Effectiveness of Small-Group Learning in Statistics and Research Methods College Classes: A Multilevel Meta-Analysis Approach

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Over the past three decades, educational researchers and policy makers have focused on the debate and controversy about which classroom pedagogies best enhance student learning. The main objectives of this study are to:

(a) Perform an extensive library searches to locate the primary studies that examine the effectiveness of small-group instruction compared to lecture-based instruction in statistics and research methods college classes.

(b) Code the collected primary studies and calculate the effect size indices and their variances.

(c) Use the multilevel meta-analysis methods via Hierarchical Linear Modeling to integrate and model the effect sizes.

(d) Determine how much research has been conducted on the use of small-group learning methods in statistics classrooms;

(e) Determine what different forms of small-group learning methods have been evaluated in statistics discipline;

(f) Determine how effective each of the small-group methods evaluated in comparison to lecture-based instruction is in maximizing student achievement in statistics courses.
