Sauvé, Louise; Fortin, Anne; Viger, Chantal; Landry, France – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2018
Study programme withdrawal and student perseverance in post-secondary education are major challenges for post-secondary institutions, especially in view of the increasing difficulty of retaining the student clientele during the first year of university studies. To analyse the challenges students face in terms of learning strategies, we asked…

Khechine, Hager; Lakhal, Sawsen – Journal of Information Technology Education: Research, 2018
Aim/Purpose: We aim to bring a better understanding of technology use in the educational context. More specifically, we investigate the determinants of webinar acceptance by university students and the effects of this acceptance on students' outcomes in the presence of personal characteristics such as anxiety, attitude, computer self-efficacy, and…

Robson, Karen; Anisef, Paul; George, R. C. – Canadian Journal of Higher Education, 2018
Using data from two cohorts of Grade 12 students in Toronto, we examined whether the transition to post-secondary education changed between 2006 and 2011, particularly for under-represented groups. We used multilevel, multinomial logistic regressions to examine how the intersections of race and sex affect post-secondary transitions in the two…

Wammes, Jeffrey D.; Meade, Melissa E.; Fernandes, Myra A. – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2018
Drawing a picture of to-be-remembered information substantially boosts memory performance in free-recall tasks. In the current work, we sought to test the notion that drawing confers its benefit to memory performance by creating a detailed recollection of the encoding context. In Experiments 1 and 2, we demonstrated that for both pictures and…

Andrade, Andrew; Chopra, Shivangi; Nurlybayev, Bahra; Golab, Lukasz – International Journal of Work-Integrated Learning, 2018
This paper investigates the impact of entrepreneurship on cooperative job creation in a large North American post-secondary institution. The data-driven analysis is enabled by two unique datasets: a list of companies started by the institution's engineering students and faculty, and a database of the institution's cooperative education (co-op)…

Cochrane, Brett A.; Nwabuike, Andrea A.; Thomson, David R.; Milliken, Bruce – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2018
Maljkovic and Nakayama (1994) found that pop-out search performance is more efficient when a singleton target feature repeats rather than switches from 1 trial to the next--an effect known as priming of pop-out (PoP). They also reported findings indicating that the PoP effect is strongly automatic, as it was unaffected by knowledge of the upcoming…

Schwieter, John W.; Ferreira, Aline; Miller, Paul Chamness – Intercultural Education, 2018
English-speaking learners of L2 Spanish who were taking part in a four-week study abroad program in Spain and Japanese-speaking learners of L2 English who were individually studying in year-long abroad experiences participated in the present study. Quantitative and qualitative data from language questionnaires and contact profiles along with…

Anderson, Scott; Goss, Allen; Inglis, Mike; Kaplan, Alan; Samarbakhsh, Laleh; Toffanin, Melissa – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2018
We studied the impact of clickers, also known as electronic student response systems, on the performance of students on two undergraduate finance courses. Consistent with some of the recent literature, we found that clickers have very little impact on student performance, as measured by final course grades. Further, we found that clickers do not…

Monk, Jennifer M.; Newton, Genevieve – International Journal of Higher Education, 2018
We investigated whether the implementation of a scaffolded case study assignment could increase student perceptions of their scientific literacy (SL) skills in a third year Nutritional Science course. The change in students' SL perceptions were assessed by the completion of two surveys (administered at the start and end of the semester) consisting…

McFadden, K.; Berry, T. R.; McHugh, T. F.; Rodgers, W. M. – Journal of American College Health, 2018
Objective: To explore older adolescents' reflective and impulsive thoughts about health- and social/appearance-related physical activity (PA) outcomes and investigate how those thoughts relate to their PA behavior. Participants: One hundred and forty-four undergraduate students (109 women; 35 men) aged 17-19 years (M = 18.11, SD = 0.65)…

White, Darcy; Besner, Derek – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2017
There are multiple reports, in the context of the time taken to read aloud, that the joint effects of stimulus quality and word frequency (a) interact when only words appear in the list but (b) are additive when nonwords are intermixed with words (O'Malley & Besner, 2008). This triple interaction has been explained in terms of the idea that…

Lodewyk, Ken; Sullivan, Philip – JTRM in Kinesiology, 2017
A recently validated trait personality framework is the HEXACO (honesty-humility, emotionality, extraversion, agreeableness, conscientiousness, and openness to experience). Little is yet known about how the HEXACO personality dimensions and its subsets--particularly the dimension of honesty-humility--relates to physical activity and body size…

Sana, Faria; Yan, Veronica X.; Kim, Joseph A. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2017
The sequence in which problems of different concepts are studied during instruction impacts concept learning. For example, several problems of a given concept can be studied together (blocking) or several problems of different concepts can be studied together (interleaving). In the current study, we demonstrate that the 2 sequences impact concept…

Cash, Ceilidh Barlow; Letargo, Jessa; Graether, Steffen P.; Jacobs, Shoshanah R. – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2017
Large class learning is a reality that is not exclusive to the first-year experience at midsized, comprehensive universities; upper-year courses have similarly high enrollment, with many class sizes greater than 200 students. Research into the efficacy and deficiencies of large undergraduate classes has been ongoing for more than 100 years, with…

Parker, James D. A.; Saklofske, Donald H.; Keefer, Kateryna V. – Gifted Education International, 2017
Much of the work on predicting academic success in postsecondary education has focused on the impact of various cognitive abilities, although in recent years there has been increased attention to the role played by emotional and social competency [also called emotional intelligence (EI)]. Previous work on the link between EI and giftedness is…
