Teacher perceptions of the educational value of the FIRST Robotics Competition for workforce preparation with regards to math, science and technology
Teacher perceptions of the educational value of the FIRST@Robotics@Competition for workforce preparation with regards to math, science and technology (2005) pp. 1–138
This is a survey study of the teachers at the FIRST Robotics Championship in Houston Texas that took place April 10-12, 2003. The purpose of the study is to determine who the teachers, teams and schools are who competed in the competition, and to...
Crossing borders: A comparison of the impact various teaching strategies and tools in an online and face-to-face psychology course.
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2013 (Jun 24, 2013) pp. 1724–1731
Distance is gradually disappearing, as technological innovations provide universities with new opportunities and ways of teaching and learning that enable teachers to bring students together, empower and engage students. New technologies allow for...
Think Before You Link: Understanding the Effects of Hypertext on Student Learning Outcomes and Reports of Overload
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2010 (Jun 29, 2010) pp. 701–710
Students often complain of overload in online learning environments. Discussions here consider online factors that might contribute to students’ reports of overload. This study explored the organization and design factor of hypertext; specifically,...
Educational and Psychological Measurement Vol. 54, No. 3 (1994) pp. 676–79
A FORTRAN-77 subroutine is presented to calculate two test statistics for assessing goodness-of-fit in categorical data. The test statistic inferences are based on the exact first three cumulants of the Pearson chi-square statistic and a recently...
Educational and Psychological Measurement Vol. 46, No. 3 (1986) pp. 645–49
An algorithm and associated FORTRAN-77 computer subroutine are described for computing Goodman and Kruskal's tau-b statistic along with the associated nonasymptotic probability value under the null hypothesis tau=O. (Author)
Educational and Psychological Measurement Vol. 47, No. 3 (1987) pp. 631–36
Subroutines to calculate exact chi square and Fisher's exact probability tests are presented for 3 by 2 cross-classification tables. A nondirectional probability value for each test is computed recursively. (Author/GDC)
Educational and Psychological Measurement Vol. 57, No. 2 (1997) pp. 360–64
Describes a FORTRAN software program that calculates the probability of an observed difference between agreement measures obtained from two independent sets of raters. An example illustrates the use of the DIFFER program in evaluating undergraduate...
Educational and Psychological Measurement Vol. 46, No. 1 (1986) pp. 169–73
A nonasymptotic Chi-Square analysis algorithm is presented to investigate r by c contingency tables where small expected cell frequencies render the usual asymptotic analysis inappropriate. A FORTRAN subroutine is provided for analyzing the tables...
International Conference e-Learning 2014. Multi Conference on Computer Science and Information Systems (July 2014)
Advancements in technology and innovations in education allow universities to entertain new ways of teaching and learning. Some views of what higher education should look like today include that it be easily accessed by anyone who wants to be...
Educational and Psychological Measurement Vol. 57, No. 3 (1997) pp. 527–30
A FORTRAN subroutine is presented to calculate a generalized measure of agreement between multiple raters and a set of correct responses at any level of measurement and among multiple responses, along with the associated probability value, under the ...
Keeping It Real: Factors that Impact Social Presence, Feelings of Isolation, and Interactivity in Online Learning
EdMedia: World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2015 (Jun 22, 2015) pp. 1343–1353
A significant body of research literature confirms that social presence is an important element of online teaching and learning and students rank interactivity with peers and instructors, and teaching presence as very important for their learning...
Lecture Capture: Good Student Learning or Good Bedtime Story? An Interdisciplinary Assessment of the Use of Podcasts in Higher Education
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2011 (Jun 27, 2011) pp. 3168–3178
Nowadays podcasts are used in many university courses and often viewed as an effective way to augment undergraduate education. We present research on the use of podcasts in four disciplines (Art, Dentistry, Design and Psychology). We surveyed 386...
