Lantz, Catherine; Dempsey, Paula R. – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2019
Results from focus groups with 23 second- and third-year biology students revealed gradual gains in information literacy (IL) abilities and dispositions needed for them to join the community of scientific practice as laid out in the ACRL "Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education." Students were consumers of information and…

Yildirim, Gurkan; Yildirim, Serkan; Dolgunsoz, Emrah – World Journal on Educational Technology: Current Issues, 2019
Virtual reality (VR) as computer-mediated 3-D environments including real-life situations presented via different tools in which users can interact effectively with visuals. This study is significant as it primarily aimed to investigate effects of VR on retention by comparing it with traditional 2-D videos. The main aim of this study is to compare…

Newton, Genevieve; Rajakaruna, Rebecca; Kulak, Verena; Albabish, William; Gilley, Brett H.; Ritchie, Kerry – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2019
Two-stage collaborative testing is an assessment strategy that involves students initially writing a test individually and then immediately afterward writing the same (or similar) test again in groups. Current evidence shows that two-stage testing improves performance on multiple-choice tests as well as short-term retention of material, but little…

Cushen, Patrick J.; Hackathorn, Jana; Vázquez Brown, Maria D.; Rife, Sean C.; Joyce, Amanda W.; Smith, Eric D.; Bordieri, Michael J.; Anderson, Paul W.; Karlsson, Marie E.; Daniels, Jordan – Teaching of Psychology, 2019
Students frequently request concept-list study guides prior to exams, but the benefits of instructors providing such resources are unclear. Research on memory and comprehension has suggested that some challenges in learning are associated with benefits to performance. In the context of an introductory psychology course, a study was conducted to…

Gagnon, Mathieu; Cormier, Stéphanie – Canadian Journal of School Psychology, 2019
Much evidence suggests that long-term retention can be maximized by practicing the recall of information and spreading out one's learning over time. Nevertheless, previous surveys have shown that undergraduates often ignore the benefits of such strategies and engage in less efficient techniques such as repetitive reading and massed studying. To…

Yang, Chunliang; Chew, Siew-Jong; Sun, Bukuan; Shanks, David R. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2019
Interim testing of studied information, compared with restudying or no treatment, facilitates subsequent learning and retention of new information--"the forward testing effect." Previous research exploring this effect has shown that interim testing of studied information from a given domain enhances subsequent learning and retention of…

Qarabash, Haneen; Heslop, Philip; Kharrufa, Ahmed; Balaam, Madeline; Devlin, Marie – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
Collaborative learning in class-based teaching presents a challenge for a tutor to ensure every group and individual student has the best learning experience. We present Group Tagging, a web application that supports reflection on collaborative, group-based classroom activities. Group Tagging provides students with an opportunity to record…

Keus, Kelly; Grunwald, Jamie; Haave, Neil – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2019
Midterm exams are a multi-use tool, providing evaluation of students for professors but also acting as a learning tool for students. Midterms may improve learning outcomes by contributing to the testing effect: the phenomenon in which retrieval of learned material (i.e., testing) produces improvements in long-term retention beyond those produced…

Fiorella, Logan; Stull, Andrew T.; Kuhlmann, Shelbi; Mayer, Richard E. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2019
This study tested 3 instructor presence features in learning from video lectures: dynamic drawings, eye contact with the camera, and instructor visibility. In 2 experiments, college students watched a video lecture about the human kidney, which consisted of a series of drawings and a spoken explanation from the instructor, and then took a written…

Fairfax, Emily; Brown, Megan R. M. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2019
People with disabilities are chronically underrepresented in many geoscience departments across the country. There are a number of proposed reasons why this under-representation persists, one of which is lack of instructor training in designing accessible curriculum and making high-quality accommodations. This not only puts students with…

Nairne, James S.; Coverdale, Michelle E.; Pandeirada, Josefa N. S. – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2019
Four experiments investigated the mnemonic effects of generating survival situations. People were given target words and asked to generate survival situations involving that stimulus (e.g., DOOR: "I'm in a house that's on fire, and I can escape through the door"). No constraints were placed on the generation process, other than that it…

Li, Wenjing; Wang, Fuxing; Mayer, Richard E.; Liu, Huashan – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2019
Previous studies have shown that students learn better from an online lesson when a gesturing pedagogical agent is added (Mayer & DaPra, 2012; Wang, Li, Mayer, & Liu, 2018). The goal of this study is to pinpoint which aspect of a gesturing pedagogical agent causes an improvement in learning from an online lesson. College students learned…

Wang, Fuxing; Li, Wenjing; Mayer, Richard E.; Liu, Huashan – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2018
The goal of the present study is to determine how to incorporate social cues such as gesturing in animated pedagogical agents (PAs) for online multimedia lessons in ways that promote student learning. In 3 experiments, college students learned about synaptic transmission from a multimedia narrated presentation while their eye movements were…

Driscoll, Dana Lynn; Jin, Daewoo – Across the Disciplines, 2018
This article draws upon Bergmann and Zepernick's (2007) metaphor of the box under the bed to investigate the relationship between students' epistemologies and their learning transfer in diverse contexts over undergraduate years. We present a systemic analysis of 13 students' interviews and writing samples over a five-year period, through which we…

Racsmány, Mihály; Szollosi, Ágnes; Bencze, Dorottya – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2018
The "testing effect" refers to the striking phenomenon that repeated retrieval practice is one of the most effective learning strategies, and certainly more advantageous for long-term learning, than additional restudying of the same information. How retrieval can boost the retention of memories is still without unanimous explanation. In…
