Kwon, Oh Nam; Allen, Karen; Rasmussen, Chris – School Science and Mathematics, 2005
This study investigates students' retention of mathematical knowledge and skills in two differential equations classes. Posttests and delayed posttests after 1 year were administered to students in inquiry-oriented and traditional classes. The results show that students in the inquiry-oriented class retained conceptual knowledge, as seen by their…

Cho, Jeung-Ryeul; McBride-Chang, Catherine; Park, Soon-Gil – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2008
A large battery of reading related skills were orally administered to 111 4-year old and 118 5-year old Korean kindergartners, who were also tested on reading of regular and irregular Korean Hangul words. In regression equations, speeded naming was uniquely associated with reading of both regular and irregular words. In contrast, only the three…
