Pramathevan, G. Sundari; Fraser, Barry J. – Learning Environments Research, 2020
Because there has been very little past research into gifted students' science learning environments, especially in Singapore, we selected from four established questionnaires six learning environment scales that are consistent with Van Tassel-Baska and Stambaugh's guidelines for gifted education. These scales were modified slightly to enhance…

Szlyk, Hannah Selene – Learning Environments Research, 2018
At-risk behaviours, including substance abuse, suicidal ideation and delinquency, are prevalent amongst teenage youth in high-school settings. Focusing on the academic and emotional needs of their students encourages teachers to have thoughtful interactions and be continually aware of the problems of their students. Evidence-based interventions,…

Hsu, Pei-Ling; Espinoza, Penelope – Learning Environments Research, 2018
Working with scientists has been suggested as an effective way for high-school students to learn authentic science. However, little research has involved students' perceptions of science learning environments in a university internship. This study drew on the theoretical framework of community of practice with cogenerative dialogues to design an…

Aldridge, Jill M.; McChesney, Katrina; Afari, Ernest – Learning Environments Research, 2018
Given that schools are, potentially, powerful sites for influencing adolescent behaviour, it is important that there is greater understanding of the psychosocial aspects of the school climate that can be leveraged for this purpose. The research reported in this article used structural equation modelling (with data from a sample of 6120 students at…

Rogers, Maria A.; Hickey, Andrea Jane; Wiener, Judith; Heath, Nancy; Noble, Rick – Learning Environments Research, 2018
Parental involvement in children's learning has been found to influence academic success. However, very few tools exist for measuring parental involvement, particularly ones that target adolescents' self-report. The present study assessed the factor structure, reliability and convergent validity of a new scale to assess adolescents' perceptions of…

Zandvliet, David; Broekhuizen, Avril – Learning Environments Research, 2017
The study of learning environments involves describing educational contexts and identifying empirical relationships among subject matter (curriculum), teaching practices and other environmental variables. In recent years, this has become a growing field of academic inquiry within elementary, secondary and post-secondary research. Investigations of…

Grace, Lori – Learning Environments Research, 2017
A mixed-methods study was undertaken with 118 biology students in two urban high schools. A Student-Centered Adaptable Learning Environment (SCALE) was created to improve engagement from affective and cognitive perspectives using choice, creativity and technological allowances. Results demonstrated that fast and slow learners are generally…

Back, Lindsey T.; Polk, Elizabeth; Keys, Christopher B.; McMahon, Susan D. – Learning Environments Research, 2016
Urban learning environments pose distinct instructional challenges for teachers and administrators, and can lead to lower achievement compared to suburban or rural schools. Today's educational climate increasingly emphasises a need for positive academic outcomes, often measured by standardised tests, on which student educational opportunities,…

Hillman, Susan J.; Zeeman, Stephan I.; Tilburg, Charles E.; List, Henrietta E. – Learning Environments Research, 2016
The number of students in the United States choosing science, technology, engineering or mathematics careers is declining at a time when demand for these occupations is rapidly increasing. Numerous efforts have been undertaken to reverse this trend, yet results are uncertain. One's attitude is key to many choices one makes, and this includes, for…

Collimore, Lisa-Marie; Paré, Dwayne E.; Joordens, Steve – Learning Environments Research, 2015
Middle- and high-school students' attitudes towards online peer-assessment were described and examined in this study. One hundred and eighty-four (184) students answered a 16-item questionnaire about their experiences with an online peer-assessment tool called peerScholar.

Davis, Heather A.; Chang, Mei-Lin; Andrzejewski, Carey E.; Poirier, Ryan R. – Learning Environments Research, 2014
The purpose of this study was to examine changes in students' relational engagement across the transition to high school in three schools reformed to improve the quality of student-teacher relationships. In order to analyze this data we employed latent growth curve (LGC) modeling techniques (n = 637). We ran three LGC models on three…
