Don't throw away your printed books: A meta-analysis on the effects of reading media on reading comprehension

Publication date: Available online 15 September 2018Source: Educational Research ReviewAuthor(s): Pablo Delgado, Cristina Vargas, Rakefet Ackerman, Ladislao SalmerónAbstractWith the increasing dominance of digital reading over paper reading, gaining understanding of the effects of the medium on reading comprehension has become critical. However, results from research comparing learning outcomes across printed and digital media are mixed, making conclusions difficult to reach. In the current meta-analysis, we examined research in recent years (2000-2017), comparing the reading of comparable texts on paper and on digital devices. We included studies with between-participant (n = 38) and within-participant designs (n = 16) involving 171,055 participants. Both designs yielded the same advantage of paper over digital reading (Hedge’s g = -.21; dc = -.21). Analyses revealed three significant moderators: (1) time frame: the paper-based reading advantage increased in time-constrained reading compared to self-paced reading; (2) text genre: the paper-based reading advantage was consistent across studies using informational texts, or a mix of informational and narrative texts, but not on those using only narrative texts; (3) publication year: the advantage of paper-based reading increased over the years. Theoretical and educational implications are discussed.

This study aimed at determining the performance of health information management departments (HIMD) to identify the policies of these hospitals, their similarities, and differences in their procedures in this respect. Managers of the departments and information disclosure and medical record staff in 22 teaching hospitals were invited to complete a questionnaire regarding their practices in four axes including confidentiality principles, principles of disclosure consent, disclosure information to external and internal users. We found that there are no specific national framework and guidelines for the disclosure of health i...

Authors: Zechmeister M, Endel F Abstract In Austria, there is no single source of truth holding information about all physicians and their medical practice. Therefore, different sources have to be combined to accumulate detailed information about doctors, identify data errors and increase overall data quality. The aim of this project is to link two datasets from vastly different origins utilizing reproduceable and mostly automatic procedures in contrast to manually acquired links in the past. As there is no global identifier, names and addresses of the doctors were used instead. Because of different spellings and t...

In this study we explore machine learning approaches to infection severity recognition on driveline exit site images. We apply a U-net convolutional neural network (CNN) for driveline tube segmentation, resulting in a Dice score coefficient of 0.95. A classification CNN is trained to predict the membership of one out of three infection classes in photographs. The resulting accuracy of 67% in total is close to the measured expert level performance, which indicates that also for human experts there may not be enough information present in the photographs for accurate assessment. We suggest the inclusion of thermographic imag...

Authors: Veeranki SPK, Kramer D, Hayn D, Jauk S, Eggerth A, Quehenberger F, Leodolter W, Schreier G Abstract Adoption of electronic medical records in hospitals generates a large amount of data. Health care professionals can easily lose their sight on the important insights of the patients' clinical and medical history. Although machine learning algorithms have already proved their significance in healthcare research, remains a challenge translation and dissemination of fully automated prediction algorithms from research to decision support at the point of care. In this paper, we address the effect of changes in th...
