Amodeo, Luiza B.; Emslie, Julia Rosa – 1985
Mathematics anxiety and competence of 57 Anglo and Hispanic pre-service teachers were measured before and after a 30-hour workshop using the training program EQUALS. Students were divided into three groups: elementary, secondary, and library media. Students in the library media class served as the control group; the other two groups were the…

Egghe, L. – Journal of the American Society for Information Science, 1987
Pratt's measure C on the class concentration of bibliometric distributions is calculated and interpreted for the laws of Zipf, Mandelbrot, and Lotka and geometric distribution, and comparisons are made of the results. An explicit mathematical formula which unifies disparate theories is derived and tested. (Author/CLB)

Fensham, Peter J. – Research in Science Education, 1995
The Third International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) endeavored to achieve a balance between student learning of school science in a competitive sense and the variety of science learnings that contemporary curricula for science expect. The impact of science-technology-society (STS) on science curricula is used to explore these tensions in…

Travers, Kenneth J.; Westbury, Ian – 1989
Between 1980 and 1982, the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA) Second International Mathematics Study (SIMS) collected data on mathematics curricula, teaching practices, and achievement from samples of students, teachers, and schools in 18 countries. This material is a technical supplement describing the…

Halls, W. D., Ed. – 1990
The global status of comparative education from the 1960s to the present is presented in three parts. Part 1 comprises a general review of the background to seven regional studies. The review provides a picture of the overall historical development; the modifications in the concept of comparative education that have occurred; the general…

O'Shea, Thomas – 1986
One of the most ambitious attempts to assess students' understanding of mathematics was carried out in England between 1974 and 1979. The results of this study indicate that there is a need in an overall assessment program to evaluate students' algebraic understanding as well as to measure their achievement in algebraic manipulations and problem…

Beasley, Kenneth L. – SRA Journal of the Society of Research Administrators, 1992
Three major professional associations for research administrators (National Conference on the Administration of Research, National Council of University Research Administrators, and Society of Research Administrators) are described and compared in terms of their objectives, group membership, and activities. The three are seen to serve different…

Stallings, Jane; And Others – Elementary School Journal, 1986
Evaluates the effect of a comprehensive teacher training program in Instructional Theory into Practice (ITIP) on student achievement. Reports findings of two phases of a four-phase Follow-Through study. Achievement test scores indicate that students in the project made significant gains in reading and mathematics. (DR)

Hess, Robert D.; McGarvey, Linda J. – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 1987
A study of the effects of microcomputer use in classrooms and homes on the growth of school-readiness skills of kindergartners used pre- and posttested experimental and control groups to assess reading readiness, mathematics readiness, Piagetian operations, and keyboard knowledge. Teacher implementation strategies and techniques used by nonreaders…

Prade, Henri; Testemale, Claudette – Journal of the American Society for Information Science, 1987
Compares and expands upon two approaches to dealing with fuzzy relational databases. The proposed similarity measure is based on a fuzzy Hausdorff distance and estimates the mismatch between two possibility distributions using a reduction process. The consequences of the reduction process on query evaluation are studied. (Author/EM)

Lean, Glendon A.; And Others – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 1990
Investigated were Australian and Papua New Guinean elementary school children's strategies and errors on arithmetic word problems. Reports that (1) the two samples showed similar strategies and similar errors and (2) the main variable determining difficulty was the semantic structure of the questions. (YP)

Salton, G.; And Others – Journal of the American Society for Information Science, 1985
In this study, automatic feedback techniques are applied to Boolean query statements in online information retrieval to generate improved query statements based on information contained in previously retrieved documents. Feedback operations are carried out using conventional Boolean logic and extended logic. Experimental output is included to…

Fryser, Benjamin S.; Stirling, Keith H. – Journal of the American Society for Information Science, 1984
Library patrons evaluated two versions of a bibliographic record displayed on cathode ray tube terminal, one representing Library of Congress (LC) format, the other, one of 15 format variations. Patrons generally preferred side heading label and underlining to LC forms, and upper and lower case letters to lower case only. (EJS)

Frick, Theodore W. – 1986
The sequential probability ratio test (SPRT), developed by Abraham Wald, is one statistical model available for making mastery decisions during computer-based criterion referenced tests. The predictive validity of the SPRT was empirically investigated with two different and relatively large item pools with heterogeneous item parameters. Graduate…

Beeson, Betty Spillers; Williams, R. Ann – Journal of the American Society for Information Science, 1985
Presents results of study of 32 children (under five and over five) enrolled in preschool program in midwestern university which investigated when children should be introduced to computers and whether or not computer is perceived as sex-stereotyped activity by young children. Background, procedures, and results are discussed. Twenty-one sources…
