Pearl, Dennis K.; Lesser, Lawrence M. – Teaching Statistics: An International Journal for Teachers, 2023
Concepts of experimentation and measurement are explored using statistics educational fun items and illustrated by sharing our process in conducting an experiment on cartoon captions.

Foresto, Emiliano; Nievas, Fiorela; Giordano, Walter; Bogino, Pablo – Journal of Biological Education, 2022
Despite the growing importance of agricultural microbiology at the applied, productive and ecological levels, undergraduate degrees in Agronomy generally do not feature much microbiological experimentation. To address this deficiency, we have designed an experimental programme that evaluates the potential of plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria…

Sidsel Lond Grosen; Kasper Edwards – Journal of Workplace Learning, 2024
Purpose: The aim of this paper is to explore how the involvement of workplace teams in experimenting with changes in their work practices through short, time-boxed, experiments (STBEs) can support organizational learning. It is explored how staffs' experiences with experimental practices give rise to shared knowledge and how this is supported by…

Kampfmann, Teresa; Bernert, Philip; Lang, Daniel J. – Research Evaluation, 2023
The number of real-world laboratories (RwLs) as research settings to address sustainability problems by using collaborative and experimental approaches has been growing steadily over the past years. RwLs are widely considered promising settings for the production of action-orientated knowledge in order to contribute solving wicked real-world…

Li, Aini; Roberts, Gareth – Cognitive Science, 2023
We investigated the emergence of sociolinguistic indexicality using an artificial-language-learning paradigm. Sociolinguistic indexicality involves the association of linguistic variants with nonlinguistic social or contextual features. Any linguistic variant can acquire "constellations" of such indexical meanings, though they also…

Amenda N. Chow; Peter D. Harrington; Fok-Shuen Leung – Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications, 2024
Physical experiments in classrooms have many benefits for student learning, including increased student interest, participation and knowledge retention. While experiments are common in engineering and physics classes, they are seldom used in first-year calculus, where the focus is on solving problems analytically and, occasionally, numerically. In…

Riesthuis, Paul; Otgaar, Henry; Hope, Lorraine; Mangiulli, Ivan – Applied Cognitive Psychology, 2021
The proposed experiment will examine the effect of deceptive behavior on memory. Participants will be assigned to a "strong-incentive to cheat" or "weak-incentive to cheat" condition and play the adapted Sequential Dyadic Die-Rolling paradigm. Specifically, Player A (computer; participants think it is another participant)…

Ono, Mikoto; Hirose, Nobuyuki; Mori, Shuji – Cognitive Research: Principles and Implications, 2022
Introduction: Past studies have provided evidence that the effects of tactile stimulation on binocular rivalry are mediated by primitive features (orientation and spatial frequency) common in vision and touch. In this study, we examined whether such effects on binocular rivalry can be obtained through the roughness of naturalistic objects. In…

Barr, Abigail; Miller, Luis; Ubeda, Paloma – Sociological Methods & Research, 2023
We present a set of studies the objective of which was to test the robustness of the acknowledgment of earned entitlement effect across different experimental modes and populations. We present three sets of results. The first is derived from a between-subject analysis of two independent, but comparable samples of nonstudent adults. One sample…

Shanafelt, Amy; Sadeghzadeh, Claire; Chapman, Leah; De Marco, Molly; Harnack, Lisa; Gust, Susan; Jackson, Melvin; Caspi, Caitlin – Field Methods, 2021
Natural experiments are often used for answering research questions in which randomization is implausible. Effective recruitment strategies are well documented for observational cohort studies and clinical trials, unlike recruitment methods for time-sensitive natural experiments. In this time-sensitive study of the impact of a minimum wage policy,…

Alexia Micallef; Philip M. Newton – Teaching of Psychology, 2024
Background: Prior research suggests that the teaching of abstract concepts can be enhanced by the use of concrete examples, but there are few controlled studies. Objective: To replicate key findings from experiment one from Rawson et al. (2015). Method: Experiment participants studied definitions of abstract concepts from psychology, either with…

Lindsay Michelle Schofield – Policy Futures in Education, 2024
In recent years, the theoretical lens of new materialism(s) and surge in feminist thinking has opened up new ways of understanding the complexities of motherhood, babyhood and early childhood. This surge in post-qualitative and feminist inquiry towards the troubling of dominant early childhood abstractions and norms, as well as resistance to…

van der Linden, Wim J. – Journal of Educational and Behavioral Statistics, 2022
The current literature on test equating generally defines it as the process necessary to obtain score comparability between different test forms. The definition is in contrast with Lord's foundational paper which viewed equating as the process required to obtain comparability of measurement scale between forms. The distinction between the notions…

Guo, Youmeng; Hu, Nan; Liu, Jinmei; Yin, Yaling; Ding, Youye; An, Yaqi – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2022
Contribution: The scheme for virtual emulation experiments based on discrete logic which appropriately lowers students' cognitive burden and possesses manipulatable interactive logic in tune with real experiments is put forward. The relationship between students' experiential learning and the influence of cognitive burden is also discussed.…

Torcal-Milla, Francisco Jose – Physics Education, 2022
Diffraction refers to a kind of optical phenomena which occurs when light approaches an element (object or aperture) whose features are in the range of the illuminating wavelength (small apertures, sharp edges). It can be explained by means of the undulatory nature of light or also geometrically by using simple ray optics. Diffraction phenomena…
