Tennyson, Robert D. – 1980
This study tested the hypothesis that high school students can effectively manage their learning needs in a computer-assisted instructional system when provided on-task advisement of their learning achievement in relation to a given criterion. One hundred and thirty-nine male and female high school students from a 12th grade course in psychology…

Guo, Jian-Peng; Yang, Ling-Yan; Ding, Yi – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2014
Researchers have consistently demonstrated that multiple examples are better than one example in facilitating learning because the comparison evoked by multiple examples supports learning and transfer. However, research outcomes are unclear regarding the effects of example variability and prior knowledge on learning from comparing multiple…

Ciechalski, Joseph C.; Pinkney, James W.; Weaver, Florence S. – 2002
This paper illustrates the use of the McNemar Test, using a hypothetical problem. The McNemar Test is a nonparametric statistical test that is a type of chi square test using dependent, rather than independent, samples to assess before-after designs in which each subject is used as his or her own control. Results of the McNemar test make it…

Booth, Julie L.; Cooper, Laura A.; Donovan, M. Suzanne; Huyghe, Alexandra; Koedinger, Kenneth R.; Paré-Blagoev, E. Juliana – Journal of Education for Students Placed at Risk, 2015
Superintendents from districts in the Minority Student Achievement Network (MSAN) challenged the Strategic Education Research Partnership (SERP) to identify an approach to narrowing the minority student achievement gap in Algebra 1 without isolating minority students for intervention. SERP partnered with 8 MSAN districts and researchers from 3…

Garduno, Alberto O.; And Others – 1984
The purpose of this study was to replicate the Bentti, Golden, and Reigeluth study (1983), which explored the use of nonexamples to teach common errors as an effective strategy in teaching a procedure. A total of 24 undergraduate students enrolled in the Syracuse University Symphonic Band were randomly assigned to an experimental group and a…

Kromrey, Jeffrey D.; And Others – 1991
Nineteen secondary school teachers in a mid-sized Florida school district participated in a single-group pretest/posttest design to explore the relationship between essential and higher order teaching skills. Correlations between two sets of teacher performance variables were computed before and after training in teaching for higher order thinking…

Dunwell, Stephen; And Others – 1972
A computer-assisted instructional (CAI) course, WRITE, was used at the Poughkeepsie, New York, Middle School to help 5th through 8th graders with spelling and word usage problems. The course used the Coursewriter III language and an IBM System/360 computer; students received self-paced instructional programs at typewriter terminals. All teaching…

Goolsby, Thomas M., Jr.; Frary, Robert B. – 1969
Two hundred first grade children participated in an experimental program involving innovative curricula and instructional techniques. A pretest-posttest method of instruction, employing sequenced and structured learning activities, enabled each child to progress at an individual rate and was supplemented by a readiness program. Evaluation of the…

Vitalone-Raccaro, Nancy A. – Intervention in School and Clinic, 2017
The national focus on teacher accountability and the resulting emphasis on raising the bar for teacher evaluations challenge teachers of students with learning disabilities (LD) to rethink instructional design and delivery. In response to these challenges, this article introduces a two-part protocol for planning and teaching strategy instruction…

Große, Cornelia S. – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2015
The application of mathematics to real-world problems is moving more and more in the focus of attention of mathematics education; however, many learners experience huge difficulties in relating "pure" mathematics to everyday contents. In order to solve "modeling problems", it is first necessary to find a transition from a…

Flores, Raymond; Inan, Fethi – Journal of Interactive Learning Research, 2014
The purpose of this study was to explore effective ways to design guided practices within a web-based mathematics problem solving tutorial. Specifically, this study examined student learning outcome differences between two support designs (e.g. adaptively faded and fixed). In the adaptively faded design, students were presented with problems in…

Attorps, Iiris; Kellner, Eva – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
The aim of this article is to describe a design and implementation of a school-university action research project about teaching and learning biology and mathematics in primary school. Nine teachers in grades 1 to 6, in collaboration with two researchers, were using content representation (CoRe) in learning study (LS)-inspired cycle as pedagogical…
