Berk, Louis J.; Muret-Wagstaff, Sharon L.; Goyal, Riya; Joyal, Julie A.; Gordon, James A.; Faux, Russell; Oriol, Nancy E. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2014
The most effective ways to promote learning and inspire careers related to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) remain elusive. To address this gap, we reviewed the literature and designed and implemented a high-fidelity, medical simulation-based Harvard Medical School MEDscience course, which was integrated into high school…

Freedman, David A.; Berk, Richard A. – Evaluation Review, 2008
Regressions can be weighted by propensity scores in order to reduce bias. However, weighting is likely to increase random error in the estimates, and to bias the estimated standard errors downward, even when selection mechanisms are well understood. Moreover, in some cases, weighting will increase the bias in estimated causal parameters. If…

Peramunage, Dasun; Blumstein, Sheila E.; Myers, Emily B.; Goldrick, Matthew; Baese-Berk, Melissa – Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience, 2011
The current study examined the neural systems underlying lexically conditioned phonetic variation in spoken word production. Participants were asked to read aloud singly presented words, which either had a voiced minimal pair (MP) neighbor (e.g., cape) or lacked a minimal pair (NMP) neighbor (e.g., cake). The voiced neighbor never appeared in the…

Berk, Dawn; Taber, Susan B.; Gorowara, Christine Carrino; Poetzl, Christina – Mathematical Thinking and Learning: An International Journal, 2009
Flexibility in the use of mathematics procedures consists of the ability to employ multiple solution methods across a set of problems, solve the same problem using multiple methods, and choose strategically from among methods so as to reduce computational demands. The purpose of this study was to characterize prospective elementary teachers' (n =…

Suppa, Siobahn; DiNapoli, Joseph; Mixell, Robert – Mathematics Teacher Education and Development, 2018
In the United States, teacher preparation programs are under increased pressure to demonstrate their effectiveness in producing graduates with knowledge, abilities, and competencies to be quality teachers. However, very little research shows this kind of evidence. In a rare exception, Hiebert, Miller, and Berk (2017) found significant positive…
