Sentences about Science Implementing and Assessing a Writing Model for Distance Learners in Undergraduate Physics

Free
SKU: cje-30-2-4

Writing about a scientific topic gives the instructor an excellent way to measure student comprehension. In writing tasks, the instructor can also observe student thinking abilities of a scientific nature. Yet it is common that physics curricula do not explicitly use writing tasks in their assessment schemes, even though almost all physicists implicitly judge student writing in problem solving and problem solving is the "gold standard" for student achievement in physics.

The WAC Experience Integrating Writing Strategies into a Third-Year Statistics Course

Free
SKU: cje-30-2-3

Samsa and Oddone (1994, 117) state that statisticians need to write to describe, explain, clarify, convince and to publicize information. Unfortunately, students majoring in statistics and other mathematics based disciplines usually avoid courses which require significant levels of writing. Yet, on completion of their degree, they are usually employed in areas which require a significant amount of report writing, both to specialist audiences as well as to audiences that do not necessarily understand the language of this subject area.

Student Perceptions and Outcomes of a WAC Intervention Exercise in an Introductory Biology Course

Free
SKU: cje-30-2-2

The ability to write effectively in biology is a persistent concern in the Department of Life Sciences of the University of the West Indies. Although writing skills, such as spelling, punctuation, and sentence structure, are generally sufficient, content, structure, and coherency fall below an acceptable standard. In this study, we used quantitative methods to determine whether specific writing tasks would lead to a change in biology students' perception of writing in science and the perceived value of and/or willingness to use writing as a component in their science learning.

Planting the ‘Write’ Seeds

Free
SKU: cje 38-2-4

There are misconceptions in some quarters that tools used by medical doctors are solely mechanical, and that if students who pursue studies in Medical Sciences obtain mastery in the process of elimination and apply this to their multiple-choice examinations they are likely to succeed. However, these are limited views of such professionals and students. In order to be successful, practising and prospective medical doctors, like their counterparts in different fields, utilize other tools in their professional, academic and private endeavours. One such tool is writing.

$10.00
SKU: JEDIC-1702

In Trinidad and Tobago, elementary school students transition to secondary schools after writing the Secondary Entrance Examination (SEA), which determines which school they are placed at. Up to 2013, that examination comprised summative assessment in Mathematics, English Language Arts, and Composition. During the period 2013 to 2016, however, a continuous assessment component (CAC) was introduced, requiring amongst other things, that students produce a portfolio of written pieces.
