Eleven Literature Reviews Literature Review Chapter

… More and more attention is being placed on evidence-based programs instead of attention-based programs. Although drug intervention programs receive the most support and attention, it lacks significant research to prove its efficacy. Instead, officials are beginning to support other programs such as obesity-related programs that prove efficacy in alleviating issues presented by students. Shrinking budgets and ineffective results provide a changing environment in support of evidence-based programs. Petrosino argues that programs should meet these requirements, but fail to because of source of funding which at times is based on popularity.

In the article written by Galea (2013), the author discussed implementation of randomized drug testing in some states as "part of a drug prevention policy" (Galea, 2013). Galea wrote on the lack of data present…. [read more]


American Public Education System Term Paper

… Although many authorities endorse this direction toward inclusive assessment and accountability (Elliott, 1997; Kleinert et al., 1997; Sailor, 1997; United States Department of Education, 1995; Ysseldyke et al., 1996), sorting out, on a national scale, all of the conceptual and logistical issues involved in making instructionally valid accommodations to regular assessments, and designing appropriate alternate assessments for students with more severe disabilities, represent a task of immense proportions.

Indeed, research is limited on whether performance-based assessments translate into significant positive changes in instructional practice for students without disabilities. When writing portfolios were included as a part of large-scale assessments for students in Vermont and Pittsburgh, teachers reported that they liked the portfolios and that they integrated the new assessment activities into their daily classroom instruction….

Nebosh Unit Essay

… Another important universal responsibility of commercial shopping centres involves training staff in emergency evacuation procedures. Emergency evacuation plans must be clearly communicated and displayed in order to clearly demarcate emergency exit areas. Fire safety equipment should be tested regularly under an appropriate maintenance contract. Without a top-down enforcement from senior management there is often a passive attitude in regards to conducting due diligence in fire safety and related OHS matters.

Legal Considerations

There are severe liability issues that senior management is taking too lightly. The HSE conducts three main forms of regulation - guidance (not compulsory, but aimed at helping businesses comply with the law), approved codes of practice (emphasis on best practices and ways businesses can avoid dangers due to not providing relevant provisions….

Standardized Testing -- Students Article Review

… It also seems questionable that notwithstanding some studies involved college students and others involved only adults (some well beyond college aged individuals), both of those age groups "…were collapsed into a single group labeled adults" (Frazier). It is also interesting that the larger the samples (whether heterogeneous or epidemiological), the greater the effect on ADHD sufferers; and the smaller the sample (that zeroed in on clinical, empirical research), the smaller the effect of ADHD (Frazier). This seems like a possible flaw in the method. Another threat to the validity of the findings is that the researchers did not "…exclude individuals with comorbid LD" (Frazier).

As to the second study, it is impressive that researchers went to the trouble to use questionnaires for both the ADHD…. [read more]

Identify the statistical analyses you will utilize for your exam and provide your rationale for your choice.



The statistical analyses that will be used for the exam will involve statistical methods for analyzing quantitative data. Although it seems easy, it actually is a bit complicated. To begin, it is important to define the measure of the mid-point of a Gaussian, bell-shaped, or normal distribution of grades. This is what is known as the mode/modal point (Parkes & Zimmaro, 2016). The mode/modal point is the score received by the greatest quantity of students that took the exam. The median is the number taken by the middle score of the group of students…. [read more]


Moore and Kearsley How Distance Teaching Differs Thesis

… Moore & Kearsley

How Distance Teaching Differs

While there have been many articles and discussions about distance education from the students point-of-view and some discussion about quality, effectiveness and verifiability, Moore and Kearsly take the approach from the teachers point-of-view and bring up some relevant issues, both pro and con, regarding the subject. They begin by making not of the differences between live classroom learning as opposed to distance learning:

If you are teaching by television, you have to learn how to behave on camera; in front of the radio or audio conference microphone, to control (but vary) your rate and pitch of speaking; but correspondence or online, to interpret what the student writes and be able to write back "instructively" without overextending the time….

