For weeks four and five we read Dirsken, chapters two and four. There were several key points throughout these two chapters, but three stood out to me the most.
There are five different types of learning theories, behaviorism, cognitivism, humanism, social learning, or constructivism. All of them propose various ways through which learning is realized. However, there is no single set of learning theory, which if followed to the latter can grant a tutor a perfect outcome in the classroom. For many years, the study of learning has resulted in heated debates. It has been at the center of educational psychology. Even though psychologists agree on the significance of learning as a topic of study, they often fail to agree on the mechanics of how the process of learning occurs. Shunk et al. (2012), define learning as "the process of acquiring a relatively permanent change in understanding, attitude, knowledge, information, ability, and skill is
Learning is an amazing, beautiful, and helpful process of the mind. It lets us recall things that we have come to understand; learn. We learn about the people, the world, the challenges humanity has faced, wars fought over time. Texas has many schools and the main goal for these school 's is that the student 's pass rather than anything else. The only thing is, without understandment and knowledge of what we are supposed to be learning, how are we going to pass these test.
11. 27. 35. Those arbitrary numbers remained in my head for an entire week. They were questions I knew I missed on my last test. I could recall nearly every detail from those questions, and the answer choices they provided. When I look them over after the test, I can answer all of the questions without hesitation. But when it comes to figuring out how to move on and ultimately become content, I draw a blank, just like on that day of the test. The pattern stays static, and though I do well on tests, I desire perfection, that cherry on top to cement that I know the material in and out. That has been my mentality to as far back as I can remember. But at times, it can eat at you, until you feel like an empty shell of your former self. That’s how
There are also much better ways to test a student’s capability to learn; a 2006 Center on Education Policy conducted a study and found that a curriculum that follows state standards and uses the test data as feedback led to higher scores than those that prioritized test-taking skills. When teachers are more focused on teaching material rather than test strategies, their students benefit from it (“Do Standardized Tests Show an Accurate View of Students’ Abilities?”). Several alternative methods to state assessments for measuring a student’s academic success include comparing high school graduation rates and the number of dropouts, offering advanced placement courses, and looking at the percentage of the former students that are admitted to colleges. State assessments are more harmful than helpful to students; they are a large cause of test anxiety and a majority of teachers can never fully prepare their students. Although state assessments are an easy way to be able to see the growth of students, that does not mean that they are the best
The claimant is a 25 year-old man who arrived on time for his evaluation. He presented with a valid California Driver License.
In Experiment 1, the experimenters used 12 names of both the Boston Braves’ and the Cleveland Indians’ rosters for the 1948 World Series. Participants were assigned to two conditions (spoken or sung). Half of the subjects heard the Cleveland lineup, and the other half heard the Boston lineup. For the sung condition, the 12 names were read to the tune of “Pop Goes the Weasel.” Participants then recited the names they had heard in order to the experimenter. One week later, participants were tested to see if they were able to remember their list. If they could not, they used the same procedures to relearn the list they had studied in the first session. Then participants learned the other team’s list of names using the same procedure, but those
At university, many undergraduate students are overwhelmed with the amount of information they are expected to retain for exams and, in turn, become very familiar with the Schedule II drug, amphetamine—namely Adderall. The prescription drug that is used to treat individuals with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) has found its way onto university campuses and is illicitly being used as a study aid. There are many misunderstandings however; pertaining to the effects of the drug and the associations it has with studying and expected grade outcome.
Although on the surface, the element of memory in the study of psychology may seem basic and rudimentary, the depths of memory are essentially, untapped. To truly understand the depths of memory, one must understand the storage of memory, the recollection of memory, and the processes of sharing memories. In order to obtain a better understanding of the subject matter, the examination of the independent documentary, Stories We Tell, was applied. Memory is also conceptualized into types, stages, and processes. These principles were measured in the lucrative and thorough examination of a childhood memory. In order to ensure the reliability and validity of the memory, the use of self-recollection, the use of recording, and the use of sharing with
I tested 4 students by giving two of the four students a piece of spearmint gum and two students no gum during the test. The students with the gum both averaged a 97. Georgia scoring and 97, and Chloe also scoring a 97. The students who did not have a piece of gum during the test both averaged a 94. Emma scored a 100 and Mackenzie scored an 88. This proves that gum relaxes and shows better results during a test. While chewing gum memory is improved because of memory or the hippocampus increases while people chew. It creates more insulin that helps the memory of the brain. Chewing gum increases the glucose level which is fuel for the body and for the brain. It increases the blood flow to the brain which gives you an adrenaline
The issue arises, in this “solution”, the testing of the new evaluation’s effectiveness. In studying the effects of a new testing system, there would be an increase in the frequency and magnitude of testing which students would be demanded to undergo in order for the test to be deemed adequate. If the new test was not seen fit to measure academic progress, other tests would need to be imposed until a sufficient one is approved; the result of this solution is a mass-tested society. Therefore, this “solution” is not really an answer at all, but rather, another issue waiting to
The purpose of this study was to examine the phonological encoding affects speech production and retrieval, and how this process may cause the TOT phenomenon (or also known as the ‘Tip of the Tongue’ effect). The researchers also studied whether age had an effect on the processes and incidents of encountering TOTs.
It is 8 o'clock on a Monday morning and you're crammed in a room surrounded by people you most likely don't know, taking a test you have probably never taken before. This five hour test you're worrying about is our standardized testing. These are tests that are designed in a way that manages and documents consistent standardized test scores. In standardized testing all of the test takers are required to answer the same set of questions, under the same conditions. These tests usually have multiple-choice problems and true or false questions, where examinees are given a certain amount of time to answer as many problems in a set time. When the testing is finished the scores are usually used to compare the performance of individuals in a relative
A limitation of most of these studies is that self-reports for each individual with their ability to recall information accurately can vary. Some of these studies had little representative samples so can’t generalize findings. Another limitation was that telephone interviews were done. This makes it hard to see one’s reactions of the questions being asked.
This report is about improving students’ memory. The aim to research on this topic is to help students to improve their memory and be have better prepared for exam.
