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…

Kelley, Matthew R.; Chapman-Orr, Elizabeth K.; Calkins, Susanna; Lemke, Robert J. – Teaching of Psychology, 2019
The present study explored the generation and retrieval practice effects within a college classroom using a free, online tool called PeerWise (PW). PW allows students to create their own multiple-choice questions, share them with peers, and answer the shared questions written by their peers. Forty students from two sections of an upper level…

Bakare, Jimoh; Orji, Chibueze Tobias – Education and Information Technologies, 2019
Some of the factors that influence students' academic achievement, and retention of learning include teacher's mode of teaching, his/her experiences and personality, workload, ability to make use of the available resource materials for teaching and learning. However, literature and some researchers have made it known that adopting students' driven…

Wunische, Adam – Journal of Political Science Education, 2019
Active learning techniques are being use with increasing frequency in the classroom and more time is being dedicated to designing and implementing them. However, the literature still suffers from a lack of rigorous empirical methods to test the effects of simulations. Most of the claimed benefits of utilizing simulations, and other active learning…

Ito, Kinji; Hilliker, Shannon M. – Research-publishing.net, 2019
Acquiring and retaining vocabulary knowledge are two of the most important aspects of second language (L2) learning. Some scholars (e.g. Hedrick, Harmom, & Linerode, 2004; Nation, 1999; Stone & Urquhart, 2008) advocate that we should re-think and explore in depth the importance of vocabulary. According to Wilkins (1972), "while…

Méndez-Carbajo, Diego; Wolla, Scott A. – American Journal of Distance Education, 2019
This article studies the differences in student learning outcomes associated with changes in the format of online learning resources. We compare completion rates and degrees of student achievement across several economic education learning modules produced by the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis. Initially designed as a long-form online learning…

Okyar, Hatice; Çakir, Abdulhamit – Journal of Language and Linguistic Studies, 2019
This study investigated whether encountering the target language words in variety of reading texts would have positive effects on vocabulary development or not. The participants of the study were 55 EFL learners from a state university in Turkey, and two classes were randomly assigned to a control (n=27) or an experimental (n=28) group. 58 English…

Fuchsova, Maria; Korenova, Lilla – European Journal of Contemporary Education, 2019
New technologies with a modern method of teaching must be implemented in university studies, and an important part is teacher training study. These technologies make study more attractive for students and bring greater motivation to an understanding of notions. The main focus of this study is visualisation in science and engineering education…

Beukes, Vernita – Computer Assisted Language Learning, 2019
The research discussed in this article is specifically aimed at non-Afrikaans-speaking international students served by the Language Centre at Stellenbosch University. As a result of students who would like to become proficient in Afrikaans during their stay in South Africa, many of them choose the course "Beginner Afrikaans Vlak 1"…

Elekaei, Atefeh; Tabrizi, Hossein Heidari; Chalak, Azizeh – Turkish Online Journal of Distance Education, 2019
Distance education is a development in teaching and learning. Learners work and learn on their own at a distance from teachers and instructors with a degree of independence. The most important problem confronted by EFL learners is that they do not have enough time to be present in classes and they want to be taught through distance language…

Leonard, Laurence B.; Karpicke, Jeffrey; Deevy, Patricia; Weber, Christine; Christ, Sharon; Haebig, Eileen; Souto, Sofía; Kueser, Justin B.; Krok, Windi – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2019
Purpose: Scholars have long noted that retention improves significantly when learners frequently test themselves on the new material rather than engage in continuous study with no intermittent testing. In this study, we apply the notion of repeated testing or retrieval to the process of word learning in preschool-age children with and without…

Purpose: Retrieval practice has been found to be a powerful strategy to enhance long-term retention of new information; however, the utility of retrieval practice when teaching young children new words is largely unknown, and even less is known for young children with language impairments. The current study examined the effect of 2 different…

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…
