(2006) used a Clinical Teaching Experience Questionnaire (CTPQ) to evaluate students’ (peer learner) perception about PAL in clinical teaching. The CTPQ was a 10-item questionnaire which rate from a 5-point Likert scale ranging from strongly agree to strongly disagree. In 2011, McKenna & French investigated effectiveness of PAL in undergraduate nursing student by using the CTPQ and another questionnaire named Peer Teaching Experience Questionnaire (PTEQ) that consist of 14-statement. The authors adapted the PTEQ from Iwasiw & Goldenberg (1993) to evaluate the experience of students as the peer leader. PTEQ had adequate reliability among undergraduate nursing students (William et al.
Group A will be the control group while Group B will be the experimental group. The dependent variable was the amount of growth shown by each student as measured by the Gates Macginitie Reading Test Fourth Edition. The independent variable will be the Brain Gym program. The students in Group B will participate in specific brain gym activities that are specifically targeted to improve reading comprehension skills such Neck Rolls, Space Buttons, The Calf Pumps, The Energizer, The Footflex and The Positive Points. The brain gym sessions will be held for 15 minutes per day at the start of the Reading Class over a period of 10
Dr. Fuller: Good morning class, it’s true, just like you, I took honors biology in high school. I enjoyed learning explanations on the cellular structure of our bodies, the ways human traits can pass from parents to children, and how specific genes correlate with the probability of a disease transferring to an offspring. Even more significant, I received hands-on experience sequencing DNA, a process that is used to help diagnose
Thus, in order to improve students’ problem-solving skills and the tendency for critical thinking, it is essential for the teachers to develop their own skills for this purpose. Problem-solving skills and critical thinking tendencies are assumed to be higher in those who have studied science teaching (Kong, 2007; Üstündağ ve Beşoluk, 2012). Problem Statement: The first statement explored with the quantitative research methods of the project is as follows; "What are the implications of scientific toys, developed by the science teacher candidates in an inquiry-based learning environment, on the skills of problem-solving and critical thinking of teacher candidates, in comparison with inquiry-based learning activities?” The sub-problems addressed in this context are stated below; 1. What is the effect of scientific toys, developed by the science teacher candidates in an inquiry-based learning environment, on the skills of problem-solving of teacher candidates, in comparison with inquiry-based learning activities?
PRESENTATION, ANALYSIS AND INTERPRETATION OF DATA This chapter deals with the presentation, analysis and interpretation of the results of the study on the effectiveness of ARCS Model of Motivational Design in enhancing the academic performance among Grade 7 students. The data were gathered through the pretest and posttest of the ARCS group and Non-ARCS group. These data were treated using the mean, standard deviation and T-test and are presented using the tabular and textual forms. The presentation follows the order of questions in Chapter 1. Pretest Performance in Science of the ARCS and Non-ARCS Groups These groups of subjects were equated in terms of their first quarter grade in Science.
Greta Warren – Lab Group 2 Date of practical - 24/10/2014 / Date of submission – 13/11/2014 Demonstrators – Shane and Tara Effect of interference on reaction times in a colour identification task tested in undergraduates __________ words ABSTRACT A phenomenon known as the Stroop Effect, discovered by J. R. Stroop in 1935, was tested among a sample group of 54 undergraduate psychology students, of mixed gender and varying age range. Stroop found that reaction time in identifying a colour was significantly increased when presented in the form of a word describing a different or incongruent colour. 144 words, divided into four levels of congruence were presented on a computer monitor to each participant, who were then asked to respond as quickly
(Second Semester) Origins allows students ten weeks of reading and discussing the Creation vs. Evolution debate. The last five weeks are devoted to a simple section on chemistry, in which students learn how to use the periodic table and build models of
The study’s participants are high school students from grade eleven and twelve in Australia, Hong Kong, and US. There were 107 Chinese students born in Hong Kong students all from one school, 142 European American students also all from one school, and 133 European Australian students all from one school. The students were required to answer a questionnaire anonymously for 2 sittings, one week apart based on parenting styles. The classification of parenting style used in the questionnaire is based on Baumrind proposed scheme adopted by Dornbusch. Report cards and a self-evaluation of individual academic performance compared to classmates were used to measure school performance.
The questionnaire used contains psychometric questions to measure the attributes of various personalities. For the data analysis descriptive as well as inferential statistical tools-Chi square, correlation and others were used. Nine Cell Matrixes of Student Personalities: On the basis of the study over 101 students of UPTU, researcher classified the students into three classes-on the basis of academic performance, and on the basis of classroom attendance. It was found that one can easily segment these students on this matrix and these cells are significantly different from each other. Methodology for classification of Students The researcher used two dimensions to classifying the student personalities.
The researcher aims to use the Information Processing Approach in teaching Science to grade IX students. This study worked on Information Processing Approach in improving the achievement of the students in Science IX. The study was conducted at Las Pinas East National High School during the first quarter of school year 2016-2017. Purposive sampling was employed in selecting the two sections in the study. The researcher gathered its data from the two sections in grade IX of Las Piñas East National High School handled by the researcher namely IX-Carbon and IX-Copper.
