Kiliçkaya, Ferit – Online Submission, 2018
Cloze procedure is a technique generally used to assess learners' reading comprehension by deleting words based on a criterion. Learners are then asked to supply the omitted words to complete the sentences as they read the text, guessing the words that may be inserted based on the context. Cloze procedure can also be used to assess, recycle, and…

Kalashnikova, Marina; Escudero, Paola; Kidd, Evan – Developmental Science, 2018
The mutual exclusivity (ME) assumption is proposed to facilitate early word learning by guiding infants to map novel words to novel referents. This study assessed the emergence and use of ME to both disambiguate and retain the meanings of novel words across development in 18-month-old monolingual and bilingual children (Experiment 1; N = 58), and…

Todd, Amber; Romine, William – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2018
Modern genetics is a relatively new domain, but it is increasingly important for students to have a firm grasp on the content, because genetic technologies are becoming more commonplace. In a previous study, we used the Learning Progression-based Assessment of Modern Genetics to assess high school students' knowledge of genetics concepts after an…

Bae, Sarah E.; Richardson, Rick – Learning & Memory, 2018
Recent studies have shown that exposure to a novel environment may stabilize the persistence of weak memories, a phenomenon often attributed to a process referred to as "behavioral tagging." While this phenomenon has been repeatedly demonstrated in adult animals, no studies to date have examined whether it occurs in infant animals, which…

Hatakeyama, Taichi; Sugita, Manami; Yamada, Kazuo; Ichitani, Yukio – Learning & Memory, 2018
Temporal order memory was analyzed using a spontaneous object recognition (SOR) paradigm in rats. In SOR, animals were allowed to explore freely two or five different objects sequentially in the sample phase, and then, two different objects shown in the sample phase were simultaneously presented, and exploration time of object shown earlier…

Marinovic, Vesna; Träuble, Birgit – Developmental Psychology, 2018
We investigated whether witnessing social exclusion influenced memory recall in preschool children. A sample of 81 children (M[subscript age] = 5 years, 4 months) first watched priming videos either depicting social exclusion or not. Subsequently, they participated in two memory tasks, one testing recall of numbers and the other testing recall of…

Bobby, Zachariah; Meiyappan, Kavitha – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2018
Focused self-directed learning is very much essential at present in medical education to catch-up with the increasing information load. Cognitive psychology laboratory studies show that repeated testing of information produces superior retention relative to repeated study. The overall goal of this intervention was to evaluate the effectiveness of…

Koford, Brandon C.; Parkhurst, Gregory – Journal of Education for Business, 2018
The authors perform a classroom experiment to test the effectiveness of discipline-specific case studies on knowledge acquisition and retention in advanced business statistics courses. The results indicate that although students are more engaged in the case studies, overall there is no impact on acquisition or retention of statistics knowledge by…

Husmann, Polly R. – HAPS Educator, 2018
The influence of class size and course length on student academic achievement has been evaluated. However, most of the studies have been done at the primary education level and their influence on study strategies has not previously been assessed. The data for this study were collected via surveys at the beginning and end of a first year medical…

Franklin, Scott V.; Hane, Elizabeth; Kustusch, Mary Bridget; Ptak, Corey; Sayre, Eleanor C. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2018
The authors present a three-pronged approach to developing metacognitive strategies in two targeted populations in STEM--deaf/hard-of-hearing students and (separately) first-generation students--who share similar obstacles in their transition to college.

Garzón, Juan; Bautista, Julián – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2018
Learning and teaching algebra concepts are frequent problems for both students and teachers alike. Students struggle to learn algebra, and teachers struggle to identify the best way to teach algebra. It is recurrent that teachers use instructional methods that promote memorization, and, consequently, the learning process may prove unsatisfactory.…
