Visible Learning: A synthesis of over 800 meta-analyses relating to achievement

This specific and ground-breaking e-book is the results of 15 years learn and synthesises over 800 meta-analyses at the impacts on fulfillment in school-aged scholars. It builds a narrative in regards to the strength of academics, suggestions, and a version of studying and knowing. The examine includes many hundreds of thousands of scholars and represents the most important ever facts dependent learn into what truly works in faculties to enhance studying.

Brain Matters: Translating Research Into Classroom Practic, Second Edition

Every body concurs that what we do in faculties could be according to what we all know approximately how the mind learns. till lately, in spite of the fact that, we've had few clues to free up the secrets and techniques of the mind. Now, examine from the neurosciences has enormously better our knowing of the training procedure, and we've a way more reliable starting place on which to base academic judgements.

Example text

Across both tasks, ratings rose as a strong function of increases in the contingency. The contingency-rating function from the Tap task was notably steeper than that from the Press task and it more nearly conformed to the positive diagonal in Fig. 2, which represents isomorphism between the subjects' scaled rating scores and the nominal contingencies. To examine the role of the overall probability of the outcome on contingency ratings, the three noncontingent problems were again selected from the full problem set.

More generally, they suggest a direct relationship between one parameter of natural history, dependence on cached food, and spatial memory. VII. Implications and Future Directions Although this research project started from natural history and ecology, the results have many implications of general interest to psychologists. In this section, we discuss three of these implications, with an emphasis on questions that remain for further research. A. IMPLICATIONS FOR COMPARATIVE RESEARCH Although the psychological literature on animal learning and memory is huge, encompassing thousands of publications, comparative research makes up a relatively small part of this literature.

Each of the six resulting subgroups (n = 18) was given the same contingencies, instructions, and rating scale as the Tap group in Experiment 1. The upper panels of Fig. 6 illustrate the mean scaled rating scores of each scheduled contingency, for each subgroup, under both incentive conditions. In all cases, ratings were strong direct functions of the scheduled contingency; there were no notable differences among any of the six depicted functions. The lower panels of Fig. 6 illustrate the mean scaled rating scores in all six conditions as a function of outcome probability in the three noncontingent problems.
