Rambo-Hernandez, Karen E.; Atadero, Rebecca A.; Balgopal, Meena – Educational Psychology, 2017
This study examined the impact of incorporating group design projects into a second-year engineering class on achievement goal orientations and two academic outcomes: concept inventory and final exam scores. In this study, two sections were taught using lecture format, but one section also completed three group design projects as part of their…

Sasmaz Ören, Fatma – International Online Journal of Education and Teaching, 2019
The Instructional Group Activities Design (IGAD) refers to activities which aim to improve professional development and learning skills, in which a learning-centered teaching process is adopted and students study in small groups. The study aimed to both introduce the IGAD and determine pre-service science teachers' opinions on IGAs that were…

Mai, Nu Nu; Takahashi, Yoshi; Oo, Mon Mon – Education Sciences, 2020
How to enhance the transfer of training remains an important question, and to some extent, post-training interventions can provide an answer. The purpose of this study was to validate inconclusive findings on the effectiveness of two post-training transfer interventions. This study used Solomon four-group design to filter out the effects of…

Jackson, Jeffrey B.; Steward, Sarah R.; Roper, Susanne Olsen; Muruthi, Bertranna A. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2018
The purpose of this study was to interview parents of children with severe or profound intellectual and developmental disabilities to determine the perceived value of support groups and identify recommendations for support group design based on their experiences and feedback. Despite varied experiences with support groups, most parents indicated…

Liu, Chunyan; Kolen, Michael J. – Journal of Educational Measurement, 2018
Smoothing techniques are designed to improve the accuracy of equating functions. The main purpose of this study is to compare seven model selection strategies for choosing the smoothing parameter (C) for polynomial loglinear presmoothing and one procedure for model selection in cubic spline postsmoothing for mixed-format pseudo tests under the…

Atadero, Rebecca A.; Rambo-Hernandez, Karen E.; Balgopal, Meena M. – Journal of Engineering Education, 2015
Background: Engineering programs strive to retain students and prepare them for engineering careers. Introducing group design projects into courses may help keep students interested while also improving their learning outcomes. Purpose/Hypothesis: This study measures differences in student content knowledge and intention to persist in engineering…

Choi, Jiwon – ProQuest LLC, 2019
For equating tests that measure several distinct proficiencies, procedures that reflect the multidimensional structure of the data are needed. Although there exist a few equating procedures developed under the multidimensional item response theory (MIRT) framework, there is a need for further research in this area. Therefore, the primary…

Guo, Hongwen; Puhan, Gautam – Journal of Educational Measurement, 2014
In this article, we introduce a section preequating (SPE) method (linear and nonlinear) under the randomly equivalent groups design. In this equating design, sections of Test X (a future new form) and another existing Test Y (an old form already on scale) are administered. The sections of Test X are equated to Test Y, after adjusting for the…

Zientek, Linda; Nimon, Kim; Hammack-Brown, Bryn – European Journal of Training and Development, 2016
Purpose: Among the gold standards in human resource development (HRD) research are studies that test theoretically developed hypotheses and use experimental designs. A somewhat typical experimental design would involve collecting pretest and posttest data on individuals assigned to a control or experimental group. Data from such a design that…

Hunter, Sally B.; Moran, Hayley B.; Mullican, K. Nicole; Connor, Lisa A. – Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, 2019
The purpose of this study was to investigate whether college students' attitudes toward group work could be influenced by thoughtful group project design. Undergraduate students (N = 123) in a lifespan human development course were assigned to groups and asked to create a smartphone app for a specific life stage. The authors utilized a convergent…

Ryan, Katherine E.; Gandha, Tysza; Culbertson, Michael J.; Carlson, Crystal – American Journal of Evaluation, 2014
In evaluation and applied social research, focus groups may be used to gather different kinds of evidence (e.g., opinion, tacit knowledge). In this article, we argue that making focus group design choices explicitly in relation to the type of evidence required would enhance the empirical value and rigor associated with focus group utilization. We…

Page, Nate; Beecher, Mark E.; Griner, Derek; Smith, Timothy B.; Jackson, Aaron P.; Hobbs, Klint; Kirchhoefer, Jessica – Journal of College Student Psychotherapy, 2019
A multisite qualitative study investigated the experiences of six group leaders and 10 group members who participated in seven different university counseling center international student support groups. Analyses of interview data using hermeneutic interpretation resulted in nine major themes and 10 subthemes organized into four sections: (a)…

Arce-Ferrer, Alvaro J.; Bulut, Okan – Journal of Experimental Education, 2019
This study investigated the performance of four widely used data-collection designs in detecting test-mode effects (i.e., computer-based versus paper-based testing). The experimental conditions included four data-collection designs, two test-administration modes, and the availability of an anchor assessment. The test-level and item-level results…
