Reducing Class Size Misses Mark, Wallace Huffman Aug 1999

Reducing Class Size Misses Mark, Wallace Huffman

Economics Publications

School quality is very much on the minds of Iowans and many others. Real (constant-dollar) spending per pupil in Iowa public K-12 schools has increased steadily since 1960 up to 1992-93 when it flattened out. Per-pupil real expenditures are an eye-popping 2.8 times larger than in 1960, and the pupil-teacher ratio has declined about 34 percent -- mostly between 1970 and 1990.

Introduction To Engineering Problem Solving—A New Course For 1100 First Year Engineering Students, Richard L. Porter, Laura J. Bottomley, Mary Clare Robbins, Walthea V. Yarbrough, Sarah A. Rajala, Hugh Fuller

Sarah A. Rajala

During the past several years, NC State University has offered several experimental courses designed for the first year student in engineering; IMPEC, an integrated approach to mathematics, physics, engineering, and chemistry; E123, a mechanical dissection course which is now linked with the first year writing and composition course; and ECE 292D, a hands-on team based design course offered to upper class students as well. All were offered as an alternative to the introductory course (E100) that had little academic content, no engineering problem solving, and consisted of a large lecture room format with information dissemination as the major goal. Although ...

Symposium Attendees Get A True "Northwest Adventure", Jennifer Schleining Jan 1999

Symposium Attendees Get A True "Northwest Adventure", Jennifer Schleining

Iowa State University Veterinarian

Who ever said that ultimate frisbee and foosball aren't contact sports? Ask any of the athletically inclined SCAVMA members who attended the SAVMA Symposium at Washington State University during spring break to show you their scars and you'll see what I mean! Twenty-eight students found their way to Pullman, Washington, by plane, car, and one very tightly packed van driven by a true Midwestern cowboy with a crisp ten gallon green cowboy hat to experience learning made fun by a dedicated group of organizers from WSU and Oregon State University. While there, students attended lectures ranging from EPM ...

Iicab: A Little Known International Resource At Isu, Julie Schneider Jan 1999

Iicab: A Little Known International Resource At Isu, Julie Schneider

Iowa State University Veterinarian

It may not surprise you to hear that Ames, Iowa, is well known across the United States as a center of veterinary knowledge. It may surprise you, however, to learn that Ames, Iowa, is even better known outside the United States for its animal health expertise. This is due, in part, to the work of the Institute for International Cooperation in Animal Biologics (IICAB). What,you may ask, is IICAB?

Dr. Reece Retires From Isu Cvm Faculty, Bonnie Smith

Iowa State University Veterinarian

When William Omar Reece received his DVM from the Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1954, he expected to enter private veterinary practice, as did 99% of his classmates. According to him, they knew very little about alternative veterinary careers except doing meat inspection for the government. He did not expect to get a Ph.D. and probably did not expect to be looking back at 33 years of a diverse and distinguished academic career at ISU CVM. He did not know then that his life would take this path, but I think I speak for the many ...

Causerie, Eric S. Vymyslicky

Iowa State University Veterinarian

Only time can tell how history will remember the twentieth century for veterinary medicine. One thing, however, is already apparent today: the only true constant in veterinary medicine this century has been change. We have been fortunate enough to benefit from an explosion in technology and infonnation; the profession has come a long way since its infancy in the late 19th century. It would be impossible to list all the accomplishments we've seen in just one issue of the ISU Veterinarian, much less an entire library filled with volumes of research.

Improving For The Year 2000, Jill Speicher

Iowa State University Veterinarian

The Iowa State university College of Veterinary Medicine has been making improvements and getting a facelift as we plunge into the year 2000. The first of the major changes is the addition of a new café. The café opened for the spring semester. It serves muffins, bagels, coffee, hot tea, and hot chocolate in the mornings. The lunch menu includes a soup of the day, deli style sandwiches, potato chips, soda, and cookies. You can build your own sandwich - choosing from different breads, meats, cheeses, and toppings - or pick one of their specials. My personal favorite is the turkey and ...

Whew! We made it. It is a wonderful feeling to be wrapping up our last issue as editors of the ISU Veterinarian. We have really enjoyed working on this tremendous publication. Starting in May, we disappear downstairs to begin our senior rotations and the rest of our lives - a little scary and a whole lot of excitement. Next fall, second-year veterinary student Eric Vymyslicky will take over as editor. Eric has spent the semester as the assistant editor and we refer to him as our computer/layout guru. Eric and our excellent staff will be leading the journal into the ...

Demystifying The Senior Year: Are The Rumors Really True?, Lisa Denault Jan 1999

Demystifying The Senior Year: Are The Rumors Really True?, Lisa Denault

Iowa State University Veterinarian

As we all go through our first three years here at ISU CVM, rarely does anyone speak about "the senior year". Sure, we all hear the myths and rumors about how awful this clinician is to work with and oh, never, never take that rotation or you will never see the light of day and become a vampire. The gossip runs wild and somehow makes its way upstairs to the underclass students. But what is fact and what is fiction? I decided to investigate this matter and was lucky to find several eager senior students to straighten out this whole ...

Central Mandates And Local Incentives: The Colombia Education Voucher Program, Elizabeth M. King, Peter F. Orazem, Darin R. Wohlgemuth Jan 1999

Central Mandates And Local Incentives: The Colombia Education Voucher Program, Elizabeth M. King, Peter F. Orazem, Darin R. Wohlgemuth

Economics Publications

In decentralized education systems programs that promote central mandates may have to be devolved to local governments, communities, and providers. When participation by local governments and providers is voluntary rather than compulsory, the determinants of program placement are important in predicting potential benefits to individuals. This article analyzes incentives for municipalities and private schools to participate in Colombia's voucher program. It finds that the demand for secondary education relative to the capacity of public schools and the availability of spaces in private schools in the municipality were key predictors of municipal participation, whereas the number of underserved students had ...


Can Private School Subsidies Increase Enrollment For The Poor? The Quetta Urban Fellowship Program, Jooseop Kim, Harold Alderman, Peter F. Orazem Jan 1999

Can Private School Subsidies Increase Enrollment For The Poor? The Quetta Urban Fellowship Program, Jooseop Kim, Harold Alderman, Peter F. Orazem

Economics Publications

This study evaluates a program designed to stimulate girls' schooling through the creation of private girls' schools in poor urban neighborhoods of Quetta, Pakistan. Enrollment growth in these randomly selected neighborhoods is compared to enrollment growth in otherwise similar neighborhoods that were randomly assigned to a control group. The analysis indicates that the program increased girls' enrollment around 33 percentage points. Boys' enrollment rose as well, partly because boys were allowed to attend the new schools and partly because parents would not send their girls to school without also educating their boys. This outcome suggests that programs targeted at girls ...


Research Questions For A Call Research Agenda: A Reply To Rafael Salaberry, Carol Chapelle Jan 1999

Research Questions For A Call Research Agenda: A Reply To Rafael Salaberry, Carol Chapelle

English Publications

I am grateful to Rafael Salaberry for his comments on my paper "CALL in the year 2000: Still in search of research paradigms?" takes up the discussion that I hoped the paper would motivate about fundamental issues in CALL research--issues such as what the relevant research questions are, why particular research methods are appropriate, and how CALL research relates to second language acquisition (SLA) research. In the interest of moving the discussion forward, I have responded to each of the points that Salaberry has raised. Points (a) through (e) below are quoted directly from his paper:
