This research represents an unforeseen outcome of the authors' National Science Foundation Innovation Technology Experiences for Students and Teachers (ITEST) program grant in science education. The grant itself focused on the use of serious...
Journal of Science Education and Technology Vol. 23, No. 5 (October 2014) pp. 641–657
Despite an increased focus on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) in U.S. schools, today's students often struggle to maintain adequate performance in these fields compared with students in other countries (Cheek in "...
Computers & Education Vol. 79, No. 1 (October 2014) pp. 116–125
The purpose of this paper is to explain and document the creation of a computational model in the form of an Artificial Neural Network (ANN) capable of simulating student cognition. Specifically, the model simulates students' cognition as they...
Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education Vol. 14, No. 3 (September 2014) pp. 247–265
Innovation is a term that has become widely used in education; especially as it pertains to technology infusion. Applying the corporate theory of diffusing innovation to educational practice is an innovation in itself. This mixed-methods study...

With an increasing need for workers to fill science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) careers in the United States, it is imperative that researchers and teachers find ways to develop student interest in science at a time in their...
Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education International Conference 2012 (Mar 05, 2012) pp. 2458–2461
This brief paper will describe the results from the current wave of data from a National Science Foundation ITEST project. Although the project is not yet complete, and builds on a previous ITEST project, indicators of success student game...
Cognitive diagnostic like approaches using neural-network analysis of serious educational videogames
Computers & Education Vol. 70, No. 1 (January 2014) pp. 92–104
There has been an increase in student achievement testing focusing on content and not underlying student cognition. This is of concern as student cognition provided for a more generalizable analysis of learning. Through a cognitive diagnostic...
