Using MRI measurements of the brain's neural connections, or 'white matter,' UW researchers have shown that, in struggling readers, the neural circuitry strengthened -- and their reading performance improved -- after just eight weeks of a specialized tutoring program.
There has been a significant increase in diversity of students entering the University of Otago's health professional programmes in recent years, especially among Maori and Pacific students and those from rural areas.
While tuition inflation presents a challenge for many college-bound students, an area of growing concern for many universities is 'grade inflation' -- in part caused when instructors grade more leniently to discourage students from retaliating by giving low teaching evaluations.
