Karp, Karen S.; Bush, Sarah B.; Dougherty, Barbara J. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2019
Word problems are an essential component of providing a context for computation but are also recognized as an enduring struggle for students. Students are challenged to solve these story-based problems, often resorting to trial and error. This article presents meaningful alternative approaches to helping students make sense of word problems.

Rowe, Emma; Lubienski, Christopher; Skourdoumbis, Andrew; Gerrard, Jessica; Hursh, David – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2019
Neoliberalism as a concept, ideology, or theoretical lens has emerged in the last couple of decades as a monolithic presence in education research, and the social sciences more broadly. We bring two aims to this Special Issue: to critique the rigour of neoliberalism as a theoretical framework utilised within education research; and second, to…

Cassuto, Leonard – Chronicle of Higher Education, 2012
The practical goal of graduate education is placement of graduates. But what does "placement" mean? Academics use the word without thinking much about it. "Placement" is a great keyword for the graduate-school enterprise. For one thing, its meaning certainly gives a purpose to graduate education. Furthermore, the word is a portal into the way of…

Danciulescu, Theodora Ioana; Mihaescu, Marian Cristian; Heras, Stella; Palanca, Javier; Julian, Vicente – International Educational Data Mining Society, 2020
Building and especially improving a classification kernel represents a challenging task. The works presented in this paper continue an already developed semi-supervised classification approach that aimed at labelling transcripts from educational videos. We questioned whether the size of the ground-truth data-set (Wikipedia articles) or the quality…

Turkman, Burak; Runco, Mark A. – Gifted and Talented International, 2019
This study investigated how creativity reveals itself in written language and showed that creative ideas can be identified in written works by discovering words and phrases (keywords) that are used to introduce new ideas. Additionally, this study sought to find a solution to alleviate creativity's laborious scoring procedure. The sample included…

Doecke, Brenton; Howie, Mark; Sawyer, Wayne – English in Australia, 2007
Borrowing the title of Raymond Williams' famous study, the following reflections--sometimes collective and sometimes individual--are based on a series of "Keywords", specifically: "fear", "community" and "creativity". By reflecting on the meanings these words have for us today, we attempt to capture their dialogical character, posing them as sites…

Waldeyer, Julia; Roelle, Julian – Metacognition and Learning, 2021
Prompting learners to generate keywords after a delay is a promising means to enhance relative judgment accuracy in learning from texts. However, to date, conceptual replications of the keyword effect without the involvement of the researcher who originally proposed it are still scarce. Furthermore, it is unclear whether generating delayed…

Lippmann, Marie; Danielson, Robert W.; Schwartz, Neil H.; Körndle, Hermann; Narciss, Susanne – Metacognition and Learning, 2021
This investigation examines the effects of keyword tasks (Immediate vs. Delayed) on metacognitive monitoring, study regulation, and recall in multi-step learning tasks, which require learning information from expository texts. The titles of the expository texts were biased towards information that was either stated close to the title…

Stevens, Mallory A.; Burns, Matthew K. – American Journal on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, 2021
The purpose of the current study was to determine the extent to which practicing keywords increased word recognition, reading fluency and comprehension for students with intellectual disability (ID). The dependent measures included word recognition (i.e., the percentage of previously unknown keywords read correctly in the given text), reading…

Feng, Shihui; Law, Nancy – International Journal of Artificial Intelligence in Education, 2021
In this study, we review 1830 research articles on artificial intelligence in education (AIED), with the aim of providing a holistic picture of the knowledge evolution in this interdisciplinary research field from 2010 to 2019. A novel three-step approach in the analysis of the keyword co-occurrence networks (KCN) is proposed to identify the…

Knight, Melinda – Business and Professional Communication Quarterly, 2018
An analysis of user interactions, proceedings papers, and Association for Business Communication-sponsored journals reveals an absence of attention to accessibility and disability. While researchers may have demonstrated a passing awareness of the 1990 American with Disabilities Act (ADA) and its implications, so far those implications have not…

Rammal, Mahmoud; Bahsoun, Zeinab; Al Achkar Jabbour, Mona – Interactive Technology and Smart Education, 2015
Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to apply local grammar (LG) to develop an indexing system which automatically extracts keywords from titles of Lebanese official journals. Design/methodology/approach: To build LG for our system, the first word that plays the determinant role in understanding the meaning of a title is analyzed and grouped as…

Fouz-González, Jonás; Mompean, Jose A. – Studies in Second Language Acquisition, 2020
This study investigated the potential of phonetic symbols and keywords as response labels for perceptual training of L2 sounds. Seventy-one Spanish learners of English were assigned to three groups: symbols, keywords, and control. Students in the symbols and keywords groups followed a 4-week High Variability Phonetic Training (HVPT) program based…

Berger, Armin – Language Assessment Quarterly, 2020
The Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR), with its illustrative scales and salient features of spoken language at the reference levels, is widely used as the base for rating scales for performance testing. If practitioners want to measure and report even small gains in proficiency, they need to adapt the descriptors to their local context…

Ross, Lauren; Geertsema, Salomé; le Roux, Mia; Alet Graham, Marien – Communication Disorders Quarterly, 2020
Use of nonwords is a potentially more appropriate method of assessment for English second language (EL2) learners. A mixed comparative design was used to compare the effects when using nonwords instead of picture-based stimuli to assess articulation of EL2 learners. Subaims were to compare results between two tests and age groups. In all, 16…
