Yanyan Fu – Educational Measurement: Issues and Practice, 2024
The template-based automated item-generation (TAIG) approach that involves template creation, item generation, item selection, field-testing, and evaluation has more steps than the traditional item development method. Consequentially, there is more margin for error in this process, and any template errors can be cascaded to the generated items.…

Prike, Toby; Blackley, Phoebe; Swire-Thompson, Briony; Ecker, Ullrich K. H. – Cognitive Research: Principles and Implications, 2023
Corrections are a frequently used and effective tool for countering misinformation. However, concerns have been raised that corrections may introduce false claims to new audiences when the misinformation is novel. This is because boosting the familiarity of a claim can increase belief in that claim, and thus exposing new audiences to novel…

Rafi Safadi; Nadera Hawa – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2024
Research suggests that troubleshooting activities that require students to reflect on teacher-crafted erroneous examples; i.e., erroneous solutions to problems that correspond to widespread naïve ideas, are beneficial to learning. One possible explanation to these beneficial effects is that troubleshooting activities encourage students to test the…

Brinley N. Zabriskie; Nolan Cole; Jacob Baldauf; Craig Decker – Research Synthesis Methods, 2024
Meta-analyses have become the gold standard for synthesizing evidence from multiple clinical trials, and they are especially useful when outcomes are rare or adverse since individual trials often lack sufficient power to detect a treatment effect. However, when zero events are observed in one or both treatment arms in a trial, commonly used…

Liang, Qianru; de la Torre, Jimmy; Law, Nancy – Journal of Educational and Behavioral Statistics, 2023
To expand the use of cognitive diagnosis models (CDMs) to longitudinal assessments, this study proposes a bias-corrected three-step estimation approach for latent transition CDMs with covariates by integrating a general CDM and a latent transition model. The proposed method can be used to assess changes in attribute mastery status and attribute…

Jeffrey Ehme – PRIMUS, 2024
The Miller-Rabin test is a useful probabilistic method for finding large primes. In this paper, we explain the method in detail and give three variations on this test. These variations were originally developed as student projects to supplement a course in error correcting codes and cryptography.

Simonian, Michael J.; Brand, Denys – Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, 2022
Feedback is an effective strategy for improving performance and consists of multiple characteristics. One characteristic that can influence feedback efficacy is its nature (whether feedback is positive or corrective) and little is known about the conditions under which individuals may prefer corrective over positive feedback. Thus, the purpose of…

Joshua Holden – PRIMUS, 2024
This paper describes Alkaline, a size-reduced version of Kyber, which has recently been announced as a prototype NIST standard for post-quantum public-key cryptography. While not as simple as RSA, I believe that Alkaline can be used in an undergraduate classroom to effectively teach the techniques and principles behind Kyber and post-quantum…

Autry, Kevin S.; Duarte, Shea E. – Applied Cognitive Psychology, 2021
Corrections are not always effective at reducing belief in misinformation. Negated corrections, which state a piece of information is not true, may only be effective at inhibiting information an observer has already encountered. We compared the effectiveness of negated corrections and replacements while manipulating initial exposure to a target…

Teixeira da Silva, Jaime A.; Al-Khatib, Aceil – Research Ethics, 2021
Retractions are on the rise as a result of a surge in post-publication peer review and an emboldened anonymous whistle-blowing movement. Cognizant that their brand may be damaged as a result of not correcting problematic literature, journals and publishers that are loosely considered to be non-"predatory" are trying to contain the deluge…

Han Wan; Hongzhen Luo; Mengying Li; Xiaoyan Luo – IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies, 2024
Automatic program repair (APR) tools are valuable for students to assist them with debugging tasks since program repair captures the code modification to make a buggy program pass the given test-suite. However, the process of manually generating catalogs of code modifications is intricate and time-consuming. This article proposes contextual error…

Horiguchi, Tomoya; Hirashima, Tsukasa; Hayashi, Yusuke – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2023
Background: In learning mechanics, students often believe that "force is exerted on moving objects." As this misconception called "motion implies a force" (MIF) is difficult to correct, various teaching methods have been proposed, such as showing refutational/explanatory text (Palmer & Flanagan, 1997; Takagaki, 2004),…

Abolfazl Rafiepour; Nooshin Faramarzpour; Mohammad Reza Fadaee – Mathematics Teaching Research Journal, 2023
The present study investigates the effect of the separator lines on the learning of 8th grade students in simplifying algebraic expressions with parenthesis. An experimental study was designed to achieve this goal involving 60 girl students in 8th Grade (13 and 14 years old) randomly selected and assigned to two experimental and control groups.…

Error-monitoring is a crucial cognitive process that enables us to adapt to the constantly changing environment. The anterior cingulate cortex (ACC) plays a vital role in error-monitoring, and its prolonged maturation suggests that it can be influenced by experience-dependent plasticity. To explore this possibility, we collected morphometric…

Kan, Irene P.; Pizzonia, Kendra L.; Drummey, Anna B.; Mikkelsen, Eli J. V. – Cognitive Research: Principles and Implications, 2021
Background: The term "continued influence effect" (CIE) refers to the phenomenon that discredited and obsolete information continues to affect behavior and beliefs. The practical relevance of this work is particularly apparent as we confront fake news everyday. Thus, an important question becomes, how can we mitigate the continued…
