Teacher Absenteeism: An Examination Of Patterns And Predictors, Kristy Pitts 2010 Virginia Commonwealth University

Teacher Absenteeism: An Examination Of Patterns And Predictors, Kristy Pitts

Theses and Dissertations

Since the passage of the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) in 2001, public school systems have been engaged in a system of educational reform fueled by a level of accountability that includes not only the performance of the students, but also the performance of the teachers and the administrators. Recent studies have found that student achievement has been negatively impacted by teacher absenteeism; however, there have been scant studies conducted in the United States regarding teacher absence behaviors. The purpose of this study was to examine the teacher absence data of a school division in central Virginia in order ...


Enhancing Employment Opportunities For Indigenous Victorians : A Review Of The Literature, Nola Purdie, Tracey Frigo, Alison Stone, Wendy Dick 2010 ACER

Enhancing Employment Opportunities For Indigenous Victorians : A Review Of The Literature, Nola Purdie, Tracey Frigo, Alison Stone, Wendy Dick

Dr. Nola Purdie

This paper was completed under contract to the State of Victoria through the State Services Authority. It draws on recent Victorian, Australian, and international literature in order to provide an overview of the barriers to, and drivers of successful workforce participation for Indigenous Victorians. Some barriers and drivers are generic, and thus apply to most people; other barriers and drivers are specific to Indigenous Australians; a few barriers and drivers apply specifically to Indigenous Victorians. The disadvantage that accrues from Indigenous unemployment is unrelenting and immense. This disadvantage may well become worse as the Indigenous .baby boom. increasingly reaches working ...

Establishing Reliability Of Reading Comprehension Ratings Of Fifth-Grade Students' Oral Retellings, Laura Elizabeth Bernfeld 2010 Brigham Young University - Provo

Establishing Reliability Of Reading Comprehension Ratings Of Fifth-Grade Students' Oral Retellings, Laura Elizabeth Bernfeld

All Theses and Dissertations

The purpose of this study was to rate the oral retellings of fifth-grade students to determine to what degree passages, raters, and rating occasions affect those ratings, and to identify what combination of those elements will produce reliable retelling ratings. Thirty-six fourth-grade students read and orally retold three contemporary realistic fiction passages. Two raters rated these retellings on two separate occasions using the Reader Retelling Rating Scale. These ratings were analyzed quantitatively using generalizability software. Two research questions were answered by the generalizability (G) and decision (D) studies. The G study answers the first question regarding the percentages of the ...

Ele: Una Comunidad De Práctica Donde Se Puede Promover El Diálogo Colaborativo Sobre Temas Interculturales, Maria De Luna Villalón

Maria Eugenia De Luna Villalón

El diálogo colaborativo es una actividad que promueve la producción oral a través del compromiso activo y la participación constructiva.

The Effects Of Structural And Process Features Of Professional Development Programs On Teachers' Knowledge, Practice, And Efficacy, Lawrence Ingvarson, Marion Meiers, Adrian Beavis

Marion Meiers

This report examines effects of structural and process features of professional development programs on teachers' knowledge, practice and efficacy. It is based on four recent (2002-2003) studies undertaken through the Australian Government Quality Teacher Programme, designed to enhance teacher quality. The total data set for the survey study includes 3250 teachers who had participated in eighty individual professional development activities within these studies. Teachers were surveyed at least three months after participating in an activity, which provided them with the opportunity to gauge the impact of programs on their practice. To investigate factors affecting impact, a theoretical model was developed ...


A Longitudinal Study Of Growth In Literacy And Numeracy In The Primary School Years, Marion Meiers 2010 ACER

A Longitudinal Study Of Growth In Literacy And Numeracy In The Primary School Years, Marion Meiers

Marion Meiers

This paper reports on a seven-year longitudinal study. In 1998 an extensive investigation of the nature of growth in literacy and numeracy across the years of primary school was established at ACER as a national longitudinal study. It was intended that scales of developing literacy and numeracy achievement would be developed within this study, making it possible to show growth from the first year at school until the end of primary school.

Evaluating The Quality And Impact Of Professional Development Programs, Lawrence Ingvarson, Marion Meiers, Adrian Beavis

Marion Meiers (retired)

The purpose of this paper is to review recent work that ACER has been doing to improve the usefulness of evaluations of professional development programs. This work includes the development of research-based instruments to measure: the nature and quality of the processes used to promote teacher learning; the impact of programs on teacher knowledge, practice and student outcomes; the relationships between these process and impact measures. The paper is based on approaches developed as part of four recent evaluations of professional development programs. These include: three evaluations of the Commonwealth Government’s Quality Teacher Program, as implemented in three separate ...


Managing Longitudinal Research : An Account Of The First Six Years Of The Longitudinal Literacy And Numeracy Study, Marion Meiers 2010 ACER

Managing Longitudinal Research : An Account Of The First Six Years Of The Longitudinal Literacy And Numeracy Study, Marion Meiers

Marion Meiers

The ACER Longitudinal Literacy and Numeracy Study (LLANS) was designed to follow the growth in literacy and numeracy of a single cohort of students across the years of primary school. The key research question in this seven-year longitudinal study is: 'What is the nature of literacy and numeracy development amongst Australian school children?' One way of responding to this question is to develop scales describing growth in literacy and numeracy. As a national longitudinal study, the LLANS has created an opportunity to develop achievement scales describing growth in literacy and numeracy from the very first year of schooling. The LLANS ...

A Longitudinal Investigation Of Literacy Achievement And Development In The First Three Years Of School, Marion Meiers 2010 ACER

A Longitudinal Investigation Of Literacy Achievement And Development In The First Three Years Of School, Marion Meiers

Marion Meiers

This paper describes a longitudinal study of literacy development in the early years of schooling. Monitoring the development of children’s literacy learning in the early years of school poses challenges for educational researchers, including the need for appropriate strategies for identifying the full range of literacy knowledge and skills demonstrated by young learners. The seven-year national ACER Longitudinal Literacy and Numeracy Study (LLANS) followed the growth in literacy of a single cohort of students across the years of primary school (Meiers, Khoo et al, 2006). A key research question in this study was: “What is the nature of literacy ...

Growth In Literacy And Numeracy In The First Three Years Of School., Marion Meiers, Siek Toon Khoo, Ken Rowe, Andrew Stephanou, Prue Anderson, Kathy Nolan

Marion Meiers (retired)

This report describes the findings from the first three years of the ACER longitudinal Literacy and Numeracy Study (LLANS). The longitudinal study was established in 1999 in a context in which there was significant national interest in improving achievement in literacy and numeracy for all Australian children, and a particular interest in the development of foundational skills in the early years of school. A nation wide sample of 100 schools was selected in proportion to the population of each state and territory and ten students were randomly selected from each of these schools. This provided a cohort for LLANS of ...
