Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Social science
  • Pedagogy
  • Mathematics education

Her main research concerns Mathematics education, Educational psychology, Pedagogy, Epistemology and Knowledge level. When carried out as part of a general Mathematics education research project, her work on Academic achievement and Learner centered is frequently linked to work in Base, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. Patricia A. Alexander has researched Educational psychology in several fields, including School psychology, Social psychology, Learning theory, Terminology and Cognitive science.

Her research in the fields of Literacy and College instruction overlaps with other disciplines such as Perspective and Structural equation modeling. Her Epistemology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Reciprocal, Metacognition, DUAL and Information literacy. Her Knowledge level study incorporates themes from Recall, Educational research, Subject matter knowledge, Reading comprehension and Domain knowledge.

Her most cited work include:

  • Coming to Terms: How Researchers in Learning and Literacy Talk About Knowledge (560 citations)
  • A Motivated Exploration of Motivation Terminology. (556 citations)
  • The Interaction of Domain-Specific and Strategic Knowledge in Academic Performance: (493 citations)
