Edited by: Oon-Seng Tan and Alice Seok-Hoon Seng
Published by Cengage Learning Asia
Various cognitive modifiability research studies and programs, presented in this book, clearly demonstrate how such positive changes and development can occur. These innovative and effective approaches are grounded in cognitive theories. The accounts of these studies were written to provide valuable information on educational interventions and the dynamic learning process important for academic achievement.
This book adopts the multidisciplinary approach with contributions from several well-known research institutions. The discussions are structured under two parts: cognitive modifiability in learning and cognitive modifiability in assessment. Each part provides a set of studies with examples from the laboratory as well as from longitudinal studies. The contributors are from an international pool of highly experienced and qualified researchers and practitioners.
