Gender Differences In Education And Labour Market Outcomes, Kylie Hillman, Sheldon Rothman Sep 2011

Gender Differences In Education And Labour Market Outcomes, Kylie Hillman, Sheldon Rothman

Kylie Hillman

Despite numerous changes in policy and legislation, issues of gender equity in the Australian education system and labour market remain a concern, particularly the poorer performance of males on tests of literacy and in rates of Year 12 completion. The results of research on the topic are summarised in this article. They suggest that although there is a statistically significant difference between the average levels of reading comprehension of male and female students, this difference may not extend beyond the classroom to seriously affect later outcomes. Males on average continue to progress, through both the education system and the labour ...

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 ...

Signposts To Improved Test Scores In Literacy And Numeracy., Sheldon Rothman, J Mcmillan Jul 2004

Signposts To Improved Test Scores In Literacy And Numeracy., Sheldon Rothman, J Mcmillan

Dr Sheldon Rothman

A recent study of year 9 students' results on reading comprehension and mathematics tests, by the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) found that a positive school climate is associated with higher literacy and numeracy test scores. In other key findings, socioeconomic status, language background, Indigenous status, gender and educational aspirations were found to have significant effects on achievement in both literacy and numeracy. Parents' education had a significant effect on literacy but not on numeracy. This article gives an overview of the findings.


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 ...

Technology Competency: Educating The Educators Of Tomorrow, Christine Knox-Gramlick, Melissa Koenig

Melissa Koenig

As the use of technology grows, the effect it has on education also grows. The teachers of tomorrow must not only be able to use the technology of today but must also be able to teach that technology to their students. Educators must be able to prepare their students to use technology for both educational advancement and career opportunities. This paper looks at the development of an online course designed to ensure that all Education majors leave with the knowledge needed to teach the students of tomorrow.

Leukocytosis Occurs In Response To Resistance Exercise In Men, Shawn Simonson, Catherine Jackson

Shawn R. Simonson

The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of a single bout of resistance exercise on immune cell numbers of moderately active men. Subjects were 16 male volunteers (mean +/- standard deviation [SD] age 30 +/- 7 years, height 180.1 +/- 7.0 cm, mass 83.97 +/- 10.33 kg); 8 were randomly assigned to treatment and 8 to control groups. Treatment was a common resistance training routine (3 sets of 8-10 repetitions at 75% of 1 repetition maximum) of 8 large muscle mass exercises using resistance machines. Blood samples were drawn before exercise and at 0 minutes (P0), 15 ...


Psychologist Hand-Scoring Error Rates On The Rothwell - Miller Interest Blank : A Comparison Of Three Job Allocation Systems, R Goddard, Robert Simons, W Patton, K Sullivan Apr 2004

Psychologist Hand-Scoring Error Rates On The Rothwell - Miller Interest Blank : A Comparison Of Three Job Allocation Systems, R Goddard, Robert Simons, W Patton, K Sullivan

Dr Robert Simons

Hand-scoring errors are known to occur on a range of psychological tests. The present study conducts an investigation into the existence of scoring errors by 27 professional occupational psychologists using the Rothwell - Miller Interest Blank (RMIB). Building on investigations into the impact of work allocation practices on work quality in other professions, the present study explored whether psychologist scoring error rates differed between three work allocation systems. Data from 1175 completed RMIB survey forms indicated that error rates for the three systems ranged from 5 to 16.3 per cent, with the self-managed work allocation system resulting in the lowest ...
