Chu, Yen Li; Orsted, Mary; Marquart, Len; Reicks, Marla – Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior, 2012
Objective: To describe how school foodservice personnel use current labeling methods to identify whole-grain products and the influence on purchasing for school meals. Methods: Focus groups explored labeling methods to identify whole-grain products and barriers to incorporating whole-grain foods in school meals. Qualitative analysis procedures and…

Ha, Eun-Jeong; Caine-Bish, Natalie – Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior, 2011
Objective: To estimate current consumption of whole grains in college students and determine whether there would be an increase in whole-grain consumption after the students completed an interactive introductory nutrition course focusing on disease prevention. Methods: Eighty college students, 18-24 years old, participated in the study. Grain and…

Rosen, Renee A.; Burgess-Champoux, Teri L.; Marquart, Len; Reicks, Marla M. – Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior, 2012
Objective: Develop, refine, and test psychosocial scales for associations with whole-grain intake. Methods: A cross-sectional survey was conducted in a Minneapolis/St. Paul suburban elementary school with children in fourth through sixth grades (n = 98) and their parents (n = 76). Variables of interest were child whole-grain intake, self-efficacy,…

Wissman, Kathryn T.; Rawson, Katherine A. – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2015
The current research evaluated the extent to which the grain size of recall practice for lengthy text material affects recall during practice and subsequent memory. The "grain size hypothesis" states that a smaller vs. larger grain size will increase retrieval success during practice that in turn will enhance subsequent memory for…

Brennan, Christine; Booth, James R. – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2015
Linguistic knowledge, cognitive ability, and instruction influence how adults acquire a second orthography yet it remains unclear how different forms of instruction influence grain size sensitivity and subsequent decoding skill and speed. Thirty-seven monolingual, literate English-speaking adults were trained on a novel artificial orthography…

O'Brien, Beth A.; Mohamed, Malikka Begum Habib; Yussof, Nurul Taqiah; Ng, Siew Chin – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
Phonological awareness is critical for early reading acquisition across alphabetic as well as non-alphabetic languages. The grain size of phonological awareness varies with oral language structure and written orthography across languages. Phonological awareness' grain size and contribution to reading for simultaneous biliterate children is…

Abugaliyeva, Aigul I.; Morgounov, Alexey I. – International Journal of Environmental and Science Education, 2016
The grain quality of winter wheat varies significantly by cultivars and growing region, not previously differentiated by end-use (baking, confectionery, etc.) in the national breeding programs. In these conditions it is advisable to determine the genetic potential and analyze the actual grain quality. Determining the genetic potential requires the…

Kotsakou, Stamatina; Walters, Cory; Groskopf, Jessica; Tigner, Robert; Banerjee, Simanti – Journal of Extension, 2018
This article describes a novel grain marketing simulation game called "Marketing in a New Era" (MINE) that was developed for use in Extension producer meetings and other educational settings. Key benefits of MINE are that users can personalize the game's marketing simulation environment by incorporating information specific to their…

Clements, Douglas H.; Sarama, Julie – Education Sciences, 2018
Myths about early education abound. Many beliefs people hold about early math have a grain of truth in them, but as a whole are not true--they are largely myths. But the myths persist, and many harm children. In this article, we address ubiquitous math myths that may be negatively affecting many young students. We conclude that avoiding the myths…

Liu, Ran; Stamper, John; Davenport, Jodi – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2018
Temporal analyses are critical to understanding learning processes, yet understudied in education research. Data from different sources are often collected at different grain sizes, which are difficult to integrate. Making sense of data at many levels of analysis, including the most detailed levels, is highly time-consuming. In this paper, we…

Childs, Nicholas B.; Horányi, Mihály; Collette, Andrew – Physics Teacher, 2013
We describe the principles of macroscopic charged particle detection in the laboratory and their connections to concepts taught in the physics classroom. Electrostatic dust accelerator systems, capable of launching charged dust grains at hypervelocities (1-100 km/s), are a critical tool for space exploration. Dust grains in space typically have…

Rosen, Renee A.; Hauge, Denise A.; Arndt, Elizabeth A.; Veal, Mike; Marquart, Len – Journal of Child Nutrition & Management, 2011
Pasta is a popular grain food served as an entree or side dish in both home and away-from-home settings. In schools, pasta is served less frequently than other entrees. Pasta, especially whole-grain pasta, offers an opportunity to incorporate less expensive, nutritious, and versatile dishes into school meals. A need exists to develop whole-grain…

Treutlein, Anke; Schöler, Hermann; Landerl, Karin – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2017
This study investigated whether German learners of English as a foreign language (EFL) acquire additional recoding strategies that they do not need for recoding in the consistent German orthography. Based on the psycholinguistic grain size theory (Ziegler & Goswami, 2005) we expected students with little experience in EFL to use the same…
