Olney, Andrew M.; Bakhtiari, Dariush; Greenberg, Daphne; Graesser, Art – International Educational Data Mining Society, 2017
Adaptive learning technologies hold great promise for improving the reading skills of adults with low literacy, but adults with low literacy skills typically have low computer literacy skills. In order to determine whether adults with low literacy skills would be able to use an intelligent tutoring system for reading comprehension, we adapted a 44…

Olney, Andrew M.; Hosman, Eric; Graesser, Art; D'Mello, Sidney K. – Grantee Submission, 2017
We conducted a pilot study that used kernel-level packet capture to record the web pages visited by college students and the reading difficulty of those pages. Our results indicate that i) no students were fully compliant in their participation, ii) the number of texts encountered by participants was highly skewed, iii) the reading difficulty of…

Olney, Andrew M.; Walker, Breya; Davis, Raven N.; Graesser, Art – Grantee Submission, 2017
Over the past 50 years, an increasing proportion of student graduating high school attend college, but literacy levels in the United States have remained largely unchanged. We present preliminary results that suggest the literacy levels of assessed first year college freshmen are above 5th grade but below 12th grade, that only 32% of these…

Spisak, Art L.; Van Horne, Sam; Hornbuckle, Keri C. – Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council, 2017
Many assume that moving honors students into separate sections adversely affects the academic performance of non-honors students, an assumption the authors faced at their institution. In the context of a study done in a college of engineering, that perception is even stronger because peer-to-peer and group projects are such important pedagogical…

Johnson, Art – Mathematics Teacher, 2009
One way in which geometry teachers can help students develop their reasoning is by providing proof-readiness experiences. Blum and Kirsch (1991) suggest that "preformal proofs" can help students develop deductive reasoning. Preformal proofs, which follow the basic principles of deductive reasoning, can help prepare students for formal deduction in…

El Masri, Yasmine H.; Baird, Jo-Anne; Graesser, Art – Assessment in Education: Principles, Policy & Practice, 2016
We investigate the extent to which language versions (English, French and Arabic) of the same science test are comparable in terms of item difficulty and demands. We argue that language is an inextricable part of the scientific literacy construct, be it intended or not by the examiner. This argument has considerable implications on methodologies…

Harnisch, Thomas; Nassirian, Barmak; Saddler, Amber; Coleman, Art – Education Commission of the States, 2016
This brief examines the "triad" of state governments, the federal government and accrediting agencies and, by shining light on the unique role that state governments play in this partnership, the authors propose reforms that will strengthen the role of state governments, without neglecting the two other legs of the higher education stool.

Cai, Zhiqiang; Li, Hiyiang; Hu, Xiangen; Graesser, Art – Grantee Submission, 2016
This paper provides an alternative way of document representation by treating topic probabilities as a vector representation for words and representing a document as a combination of the word vectors. A comparison on summary data shows that this representation is more effective in document classification. [This paper was published in:…
