2 PhD studentships at Erasmus University Rotterdam

In the practice of education, tests are mostly used for assessment purposes only. However, research in cognitive psychology has demonstrated that the memory for tested information is also strengthened by the retrieval process during the test. This so-called ‘testing effect’ implies that testing information can provide a long-term benefit over restudying the same information and can prevent memory decay for learned information. The research projects “The power of self-testing for comprehension” (Project 1) and “Optimizing test-enhanced learning in an educationally relevant context: The influence of retention interval, learner expertise, and feedback” (Project 2) are both aimed at applying the testing effect to education, especially to learning from texts. Project 1 focuses on the question whether tests can enhance both long-term retention as well as comprehension of texts. Project 2 focuses on the question when and en how often tests should be used to prevent the forgetting of learned information.

The two PhD candidates will closely collaborate in their research projects. Also, the candidates will be employed as tutors for courses in the field of cognitive psychology, educational psychology and/or research methodology.

Your profile

Master's degree in Cognitive Psychology or Educational Psychology, or a related field
Excellent research and writing skills and experience with experimental research (preferably in applied settings)
Excellent mastery of both written and spoken English

Two Postdocs at Berkeley



The Graduate School of Education (GSE) at the University of California, Berkeley, is seeking two fulltime postdoctoral fellows to work with Sophia Rabe-Hesketh and Mark Wilson in the Quantitative Methods and Evaluation (QME) Program. The fellowships are funded by the Institute of Education Studies (US Dept. of Education). Fellows will advance their methodological expertise and conduct research in critical areas of educational practice. They can participate in a range of existing projects associated with the QME Program and the Berkeley Evaluation and Assessment Research (BEAR) Center, and they may also initiate their own projects. We currently have ongoing projects on the development and evaluation of assessment systems, including assessments of the reading comprehension skills of middle-school students, statistical reasoning by middle school students, science knowledge among upper elementary school students, and entry-level elementary school teachers' pedagogic content knowledge. We also have current projects investigating the effects of educational interventions on student outcomes, including an evaluation of different professional development designs for science teachers, a comparison of different instructional practices in math education, and estimation of the benefits of attending preschool. In all these projects, the research conducted by the postdoctoral fellows can either have a relatively stronger substantive focus or be more methodological in nature. Postdoctoral fellows will be able to take courses on measurement, evaluation, and statistics within the GSE and across the campus. During the fellowship period, we will invite experts in research methodology to hold workshops and interact directly with the postdoctoral fellows.
