This review summarizes international empirical studies on criteria for school effectiveness between 1995-2004. The data comes from a special study on this topic for the Dutch school inspectorate and has been re-analyzed for this contribution. In the first section of the paper, effectiveness criteria are reviewed with regard to their role in theoretical models of school effectiveness research. In the...
possible to go through the entire curriculum or to imagine how the individual courses, learning units, outcomes and branches of medicine are interrelated. This paper introduces an innovative analytical approach which helps to identify automatically the most frequent topics based on keyword extraction. Moreover, the
main issue is related to the management and classification of information provided by users. This paper introduces a folksonomy approach, the architecture of the system, and the results of an experiment about keyword recommendations.
information and communication technologies. We introduce an algorithm for curriculum metadata automatic processing — automatic keyword extraction based on unsupervised approaches, and we demonstrate a real application during a process of innovation and optimization of medical education. The outputs of our pilot analysis
Consider an information repository whose content is categorized. A data item (in the repository) can belong to multiple categories and new data is continuously added to the system. In this paper, we describe a system, CS*, which takes a keyword query and returns the relevant top-K categories. In contrast, traditional
The search engine, keyword extraction is an important technique. In this paper, aiming at the defects of the traditional keyword extraction algorithm, we proposed an improved weight computation strategy. The experimental results show that, the improved method's results are significantly better results than the
How to find the teaching resources according to users' demand quickly and accurately on the Internet is urgent to be solved. This paper proposes a design of pretreatment for keyword-based search over network teaching resource database based on ontology. Firstly, the teaching ontology is created according to the
The paper describes a modality of generating sequences of tests found on different levels of difficulty based on certain keywords given by the user. A battery of tests is represented by a normal tree and every test is codified by a node within a tree. In this matter, every node contains as information a list of
Recent research has focused on the effects of economic volatility on the investment in physical capital; this paper shows that economic volatility and the lack of financial markets have a negative effect also on the accumulation of human capital. Our evidence, drawn from cross-country and panel regressions is that average secondary enrollment in the period 1970-1972 is negatively affected by: the...
This paper proposes a structure that automatically analyzes the parameters of Chinese test items. This structure utilizes latent semantic analysis (LSA) to analyze the relationships of keywords among all test items in an item bank. It also uses the similarity measure to calculate the similarity degree of keywords. We
enhanced. Three PDA integrated outdoor observation activities and worksheets were arranged for elementary school's ecology learning. A scoring rubric and two scoring methods, i.e. keyword pattern-matching (PM) and Latent Semantic Analysis (LSA), have been developed for rating the construct responses of worksheet. The scoring
optimized sequences of tests described by certain keywords which follow certain restrictions given by the user. These restrictions refer to matching keywords that characterize each test with the keywords given by the user. The user also has the choice to avoid as much as possibly certain tests that are characterized by some
randomness of the evaluation on examination paper, this paper demonstrates a representation model, which assists the educators to analyze the percentage of accuracy between examination paper specification (EPS) and JSU. The parameters used are cognitive level and score. Keyword extraction and classification approach based on
costs. Besides conventional functions in LMS, NOBASU has incorporated several original ones such as the keyword submission function for preparing and reviewing class contents. In this paper, we present two new characteristic functions for the Java programming education in NOBASU. The Java code test function verifies the
Writing and browsing education blogs has become one of the important methods of e-learning. Learners can search the interesting resources from these education blogs. However, the traditional blog search only provides keyword-based matching, lacking automatic extraction of learner interests and further interest-related
important words or phrases in the text to other pages, thereby letting users quickly access additional information. An automatic text-annotation system combines keyword extraction and word-sense disambiguation to identify relevant links to Wikipedia pages.

With the gradual improvement of the level of educational information, the idea of education big data has gone deep into people's minds. More and more teaching staff and researchers have the consciousness of the data needs, and expect to do the data mining and learning analysis of education big data. However, the most realistic and basic problem they have in the process of carrying out research is...
A major drawback in today's information landscape is the distribution of resources across numerous repositories. Consequently, users interested in working with these resources need to either jump from repository to repository to find and possibly access them or rely on web search engines. In this paper, we discuss the problems arising from these ways and introduce the metadata based MACE approach...
This paper discusses the results of a study of the requirements for developing a remote radio frequency (RF) laboratory for electrical engineering students. It investigates students' preferred usage of the technical content of a state-of-the-art RF laboratory. The results of this study are compared to previous findings, which dealt with other user groups (technicians in technical colleges and engineers...
