Economics of Education Review Vol. 36, No. 1 (October 2013) pp. 41–59
We investigate short and long-term effects of early childhood education using variation created by a policy experiment in British Columbia, Canada. Our findings imply being in kindergarten longer increases the probability of repeating the third...
Teaching and Teacher Education: An International Journal of Research and Studies Vol. 23, No. 5 (July 2007) pp. 705–729
This study investigates the dialogic processes involved in how teachers talk about their students and what consequences their ways of talking (i.e., “narratives”) may have for their guidance. We take a sociocultural perspective on learning as...
Assessing Students' Abilities to Construct and Interpret Line Graphs: Disparities between Multiple-Choice and Free-Response Instruments
Science Education Vol. 78, No. 6 (1994) pp. 527–54
Describes studies designed to examine the instrumentation used to assess both graphing abilities and the impact of microcomputer-based laboratories (MBL) on students' graphing abilities. Results suggest that numerous disparities between the results...
RSR: Reference Services Review Vol. 20, No. 4 (1992) pp. 37–48
Describes The Gateway, a computerized library system for undergraduate students that integrates access to multiple sources of information and provides embedded training on their use. A discussion of the general interface design principles is...
