Identifying Student Perceptions: The Effect Of Parent-Child Relationships On Attitudes Towards Academic Abilities, Heather Gifford 2010 Boise State University

Identifying Student Perceptions: The Effect Of Parent-Child Relationships On Attitudes Towards Academic Abilities, Heather Gifford

McNair Scholars Research Journal

This study expands on research that identifies the many negative effects poor parent-child relationships can have on children by examining how these disadvantages continue into children’s young-adult lives and influence attitudes and confidence levels towards success. This study will focus on young-adult, college students and will specifically consider their attitudes and confidence levels towards achieving self-defined, academic success. The purpose of this research is to determine if participants with weak parent-child relationship face more academic disadvantages due to lower levels of confidence and development of derogatory attitudes towards their capability to achieve in order to identify potential educational disparities ...


Critical Literacy: Changing The World Through The Word, Martha S. Mendoza 2010 Boise State University

Critical Literacy: Changing The World Through The Word, Martha S. Mendoza

McNair Scholars Research Journal

This study analyzes the role that children’s literature plays in acquiring critical tools and deconstructing the internalized sense of worthlessness and oppression that Latinos living in poverty might experience. The goal is to provide literacy spaces and critical tools for both, teachers and students from marginalized and oppressed backgrounds, as Paulo Freire and Donaldo Macedo suggest, to become aware of one’s reality and act upon our world. This intends to engage students in dialogue and reflection, in order to critically analyze and understand issues of social, economic and political injustice and inequities; and deconstruct their internalized sense of ...

K-12 Virtual Schools, Accreditation, And Leadership: What Are The Issues?, Trudy A. Salsberry

Educational Considerations

When I was young, I attended my neighborhood school. It was a square brick building with three floors and was situated on a corner just five blocks from my home. That building was torn down not long ago, and I asked my family to save a brick from that building to remind me of all the experiences I had there learning to read, use math, discover other countries, understand basic scientific principles, and communicate.


Statistical Retention Analysis Of Enrollment Data At Carroll College, Dustin Dickerson 2010 Carroll College, Helena, MT

Statistical Retention Analysis Of Enrollment Data At Carroll College, Dustin Dickerson

Mathematics, Engineering and Computer Science Undergraduate Theses

Organizations around the world hire operations scientists and data analysts to ensure their resources are being used to their maximum potential. Colleges and universities are no exceptions. Admissions offices, in particular, store incredible amounts of data about students who attend their institution. This data includes, but is not limited to, high school GPA, SAT and ACT scores, sex, ethnicity, age, household income, and intended major. What schools hope to learn from this data is two-fold: 1. What kind of student is the school most likely/unlikely to retain until graduation? 2. How effective are new retention programs? Knowing what student ...


Academic Performance Of Native And Transfer Students, John M. Krieg 2010 Western Washington University

Academic Performance Of Native And Transfer Students, John M. Krieg

Office of Survey Research

In the Fall quarter of 2009, Western Washington University enrolled about 900 transfer students, one-third of the incoming freshmen class that quarter. More transfers were later admitted in the winter and spring quarters. Given the large numbers of transfer students attending Western and the likelihood of increased reliance upon transfers in the future, it is important to understand what, if any, performance differences exist between transfer and native students. This report compares academic success of natives and transfers using two measures: grades earned after achieving 90 credits and earning a Western degree. In order to make as precise comparisons as ...
