The Role of Corrective Feedback in Oral Production
Lejla Dorić, 2018, master's thesis

Abstract: Foreign language learners make several errors when it comes to instant oral production and one of the crucial qualities of a good teacher is to know when and how to correct them without distracting or discouraging learners from future oral production. The main objective of this master’s thesis is to research different correction techniques and test them on primary school children. Another objective is to evaluate what kind of impact delayed and immediate feedback has on them. This paper is set as a case study based on eight primary school children, whom we thought and observed for a whole school year. All of them differ substantially in intelligibility, personality, learning styles and age. Moreover, as the second method of collecting data a structured interview was used. The main findings of this paper indicate that learners' view on error correction differs substantially from teachers’ beliefs. All learners want to be corrected by immediate feedback; however, some prefer covert methods. They all appreciate a chance to correct themselves, rather than being given the correct answer immediately after they make a mistake. To our surprise, learners are not bothered by immediate feedback. More uptake is shown when they are corrected immediately than after some delay. They dislike delayed feedback, since they tend to forget the errors they made and the feedback seems irrelevant to them.
Keywords: corrective feedback, correcting oral errors, immediate feedback, delayed feedback, covert methods.

Students' behavioral intentions regarding the future use of quantitative research methods
Polona Tominc, Maruša Krajnc, Klavdija Vivod, Monty L. Lynn, Blaž Frešer, 2018, original scientific article

Abstract: Changes regarding the importance of graduates’ competences by employers and changes of competences themselves are to a great extend driven by the technological changes, digitalization, and big data. Among these competences, the ability to perform business and data analytics, based on statistical thinking and data mining, is becoming extremely important. In this paper, we study the relationships among several constructs that are related to attitudes of economics and business students regarding quantitative statistical methods and to students’ intention to use them in the future. Findings of our research provide important insights for practitioners, educators, lecturers, and curricular management teams.
Keywords: students' behavioral intentions, quantitative statistical methods

Translational and personalized medicine
Krešimir Pavelić, Tamara Martinović, Sandra Kraljević-Pavelić, 2015, original scientific article

Abstract: The idea behind personalized medicine is to tailor health care to an individual’s unique genetic makeup. Hitherto, “one size fits all” approach was used in medicine. With the rise of personal medicine, we are moving towards a more precise, predictable and powerful medicine that is customized for each individual patient. To allow for an improvement in the acceleration and efficacy of drug development, high-throughput methods (“omics”) are rapidly being developed. This leads to understanding of multiple factors that are involved in disease progress on an individual level. In order to analyze the great amount of data that is collected from such experiments, one has to turn to systems biology, an interdisciplinary science that studies complex interactions within a biological system. Finally, translational medicine comes into play, by “translating” the information gathered from research into diagnostic tools, medicines and policies, with the final goal of improving individuals’ health. Personalized medicine is one of the future, and it will revolutionize the current practice of diagnosis-based medicine, once fully developed.

Book of abstracts of the 2nd International Scientific Conference Teaching Methods for Economics and Business Sciences, 7. May 2018, Maribor, Slovenia
2018, other monographs and other completed works

Abstract: Today’s global business environment is faced with complex and multidisciplinary issues. As business schools educate new generations of business people who will need to deal with these issues, the teachers at these institutions need to constantly innovate their teaching methods and approaches in order to pass relevant knowledge about business practices, processes and environments to their students. New, innovative approaches to teaching economics- and business-related subjects are thus essential to spark our students' curiosity and innovativeness and to develop their professional competences and skills so that our graduates, once employed, will have a positive impact on the economy as well as on the society. This book presents the abstracts of the 2nd International Scientific Conference »Teaching Methods for Economics and Business Sciences« held on 7 May 2018 at the University of Maribor, Faculty of Economics and Business. I would like to express my thanks to all authors who submitted their work for this conference in our common response to the above challenges.

Use of a Perth sand penetrometer (PSP) device to determine the engineering parameters of sands
S. D. Mohammadi, 2016, original scientific article

Abstract: Determining the in-situ engineering parameters of sandy soils has always been a challenge for geotechnical engineers, resulting in several methods having been developed so far. The Perth Sand Penetrometer (PSP) test is one of the most versatile of these methods. It is a considerably faster and cheaper tool than boring equipment, especially when the depth of the exploration is moderate. In the present research, a methodology for the use of a PSP device to evaluate the engineering parameters of sandy soils in laboratory conditions is discussed and the repeatability of the test results is studied. First of all, the tests were performed on typical Tehran young alluvial deposits (poorly graded sandy soil, SP) consistently prepared to 5 densities using the sand raining or pluviation technique. Next, the normal and logNormal distributions of the test data using the Kolmogorov-Smirnov normality test were examined. After that, based on the obtained results, the relationship types between the dynamic point resistance index (qd) and other parameters, such as the relative density (Dr), the modulus of elasticity (E), the shear modulus (G) and the friction angle of the soil, were determined. The results show that the obtained relationships were semi-logarithmic and logarithmic, and most of the obtained experimental formulas had a high coefficient of determination (>90%). To evaluate the accuracy of the results, 95% confidence and prediction bands were also used and the results show that all the obtained experimental relationships were appropriate. Finally, the repeatability of the test results was evaluated by calculating the coefficient of variations, which was less than 30% for all the tests.
Keywords: dynamic-point resistance index (qd), engineering parameters, repeatability, statistical methods
