Peer Tutoring Of Junior Nursing Students: Student Experiences And Perceptions Of SelfEfficacy And Benefit, Mary Clarke
Peer Tutoring Of Junior Nursing Students: Student Experiences And Perceptions Of SelfEfficacy And Benefit, Mary Clarke
Doctoral Dissertations and Projects
The purpose of this phenomenological study is to understand the experiences of peer tutoring in juniorlevel nursing students, as well as the perceptions of increased selfefficacy and overall benefit to student learning. The proposed study included 10 nursing students enrolled in the residential Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program at a large private university in the Southeast United States. The theoretical framework guiding this study included both developmental constructivism (Piaget, 1953) and social cognitive theory (Bandura, 1994), as they work in a reciprocal relationship within a conceptual framework. Knowledge is constructed, and as students learn concepts from experiences, they ...

The Effects Of Using Selected Metacognitive Strategies On Act Mathematics SubTest Scores, Jeffrey Lemay
Doctoral Dissertations and Projects
This quasiexperimental posttest only control group designed quantitative study examined whether or not members of an experimental group of participants who utilized two metacognitive strategy training regimens experienced a significant increase in their ACT mathematics subtest scores compared to a group of students who did not utilize either of the study’s metacognitive strategy training regimens. Using a posttest only control group design required 2 groups of participants: 1) the experimental group, and 2) the control group. Participants began the study’s treatment on October 26, 2015, and the study ended on December 12, 2015, when all participants of the ...

Comparing The Effects Of Elementary Music And Visual Arts Lessons On Standardized Mathematics Test Scores, Molly King
Doctoral Dissertations and Projects
The purpose of this quantitative, causalcomparative study was to compare the effect elementary music and visual arts lessons had on third through sixth grade standardized mathematics test scores. Inferential statistics were used to compare the differences between test scores of students who took inschool, elementary, music instruction during the same semester state standardized mathematics tests were administered and those who took inschool, elementary visual arts instruction during the same semester standardized mathematics tests were administered. The students attended seven elementary schools in the same North Alabama school district. The research questions were: (a) Does participation in elementary school music lessons ...

Academic Intervention: Acceleration And Remediation, Barbara Franklin
Doctoral Dissertations and Projects
Eighth grade math students must pass a standards based test to be promoted to the next grade. Students who were at risk of failing the state’s annual test faced impending retention. The purpose of this quasiexperimental study was to see if an intensive nineweek (55 min per day) remedial Math Connection (MC) class for 67 suburban, eighth grade students identified as at risk of failing, could significantly increase the scores; concurrently, at this Title I school, they were compared with 122 eighth grade students who were not identified as at risk of failing. The dependent variable was measured using ...
PreService Elementary School Teachers’ Perceptions Of Mathematics Education Experiences: A Phenomenological Study, Christine Mcelhaney
PreService Elementary School Teachers’ Perceptions Of Mathematics Education Experiences: A Phenomenological Study, Christine Mcelhaney
Doctoral Dissertations and Projects
The purpose of this phenomenological study was to examine the perceptions about mathematics of preservice elementary school teachers at a small private university in the Midwestern United States. The theoretical framework used for this research study came from Bandura’s Social Cognitive Theory, including the component of teacher efficacy. Because mathematics is a fundamental subject for students to develop skills necessary for various 21st century careers, this qualitative phenomenological study sought to examine how preservice teachers perceived their ability and confidence to teach mathematics. I limited the choice of participants to elementary preservice teachers who had not yet completed any ...

A Phenomenological Study On The Impacts Of Embedding Disciplinary Literacy During Science Instruction On Elementary Teachers’ Metacognition Of Instructional Techniques, Kelley Weiss
Doctoral Dissertations and Projects
The educational community has been increasing its focus on literacy for several years. The modern definition of literacy requires students to be an informed and integrated thinker, synthesizing new information beyond the mere ability to read and write (Guzzetti & Bang, 2011). This qualitative phenomenological study focused on how teachers of science view literacy and how that view changes when they implement the concept of disciplinary literacy into science instruction. This phenomenological study examined how teachers became more metacognitive of their instructional methods after implementation of the QuestionAnswer Relationship strategy (QAR) and direct vocabulary instruction into their science instruction. Teachers utilized ...
