The Development Of A Single Scale For Mapping Progress In Mathematical Competence, Ross Turner, Gayl O'Connor Mar 2015

The Development Of A Single Scale For Mapping Progress In Mathematical Competence, Ross Turner, Gayl O'Connor

Ross Turner

The authors’ intention is to develop a progress map that describes increasing mathematical competence. The main purpose of this chapter is to describe the means by which the research team has been able to use the data from a longitudinal testing program to build and refine a picture of growth in mathematical competence. In this chapter, conceptualisation of the underlying variable to be measured in developing a mathematical progress map is considered, and approaches to its development are discussed. The approach adopted is described and the results of the application of that methodology to the data generated through this research ...


State Differences In Achievement Among Secondary School Students In Australia, Gary Marks, John Cresswell Sep 2012

State Differences In Achievement Among Secondary School Students In Australia, Gary Marks, John Cresswell

Dr John Cresswell

A number of recent national studies of student achievement in secondary school have reported differences between the Australian states and territories. State differences are often viewed as insubstantial or as simply reflecting sociodemographic factors, or differences between the states in the grades or ages of the students sampled. In this article, the authors show that state differences are larger than generally assumed and cannot be attributed to socioeconomic and demographic factors. Generally, student achievement in reading, mathematics and science are higher in New South Wales than the other states, once demographic and grade differences are taken into account. Of concern ...

Transition To Further Education: The First-Year Experience, Julie Mcmillan, Kylie Hillman Feb 2012

Transition To Further Education: The First-Year Experience, Julie Mcmillan, Kylie Hillman

Kylie Hillman

Look at tertiary study in terms of academic failure and attrition, and research clearly identifies the first year of study at university or TAFE as the year of highest risk. Put otherwise, completion of the first year is 'more than half the battle' when it comes to the completion of a degree or diploma. Since that's the case, it's worth developing a fuller understanding of young people's experiences and perceptions of their first year of tertiary study, particularly to understand why people change their course of study, why they discontinue their studies and how they develop as ...


Creative Writing And An Overlooked Population, Charlie Sweet, Hal Blythe Jan 2012

Creative Writing And An Overlooked Population, Charlie Sweet, Hal Blythe

Hal Blythe

As a regional institution, our university's historic mission is to train area teachers who must operate under the auspices of the Kentucky Educational Reform Act, which mandates extensive writing portfolios i Grades 4,7, and 12. While these portfolios may include as much as 50% creative writing or work employing creative writing techniques, a recent survey of teachers responsible for guiding students revealed that not a single teacher had ever taken a course in creative writing pedagogy and only a handful had even had any formal training in creative writing. We suggested that this lack of teacher training was ...

Leadership In Catholic Schools : Development Framework And Standards Of Practice, Elizabeth Kleinhenz, Lawrence Ingvarson Apr 2010

Leadership In Catholic Schools : Development Framework And Standards Of Practice, Elizabeth Kleinhenz, Lawrence Ingvarson

Dr Elizabeth Kleinhenz

This study emphasises the connections between the work of leaders and the core functions of schooling. It draws these connections in the context of the values and beliefs of the Catholic Church and the mission of Catholic schools in their communities. The Framework has been developed with two main purposes in mind. The first is to guide the professional learning and development of aspiring leaders and to encourage teachers to consider movement into leadership positions. The second is to unite Catholic schools around a vision of agreed leadership practices for leaders – 'the standards' – and to provide a foundation for formalised ...

Analysis Of Baseline Assessments: Emergency Management Accreditation Program, 2003-2004, Valerie Lucus Cem, Cbcp Dec 2005

Analysis Of Baseline Assessments: Emergency Management Accreditation Program, 2003-2004, Valerie Lucus Cem, Cbcp

Valerie Lucus-McEwen CEM CBCP

Emergency management is an established system to prepare for, respond to, recover from and mitigate the consequence of disasters. Natural and manmade disasters have increased public interest in the systems and organizations that have evolved to protect the public from their effects. The Emergency Management Accreditation Program (EMAP) was developed as a method to evaluate and accredit emergency management programs. Between January 2003 and December 2004, with funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, EMAP conducted

baseline assessments of 35 U.S. state and territory emergency management programs.

This study was designed to analyze the results of those EMAP baseline ...

A Very Special Christmas, Hal Charles Nov 2005

A Very Special Christmas, Hal Charles

Charlie Sweet

For more than an hour Alyssa had been sitting in front of our picture window without moving. In the darkened pane I couldn't help but notice the contrasting reflections-the bright lights of the Christmas tree and the hollow , unblinking eyes of my nine-year-old daughter. I could have told myself that she was mesmerized by the snowflakes drifting down like angel wings, but that would have been lying

Haitian Creole, Marc E. Prou Nov 2005

Haitian Creole, Marc E. Prou

Marc E. Prou

Haitian Creole, also known as Kreyòl, is a member of the French-based creole language groups with a considerable part of its lexicon coming directly from seventeenth century French. Its grammar differs from French, however, and reflects closely the West African languages, such as Ewe, Fon, Yoruba, and Ibo. Kreyòl is similar to the creoles spoken in the French overseas departments of Martinique and Guadeloupe, as well as in Dominica, Saint Lucia, and parts of Trinidad.


Case Study Of A Mathematics Teacher At Lakewood High School, Arthur Lang Nov 2005

Case Study Of A Mathematics Teacher At Lakewood High School, Arthur Lang

Arthur Lang

This study has been undertaken as a project in an Educational Philosophy course. I decided to observe our department chair to learn how I too can properly teach my students to pass the New Jersey mandated High School Proficiency Test (HSPA). The results are a stunning documentation of how education is affected by the federal No Child Left Behind Act.
