The Relationship Between Selected Independent Variables And The Level Of Job Satisfaction Of School Counselors: Implications For Administors And Policy Makers, Renee' Adenike Mcfarlane 2010 Clark Atlanta University

The Relationship Between Selected Independent Variables And The Level Of Job Satisfaction Of School Counselors: Implications For Administors And Policy Makers, Renee' Adenike Mcfarlane

ETD Collection for AUC Robert W. Woodruff Library

Many school counselors have not utilized their leadership opportunities because of role ambiguity in their position which leads to job dissatisfaction. The researcher believes that until school counselors can become more satisfied in their positions they will not operate as educational leaders. The primary purpose of the study was to identify if there was significant relationship between selected independent variables (school counselor demographics, school demographics, school counselor leadership attributes, principal leadership style. teacher-school counselor relationship, parent-school counselor relationship, school counselor recognition, and school counselor role responsibilities) and the level of job satisfaction of school counselors in a metropolitan Atlanta school ...


Complicating Students’ Historical Thinking Through Primary Source Reinvention, John H. Bickford III 2010 Eastern Illinois University

Complicating Students’ Historical Thinking Through Primary Source Reinvention, John H. Bickford Iii

Faculty Research and Creative Activity

To best challenge students’ thinking, researchers and educators must locate or create innovative ways to spark enthusiasm and facilitate criticality. This paper investigates how middle school students analyzed various primary and secondary historical documents to construct original political cartoons. Students articulated newly generated understandings about the complex historical event within these original political cartoons. Students then examined and discussed peers’ original political cartoons. This approach was novel because the research literature indicated students rarely are asked to construct original political cartoons to express opinions and understandings. Political cartoons mostly are used as tools for interpretation and usually only with gifted ...


Self-Regulatory Training For Helping Students With Special Needs To Learn Mathematics, Yanrong Kang 2010 University of Iowa

Self-Regulatory Training For Helping Students With Special Needs To Learn Mathematics, Yanrong Kang

Theses and Dissertations

Previous research suggests that self-regulation interventions are effective in improving students' self-regulatory skill and school performance in a wide variety of educational domains. Inspired by social cognitive theory (Schunk & Zimmerman, 1997) and goal setting theory (Locke & Latham, 1990), I designed, implemented, and examined the beneficial impact of a two-part intervention to teacher effective self-regulation (i.e., goal setting and self-reflection) of 62 high school students with special needs (40 males, 22 females) during in-class math instruction. Results indicate that the two-part intervention led to high self-efficacy judgments and to better math performance compared to students with special needs who were ...


The Impact Of Equating Method And Format Representation Of Common Items On The Adequacy Of Mixed-Format Test Equating Using Nonequivalent Groups, Sarah Lynn Hagge 2010 University of Iowa

The Impact Of Equating Method And Format Representation Of Common Items On The Adequacy Of Mixed-Format Test Equating Using Nonequivalent Groups, Sarah Lynn Hagge

Theses and Dissertations

Mixed-format tests containing both multiple-choice and constructed-response items are widely used on educational tests. Such tests combine the broad content coverage and efficient scoring of multiple-choice items with the assessment of higher-order thinking skills thought to be provided by constructed-response items. However, the combination of both item formats on a single test complicates the use of psychometric procedures. The purpose of this dissertation was to examine how characteristics of mixed-format tests and composition of the common-item set impact the accuracy of equating results in the common-item nonequivalent groups design.

Operational examinee item responses for two classes of data were considered ...

Literacy In Elementary School In Jamaica: The Case Of The Grade Four Literacy Test, Yewande Eleene Lewis

Theses and Dissertations

The purpose of this study is to describe changes that led to the revision of the Grade Four Literacy Test in Jamaica from a classroom-based assessment to a national high-stakes examination in 2009. Educators and researchers in Jamaica have observed and examined the less-than-desired student performance in English literacy exams over several decades. My research continues the tradition and adds to the investigation of literacy challenges in Jamaica. The overarching research question for this study was to understand how the Grade Four Literacy Test, originally a classroom-based assessment for a decade, became a national high-stakes exam in 2009? I used ...


When A Law Degree Is Not Enough: The Necessity Of A Second Professional Degree For Lawyers, Rebecca LeAnne Bowman 2010 University of Iowa

When A Law Degree Is Not Enough: The Necessity Of A Second Professional Degree For Lawyers, Rebecca Leanne Bowman

Theses and Dissertations

This research attempts to answer the question of why some attorneys obtain a second advanced degree after their law degree. That is, if a law degree is all that is needed to practice law, then why do some attorneys continue with their studies, especially since they lack an economic incentive to do so?

The research includes a literature review with background information on credentialism and human capital theory, on lawyers and law school, dissatisfaction, income and debt, alternatives to law, joint graduate degree programs, and gender. SPSS modeling is utilized to arrive at the conclusion that human capital theory and ...


