en: This paper analyzes the open responses to a problem situation used in research on the mean with data containing outliers. The results reveal correct and incorrect perceptions and show that statistical notions regarding the context and representativeness of a data set are far removed from teacher training. Elementary teacher educators could draw from these perceptions and help to improve them so that future teachers may gain a full understanding of the concept, which will give them the skills they need to teach statistics in schools.>>>

en: Various studies exist which propose assessment models for online courses from the students’ perspective. However, despite displaying statistically significant links, these studies have a weakness: they assume that their components are equally important. This research was performed in light of this situation and aims to show that the importance of each component is significantly different, and identify which components are most important for students. The data collection technique used was a survey conducted on a random sample of 327 students. The Friedman test and, post hoc, the Nemenyi test were used in order to contrast the difference between variables. The main results confirm the need to consider the importance of the components of online courses to refine existing models.>>>

en: Theoretical and empirical research offers support for explicit instruction on metacognition and cognitive strategies as an effective way to improve L2 listening skills. This study is aimed at identifying whether both metacognition and cognitive strategies are worked on in a university-level French class on a daily basis. A second-year French-class teacher and his students (n=26) were observed during five listening-based sessions over a semester. Quantitative data was collected with regard to six dimensions of explicit metacognitive instruction of listening skills, using a teacher self-evaluation questionnaire, a student questionnaire and a structured observation. The results reveal implicit cognitive work during the pre-, while- and post-listening teaching stages. Nonetheless, strategy assessment, and the explicit teaching of metacognitive strategies for planning, monitoring, controlling and problem identifying, both remain controversial.>>>

en: The objective of this study was to identify profiles of high school students, based on variables related to academic performance, socioeconomic status, cultural capital and family organization. A total of 21,724 high school students, from the five municipalities of the state of Baja California, took part. A K-means cluster analysis was performed to identify the profiles. The analyses identified two clearly-defined clusters: Cluster 1 grouped together students with high academic performance and who achieved higher scores for socioeconomic status, cultural capital and family involvement, whereas Cluster 2 brought together students with low academic achievement, and who also obtained lower scores for socioeconomic status and cultural capital, and had less family involvement. It is concluded that the family variables analyzed form student profiles that can be related to academic achievement.>>>

en: Since 1992, the Mexican government has been making a renewed effort to improve civic involvement in public schools. Through different regulations, it has sought to enhance organizational skills and a sense of co-responsibility in parents, alumni, and other social agents. It has proposed measures aimed at involving the community, such as creating School Councils for Social Engagement. The aim of these Councils is to promote a constructive and co-responsible dialog concerning the administration and organization of schools, by involving different members of the community in educational affairs. This article presents the outcome of a case study from the qualitative and ethnographic perspective of how parents, directors, and teachers get involved in the creation and running of School Councils in a primary school. The results are very similar to those of other studies exploring parents’ associations' difficulties with the innovative figure of the School Councils.>>>

en: The aim of this article is to analyze the relationship between dropping out of school and the perceived quality of the last school that Mexican teenagers attended, and examine the interaction between this educational factor and the economic status of this population. Based on the 2010 National Youth Survey, the researchers used the life table to describe this relationship, and Cox regression models to analyze it, including individual, family-related and educational co-variables. The results show that the risk of dropping out of school is indirectly linked to school quality and, to a greater degree, to economic status; and that the gap between students dropping out based on school quality is slightly wider among adolescents of low academic status than among those of high status.>>>

en: After eleven years of the Argentine government implementing different educational engagement policies, it is appropriate to look into the achievements in education. What sociodemographic, socioeconomic and sociocultural factors are linked to academic grades as a proxy for educational achievement in subjects such as Mathematics and Language in primary and secondary education? This study shows relatively well-known inequalities relating to sex and educational paths. Nevertheless, other influential sociocultural factors were explored which are relatively independent from socioeconomic and school administration factors, such as having books at home, reading behavior and storytelling. Moreover, the relationship between social stratification and the type of school management was identified. In order to achieve this, analyses were performed using logistic regression models based on microdata from the Argentine Social Debt Survey for 2011.>>>
en: Although some answers are being found to address the challenge of integrating disabled people into the workplace, there is still a long way to go. This paper, developed at a special needs education center by way of a First Vocational Qualification Program (or PCPI in Spanish), presents the design for a person-centered job placement plan. The research aims to offer a model of good practices that will enable other groups and education centers to continue working to improve their students’ integration into the workplace. Lastly, it offers a reflection on what PCPIs have meant up to now for people with disabilities or at risk of social exclusion, and teacher responsibility in light of the new educational model proposed by the new Spanish education law.>>>

