Higher Education in Federal Countries: A Comparative Study
Higher Education in Federal Countries: A Comparative Study is a unique study of higher education in nine federal countries—the United States, Canada, Australia, Germany, Mexico, Brazil, Russia, China and India. In this book, leading international scholars discuss the role of federalism and how it shapes higher education in major nation-state actors on the world stage. The editors develop an overarching comparative analysis of the dynamics of central and regional power in higher education, and the national case studies explain how each federal and federal-like higher education system has evolved and how it functions in what are highly varied contexts.
The book makes a major contribution to higher education studies and defines a new field of comparative analysis. It also provides important insights into comparative governance and the study of federalism and federal arrangements, with their particular historical, political, legal and economic dimensions.

Using worked examples to support problem solving of legal cases in an inductive instructional sequence
One way to reduce the cognitive load students feel during instruc-tion is to change the way content is delivered. This can be achieved by optimising the instructional sequence and providing sufficient instructional support during problem-solving. However, the litera-ture is unclear regarding whether an inductive or a deductive instructional sequence is best for processing information. Using an experimental research design, this study compares a problem solving-first inductive sequence to a more traditional direct instruc-tion-first deductive instructional sequence in legal sciences by introducing worked-examples in the process of legal case-solving. The participants were graduate legal students who were divided into two groups and given either an inductive or deductive instruc-tional sequence of activities. The results showed that participants in the problem-solving-first inductive sequence performed better in all three dimensions of legal evaluation. This study demonstrates the efficacy of a problem-solving-first inductive sequence on stu-dents’ ability to process legal cases.

The Precision of Symbolic Numerical Representation in Verbal Format Has an Indirect Effect on Math Performance in First GradeNumerical information can be represented in three formats: two symbolic (visual (digits) and verbal (number words)) and one nonsymbolic (analog) format. Studies have shown that the precision of symbolic numerical representation is associated with math performance. The precision of symbolic representation is mostly discussed as the precision of representation in a visual format, whereas the precision of representation in verbal format and its relation with math performance is less studied. The current study examines the precision of symbolic numerical representation in visual and verbal formats and the relationship between such precision and math performance when controlling for prior math performance, nonsymbolic numerical representation, phonological processing, reading skills and working memory. We used data from 367 Russian first graders (mean age, 7.6 years; 53% girls). To assess the precision of symbolic numerical representation, magnitude comparison tasks with digits and number words were used. It was found that the precision of symbolic representation in verbal format did not have a direct effect on math performance, but has an indirect effect via visual format of symbolic representation, even when controlling for prior math performance and other cognitive abilities.
