Performance criteria-based effect size (PCES) measurement of single-case experimental designs: A real-world data study.

J Appl Behav Anal 2022 May 20. Epub 2022 May 20.

KU, Leuven.

Visual analysis and nonoverlap-based effect sizes are predominantly used in analyzing single case experimental designs (SCEDs). Although they are popular analytical methods for SCEDs, they have certain limitations. In this study, a new effect size calculation model for SCEDs, named performance criteria-based effect size (PCES), is proposed considering the limitations of 4 nonoverlap-based effect size measures, widely accepted in the literature and that blend well with visual analysis.

Res Pract Technol Enhanc Learn 2022 25;17(1):11. Epub 2022 Mar 25.

Beijing Normal University, Beijing, China.

This paper explores faculty's perspectives and use of open educational resources (OER) and their repositories across different countries by conducting a multiple case study to find similarities and differences between academics' awareness, perceptions and use of OER, as well as examining related aspects of institutional policy and quality that may influence individual views. Data were collected through nine expert reports on each country studied (Australia, Canada, China, Germany, Japan, South Africa, South Korea, Spain and Turkey) and were analyzed through qualitative content analysis using thematic coding. Findings show the impact on individual OER adoption with regard to the individual control of diverse factors by faculty members; of institutional policies and quality measures on the externally determined factors (by the institution); and of institutional professional development and provision of incentives in more internally determined factors (by the faculty members themselves).
