Together For Kids: Second Year Report : A Project Of Community Healthlink, Inc., Lynn Hennigan, Carole C. Upshur, Melodie Wenz-Gross

Implementation Science and Practice Advances Research Center Publications

The Together for Kids (TFK) project, now beginning its third implementation year, grew out of two years of work of over 30 childcare, health care, child welfare and social service agencies concerned about early childhood mental health issues. These concerned constituents, like others across the country, were responding to an increase in the incidence of young children exhibiting challenging behaviors that were resulting in disrupted early childhood classrooms and children being expelled from programs (Grannan et al, 1999; Swanson, 2001). Locally, there was also a concern about the growing number of public school special education students with diagnoses of emotional ...

The Use Of “Effect Size” In Augmenting The Results Of Significance Testing: A Comparison Of Pre/Post Data From A Geriatric Interclerkship, Urip Purwono, Susan V. Barrett, Michele M. Carlin, Mary L. Zanetti, Sarah M. Mcgee Nov 2004

The Use Of “Effect Size” In Augmenting The Results Of Significance Testing: A Comparison Of Pre/Post Data From A Geriatric Interclerkship, Urip Purwono, Susan V. Barrett, Michele M. Carlin, Mary L. Zanetti, Sarah M. Mcgee

Office of Institutional Research, Evaluation, and Assessment Publications and Presentations

Most research in medical education, when examining the impact of an intervention, report findings based primarily on significance testing despite the controversy of its appropriate use. Moreover, the p-value used to determine rejection or acceptance of the null hypothesis tells nothing about the magnitude of the significance. Using a pre/post assessment of a Geriatric Interclerkship as a case study, this study examines the utility of "effect size" measures in augmenting significance testing results.

Textile & Clothing Undergraduates' Recent Life Experiences: Are Students Stressed-Out?, Joy Michelle Kozar, Sara Brubacher, Mary B. Gregoire

Apparel, Events and Hospitality Management Conference Proceedings and Presentations

The purpose of this pilot study was to identify experiences that cause stress in the lives of textile and clothing undergraduate students. An assessment of this type is important, as previous research has shown that high levels of stress are linked to negative feelings like tension, anxiety, sadness, fatigue and/or depression, which ultimately can impact the overall self-esteem and welfare of students.

Embedding Evidence-Based Practice In A Nursing Curriculum: A Benchmarking Project, Wendy Chaboyer, Ania Willman, Patricia Johnson, Lynette Stockhausen Aug 2004

Embedding Evidence-Based Practice In A Nursing Curriculum: A Benchmarking Project, Wendy Chaboyer, Ania Willman, Patricia Johnson, Lynette Stockhausen

Patricia Johnson

The development of a new nursing curriculum in one Australian university provided the opportunity for academic staff to consider the best ways to integrate the requirements of evidence-based practice (EBP) into nursing education and culminated in the development and conduct of a specific benchmarking project. Data collection for the project included the use of university documents, observations and informal discussions with staff. An analysis of this information resulted in the emergence of five categories that were grouped into two major categories, namely infrastructure and processes. Within the major category of infrastructure, two minor categories, namely evidence-based nursing (EBN) Unit and ...

Factors Affecting School-Based Speech-Language Pathologists’ Use Of Language Assessment Practices With Bilingual Children, Lena Gloria Caesar

Dissertations

The purpose of this study was to identify the assessment procedures and practices of school-based speech-language pathologists (SLPs) employed in the state of Michigan. A survey method was used to gather information from 409 SLPs regarding the assessment procedures used for assessing both their bilingual students, as well as their monolingual English-speaking students. The survey also gathered information regarding perceptions about language proficiency, professional training, and bilingual assessment products. In order to analyze factors related to their use of recommended practices, the study investigated the relationship between selected demographic, caseload, and work-setting variables, and the type of bilingual assessment methods ...


Ako Ako: A Progress Report On A Collaborative Peer Mentoring Pilot Programme, Chrissy Joyce-Erueti, Rhona Poutu-Shaw, Khurshid Mitchell Jul 2004

Ako Ako: A Progress Report On A Collaborative Peer Mentoring Pilot Programme, Chrissy Joyce-Erueti, Rhona Poutu-Shaw, Khurshid Mitchell

Chrissy Erueti

We present a progress report on a pilot peer-mentoring programme for staff at a tertiary institution. Ako Ako is a Maori methodology of learning that acknowledges that both partners share the power base of teaching and learning. Peer mentoring replicates this methodology and requires a paradigm shift from traditional mentoring where one is deemed to have higher levels of knowledge and skills. In this process the group engages in an exchange of knowledge and skills to enhance professional practice. Although mentoring was occurring within the institute, no formal structure was in place. A need was established and a framework to ...


Can Professional Development Programs Help Close The Achievement Gap?, C. Jayne Brahler Jul 2004

Can Professional Development Programs Help Close The Achievement Gap?, C. Jayne Brahler

Health and Sport Science Faculty Publications

This paper explores the question of whether it is possible to design professional development programs for teachers that can significantly improve student test results and reduce the achievement gap for students.

The Dayton (Ohio) Foundation and the Montgomery County (Ohio) Educational Service Center, sponsors of The Miami Valley Teacher/Leadership Academy, answer this question with a resounding yes. Recent results indicate that the academy's two-year program, designed to provide professional development to help improve student test scores, not only succeeded in significantly improving the student proficiency mean score, but also considerably reduced the achievement gap for participating students.

This ...

Correlates Of Depression In Young Adult Caregivers, Mark Gillen May 2004

Correlates Of Depression In Young Adult Caregivers, Mark Gillen

Theses and Dissertations

This research examined depression in young adult caregivers. It was hypothesized that levels of depression in 18 to 40 year olds who provided care to older adult family members would be similar to depression levels of middle age adult caregivers. This study also examined the relationship between depression, gender, employment, physical health, and relationships. Participants included 172 young adult caregivers that were employees of one of three mid-west universities or colleges. All employees in the young adult age range were contacted and provided with a survey packet. The survey included the Center for Epidemiological Studies Depression Scale (CES-D), and predictor ...

Measuring Spelling Growth Over Time In Elementary Writing Samples, Pamela M. Ansell Apr 2004

Measuring Spelling Growth Over Time In Elementary Writing Samples, Pamela M. Ansell

Master's Theses

Developmental spelling stage theories have been proposed and disputed for 30 years. The current study used Gentry's (1982) model to assign category ratings to narrative writing samples produced by 32 students over two years to observe developmental growth over time. In addition, quantitative measures were obtained from the samples, including an index of control (Laminack & Wood, 1996) and a percentage correct. Analyses were also used to test the effectiveness of using a writing lab approach (Nelson, Bahr & Van Meter, 2004) on spelling development. During the last half of second grade, all 32 students received intervention guided by the writing ...
