I often write about research studies from various fields and how they can be applied to the classroom. I write individual posts about ones that I think are especially significant, and will continue to do so. However, so many studies are published that it’s hard to keep up. So I’ve started writing a “round-up” of some of them each week or every other week as a regular feature.

By the way, you might also be interested in MY BEST POSTS ON NEW RESEARCH STUDIES IN 2021 – PART TWO.

The study in this next tweet seems pretty interesting, though appears to be written in more “academese” than even the typical dense academic paper. I was struck by this line:

I do wonder if this might be able to be applied to often disputed number of times a student has to be exposed to a new word before it’s learned?

How the switch from paper to computer tests impacts student achievement is from The Fordham Institute.