Reauthorization of the Higher Education Act

In higher education, one new privacy and security policy that is being talked about in 2009 is how to verify the identity of online students. The U.S. Department of Education, regional accreditors, colleges, universities and trade associations are resolving how to implement a new federal policy requiring steps to verify the identity of online students. There has always been a natural question in distance education of how do you know who's doing the work for the credit. It's not like retail banking or video rental with a shipping address. Education's value comes from the course work and interactions during classes, ultimately expressed in a degree granted for fulfilling the requirements of a program (Methods to Verify the….

Future of Education in USA Term Paper

… Student Centered Teaching

Progressivism, Social Reconstructionism and Existentialism vs." Essentialism and Perennialism

The face of the American educational system has been changing dramatically over the past several decades. Since the inception of standardized education in the U.S., the fabric of society itself has undergone dramatic changes. Yet, the educational system continues to promote the paradigms that prevailed since the systems very beginning. It can be argued that the system is in need of some dramatic changes if we are to compete in a world where globalization means coping with increasing competition. This research will explore teacher centered and student centered philosophies. It will support the hypothesis that student centered philosophies benefit the student more than teacher centered philosophies.

Standardized education was developed on teacher-centered philosophies.…. [read more]

Career Course Term Paper

… Student retention has long been a concern for colleges and universities. In 1924, W.S. Brooks' article, "Who Can Succeed in College," admonished "college men" for "this wholesale dropping of students." The high school students graduate with high aspirations and then are massed at registration and crowded into classes. After four months, the college sends hundreds of them home -- disgraced and "branded as failures." They start a second choice of activity, but with a feeling of personal failure.

Since these challenges by Brooks, the national rate of student departure from colleges and universities across the U.S. has remained constant at approximately 45% (Tinto, 1982). In addition, Tinto (1993, p. 82) approximates that academic dismissals account for 15 to 25% of these departures. The present track…. [read more]

Main Characteristics of Good Teaching Thesis

… ¶ … Teaching

Characteristics and difficulties of teaching a distance learning course

Even for a fairly unmotivated student, the human, one-on-one interactive nature of the classroom environment can prove to be profoundly motivating. This is one reason why, for 'at risk' students ensuring their continued attendance in class is such an important aspect of the educational process. If the students 'show up' a teacher can then energize their interest in learning through his or her charismatic presence. Although a distance learning teacher may not like to admit it, for many students, learning at a distance can feel like not being in class at all. Motivating students is a critical concern of the online pedagogical process online from day one. While some online students, because of…. [read more]


Different Preferences in Learning Between American and French Learners in a Multinational Corporate Setting Dissertation

… ¶ … Preferences in Learning between American and French Learners in a Multinational Corporate Setting

The way training is delivered in a corporate environment has a tremendous effect on results. This study investigates the role of culture in the learning styles of adult French and American students enrolled in online training programs at an international university. Using Kolb's learning style inventory, the learning style preferences of respondents in both cultural groups will be classified as divergers, convergers, accommodators, and assimilators, reflecting their general tendencies toward learning environments as conceptualized by Kolb (1985). The assumption is that Americans prefer to learn from action-oriented methods and are more comfortable learning from activities that are not job related, such as role plays and games, than do their French….

Distance Education in Assessing the Strengths Thesis

… Distance Education

In assessing the strengths and weaknesses of various forms of distance education and its progression from manually-oriented approaches to electronically-enabled teaching platforms, it is clear that Chere Campbell Gibson's vision of how information enables greater long-term learning is happening today. At the center of Gibson's vision of learning is the opportunity for students to get away from rote memorization and engage in problem solving through interdisciplinary experiences. Ultimately technology can be an enabler of greater learning and the potential of giving students the flexibility of creating knowledge as well, and this is the catalyst of Chere Campbell Gibson's view of technology as an enabler of more effective teaching and learning. The intent of this paper is to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of…. [read more]

Standardized, National Testing Is Implemented Term Paper

… From a theoretical point-of-view, what these evaluations are doing are grading the match-quality of two sets of variables -- those within the examinations, and those within the student taking the examinations. Again, these are limiting factors when the initial desire is to determine the person's abilities on a grander scale. And, unfortunately, if the students taking these tests score highly, the tests themselves show off as successful products, despite what it is they are assessing. If the test works, it is looked upon, by those who are viewing the results with greatest interest, as rating high on a scale of validity. However, if a student scores poorly on the test, it is then determined that the student is faulty and has a particular weakness in…. [read more]
