Smart, Julie B.; Igo, L. Brent – Elementary School Journal, 2010
In this grounded theory study, 19 teachers were interviewed and then, in constant comparative fashion, the interview data were analyzed. The theoretical model that emerged from the data describes novice teachers' tendencies to select and implement differing strategies related to the severity of student behavior. When confronting mild student…

Igo, L. Brent; Bruning, Roger A.; Riccomini, Paul J. – RMLE Online: Research in Middle Level Education, 2009
In the experimental phase of this mixed-methods study, 49 middle school students receiving special education services took notes from the Internet under either a written notes or a copy-and-paste notes condition. Immediate, cued-recall measures of factual learning showed that students who wrote their notes were better able to recall what they had…

Igo, L. Brent; Kiewra, Kenneth A. – Journal of Advanced Academics, 2007
Previous research has indicated that most students copy and paste notes from Internet sources in a mindless way; they typically paste large sections of text into their notes and then later can recall little of what they have stored. However, supplying students with a note-taking framework that restricts the amount of text that may be pasted can…

Igo, L. Brent; Kiewra, Kenneth A.; Bruning, Roger – Journal of Mixed Methods Research, 2008
In this study, qualitative themes and quantitative findings from previous research were used to justify the exploration of four experimental, note-taking conditions and the impact of those conditions on student learning from Web-based text. However, puzzling results obtained from dependent measures of student learning were quite inconsistent with…

Igo, L. Brent; Kiewra, Kenneth A.; Zumbrunn, Sharon K.; Kirschbaum, Allison L. – Journal of Experimental Education, 2007
Students (N = 124) viewed 14 timed Web pages that distinguished 14 confusing word pairs. In a 2 x 2 factorial design, the authors gave all of the students matrices containing representational pictures for each pair of words, as well as examples of each word in use. One factor in the design was the absence or presence of rules of usage for each…

Igo, L. Brent; Bruning, Roger; McCrudden, Matthew T. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2005
This mixed-methods study examined cognitive correlates and learning outcomes related to the use of copy and paste (CP). Quantitative results indicated that college students whose CP capability was restricted to a small amount of text as they entered information into a matrix-like tool recalled more facts, recognized more concepts, and inferred…

Igo, L. Brent; Riccomini, Paul J.; Bruning, Roger H.; Pope, Ginger G. – Learning Disability Quarterly, 2006
This explanatory sequential mixed-methods study explored how the encoding of text ideas is affected when students with learning disabilities (LD) take notes from Web-based text. In the quantitative phase of the study, 15 students took three kinds of notes--typed, copy and paste, and written--with each kind of notes addressing a different topic.…

Igo, L. Brent; Kiewra, Kenneth A.; Bruning, Roger – Journal of Experimental Education, 2004
The extant picture-learning research does not address confusing word pairs that are not concrete (e.g., in and into). In this study, university students viewed 11 timed Web pages containing information on confusing word pairs. Each page addressed one word pair and distinguished the words with examples (example group), examples and rules (rule…

Marshall, Jeff C.; Horton, Robert; Igo, Brent L.; Switzer, Deborah M. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2009
A survey instrument was developed and administered to 1,222 K-12 mathematics and science teachers to measure their beliefs about and use of inquiry in the classroom. Four variables (grade level taught, content area taught, level of support received, and self-efficacy for teaching inquiry) were significantly correlated to two dependent variables,…
