This article is from Frontiers in Psychology , volume 5 . Abstract In the last couple of years, there has been a dramatic increase in laboratory research examining the benefits of recall testing on long-term learning and retention. This work was largely on the backward effect of testing, which shows that retrieval practice on previously studied information, compared to restudy of the same material, renders the information more likely to be remembered in the future. Going beyond this prominent...

This article is from Iranian Journal of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences , volume 6 . Abstract Objective: Approximately 66-80%of graduate students experience statistics anxiety and some researchers propose that many students identify statistics courses as the most anxiety-inducing courses in their academic curriculums. As such, it is likely that statistics anxiety is, in part, responsible for many students delaying enrollment in these courses for as long as possible. This paper proposes a...

This is the 2013 and 2014 case of Brett T. Snodgrass, MD v. the Missouri Board of Registration for the Healing Arts. The Honorable Commissioner gave a just and equitable ruling. However, it is not the ruling that is of the utmost concern, but the process by which we arrived at the ruling. Typically, things such as outcome are what matters most. However, there are exceptions. Consider a millionaire who earned his money through a lifetime of diligent work, saving, and creating a business that...

The author also provides an outline of the implications that these methods of presentation have had on visitors. A major objective is to determine how history museums actually alter the basic relationship between the object and its beholder. Museum display development has been affected by at least five factors...

The Department of Educational Foundations at Western Illinois University developed a model preservice curriculum to respond to the problem of preparing teachers who can influence their environment rather than be victims of it and who can effectively transmit that message to students. Entitled Empowerment through Cognitive and Social Management (ECOSOM), the program employs a cognitive frame-of-reference construct which involves the ability to monitor, regulate, evaluate, and modify the learning...

This paper asserts that successful teachers must be reflective and analytical about their own beliefs and practices and acquire deep understanding of cognitive and motivational principles of learning and teaching. It examines how teachers can model and promote self-regulated learning for students. Self-regulated learning is characterized by awareness of thinking, use of strategies, and situated motivation. Teachers must experience, construct, and discuss these features in order to understand...

All participants, 60 university students enrolled in a beginning photography course for non-art majors, were subject to the same conditions. The treatment was embedded instruction and practice in reflection, planning, and evaluation. Metacognitive awareness was measured prior to and after the treatment. The use of metacognitive strategies was measured by a...

This study examined the effectiveness of PLAE (Preplan List, Activate, and Evaluate) in training students to have executive control over their learning strategies. Subjects, 56 at-risk students enrolled in four separate sections of an upper-level study strategies course at a major southern university, received intensive, direct instruction in either PLAE or more traditional time management techniques during a 5-week period. During a second 5-week period, subjects constructed study plans or time...

This review of the literature examines the effectiveness of instructing students in various test-taking strategies, particularly in reference to multiple choice questions. Among findings reported are that while test-wiseness strategies may be taught, these strategies have limited generalizability across exams and learners who proactively process information, such as test items, are more likely to understand and recall what they learn. Specific strategies validated by the literature for multiple...

This paper studies student performance predictions based on the United States Medical Licensure Exam (USMLE) Step 1. Subjects were second-year medical students from academic years of 2002 through 2006 (n = 711). Three measures of basic science knowledge (two curricular and one extracurricular) were evaluated as predictors of USMLE Step 1 scores. The USMLE Step 1 scores correlated with performance on Organ Systems (r = 0.76), Human Structure (r = 0.65), and CBSE (r = 0.69). Accounting for 59% of...

The University of California faces the challenge of increasing the diversity of students graduating from its medical schools while also adhering to mandated restrictions on the use of race or ethnicity in the admissions process. Students from diverse backgrounds who gain admission as undergraduates to UC Berkeley and express an early interest in a medical career are an important potential source of medical students for the UC system. However previous data suggest that many of these...
