Rough Set Theory (Rst) Data Analysis With R And Its Application On Studying Relative Significances Of Self-Regulated Learning (Srl) Strategies Of Gifted Students, Tze-ho Fung, Wing-yi Li 2022 Hong Kong Academy for Gifted Education

Rough Set Theory (Rst) Data Analysis With R And Its Application On Studying Relative Significances Of Self-Regulated Learning (Srl) Strategies Of Gifted Students, Tze-Ho Fung, Wing-Yi Li

Practical Assessment, Research, and Evaluation

Abstract

Rough set theory (RST) was proposed by Zdzistaw Pawlak (Pawlak,1982) as a methodology for data analysis using the notion of discernibility of objects based on their attribute values. The main advantage of using RST approach is that it does not need additional assumptions – like data distribution in statistical analysis. Besides, it provides efficient algorithms and tools for finding hidden patterns. Despite its advantages, the adoption of RST in educational research is still limited, which may be due to limited quality software available for RST. Recently, the RoughSets package in R statistical system has been developed (Riza et al., …

Trauma-Informed Practices For Test-Taking Anxiety At The Elementary Grade Level, Kate Campbell, Shalini Mathew

Journal of Research Initiatives

Test -Taking Anxiety (TTA) is a challenging experience for children of all ages. Childhood exposure to trauma and adverse experience has been increasing. Fortunately, trauma-informed practices, such as mindfulness activities have become more widespread in schools throughout the last few years. Existing school counseling literature offers limited perspectives on how school counselors can support elementary students for TTA. This conceptual article explores the effects of trauma-informed practices on elementary-age students' test anxiety and overall academic success in schools and offers implications for practice.


Utilizing Counter Narratives To Develop Culturally Sustaining, Critically Conscious Preservice Teacher Practitioners, David Wolff 2022 Pittsburg State University

Utilizing Counter Narratives To Develop Culturally Sustaining, Critically Conscious Preservice Teacher Practitioners, David Wolff

Essays in Education

The content areas that get most attention in an elementary classroom include mathematics and English/Language Arts (ELA), and little time is devoted to other content areas like social studies. Preservice elementary teachers can learn to maximize instructional time by integrating social studies content in the ELA block. Using counternarratives, preservice teachers can learn to use children’s literature to teach multiple perspectives to the dominant narrative in the textbooks. This article shares strategies to present counternarratives and examples of children’s literature that can be used in an elementary classroom.

Identifying Instructional Design Strategies In Differentiated Instruction In China: A Systematic Review, Haizhi Fu

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

Differentiated instruction (DI) is defined as an approach that allows teachers to strategically and proactively plan and vary curriculum design and delivery to address students’ individual needs and to create meaningful student experiences. Since China’s New Curriculum Reform in 2001, DI has been extensively employed to motivate teachers to be curriculum developers and researcher practitioners. Teachers were encouraged to develop a diverse curriculum by connecting students’ and teachers’ life experiences and prior knowledge to the course content. Despite this popularity, the DI practice has been met with great difficulties and challenges in China, and few studies have identified instructional design …

The research utilizes qualitative interviews and focus groups to understand how academically motivated students approach their mental health. Mental health is defined as “emotional, psychological, and social well-being,” by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention and is becoming a more significant concern in collegiate student populations. At Portland State University, the effects of mental health concerns on students are nearly double that of students around the U.S (Community Commons, n.d.). Academically motivated students are a group who seemingly strive for success and likely experience high levels of stress daily. The study found that students often take a passive approach …
