Reid, Edwin; Guise, Jeanne-Marie; Fiordalisi, Celia; Macdonald, Scott; Chang, Stephanie – Research Synthesis Methods, 2021
Evidence-based decision-making is predicated on the ability of users to find and comprehend results from systematic review. Evidence producers have an obligation to support evidence users in this process. The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Evidence-based Practice Center (EPC) program--a producer of rigorous and comprehensive…

Boon, Michele Hilton; Thomson, Hilary – Research Synthesis Methods, 2021
Effect direction (evidence to indicate improvement, deterioration, or no change in an outcome) can be used as a standardized metric which enables the synthesis of diverse effect measures in systematic reviews. The effect direction (ED) plot was developed to support the synthesis and visualization of effect direction data. Methods for the ED plot…

Wang, Junfeng; Keusters, Willem R.; Wen, Lingzi; Leeflang, Mariska M. G. – Research Synthesis Methods, 2021
Background: Individual patient data meta-analyses (IPD-MA) are regarded as the gold standard for systematic reviews, which also applies to systematic reviews of diagnostic test accuracy (DTA) studies. An increasing number of DTA systematic reviews with IPD-MA have been published in recent years, but there is much variation in how these IPD-MA were…

Seo, Michael; Furukawa, Toshi A.; Veroniki, Areti Angeliki; Pillinger, Toby; Tomlinson, Anneka; Salanti, Georgia; Cipriani, Andrea; Efthimiou, Orestis – Research Synthesis Methods, 2021
Network meta-analysis (NMA) can be used to compare multiple competing treatments for the same disease. In practice, usually a range of outcomes is of interest. As the number of outcomes increases, summarizing results from multiple NMAs becomes a nontrivial task, especially for larger networks. Moreover, NMAs provide results in terms of relative…

Turner, Simon L.; Karahalios, Amalia; Forbes, Andrew B.; Taljaard, Monica; Grimshaw, Jeremy M.; Korevaar, Elizabeth; Cheng, Allen C.; Bero, Lisa; McKenzie, Joanne E. – Research Synthesis Methods, 2021
Introduction: Interrupted Time Series (ITS) studies may be used to assess the impact of an interruption, such as an intervention or exposure. The data from such studies are particularly amenable to visual display and, when clearly depicted, can readily show the short- and long-term impact of an interruption. Further, well-constructed graphs allow…

Luo, Yan; Chaimani, Anna; Furukawa, Toshi A.; Kataoka, Yuki; Ogawa, Yusuke; Cipriani, Andrea; Salanti, Georgia – Research Synthesis Methods, 2021
It is often challenging to present the available evidence in a timely and comprehensible manner. We aimed to visualize the evolution of evidence about antidepressants for depression by conducting cumulative network meta-analyses (NMAs) and to examine whether it could have helped the selection of optimal drugs. We built a Shiny web application that…

Papakonstantinou, Theodoros; Nikolakopoulou, Adriani; Egger, Matthias; Salanti, Georgia – Research Synthesis Methods, 2021
Meta-analysis results are usually presented in forest plots, which show the individual study results and the summary effect along with their confidence intervals. In this paper, we propose a system of linear springs as a mechanical analogue of meta-analysis that enables visualization and enhances intuition. The length of a spring corresponds to a…

Seide, Svenja E.; Jensen, Katrin; Kieser, Meinhard – Research Synthesis Methods, 2021
Traditional visualization in meta-analysis uses forest plots to illustrate the combined treatment effect, along with the respective results from primary trials. While the purpose of visualization is clear in the pairwise setting, additional treatments broaden the focus and extend the results to be illustrated in network meta-analysis. The…

Abdinejad, Maryam; Talaie, Borzu; Qorbani, Hossain S.; Dalili, Shadi – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2021
Visualizing molecular conformations and complex compound structures and chemical transformations in 3D is one of the most difficult tasks for undergraduate chemistry students. Modern computational technologies have revolutionized every aspect of our lives, including education. As a result, many researchers and educators are working on enhancing…

Stenlund, Jörgen Ingemar; Schönborn, Konrad Janek; Tibell, Lena Anna Elisabet – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2021
Central to evolution is the concept of a common ancestry from which all life has emerged over immense time scales, but learning and teaching temporal aspects of evolution remain challenging. This study investigated students' interpretation of evolutionary time when engaging with a multi-touch tabletop application called DeepTree, a dynamic…

Wilkie, Karina J. – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2021
Teachers whose mathematical meanings support understanding across different contexts are likely to convey them in productive ways for coherent student learning. This exploratory study sought to elicit 67 secondary mathematics pre-service teachers' (PSTs) meanings for quadratics with growing pattern creation and multiple translation tasks. A…

Lowrie, Tom; Harris, Danielle; Logan, Tracy; Hegarty, Mary – Journal of Experimental Education, 2021
There is increasing evidence for the impact of spatial training on mathematics performance in early years of education, however little research has focused on secondary school environments, which are traditionally more discipline driven. In the present study, a large-scale classroom-based intervention saw the introduction of twelve hours of…

Weigelt, Matthias; Memmert, Daniel – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2021
Purpose: The purpose was (1) to test a new version of a mental rotation task (MRT), which assesses mental rotation abilities of men and women for sport-specific items, and (2) to investigate potential differences in MRT performance, which are based on athletic expertise. Methods: Eighty-eight basketball experts (42 females) and 123 novices (64…

Hughes, Theo; Kersting, Magdalena – Physics Education, 2021
Recently, the physics education community has taken a keen interest in modernising physics education. However, while topics in modern physics have great potential to engage students, these topics are abstract and hard-to-visualise. Therefore, many students hold mistaken pictures and misconceptions, which can impede learning. In this article, we…

Veith, Sonja Isabel; Friege, Gunnar – Physics Education, 2021
Sound is an interesting topic for physics lessons at all ages. However, it is difficult to illustrate this ubiquitous phenomenon and many models do not adequately represent the properties of sound and thus promote unwanted conceptions. The experiment presented here avoids this by visualising sound itself with the help of the schlieren technique.…
