Harris, Nicolette; Welch Bacon, Cailee E. – Athletic Training Education Journal, 2019
Objective: To systematically review current literature to determine whether active learning is more successful than passive learning at producing cognitive skills in health care professions students. Data Sources: An electronic search was conducted in 4 databases: EBSCO-CINAHL, EBSCO-Sport Discus, Educational Resources Information Center, and…

Bradshaw, William S.; Groneman, Kathryn J.; Nelson, Jennifer; Bell, John D. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2018
This article describes efforts aimed at improving comprehension and retention of complex molecular mechanisms commonly studied in undergraduate biology and biochemistry courses. The focus is on the design of appropriate assessments, an active classroom emphasizing formative practice, and more effective out-of-class study habits. Assessments that…

Zou, Di; Xie, Haoran – Educational Technology & Society, 2018
Many studies have highlighted the importance of personalized learning, and most current e-learning systems are able to personalize materials, activities, etc., based on individualized learner-factors. However, none of the extant word-learning systems provides a personalized learning experience that is guided by a comprehensive word learning…

Dowling, Carey Bernini – International Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, 2017
This study set out to replicate and extend research on students' reading compliance and examine the impact of daily quizzing methodology on students' reading compliance and retention. 98 students in two sections of Abnormal Psychology participated (mean age = 21.5, SD = 3.35; 72.4% Caucasian). Using a multiple baseline quasi-experimental design…

Rossiter, Marian J.; Abbott, Marilyn L.; Kushnir, Andrea – TESL-EJ, 2016
This study investigates the vocabulary knowledge, beliefs, and practices of adult English as a second language (ESL) instructors. Thirty participants responded to an online survey designed to elicit information regarding their knowledge and beliefs; approaches to assessment; vocabulary teaching techniques and strategies; instructional practices…

Conner, Kimberly – Mathematics Teacher, 2015
This article is based on the author's experiences as a second-year teacher at a small private school teaching all sections of Geometry and Algebra 2. Working with the same students in both courses, the author was aware of each one's levels of retention and execution of Algebra 1 concepts before the beginning of the year. The author often noticed…

Nixon, Ryan S.; Smith, Leigh K.; Wimmer, Jennifer J. – School Science and Mathematics, 2015
This quasi-experimental study investigated how explicit instruction about multiple modes of representation (MMR) impacted grades 7 (n = 61) and 8 (n = 141) students' learning and multimodal use on end-of-unit assessments. Half of each teacher's (n = 3) students received an intervention consisting of explicit instruction on MMR in science…

Lin, Jian-Wei; Lai, Yuan-Cheng; Szu, Yu-Chin; Lai, Ching-Neng; Chuang, Yuh-Shy; Chen, Yen-Hung – Educational Technology & Society, 2014
Solving well-structured problems often requires using considerable related concepts which are usually scattered and introduced throughout different learning units of a subject. In addition, poor learning of related concepts of preceding units may block the learning of subsequent units, and eventually leads to the inability to solve well-structured…

Kottke, Janet L.; Valencia, Leslie A.; Shultz, Kenneth S. – Psychology Learning and Teaching, 2013
Actively engaged participants in the learning process typically demonstrate superior learning outcomes, better retention, and more satisfaction with the learning experience. The authors present the use of a simulated selection interview (SSI) as a culminating experience in a graduate-level personnel selection course as a way to engage students…

Weisz, Victoria I.; Argibay, Pablo F. – Cognition, 2012
In contrast to models and theories that relate adult neurogenesis with the processes of learning and memory, almost no solid hypotheses have been formulated that involve a possible neurocomputational influence of adult neurogenesis on forgetting. Based on data from a previous study that implemented a simple but complete model of the main…

Randler, Christoph; Kummer, Barbara; Wilhelm, Christian – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2012
The aim of this study was to assess the outcome of a zoo visit in terms of learning and retention of knowledge concerning the adaptations and behavior of vertebrate species. Basis of the work was the concept of implementing zoo visits as an out-of-school setting for formal, curriculum based learning. Our theoretical framework centers on the…

Little, Jeri Lynn – ProQuest LLC, 2011
Although generally used for assessment, tests can also serve as tools for learning--but different test formats may not be equally beneficial. Specifically, research has shown multiple-choice tests to be less effective than cued-recall tests in improving the later retention of the tested information (e.g., see meta-analysis by Hamaker, 1986),…

Poteau, Christine E. – ProQuest LLC, 2011
Recent research in second language acquisition has focused on the effects of group work on learning by examining various factors (i.e., motivation, age, task, gender differences, etc.). One particular factor that has not been heavily investigated is interlocutor familiarity, which is at the forefront of the present study. Two separate classes (in…

White, K. Geoffrey; Brown, Glenn S. – Journal of the Experimental Analysis of Behavior, 2011
Forgetting functions were generated for pigeons in a delayed matching-to-sample task, in which accuracy decreased with increasing retention-interval duration. In baseline training with dark retention intervals, accuracy was high overall. Illumination of the experimental chamber by a houselight during the retention interval impaired performance…

MacGillivray, Helen; Croft, Tony – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2011
With rapid and continuing growth of learning support initiatives in mathematics and statistics found in many parts of the world, and with the likelihood that this trend will continue, there is a need to ensure that robust and coherent measures are in place to evaluate the effectiveness of these initiatives. The nature of learning support brings…