"It's Raining Money": Identity, Class, And The Unfolding Curriculum At Three Schools Through The Lens Of Socioeconomic Status, Amy Lynn Pfeiler-Wunder 2010 University of Iowa

"It's Raining Money": Identity, Class, And The Unfolding Curriculum At Three Schools Through The Lens Of Socioeconomic Status, Amy Lynn Pfeiler-Wunder

Theses and Dissertations

Using a multilayered qualitative approach I draw from hermeneutical phenomenology informed by autoethnography through a case study to illuminate the culture and community of three elementary art rooms through the lens of socioeconomic status. Through my own story of having limited art education as a child from a rural working class background I simultaneously tell the story of students from three economically diverse schools in the same district. Focusing on their experiences within the space of the art room, I explore the ways children negotiate identity, notions of class, and interpret the shared district art curriculum.

A rich description of ...


Critical Incidents That Lead To Homelessness: Recommendations For Counselors, Ren Francis Stinson 2010 University of Iowa

Critical Incidents That Lead To Homelessness: Recommendations For Counselors, Ren Francis Stinson

Theses and Dissertations

This dissertation describes a qualitative investigation of two research questions: "What do homeless individuals perceive to be the critical incidents that led to their homelessness?" and "What do people who are homeless recommend for how counselors can help the homeless and individuals at risk of becoming homeless?" Twenty-five participants were recruited from an Iowa City homeless shelter and were interviewed using an interview protocol. Participants were asked to provide detailed accounts of critical incidents that led to their homelessness and recommendations for counselors who would be working with people who are homeless or at a risk of becoming homeless. The ...


How Do Doctoral Research Academics Perceive Their Research Activities To Be Of Benefit To Undergraduate Students, James McCauley 2010 Dublin Institute of Technology

How Do Doctoral Research Academics Perceive Their Research Activities To Be Of Benefit To Undergraduate Students, James Mccauley

Dissertations

The principal aim of my research is to investigate the perceptions of Doctoral research academics regarding the benefit of their research activities to undergraduate students. Through in-depth interviews, the research aims to establish the level of communication that Doctoral researchers initiate with their undergraduate students about their research activities as well as the extent to which they know if these students perceive these activities as positive or negative. The extent to which students proactively queried such academics about their research activities is also examined. Two main types of activities were identified as having a positive impact: topic specific ‘cutting-edge’ knowledge ...

Single Point Rubric: A Tool For Responsible Student Self-Assessment, Jarene Fluckiger 2010 University of Nebraska at Omaha

Single Point Rubric: A Tool For Responsible Student Self-Assessment, Jarene Fluckiger

Teacher Education Faculty Publications

Teachers who tap into the talents of each student involve students in goal setting and assessment of their own education. The single point rubric is an ethical tool to assist students with their responsibilities of goal setting and self-assessment of their own education. In this article, I describe key features of the single point rubric, how it is used, and how it is different from traditional multiple point rubrics. I also share some benefits of using single point rubrics along with suggestions of how to address concerns. Two sample, single point rubrics are provided.


The Effects Of Skill Training On Preference For Individuals With Severe To Profound Multiple Disabilities, Anuradha Salil Kumar Dutt 2010 University of Iowa

The Effects Of Skill Training On Preference For Individuals With Severe To Profound Multiple Disabilities, Anuradha Salil Kumar Dutt

Theses and Dissertations

Behavioral researchers have investigated procedures for identifying preferred items for individuals with varying levels of developmental disabilities. Some researchers in this area have reported difficulties in identifying preferred items for individuals with severe to profound multiple disabilities (SPMD), in part because the individuals may not possess the motor skills needed to select and manipulate the items included within the assessment. The purpose of the current study was to address three research questions: Would differences in preference patterns be observed if individuals with SPMD could activate toys with a motor response that is within their repertoire (i.e., press a large ...


Client-Rated Helpfulness Of Two Approaches For Addressing Religious Concerns In Therapy, Alice Fridman 2010 University of Iowa

Client-Rated Helpfulness Of Two Approaches For Addressing Religious Concerns In Therapy, Alice Fridman

Theses and Dissertations

Multicultural competence is widely considered to be an integral part of psychological research, theory, training, and effective as well as ethical practice. While some specific components of culture have received significant attention in multicultural literature and practice, religion remains an often-neglected component of culture, with little research, training, and practical guidelines available on the topic. The current study investigated potential therapy clients' perceptions of the helpfulness of two different therapist approaches to addressing religious concerns in order to identify the approach that clients find more helpful and promote its use in practice and training. One approach was characterized by basic ...

An Evaluation Of Motivating Operations In The Treatment Of Food Refusal, Melanie Hope Bachmeyer 2010 University of Iowa

An Evaluation Of Motivating Operations In The Treatment Of Food Refusal, Melanie Hope Bachmeyer

Theses and Dissertations

Previous research on the assessment of pediatric feeding disorders has shown that negative reinforcement (escape) plays a major role in the maintenance of food refusal and that escape extinction (EE) may be necessary in the treatment of severe food refusal. The current study examined the influence of two potential motivating operations (MOs) on escape from bite presentations for 3 children with severe food refusal: (a) noncontingent positive reinforcement (NCR) and (b) food satiation (as a result of enteral nutritional support). The abolishing effects of NCR on negative reinforcement for refusal behaviors were demonstrated in Experiment 1 when escape was allowed ...
