New strategies for distinguishing between students who know and students who guess

Science
Dec. 28 (UPI) -- Research economists at the University of Leuven have developed new strategies for more accurately assessing the academic performance of students in online classes. According to their new paper on the subject -- published in the journal Heliyon -- there are a variety of problems with the assessments currently used for many so-called massive open online courses, or MOOCs. First, MOOC assessments generally feature too few questions. Tests featuring just 10 to 15 questions are insufficient, researchers argue. Additionally, the common use of multiple choice rewards guessing, distorting the test results. Finally, online tests used by MOOCs frequently rely on the same sets of answers, minimizing their ability to measure changes in knowledge as tests are updated. For solutions to...

You’d Never Guess These Chocolate-Chia Popsicles Were Made With White Beans

Health
The recipe is super simple, and packed with nutrients. I love creating recipes that include unexpected ingredients. That’s why I had so much fun developing and testing recipes for my newest book, Slim Down Now, which stars pulses. If you’re not familiar with word "pulses" in a culinary context, it’s the umbrella term for lentils, peas, chickpeas, and all types of beans. I love pulses because they’re naturally gluten-free, rarely a trigger when it comes to allergies or intolerances, and rich in nutrients (hello, protein, fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants!).Pulses also have a long list of health perks: Studies suggest that eating them regularly may help curb cholesterol, protect against certain cancers, improve athletic performanc...
