Ralston, Kevin; Gorton, Victoria; MacInnes, John; Gayle, Vernon; Crow, Graham – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2021
One of the most commonly identified obstacles in the learning-teaching of quantitative material is statistics anxiety. Of the factors analysed in relation to statistics anxiety, age and gender have received a substantial proportion of the research focus. Yet there is limited work that systematically examines the possibility of an…

Powell, Sarah R.; Nelson, Gena – Psychology in the Schools, 2021
To understand misconceptions with rational numbers (i.e., fractions, decimals, and percentages), we administered an assessment of rational numbers to 331 undergraduate students from a 4-year university. The assessment included 41 items categorized as measuring foundational understanding, calculations, or word problems. We coded each student's…

Radzimski, Vanessa; Leung, Fok-Shuen; Sargent, Pam; Prat, Alain – PRIMUS, 2021
We discuss an innovative course model used in first-year calculus courses at a large North American research university, which we refer to as the "Blended Model." We argue that our model takes the best features of lectures, flipped classrooms, and traditional recitations, and gathers them into a cohesive, robust structure that benefits…

Jensen, Michaeline; Hussong, Andrea M. – International Journal of Behavioral Development, 2021
The ubiquity of digital communication within the high-risk drinking environment of college students raises exciting new directions for prevention research. However, we are lacking relevant constructs and tools to analyze digital platforms that serve to facilitate, discuss, and rehash alcohol use. In the current study, we introduce the construct of…

Bolkan, San; Pedersen, William C.; Stormes, Kaitlyn N.; Manke, Beth – Journal of College Student Retention: Research, Theory & Practice, 2021
In this study, we investigated how environmental, cognitive, and demographic variables influenced students' ability to graduate from a 4-year university in 4 years. Specifically, we examined how behaviors related to social cognitive career theory (i.e., self-efficacy, outcome expectations, and academic goals) were influenced by contextual…

Conte, Daniele B.; Zancanaro, Milena; Guollo, André; Schneider, Luana R.; Lund, Rafael G.; Rodrigues-Junior, Sinval A. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2021
This systematic review aimed to identify the level of impact of educational strategies for teaching tooth carving on the carving ability of undergraduate dental students. The PubMed-NCBI, Cochrane-CENTRAL, LILACS, Ibecs, BBO, Web of Science, and Scopus databases were searched in May 2019, for randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and two-arm…

Cope, Janet M.; Bennett, Cynthia C.; Balilionis, Gytis; Person, Dianne M. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2021
In 2017, Elon University became one of very few universities in the United States without a medical school to have an in-house Anatomical Gift Program (AGP). The program accepts first-person-consenting individuals only and within 2.5 years has become self-sufficient, supporting anatomy curricular needs of its physical therapy, physician assistant,…

Savoldi, Fabio; Yeung, Andy W. K.; Tanaka, Ray; Mohammad Zadeh, Lisa S.; Montalvao, Carla; Bornstein, Michael M.; Tsoi, James K. H. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2021
Learning bone anatomy of the skull is a complex topic involving three-dimensional information. The impact of the use of human dry skulls and cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) imaging was investigated in the teaching of undergraduate dental students. Sixty-four first-year students in the University of Hong Kong were randomly divided into eight…

Jiang, Nan; Zhang, Jianqin – Second Language Research, 2021
Two lines of evidence emerged in the past suggesting that lexical form seemed to play a more important role in the organization of the second language (L2) mental lexicon than in that of the first language (L1) lexicon. They were masked orthographic priming in L2 word recognition and an elevated proportion of form-related responses in L2 word…

Buonviri, Nathan O. – Journal of Research in Music Education, 2021
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of two listening strategies on rhythmic dictation scores. In a within-subjects design, 54 undergraduate music majors completed two-measure rhythmic dictations under each of three conditions: (a) no prescribed approach, (b) required listening before writing, and (c) required writing while…

Rott, Benjamin – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2021
Epistemological beliefs are considered to play an important role in processes of learning and teaching. However, research on epistemological beliefs is confronted with methodological issues as for traditionally used self-report instruments with closed items, problems with social desirability, validity, and capturing domain-specific aspects of…

Moreno-Arotzena, Oihana; Pombar-Hospitaler, Ion; Barragués, José Ignacio – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2021
The aim of this research is to study how students recognise the concept of gradient of a function of two variables in its different representations and how they make conversions between these representations. Three groups of university students with different profiles took part in this research, and Duval's theory of semiotic representations was…

Fredriksen, Helge – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2021
Flipped classroom (FC) pedagogical frameworks have recently gained considerable popularity, especially at secondary school levels. However, there are rich opportunities to explore FC at tertiary levels, but progress on the area requires instructors' attention to well-designed tasks for students' collaborative learning. Realistic Mathematics…
