary information was incorporated into a computer-assisted language learning (CALL) program comprised of text, highlighted low-frequency words, and access to…

Laufer, Batia – Language Learning & Technology, 2000
Investigates use of a computer-assisted language learning (CALL) dictionary and how well words looked up are remembered. The dictionary information has been incorporated into a CALL program that was comprised of a text, highlighted low-frequency words, and provided access to different lexical information about these words. Subjects were…

Ginzburg, S.; Dar-El, E. M. – Journal of Workplace Learning: Employee Counselling Today, 2000
The relationship between relearning and retention was examined during refresher training for 53 Israeli soldiers operating an electronic system. The longer the training interval, the lower the operator's performance level. Partial simulation was suitable for retraining in complex tasks. A cyclical behavior model of learning, forgetting, and…

Vakil, Eli; Blachstein, Haya – Journal of Clinical Psychology, 1993
Evaluated whether different scores on Rey Auditory-Verbal Learning Test are measures of different memory domains. Factor analyses on data from 146 subjects produced 1, 2, or 3 factors depending on combination of scores in analysis and criteria used to determine number of factors. Basic factors were acquisition and retention. Subdividing retention…

Arzi, Hanna J.; And Others – Science Education, 1986
Reports on a longitudinal study of retention of science learning carried out in Israel (from grade 8 to grade 10, ages 13-16). Findings show that retention of meaningful school materials does exist from one course to another, even over relatively extended materials. (JN)

Zehavi, Nurit – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 1988
Describes study of junior high school students in Israel that tested the effectiveness of microcomputer-based software designed to shape students' intuitions in the understanding of graphs of quantitative relationships. Retention and integration of microcomputer activities are discussed, and treatments for the experimental and control groups are…

Arzi, Hanna J.; And Others – American Educational Research Journal, 1985
A longitudinal research study in Israel was designed to investigate effects of mutual interrelations between courses in sequential teaching on long-term retention of learning in a science curriculum. The results implied that a program composed of a hierarchical sequence of learning units is superior to a discontinuous array of discrete courses.…

Tamir, Pinchas; And Others – Higher Education, 1980
The results are reported of a questionnaire on the opinions of biology, medical, and agricultural students on the contribution of high school biology to their college biology study. Most students valued this contribution. High school biology influenced achievement in college biology when based on prior learning. (MSE)

Tamir, Pinchas; Amir, Ruth – Curriculum Inquiry, 1981
The achievement of students in a first-year university biology course is related to two high school variables: the kind of curriculum followed and the level of students' high school biology courses. Students who specialized in biology are compared with students who did not specialize in biology. (Author/MLF)
