Advances In Social Science, Education And Humanities Research

The Center for Mathematics and Science Education Research (CMSER) coordinates research, teacher education, curriculum development and implementation, and dissemination efforts in mathematics and science education, and fosters rich partnerships with educational institutions and organizations throughout the Milwaukee metropolitan area. Although there is much that is not understood about the relationships between development and learning, the evidence is clear that a student’s instructional history plays a critical role in her scientific knowledge, scientific reasoning, and readiness to do and learn more science. Components of the cognitive system (e.g., processing speed and capacity, strategies and heuristics, metacognition) certainly are factors that contribute to a student’s learning history, but so do other mechanisms that are manipulable by educators and constitute the design tools” that a teacher can deploy to most directly affect science learning.

Governmental guidelines and tests often focus on middle and high school-level STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education. Yet, … Read more

A persistent problem has been the lack of articulation between pre-and … Read more

Science Education And The Issue Of Making Repeated Trials In The Laboratory

The Science Education MA aims to reflect contemporary theory in all aspects of practice in science education: international, formal and informal. The preparation of an effective science teacher involves more than providing a student with up-to-date content and some generalized teaching skills. P. Glewwe and M. Kremer, Schools, Teachers, and Education Outcomes in Developing Countries, In The Handbook on the Economics of Education, Volume 2. Edited by E. A. Hanushek and F. Welch. (North‑Holland, 2006). A review of lessons emerging from randomized evaluations in education.

Score differences between students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch and those who were not persisted within racial or ethnic groups. For example, the gaps between eligible and non-eligible students in grade 4 mathematics were 18 points among white students, 17 points among Hispanic students, and 16 points among black students. Similar gaps held among eighth and twelfth grade students and across all grade levels … Read more
