Series: Progress in Education
BISAC: EDU000000

The ongoing Progress in Education series presents substantial results from around the globe in selected areas of educational research. Schools are institutions that sail in the tempest of educational issues, reforms, strategies, data and tools, as well as reflect changes in society. Embedded in all of these are technology, diversity, and innovation – their inevitability has been demonstrated in our schools and communities. The first chapter of this volume reviews several assessment techniques for students’ mathematics knowledge, and discusses the advantages and disadvantages of each. The following chapters include topics on interprofessional education in the healthcare setting; adaptive learning systems for developing and improving reading comprehension skills; shared cultural identity in group work activities of adult learners; value-added effect of credit-based transition programs after controlling for preexisting student characteristics; a multiyear, statewide analysis of high school size and attendance rate differences for Texas Hispanic students, as well as dropout rate differences; and factors affecting Taiwanese adolescents’ academic burnout and work engagement.
