- LEARNING RESEARCH:The Role of Immigration Background
Contributions by Petra STANAT, Alexandra SHAJEK/Oliver LÜDTKE/Petra STANAT und Oliver WALTER u.a.. The existing research is less than satisfactory, particularly with the regard to the effectiveness of special support measures. Also the results from multiple group structural equation models show that immigrant students have more negative verbal and more positive mathematical self-concepts than their peers from native families. Depending on students' immigrant status, their gender, their competency level and the domain, students have cross-curricular competencies that are at a higher level than their competencies in the main domain of PISA.

Summary: Several theoretical approaches explain questioning and provide evidence that qustion asking requires a considerable amount of prerequisite knowledge as well as metacognitive skills. Empirical studies indicate that learners' questions generally habe positive effects in learning outcomes. A bunch of studies shows that question asking can be trained in classromm successfully. Unfortunately the possibilities seem to be used scarely at universities and schools. (Look at 'learning to learn' obove!)
