Özbas, Serap – International Journal of Environmental and Science Education, 2016
This research, which was tried with 217 high school students, was carried out to determine the perceptions and attitudes related to the usage of bioenergy. The research results showed that the students had the perception that there would be lack of food due to global warming, but bioenergy would prevent the world from global warming. Moreover,…

McConnell, T. Eric – Journal of Extension, 2016
Forest-based production on U.S. farms totaled $653.2 million in 2012, admittedly a small portion of total farm wealth. However, despite the effects of the recent economic downturn, on-farm forest product revenues still approached the gate value of North Carolina timber in 2012, which was $730.6 million. Providing the research-based information,…

Powell, Sarah J. – Australian Association for Research in Education, 2016
This paper contemplates the way children exist, interact and intra-act with their worlds. It seeks to think differently about data and engages with the work of Deleuze, particularly grappling with his conception of 'becoming' and the ways in which children name their worlds and intra-act with natural entities. The paper emerged from conversations…

Dorie, Vincent; Harada, Masataka; Carnegie, Nicole Bohme; Hill, Jennifer – Grantee Submission, 2016
When estimating causal effects, unmeasured confounding and model misspecification are both potential sources of bias. We propose a method to simultaneously address both issues in the form of a semi-parametric sensitivity analysis. In particular, our approach incorporates Bayesian Additive Regression Trees into a two-parameter sensitivity analysis…

Cook, Robert J.; Durning, Steven J. – AERA Online Paper Repository, 2016
In an effort to better align item development to goals of assessing higher-order tasks and decision making, complex decision trees were developed to follow clinical reasoning scripts and used as models on which multiple-choice questions could be built. This approach is compatible with best-practice assessment frameworks like Evidence Centered…

Kuo, Ying-Ying; Luo, Juan; Brielmaier, Jennifer – AERA Online Paper Repository, 2016
This study investigated student learning behaviors in a fully online psychology course in which students controlled their own course content usage. Data collection included students' real usage of the Blackboard course site over three semesters in 2014 and 2015, as well as a course survey at the end of each semester. Data mining techniques, such…

Torkar, Gregor; Gnidovec, Tanja; Tunnicliffe, Sue Dale; Tomažic, Iztok – Journal of Biological Education, 2019
Many children learn about and experience animals in the everyday environment where they live and attend school. One way to obtain information about children's understanding of concepts or phenomena is by using their drawings in combination with written responses or interviews. This study assesses how much Slovenian students 10-15 years old (in…

Abu Saa, Amjed; Al-Emran, Mostafa; Shaalan, Khaled – Technology, Knowledge and Learning, 2019
Predicting the students' performance has become a challenging task due to the increasing amount of data in educational systems. In keeping with this, identifying the factors affecting the students' performance in higher education, especially by using predictive data mining techniques, is still in short supply. This field of research is usually…

Novick, Laura R.; Catley, Kefyn M. – Science Education, 2014
Science is an important domain for investigating students' responses to information that contradicts their prior knowledge. In previous studies of this topic, this information was communicated verbally. The present research used diagrams, specifically trees (cladograms) depicting evolutionary relationships among taxa. Effects of college…

Stier, Sam – Science Scope, 2010
Sampling, very generally, is the process of learning about something by selecting and assessing representative parts of that population or object. In the inquiry activity described here, students learned about sampling techniques as they estimated the number of trees greater than 12 cm dbh (diameter at breast height) in a wooded, discrete area…

Truckenmiller, Adrea J.; Petscher, Yaacov; Gaughan, Linda; Dwyer, Ted – Regional Educational Laboratory Southeast, 2016
District and state education leaders frequently use screening assessments to identify students who are at risk of performing poorly on end-of-year achievement tests. This study examines the use of a universal screening assessment of reading skills for early identification of students at risk of low achievement on nationally normed tests of reading…

Austin, Peter C. – Multivariate Behavioral Research, 2012
Researchers are increasingly using observational or nonrandomized data to estimate causal treatment effects. Essential to the production of high-quality evidence is the ability to reduce or minimize the confounding that frequently occurs in observational studies. When using the potential outcome framework to define causal treatment effects, one…

Buchanan, Sarah; Laviola, Joseph J., Jr. – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2014
We present CSTutor, a sketch-based interface designed to help students understand data structures, specifically Linked Lists, Binary Search Trees, AVL Trees, and Heaps. CSTutor creates an environment that seamlessly combines a user's sketched diagram and code. In each of these data structure modes, the user can naturally sketch a data structure on…

Crimmins, Theresa M.; Weltzin, Jake F.; Rosemartin, Alyssa H.; Surina, Echo M.; Marsh, Lee; Denny, Ellen G. – Natural Sciences Education, 2014
Science projects, which engage non-professional scientists in one or more stages of scientific research, have been gaining popularity; yet maintaining participants' activity level over time remains a challenge. The objective of this study was to evaluate the potential for a short-term, focused campaign to increase participant activity in a…

Snider, Jessi – Children's Literature in Education, 2014
Laurie Halse Anderson's young adult novel "Speak" concerns the rape and subsequent silence of ninth grade protagonist Melinda Sordino. By relying on extensive literary allusions involving trees, rape, silence, and transformation, Anderson creates a young adult problem novel that is both of the moment and timeless in its themes. The…
