Biographical Prediction Of Educational Success, Gerald Melvin Simmerman

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

The purpose of the study undertaken here is to determine the extent to which four biographical factors could be used to predict success in Air Force Career Counseling courses. The biographical factors are (1) age, (2) amount of education, (3) number of years in the Air Force and (4) number of years since the individual last attended school. The criteria used to measure the success are the test score results obtained in the Air Force Career Counseling Course taught at the University of Denver during 1952.

History Of Public Education In Jeffersonville, Indiana., C. C. Callahan

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

As the traveller approaches Jeffersonville from the north by way of U.S. Highway Number Thirty-One, he may see at the city limits a marker bearing the following information: "Jeffersonville was founded in 1802 and named in honor of Thomas Jefferson who planned the original town plat. It was made the county seat by William Henry Harrison, governor of the Indiana Territory." A stranger visiting a city is usually attracted by those things along the lines of his own interests. The engineer would be interested in plats and sanitary conditions. The business man would be interested in the business section ...

Teacher Reading is the topic of this professional paper which has been written to fulfill partially the requirements for the Degree of Master in Education for the University of Louisville, Louisville, Kentucky. The purpose of this study is neither to condone nor to condemn teachers in their discrimination or quantity of reading, but is, instead, a rather limited survey to portray the extent and type of reading done by teachers in the schools of Jefferson County and the city of Louisville during the year 1947-1948.

A Study Of The Academic Success Of Veteran Former Probation Students In The College Of Arts And Sciences Of The University Of Louisville., Rollin E. Godfrey

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

The University of Louisville, like most other universities, played an important role in World War II in the training of Service Men for active duty in the Navy, and now in the post-war era, finds herself taxed to the limit to provide educational facilities for her veteran students. To admit large numbers of students, whether veteran or non veteran, without some sort of screening process to identify those who obviously could not do college work would be wasteful of manpower and public moneys. The policy which the University has used for many years is known to be a valid procedure ...

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Teachers are a busy group. Contrary to the belief of many persons who are not in close contact with a teacher, the school day does not end when the children leave the building. No indeed--there are faculty meetings, committee meetings, P.T.A. meetings, educational association meetings and supervisor meetings to mention but a few of the functions every teacher is expected to attend. In the evening there are papers to grade, lessons to prepare, professional books and articles to read, and numerous records of many varieties to keep. Few teachers enjoy the luxury of an eight hour working day ...

The Opportunity Class Of The Mary D. Hill School., Gladys E. Wyatt

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

In almost every classroom in the country there are overage boys and girls, retarded children who have been pushed along through school after repeated failures have convinced both them and their teachers and companions that they are of little consequence. Since not much can be done to remedy the situation after so many years, the only solution in most cases is to pass the children along as rapidly as possible, allowing them to sit in the successive grades where the intellectual tasks are completely beyond their limited abilities. Here they acquire more bad habits and often become personality or behavior ...
