Scott, Alyssa P.; Kodak, Tiffany; Cordeiro, Maria Clara – Analysis of Verbal Behavior, 2021
The efficacy and efficiency of instruction may be reduced as a result of persistent response patterns to targets. The current project exposed participants to tact training with one set of targets. Thereafter, the efficacy and efficiency of teaching different responses to the previously trained set of targets was compared to tact training with a…

Hirai, Masahiro; Kanakogi, Yasuhiro; Ikeda, Ayaka – Developmental Science, 2022
'Motionese' can be defined as an exaggerated and repetitive action. It induces preference and learning in infants. However, which action component of motionese promotes infants' preference and learning remains largely unknown. In this study, we focused on inefficiency and toward-ness of action. Our study demonstrates that observing an inefficient…

Zhang, Gang; Li, Huihui; Yan, Shimei – Journal of Creative Behavior, 2021
This study provides insight into the role of expertise in the process of team creativity. Existing process models, that is, the random variation model and the creative synthesis model, either fail to treat team as an independent creative entity or neglect the differentiation in the voice of individual members in team creative process. In contrast,…

Jessel, Joshua; Hanley, Gregory P.; Ghaemmaghami, Mahshid; Carbone, Matthew J. – Education and Treatment of Children, 2022
Jessel et al. ("Behavior Analysis & Practice," 13(1), 205-216, 2020a) conducted a review of the functional analysis literature between the years 1965 and 2016. The authors found an increasing trend in analyses replicating the components of Iwata et al. ("Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis," 27, 197-209, 1982/1994a) and…

de Paor, Cathal – Journal of Curriculum Studies, 2021
Over a hundred years later, "The Curriculum" by John Franklin Bobbitt continues to be relevant for understanding contemporary issues in education. One issue has been the association with elements of reform such as scripted curriculum programmes and high-stakes standardized testing. This article argues that while Bobbitt's message was one…

Zapata, Zakry; Sedory, Stephen A.; Singh, Sarjinder – Sociological Methods & Research, 2022
In this article, we consider the use of the zero-truncated binomial distribution as a randomization device while estimating the population proportion of a sensitive characteristic. The resultant new estimator based on the zero-truncated binomial distribution is then compared to its competitors from both the efficiency and the protection point of…

Jiang, Zihao; Shi, Jiarong; Liu, Zhiying; Gong, Lei – Research Evaluation, 2022
The technological innovation of wind power is crucial to energy security and energy structure transformation. The Chinese government has been committed to improving the innovation of the wind power industry for decades. Although academic researchers and wind power policymakers have been widely concerned about the absolute score of innovation…

Pouw, Wim; Dingemanse, Mark; Motamedi, Yasamin; Özyürek, Asli – Cognitive Science, 2021
Silent gestures consist of complex multi-articulatory movements but are now primarily studied through categorical coding of the referential gesture content. The relation of categorical linguistic content with continuous kinematics is therefore poorly understood. Here, we reanalyzed the video data from a gestural evolution experiment (Motamedi,…

Moon, Austin; Zhao, Jiaying; Peters, Megan A. K.; Wu, Rachel – Cognitive Research: Principles and Implications, 2022
Two aspects of real-world visual search are typically studied in parallel: category knowledge (e.g., searching for food) and visual patterns (e.g., predicting an upcoming street sign from prior street signs). Previous visual search studies have shown that prior category knowledge hinders search when targets and distractors are from the same…

Gull, Shamaila; Idrees, Hassan – European Journal of Training and Development, 2022
Purpose: This paper aims to highlight the importance of implementing green training as a part of green management practices in organizational operations by building the arguments through the lens of Ability-Motivation-Opportunity (AMO) theory. In this regard, the mediating impact of green competencies on the association between green training and…

Dambha, Tasneem; Swanepoel, De Wet; Mahomed-Asmail, Faheema; De Sousa, Karina C.; Graham, Marien A.; Smits, Cas – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2022
Purpose: This study compared the test characteristics, test-retest reliability, and test efficiency of three novel digits-in-noise (DIN) test procedures to a conventional antiphasic 23-trial adaptive DIN (D23). Method: One hundred twenty participants with an average age of 42 years (SD = 19) were included. Participants were tested and retested…

Tran, Phung Phi; Kuo, Kuo-Cheng; Lu, Wen-Min; Kweh, Qian Long – Asia Pacific Education Review, 2020
Assessing university resource allocation or misallocation is necessary to understand its impact on research and teaching productivity. To achieve this insight, this study conducts a two-stage data envelopment analysis to judge the "teaching and research efficiency" and "revenue efficiency" of 61 universities in Vietnam. We…

Tran, Carolyn-Thi Thanh Dung – Empirical Research in Vocational Education and Training, 2021
The vocational education and training (VET) sector plays a crucial role in Australia's education system. Associated closely between the VET provision and industry, VET training quality is continually at the heart of debates in the process of implementing the Australian VET reform agenda. In response of key themes of this reform process,…
