Knotek, Steve E.; Fleming, Phylicia; Wright Thompson, Loren; Fornaris Rouch, Erica; Senior, Melissa; Martinez, Robert – Journal of Educational and Psychological Consultation, 2019
Intervention research is replete with examples of finely crafted innovations showing initial efficacy in tightly controlled experimental contexts only to fail when they are implemented in typical use settings. While the reasons for such failures are broad, implementation science shows a targeted and judicious use of appropriate competency drivers,…

Pullen, Reyne; Thickett, Stuart C.; Bissember, Alex C. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2018
In chemistry curricula, both the role of the laboratory program and the method of assessment used are subject to scrutiny and debate. The ability to identify clearly defined competencies for the chemistry laboratory program is crucial, given the numerous other disciplines that rely on foundation-level chemistry knowledge and practical skills. In…

Sánchez Carracedo, Fermín; Soler, Antonia; Martín, Carme; López, David; Ageno, Alicia; Cabré, Jose; Garcia, Jordi; Aranda, Joan; Gibert, Karina – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2018
Curricula designed in the context of the European Higher Education Area need to be based on both domain-specific and professional competencies. Whereas universities have had extensive experience in developing students' domain-specific competencies, fostering professional competencies poses a new challenge we need to face. This paper presents a…

Kizito, Rita; Munyakazi, Justin; Basuayi, Clement – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2016
In spite of sustained efforts tertiary institutions implement to try and improve student academic performance, the number of students succeeding in first-year mathematics courses remains disturbingly low. For most students, the gap between their mathematical capability and the competencies they are expected and need to develop to function…

Cop, Michael; Hatfield, Hunter – New Zealand Journal of Teachers' Work, 2016
Inspired by the 'teaching as inquiry' model, we initiated a focusing inquiry on 2,811 English diagnostic tests that were taken in 2014-2015 by first-year students entering the Health Sciences programme at the University of Otago, a programme for aspiring health professionals. That inquiry aimed to improve the first-year paper taken by students who…

Tularam, Gurudeo Anand; Hulsman, Kees – International Journal for Mathematics Teaching and Learning, 2015
This study focuses on students in first year environmental science degree programs, where traditionally mathematical emphasis has been much less than within the strict science or math majors. The importance now placed on applied mathematics, however, means that students need to gain more conceptual and quantitative knowledge of mathematics in not…
