The Application Of Little's Law To Enrollment Management: Improving Student Persistence In Part-Time Degree Programs, Ellen M. Walk, Lewis A. Litteral

Management Faculty Publications

Little’s Law is applied to enrollment management in part-time degree programs. Using institutional data by program, on number of graduates per year, as well as number of credits taken and number of active students per semester, the calculated average time to graduation is compared to the average flow time predicted by Little’s Law. Despite significant variability among students who enter with varying transfer credits and take varying credits per semester, Little’s Law provides a simple model for measuring program growth trends, student productivity, and persistence to graduation. Implications for marketing, admissions, advising, course scheduling, and curriculum design ...

Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy (MSBP), also known as “factitious disorder by proxy,” is a mental illness in which a person lies about the physical or mental well-being of a person he/she is responsible for (The Cleveland Clinic, 2008). Most often the dynamic transpires between a mother and her child. The motivation behind MSBP is that the adult seeks the attention typically given to those who are sick, and attempts to get the attention by causing or lying about illness in his/her child. MSBP is a type of child abuse and can result in long-term physical and psychological effects ...

Establishing Observer Reliability In The Context Of Dance Performance Assessment., Aspasia Dania, Maria Koutsouba, Dimitrios Hatziharistos, Vasiliki Tyrovola

Aspasia Dania

In the context of dance education, either as part of physical education or on its own, the assessment of dance performance is used as a benchmark of the students’ progress. Although reliability is a critical feature of this process, the majority of research projects are restricted in the lining up of reliability statistical indexes without giving guidelines for its establishment through sound training of the judges. The aim of the present paper is the presentation of the major issues and procedures of the judges’ training and reliability in a research project assessing the performance of Greek traditional dancers. The research ...

Reframing Student Affairs Practice, Rishi R. Sriram, Jesse Hines 2010 Baylor University

Reframing Student Affairs Practice, Rishi R. Sriram, Jesse Hines

Rishi Sriram, Ph.D.

The interdisciplinary nature of student affairs requires the integration and application of theories pertaining to higher education, management, and psychology. Each discipline offers a theory that can be synthesized by utilizing Bolman and Deal’s (2008) four frames. By thinking of their work environments in circles, student affairs managers and leaders can utilize a proposed model to help them know how to begin applying each of the four frames in practice.

This article analyzes the World University Ranking of the Times Higher Education, one of the most important and famous international rankings, with a special emphasis on the how this ranking has been designed and methodologically built up. Starting from a longitudinal study the authors analyze the regional distribution and the linguistic affinities, and the institutional mobility as well, including the variability of the first 200 universities in each edition of this ranking (between 2004 and 2009). Within this context the authors study more specifically how the universities of Latin America behave. And based on the previous reflections the Times Higher ...

Do Students Benefit From Attending Better Schools?: Evidence From Rule-Based Student Assignments In Trinidad And Tobago, Clement (Kirabo) Jackson 2010 Cornell University ILR School

Do Students Benefit From Attending Better Schools?: Evidence From Rule-Based Student Assignments In Trinidad And Tobago, Clement (Kirabo) Jackson

C. Kirabo Jackson

In Trinidad and Tobago students are assigned to secondary schools after fifth grade based on achievement tests, leading to large differences in the school environments to which students of differing initial levels of achievement are exposed. This paper uses instrumental variables based on the discontinuities created by the assignment mechanism, and exploits rich data which include the students’ test scores at entry and secondary school preferences to address self-selection bias. I find that attending a better school has large positive effects on examination performance at the end of secondary school. The effects are about twice as large for girls than ...
