Wang, Lifeng; Khalaf, Ahmad Taha; Lei, Dongyu; Gale, Mengke; Li, Jing; Jiang, Ping; Du, Jing; Yinayeti, Xuehereti; Abudureheman, Mayinuer; Wei, Yuanyuan – Advances in Physiology Education, 2020
Traditional oral examination (TOE) is criticized for the shortage of objectivity, standardization, and reliability. These perceived limitations can be mitigated by the introduction of structured oral examination (SOE). There is little evidence of the implementation of SOE in physiology laboratory courses. The purpose of this study was to…

Bielak, Allison A. M.; Anstey, Kaarin J. – Developmental Psychology, 2019
Intraindividual variability (IIV) in cognitive speed, or moment-to-moment changes in ability, is a developmental phenomenon indicative of neurological integrity that increases gradually across adulthood. Past research has shown that IIV negatively covaries with cognitive performance, in which higher IIV at one occasion is associated with poorer…
