Amo, Laura C.; Liao, Ruochen; Frank, Emma; Rao, H. Raghav; Upadhyaya, Shambhu – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2019
Contribution: Intervention effectiveness is shown to vary in its influence on teenagers' outcomes with cybersecurity problem-solving and engagement. In-depth, high-intensity types of intervention may be more effective for female students. Background: Instructional interventions are being developed to address both the critical shortage in…

Ladeji-Osias, Jumoke O.; Partlow, LaDawn E.; Dillon, Edward C. – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2018
Contribution: This paper shows that participating in a year-round program for African-American male middle school students (ages 10-14) can positively impact their attitudes toward STEM, their confidence in problem solving and team work, and their interest in STEM careers, but may not impact the interest in taking STEM classes to the same extent.…

Shim, Jaekwoun; Kwon, Daiyoung; Lee, Wongyu – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2017
In the past, computer programming was perceived as a task only carried out by computer scientists; in the 21st century, however, computer programming is viewed as a critical and necessary skill that everyone should learn. In order to improve teaching of problem-solving abilities in a computing environment, extensive research is being done on…

Ibáñez, María-Blanca; Di-Serio, Ángela; Villarán-Molina, Diego; Delgado-Kloos, Carlos – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2015
This paper reports empirical evidence on having students use AR-SaBEr, a simulation tool based on augmented reality (AR), to discover the basic principles of electricity through a series of experiments. AR-SaBEr was enhanced with knowledge-based support and inquiry-based scaffolding mechanisms, which proved useful for discovery learning in…

Jung, I. Y.; Yeom, H. Y. – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2009
While development of the Internet has contributed to the spread of online education, online exams have not been widely adopted. An online exam is defined here as one that takes place over the insecure Internet, and where no proctor is in the same location as the examinees. This paper proposes an enhanced secure online exam management environment…
