Education Research @ Purdue

Spring 2012


From the Dean

Maryann Santos de BaronaPlease enjoy this edition of our electronic newsletter, Education Research @ Purdue. In this issue you'll find news and informa-tion about research in the College of Education at Purdue University. We are pleased that recognition of the good work of our faculty, students, and staff continues to grow! Although we think rankings are not the best way to judge the quality of colleges of education, we can't help but be pleased that the 2013 US News and World Report rankings of Best Education Schools have us climbing once again, now up to #37! We also completed our NCATE accreditation visit and have received positive feedback from the Board of Examiners. We continue to seek ways to grow, improve, and make an impact by launching the future through discovery and the development of human potential.

Research and Project Highlights

HOPE+ to Serve Gifted/Talented Native Americans

Marcia GentryNative American students are among the most underserved populations of gifted and talented individuals across the country. Purdue's Gifted Education Resource Institute (GERI) has undertaken a major project in partnership with the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation to help address the problem. The program, HOPE+ (Having Opportunities Promotes Excellence), is led by Marcia Gentry, Professor of Gifted, Talented, and Creative Studies. Beginning this July and continuing for the next three summers, Native American students in grades 6 through 12 from the Navajo, Ojibwe, and Lakota tribes will be brought to Purdue to participate in the GERI Summer Residential gifted enrichment program. Special attention will be paid to the particular social and emotional Jean Petersonneeds of these students, many of whom have little experience outside of their reservations. Jean Peterson, Professor of School Counseling, and her staff will meet with them daily to discuss pertinent issues, using an affective curriculum currently in development. In addition, these students will be followed longitudinally to study the effects of the experience on their educational trajectories and career pathways. The project also seeks to validate the HOPE Nomination Scale (Gentry, Peters, & Peterson, 2008) for use with Native American students. The HOPE Scale, developed as part of a previous project with the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation, has shown usefulness to identify giftedness among underserved populations of children from low-income families, from African American families, and /or from Hispanic families. The HOPE Scale is a teacher rating instrument with two subscales that measure academic and social aspects of giftedness.

NMRSD Helping Students Learn to Multiply

Yan Ping XinNurturing Multiplicative Reasoning in Students with Learning Difficulties (LD) in a Computerized Conceptual-Modeling Environment (NMRSD), an NSF project directed by Yan Ping Xin, Associate Professor of Special Education, is currently undergoing another round of field-testing of the intelligent tutor, PGBM-COMPS, being developed by the project team.  PGBM stands for “Please Go and Bring Me…,” a game that students engage in as part of the intelligent tutoring system that uses concrete modeling of objects such as cubes and towers to facilitate students’ understanding of fundamental mathematical concepts. COMPS, the other part of the intelligent tutor, stands for “Conceptual Model-based Problem Solving” (Xin, 2008; Xin, Wiles, & Lin, 2008). About 20 students with LD in math are currently enrolled in the NMRSD after-school programs at Glen Acres Elementary School in Lafayette, IN. Results of a preliminary field-test of the PGBM-COMPS tutor last spring indicated that participating students showed significant gains on a measure of multiplicative reasoning, a norm-referenced achievement test, and a statewide test of achievement (i.e., ISTEP+). The project was featured in Purdue's Office of the Vice President for Research 2011 Annual Report Global Footprint, noting “Principal investigator Yan Ping Xin’s premise is that conceptual understanding needs to go above and beyond concrete level of operations; children with learning difficulties must transition, at their own pace, from concrete operations—such as counting cubes in towers or apples in baskets—to abstract reasoning through algorithm and/or mathematical models” (www.purdue.edu/research/VPR/publications).

SLED Project Teaching Science through Engineering Design

Brenda CapobiancoSLED, Science Learning through Engineering Design, is an NSF Math Science Partnership project being co-directed by Brenda Capobianco, Associate Professor of Science Education, and Alyssa Panitch, Professor of Biomedical Engineering. SLED's aim is to improve science learning in grades 3-6 through implementation of engineering design in the classroom. The project brings together faculty from Purdue's Colleges of Education, Engineering, Science, and Technology; the Discovery Learning Research Center; and teachers and administrators from the Lafayette, Tippecanoe, Taylor Community, and Plymouth school districts in Indiana. The project is wrapping up its first year of classroom implementation of engineering design-based curriculum and activities, which were developed by teams of faculty members in science and engineering to address state and national science standards for the targeted grade levels. A total of 33 teachers of grades 5-6, who participated in a two-week summer institute on Purdue's campus in June, have been implementing the design-based approaches in their classrooms. The project will study the impact of the approach on teachers' practices and the learning of their students. The project is also creating linkages to Purdue's elementary teacher preparation program. As part of the project, Professor Capobianco is teaching a special version of EDCI 36500, Teaching Science in the Elementary School, focusing on the engineering design approach. Pre-service teachers in this section of the course learn about engineering design as a vehicle for teaching elementary science, and they are teamed with one of the SLED teachers for the field experience component of the course. Several of the students also participated with the practicing teacher in the SLED summer institute. Another summer institute will take place this June for current project teachers as well as new teachers from the participating schools. Going forward, the project will expand its focus to include grade 3-4 teachers and eventually schools outside of the partnership. For more information, visit sledhub.org.

Understanding How to Prepare Teachers to Teach Algebra

Jill NewtonYukiko MaedaJill Newton, assistant professor of mathematics education, and
Yukiko Maeda, assistant professor of educational psychology and research methods, have been awarded a 3-year NSF REESE grant entitled, "Preparing to Teach Algebra (PTA): A Study of Teacher Education." The project is investigating how state-level policies related to algebra and recently released algebra expectations are addressed in secondary mathematics teacher education programs at universities. Using a mixed methods research design, the project seeks to understand how opportunities for developing knowledge for teaching algebra are provided in different teacher preparation programs.
