Academic Readiness For College: The Role Of School Administrators, Chul Lee, Eunyoung Kim 2009 Seton Hall University

Academic Readiness For College: The Role Of School Administrators, Chul Lee, Eunyoung Kim

Eunyoung Kim

The study utilized the National Education Longitudinal Study of 1988 (NELS:88) to identify which characteristics of academically effective high schools are key determinants of students' academic readiness for college. A multilevel analysis shows that high school characteristics affect student preparation for college in four core subject areas: reading, math, science, and history. In addition, prior academic achievement is the strongest predictor of academic readiness, followed by high school socioeconomic status and high school climate. Results indicate that students attending schools where academics are emphasized are more likely to succeed, suggesting a systematic link between student achievement and academic climate.


It Works For Me: Becoing A Publishing Scholar/Researcher, Charlie Sweet, Hal Blythe 2009 Eastern Kentucky University

It Works For Me: Becoing A Publishing Scholar/Researcher, Charlie Sweet, Hal Blythe

Charlie Sweet

The authors’ purpose in this book is to provide “a collection of practical tips drawn from real-life experiences.” We believe this particular book is so important to share with today’s audience, we almost called it Take My Book, Please! On the other hand, does the scholarly world need another book on the importance of scholarship? Further, if the book standard for tenure is slowly disappearing because so many academic presses are closing, why would we bother to write one? And recent studies show that new faculty members consider university employment a 9:00-5:00 job, so doesn’t that ...

Effective Practice With E-Portfolios: How Can The Uk Experience Inform Implementation?, Gordon Joyes, Lisa Gray, Elizabeth Hartnell-Young 2009 University of Nottingham

Effective Practice With E-Portfolios: How Can The Uk Experience Inform Implementation?, Gordon Joyes, Lisa Gray, Elizabeth Hartnell-Young

Dr Elizabeth Hartnell-Young

This paper introduces the background to the JISC work within the e-portfolio domain in the UK and presents an overview of past and current activities and the drivers for these developments. This is followed by a review of JISC’s approach to drawing out the learning and implications for e-portfolio practice from this extensive collection of work and its dissemination. The analysis of twenty one recently funded projects involving the use of e-portfolios in the UK is introduced. The findings suggest that eportfolio implementation is particularly complex in part due to the number of stakeholders involved, the contexts in which ...
