Evaluation In Computer-Assisted Language Learning, Benjamin L. McMurry 2012 Brigham Young University - Provo

Evaluation In Computer-Assisted Language Learning, Benjamin L. Mcmurry

All Theses and Dissertations

Evaluation of Computer-assisted language learning (CALL) needs to be scrutinized according to the same standards of evaluation as other professional materials. Evaluation can be divided into two distinct, yet similar, categories: formal (following a prescribed evaluation model) and informal. The aim of this dissertation is two-fold. The first purpose is to benefit the field of CALL by situating CALL evaluation in the context of frameworks used formal evaluation. The second purpose is to discover informal evaluation practices of CALL practitioners. First, with regard to formal evaluation of CALL materials, practices and insights from the field of evaluation would help CALL ...


Scaling-Up And Rooting-Down: A Case Study Of North-South Partnerships For Health From Tanzania, J. Hope Corbin, Maurice B. Mittelmark, Gro Th. Lie 2012 Western Washington University

Scaling-Up And Rooting-Down: A Case Study Of North-South Partnerships For Health From Tanzania, J. Hope Corbin, Maurice B. Mittelmark, Gro Th. Lie

Woodring College of Education

Background: North-South Partnership (NSP) is the mandated blueprint for much global health action. Northern partners contribute funding and expertise and Southern partners contribute capacity for local action. Potential Northern partners are attracted to Southern organizations that have a track record of participating in well-performing NSPs. This often leads to the rapid ‘scaling up’ of the Southern organization’s activities, and more predictable and stable access to resources. Yet, scaling up may also present challenges and threats, as the literature on rapid organization growth shows. However, studies of the impact of scaling up within NSPs in particular are absent from the ...


Supporting Utah's Parents In Preventing Adolescent Suicide: A Literature Review And Handouts For Utah's Youth Suicide Prevention Manual, Jennifer L. Whicker 2012 Brigham Young University - Provo

Supporting Utah's Parents In Preventing Adolescent Suicide: A Literature Review And Handouts For Utah's Youth Suicide Prevention Manual, Jennifer L. Whicker

All Theses and Dissertations

Suicide, a public health problem on a global scale, has become the focus in many domains across the United States. With the recent push to provide solutions to the adolescent suicide rate in the U.S., the school setting has become an important venue for prevention and intervention efforts. While there are many risk and protective factors, the majority of suicide completions are concurrent with psychiatric disorders among adolescents; as such, this is an area that warrants further investigation. Additionally, school resources are often overwhelmed by the magnitude of need among the student population; therefore, effective interventions must be identified ...

After Two Decades Of Structural Adjustment Programmes (Saps) Implementation In Africa; Is It Better-Off?, Conrad John Masabo Mr.

Conrad John Masabo Mr.

The Global South and African continent in particular continue to suffer from economic, political and social hardships despite of the implementation of the Bretton Woods Institutions policies and particularly the IMF-guided ‘stabilization’ and debt-conditional ‘structural adjustment’ programmes (SAPs) for the last two decades or so. Today SAPs are sapping Africa in a manner that leaves a lot to be asked such as “how effective have the SAPs worked for Africa?” and “what have the stabilization policies stabilized in Africa?” May be towards making Africa dependant continent and a continent that cannot do away of its socio-political and economic problems. Today ...

A Nerche Annual Report: Profiles Of Public Engagement: Findings From The Ernest A. Lynton Award For The Scholarship Of Engagement For Early Career Faculty, John Saltmarsh, Elaine C. Ward, Patti H. Clayton

John Saltmarsh

Community-campus engagement has evolved significantly over the past quarter century, shaped by a number of factors. One has been the effort to reclaim the civic mission of American higher education. Frank Newman, while at the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching in the early 1980s, asserted that "the most critical demand is to restore to higher education its original purpose of preparing graduates for a life of involved and committed citizenship,” and concluded that “the advancement of civic learning, therefore, must become higher education's most central goal" (1985, xiv). Another factor has been the increased understanding that colleges ...


Using Eighth Grade Georgia Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests To Predict Student Achievement On The Georgia End Of Course Tests, Janice Darnell 2012 Liberty University

Using Eighth Grade Georgia Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests To Predict Student Achievement On The Georgia End Of Course Tests, Janice Darnell

Doctoral Dissertations and Projects

The purpose of this correlational study was to examine Georgia's Criterion-Referenced Competency Test (CRCT) scores of 8th grade students and End of Course Test (EOCT) scores of the same students as 9th graders in the areas of language arts and mathematics to test the theory that a relationship exists between the two tests. The study also examined the 8th grade CRCT scores as being predictors of the 9th grade EOCT scores. Three cycles, or classes, of 8th grade CRCT scores and corresponding EOCT scores were used. The study used data from a small semi-rural school district in northeast Georgia ...

Sentence Recall In Monolingual And Ell With And Without Parental Concerns About Language Development, Areej Mazin Balilah 2012 The University of Western Ontario

Sentence Recall In Monolingual And Ell With And Without Parental Concerns About Language Development, Areej Mazin Balilah

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

Sentence recall has been identified as a potential clinical marker of Specific Language Impairment (SLI). The extent to which sentence recall may be useful in distinguishing children with SLI from English Language Learners (ELL) has not been examined. Despite tapping existing language knowledge, sentence recall may be sufficiently sensitive to reveal differences between these groups. In the present study, 1253 school age children completed a sentence recall task and their parents declared whether their first language was English and whether there were any concerns about language development. Given the lack of a gold standard in identifying language impairment in bilingual ...

Record Book Of The Erodelphian And Diagnothian Literary Societies At Marshall Academy And Marshall College 1855-1861, Jack L. Dickinson

Jack L Dickinson

This record book of the early debating societies at Marshall Academy and early Marshall College (Diagnothian Literary Society and Erodelphian Literary Society) is important for multiple reasons: (1) it is the earliest primary source on Marshall Academy (1855-1857) housed in the Marshall Archives that mentions student names; (2) it definitely confirms that there were female students at Marshall Academy before 1858; (3)it contains the only known three handwritten issues of the Marshall College Gazette (early college newspaper) for 1879. From the minutes of the debating societies we have extracted a student list for 1855-1857, a student list for 1861 ...

The paper will further observe the influences of gender on the teacher–student relationship, as well as the impact that this relationship has on student academic outcomes and behaviour. Teacher–student relationships have been found to have immeasurable effects on students’ learning and their schooling experience. This paper examines the ways in which educators should plan to improve their interactions with students, in ...


The Teaching Of Food Technology In Nsw Schools, Angela Turner, Kurt Seemann 2012 Southern Cross University

The Teaching Of Food Technology In Nsw Schools, Angela Turner, Kurt Seemann

Kurt W Seemann

This paper presents findings from a recent Australian study that investigated perceptions of 'food technology' by teachers in secondary schools compared to a wider professional view. While 'food technology' has been well established in most Australian secondary school curricula, a contradiction has emerged between the 'school view' of the Food Technology label and the 'professional view' of the same. The use of identical language to describe different approaches is causing a significant problem for the food profession. A framework known as Technacy Genre Theory was used to analyse data from a survey of 382 relevant stakeholders to define the nature ...
