Cóndor-Herrera, Omar; Ramos-Galarza, Carlos – Education and Information Technologies, 2021
Learning mathematics is a challenge in the current educational context. This is demonstrated by a high percentage of students who both fail to develop these numerical-type skills and have a low academic performance. This research performs a quasi-experiment to develop mathematical skills and knowledge. The sample consisted of 54 students (20…

Musso, Mariel F.; Hernández, Carlos Felipe Rodríguez; Cascallar, Eduardo C. – Higher Education: The International Journal of Higher Education Research, 2020
Predicting and understanding different key outcomes in a student's academic trajectory such as grade point average, academic retention, and degree completion would allow targeted intervention programs in higher education. Most of the predictive models developed for those key outcomes have been based on traditional methodological approaches.…

Schreurs, Sanne; Cleutjens, Kitty; Collares, Carlos F.; Cleland, Jennifer; oude Egbrink, Mirjam G. A. – Advances in Health Sciences Education, 2020
Medical school selection is currently in the paradoxical situation in which selection tools may predict study outcomes, but which constructs are actually doing the predicting is unknown (the 'black box of selection'). Therefore, our research focused on those constructs, answering the question: do the internal structures of the tests in an…

Marcos, Carlos F.; Neo, Ana G.; Díaz, Jesús; Martínez-Caballero, Sonia – Journal of Chemical Education, 2020
Radical chemistry is an essential part of the organic chemistry curriculum. Free radical halogenation experiments provide an excellent opportunity to introduce important topics related to the outcome and mechanism of organic reactions. In this communication, a green photochemically activated benzylic bromination of p-toluic acid is described. In…

Saiz, Carlos; Rivas, Silvia F.; Olivares, Sonia – Journal of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, 2015
In previous works we developed and assessed a teaching program, ARDESOS v.1, with which we aimed to improve the fundamental skills of critical thinking. The results obtained were positive, but modest. After analyzing the limitations of the program we introduced certain modifications and assessed the new version. The changes involved designing the…
