Automated, Web-Based, Second-Chance Homework, Randall W. Hall, Leslie G. Butler, Saundra Y. Mcguire, Sean P. Mcglynn, Gary L. Lyon, Ron L. Reese, Patrick A. Limbach

Randall W. Hall

Procedures and programs for Web-based homework administration were developed and tested. The special feature of the protocol is the option of a "second chance". When a student gives a wrong answer in the weekly homework assignment, a second version of the same question is posed to that student within 48 hours. Both the original and the second versions of the homework are Web-based and automatically graded. More than 90% of the students used the second chance at least once during the semester. More than 60% used this feature for every homework assignment. The second-chance option motivates students to study the ...

Association Between Dietary Factors And Calcium Oxalate And Magnesium Ammonium Phosphate Urolithiasis In Cats, C Lekcharoensuk, C Osborne, J Lulich, R Pusoonthornthum, Claudia Kirk, L Ulrich, L Koehler, K Carpenter, L Swanson

Claudia A Kirk

OBJECTIVE: To identify dietary factors associated with the increase in occurrence of calcium oxalate (CaOx) uroliths and the decrease in occurrence of magnesium ammonium phosphate (MAP) uroliths in cats. DESIGN: Case-control study. ANIMALS: 173 cats with CaOx uroliths, 290 cats with MAP uroliths, and 827 cats without any urinary tract diseases. PROCEDURE: Univariate and multivariate logistic regression were performed. RESULTS: Cats fed diets low in sodium or potassium or formulated to maximize urine acidity had an increased risk of developing CaOx uroliths but a decreased risk of developing MAP uroliths. Additionally, compared with the lowest contents, diets with the highest ...

Froebel's Legacy, Kathleen A. Strub-Richards Apr 2001

Froebel's Legacy, Kathleen A. Strub-Richards

Kathleen A Strub-Richards

When Froebel was growing up in the late eighteenth century, young children under the age of seven didn’t attend school. There was no general education curriculum geared toward young children and no socially recognized value in attempting to teach them (Brosterman, 1997). Friedrich Froebel, through his experience with young children, was the first to see that “constructive, directed” play was extremely beneficial for children under the age of seven. Froebel was greatly influenced by the Swiss educator, Pestalozzi, and Girard, whose ideas, including the training of teachers, methods of observation and hands before books learning , were very revolutionary for ...

Early School Leavers: Who Are They, Why Do They Leave, And What Are The Consequences?, Gary Marks, Julie Mcmillan

Julie McMillan

Changes in the youth labour market mean that that pathway from school to work is no longer so clearly defined. This paper addresses three broad issues: (1) In the late 1990s, who left school before the completion of Year 12? Are the sociodemographic factors which exerted an influence in the past still influencing the educational pathways of young people? (2) What are the reasons given by young people for leaving school early? (3) What are the consequences of school non-completion in the immediate post-school years?
