Stafford, Sarah – Journal of Policy Analysis and Management, 2012
The role of compliance assistance in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's overall enforcement strategy has been quite variable over the past decade and a half, increasing in prominence under the Bush administration and now slated for significantly reduced funding under the Obama administration. While theoretical models and anecdotal evidence…

Morsanyi, Kinga; Handley, Simon J.; Serpell, Sylvie – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2013
Background: The equiprobability bias is a tendency for individuals to think of probabilistic events as "equiprobable" by nature, and to judge outcomes that occur with different probabilities as equally likely. The equiprobability bias has been repeatedly found to be related to formal education in statistics, and it is claimed to be based…

Stolz, Steven A.; Pill, Shane – Sport, Education and Society, 2016
This paper analyses two pedagogical case studies (PCS) from a multidisciplinary perspective to highlight the problems of theoretical knowledge in tertiary physical education teacher education (PETE) programmes, school-based physical education (PE) practice and continuous professional learning (CPL) in PE. We argue that a critical view of tertiary…

Harbusch, Karin; Hausdörfer, Annette – Research-publishing.net, 2016
COMPASS is an e-learning system that can visualize grammar errors during sentence production in German as a first or second language. Via drag-and-drop dialogues, it allows users to freely select word forms from a lexicon and to combine them into phrases and sentences. The system's core component is a natural-language generator that, for every new…

Filatova, Olga – TESOL Journal, 2016
Word cloud generating applications were originally designed to add visual attractiveness to posters, websites, slide show presentations, and the like. They can also be an effective tool in reading and writing classes in English as a second language (ESL) for all levels of English proficiency. They can reduce reading time and help to improve…

Wyatt, Mark; Dikilitas, Kenan – Educational Action Research, 2016
While it is generally recognized that teacher research can be a very beneficial form of continuing professional development (CPD), there is still relatively limited research available on the impact this activity has on teachers' self-efficacy beliefs, which are of interest to educational psychologists because, while being open to constant change,…

Kraftmakher, Yaakov – Physics Education, 2011
The capacitance versus voltage relationship (the "C-V" characteristic) of a varicap is determined, and the device is used for tuning an "LC" circuit and for building a voltage-controlled oscillator. With a data-acquisition system, the "C-V" characteristic can be demonstrated in a short time. The necessary equipment includes a function generator,…

Konstantinidis, Angelos; Theodostadou, Dimitra; Pappos, Christos – Turkish Online Journal of Distance Education, 2013
Web 2.0 tools provide enormous opportunities for teaching and learning, yet their application in education is still underdeveloped. What is more, it is no longer possible for teachers to ignore such a technological advance, while they are expected to provide students with opportunities to take control of their learning. However, teachers are still…

Power, Anne – Australian Journal of Music Education, 2013
Service learning in tertiary education is about partnerships between higher education institutions and communities, as co-generators of knowledge. Arts programs in service learning engage what Rendon (2009) calls "sentipensante" (sensing/thinking) pedagogy, in which critical examinations of ways of thinking and doing sit alongside…

Euzébio Batista, Marcelo Henrique; Victória Barbosa, Jorge Luis; da Rosa Tavares, João Elison; Hackenhaar, Jonathan Luis – International Journal of Information and Communication Technology Education, 2013
This article shows the application of Item Response Theory (IRT) for educational evaluation using games. The article proposes a computational model to create user profiles, called Psychometric Profile Generator (PPG). PPG uses the IRT mathematical model for exploring the levels of skills and behaviors in the form of items and/or stimuli. The model…

Caplan, George M. – Physics Teacher, 2009
Utility companies generate three-phase electric power, which consists of three sinusoidal voltages with phase angles of 0 degrees, 120 degrees, and 240 degrees. The ac generators described in most introductory textbooks are single-phase generators, so physics students are not likely to learn about three-phase power. I have developed a simple way…

Aguilar, Horacio Munguia – Physics Education, 2009
An electronic circuit for controlling "RLC" experiments is shown. This arrangement does not employ a function generator, which makes it more suitable when a wide range of "R," "L" and "C" values is required and a relatively high current is involved. This circuit can be used for driven and undriven DC…

Kraftmakher, Yaakov – Physics Education, 2009
Simple measurements of the decay time of cathodoluminescence are described. Cathodoluminescence is used in many devices, including computer monitors, oscilloscopes, radar displays and television tubes. The experimental setup is simple and easy to build. Two oscilloscopes, a function generator, and a fast photodiode are needed for the experiments.…

Volodina, Elena; Borin, Lars – Research-publishing.net, 2012
This paper reports on the ongoing international project "System architecture for ICALL" and the progress made by the Swedish partner. The Swedish team is developing a web-based exercise generator reusing available annotated corpora and lexical resources. Apart from the technical issues like implementation of the user interface and the…

Boitier, V.; Cressault, Y. – European Journal of Physics, 2011
This paper discusses photovoltaic panel systems and reviews their electrical properties and use in several industrial fields. We explain how different photovoltaic panels may be characterized by undergraduate students at university using simple methods to retrieve their electrical properties (power, current and voltage) and compare these values…