en: The aim of this paper is to present a model for administrative knowledge management for the Graduate Support Division of the Instituto Politécnico Nacional (IPN). This administrative unit is important because it is responsible for managing the institution’s academic services at graduate level. A qualitative methodology was used based on in-depth interviews with graduate-level directors, experts in knowledge management and members of the institution. The results obtained support the use of administrative management tools based on Information Technology (IT), such as the design of a comprehensive dashboard, and the proposal that knowledge management processes be automated with digital repositories. The model identifies factors such as the relationships between people, technology, administrative knowledge and knowledge management processes, and is formed with innovative administrative contributions.>>>

en: This article presents a case study which explores and analyzes aspects perceived as potentialities or needing improvement (SWOT analysis) in new university lecturers, from the analysis of clinical supervision or improvement cycles, studied within the framework of the training program for new lecturers at the Institute of Education Sciences (ICE in Spanish) at the Universidad de Sevilla in Spain. The results show potential/positive aspects both internally (Strengths) and externally (Opportunities) in new lecturers, and aspects for improvement internally (Weaknesses) and externally (Threats). This study shows an example through which improvement strategies for the training of new university lecturers can be directed, or existing ones can be redefined, meaning that the case study establishes a framework in which dominant socio-educational strategies can be reflected, as perceived by new university lecturers.>>>

en: This article presents the main epistemic characteristics of the educational methods used in Mapuche family education in communities in the Araucanía region, in Chile. The concept of epistemology is considered with regards to the production of practical, technical, symbolical and spiritual knowledge, as an epistemological critique of the monocultural nature of the school curriculum. The methodology used is qualitative research, based on Grounded Theory; the results shed light on the educational methods used in the learning and teaching of content relating to individuals and society, the setting in time and place, and spatial awareness. It is concluded that this kind of education is organized considering distinctive methods formulated on the basis of the rationale of Mapuche educational knowledge.>>>

en: This paper presents a descriptive study of two topics: 1) the correspondence between conceptions on co-teaching and the teaching practices of teachers at the School of Education in a private university in Lima; 2) the conditions that favor and restrict co-teaching, from the teachers’ perspective. Through interviews and documentary analysis, the idea of co-teaching as ‚team teaching‛ was found to be dominant, even though in practice, autonomy was favored, and teachers are beginning to use a combination of the ‚station teaching‛ and ‚one teach, one drift‛ models. The courses praised most highly by students were one course developed as ‚team teaching‛ and two developed with different degrees of autonomy. The main facilitating factors were personal ones; the main restricting factors were students’ ability and aspects relating to management.>>>

en: This study collects, systematizes and represents expert knowledge from 105 Spanish emeritus professors, with the aim of making this knowledge apparent and useful for universities and society. The ‘knowledge elicitation’ and ‘knowledge capturing’ methodologies have made it easier to reconstruct their experiences and beliefs, which have influenced their academic practices. Information was collected by interviews, which, through autobiographical narratives, enabled the identification of phases in their professional development and changes in their ideas about university. Intra- and inter-subject data analysis was based on the category model, with a conventional statistical and qualitative focus. The conclusions follow the line of previous studies and provide significant data on a group that has not been greatly studied in Spain. The applied research focuses on developing a computing device in collaboration with the Florida Institute for Human and Machine Cognition (IHMC).>>>

en: This article analyzes the change in productivity in 47 Spanish universities using the Malmquist index from 2002 to 2009. The input included in the analysis consists of full-time teaching and research staff and current expenditure on goods and services, whereas the products are the number of graduates and annual scientific production per university. By using this methodology, productivity growth can be split into two parts: change in technical efficiency and technological change. The results show that an annual average change in productivity of -1.1% was recorded across all universities, with a range between -15.2% and 18.3%, which confirms the hypothesis that the Spanish Public University System is greatly heterogeneous regarding change in productivity over time. However, there are some considerable differences in the change in productivity over time when only research and only teaching are analyzed, with an annual average growth of 14.6% and 6.1% respectively. In the case of research activity, the positive changes are mainly the result of technological progress and greater productivity encouraged by the incentive system for high-impact research by teachers.>>>

en: This study responds to the need to determine whether, in an educational setting that incorporates Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and a project-based learning approach, 68 fourth-, fifth- and sixth-grade students from a public institution in Costa Rica have acquired the digital, information processing and teamwork skills necessary to face the challenges of the knowledge society we live in. The study was developed from a mixed embedded, mainly quantitative approach which was exploratory in scope. The results show a medium-high level of performance for digital skills (3.93) and information processing (3.82); and a high performance for teamwork skills (4.17) on a scale of 1 to 5, 5 being the highest score. It is concluded that, due to the age of the population, the results are not definitive, and further training in these skills is recommended.>>>
