Public Opinion About Measuring And Reporting Of Student Body Mass Index, Sarah C. Mckenzie, Gary W. Ritter Dec 2004

Public Opinion About Measuring And Reporting Of Student Body Mass Index, Sarah C. Mckenzie, Gary W. Ritter

Policy Briefs

In response to growing public concern about childhood obesity, the 2003 Arkansas General Assembly passed a measure requiring that school officials measure and report to parents each student’s body mass index (BMI) annually (§20-7- 135). Beginning in the 2003-2004 school year, schools were required to do the following: • include as a part of a student health report to parents an annual body mass index percentile by age for each student; and • to annually provide parents with an explanation of the possible health effects of body mass index, nutrition, and physical activity. This measure was one element of a larger ...

Engaging Indigenous Students At School: An Evaluation Of The Deadly Vibe Magazine, Nola Purdie, Louise Ellis, Alison Stone

Indigenous Education Research

Closing the divide between Indigenous and non-Indigenous students is one of the most pressing current educational imperatives. A multifaceted approach is needed to achieve this, given the diversity of educational disadvantage experienced by Indigenous students, and the contexts within which they obtain their education. One innovative approach to overcoming the disparity between Indigenous and non- Indigenous educational outcomes is that developed by Vibe Australia through its publication of the magazine Deadly Vibe. Deadly Vibe is a magazine for Indigenous students that aims to enhance their academic and social outcomes of schooling, including literacy and numeracy learning, self-esteem and self-concept, regular ...

The Use Of “Effect Size” In Augmenting The Results Of Significance Testing: A Comparison Of Pre/Post Data From A Geriatric Interclerkship, Urip Purwono, Susan V. Barrett, Michele M. Carlin, Mary L. Zanetti, Sarah M. Mcgee Nov 2004

The Use Of “Effect Size” In Augmenting The Results Of Significance Testing: A Comparison Of Pre/Post Data From A Geriatric Interclerkship, Urip Purwono, Susan V. Barrett, Michele M. Carlin, Mary L. Zanetti, Sarah M. Mcgee

Office of Institutional Research, Evaluation, and Assessment Publications and Presentations

Most research in medical education, when examining the impact of an intervention, report findings based primarily on significance testing despite the controversy of its appropriate use. Moreover, the p-value used to determine rejection or acceptance of the null hypothesis tells nothing about the magnitude of the significance. Using a pre/post assessment of a Geriatric Interclerkship as a case study, this study examines the utility of "effect size" measures in augmenting significance testing results.

Why Do High-Poverty Schools Have Difficulty Staffing Their Classrooms With Qualified Teachers?, Richard M. Ingersoll Nov 2004

Why Do High-Poverty Schools Have Difficulty Staffing Their Classrooms With Qualified Teachers?, Richard M. Ingersoll

GSE Publications

The failure to ensure that the nation’s classrooms, especially those in disadvantaged schools, are all staffed with qualified teachers is one of the most important problems in contemporary American education. The conventional wisdom holds that these problems are primarily due to shortages of teachers, which, in turn, are primarily due to recent increases in teacher retirement and student enrollment. Unable to compete for the available supply of adequately trained teachers, poor school districts, especially those in urban areas, the critics hold, end up with large numbers of underqualified teachers. The latter is, in turn, held to be a primary ...

Immigrant Status And Home Language Background : Implications For Australian Student Performance In Pisa 2000, John Cresswell

ACER Research Monographs

The primary focus of this report is to examine the effect that immigrant status and home language background may have on the performance of Australian students who participated in the OECD/Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA 2000). Approximately 5477 students from 231 schools across Australia participated in the study. In this report, two sets of analyses were conducted. The first set focuses on immigrant status of students and the second set of analyses provides data on those students who speak a language other than English at home compared to students from an English home language background.

Cheating And Moral Judgment In The College Classroom: A Natural Experiment, Tim West, Sue Ravenscroft, Charles B. Shrader Oct 2004

Cheating And Moral Judgment In The College Classroom: A Natural Experiment, Tim West, Sue Ravenscroft, Charles B. Shrader

Management Publications

The purpose of this paper is to present the results of a natural experiment involving academic cheating by university students. We explore the relationship of moral judgment (as measured using the defining issues test) to actual behavior, as well as the relationship between the honesty of students self-reports and the extent of cheating. We were able to determine the extent to which students actually cheated on the take-home portion of an accounting exam. The take-home problem was not assigned with the intent of inducing cheating among students. However, the high rate of observed cheating prompted the instructor to return to ...

Using Teacher Logs To Measure The Enacted Curriculum: A Study Of Literacy Teaching In Third‐Grade Classrooms, Brian Rowan, Eric Camburn, Richard Correnti

CPRE Journal Articles

In this article we examine methodological and conceptual issues that emerge when researchers measure the enacted curriculum in schools. After outlining key theoretical considerations that guide measurement of this construct and alternative strategies for collecting and analyzing data on it, we illustrate one approach to gathering and analyzing data on the enacted curriculum. Using log data on the reading/language arts instruction of more than 150 third‐grade teachers in 53 high‐poverty elementary schools participating in the Study of Instructional Improvement, we estimated several hierarchical linear models and found that the curricular content of literacy instruction (a) varied widely ...


Using Instructional Logs To Study Mathematics Curriculum And Teaching In The Early Grades, Brian Rowan, Delena M. Harrison, Andrew Hayes Sep 2004

Using Instructional Logs To Study Mathematics Curriculum And Teaching In The Early Grades, Brian Rowan, Delena M. Harrison, Andrew Hayes

CPRE Journal Articles

In this article we describe the mathematics curriculum and teaching practices in a purposive sample of high‐poverty elementary schools working with 3 of the most widely disseminated comprehensive school reform programs in the United States. Data from 19,999 instructional logs completed by 509 first‐, third‐, and fourth‐grade teachers in 53 schools showed that the mathematics taught in these schools was conventional despite a focus in the schools on instructional improvement. The typical lesson focused on number concepts and operations, had students working mostly with whole numbers (rather than other rational numbers), and involved direct teaching or review ...


Developing Measures Of Content Knowledge For Teaching Reading, Geoffrey Phelps, Stephen Schilling Sep 2004

Developing Measures Of Content Knowledge For Teaching Reading, Geoffrey Phelps, Stephen Schilling

CPRE Journal Articles

In this article we present results from a project to develop survey measures of the content knowledge teachers need to teach elementary reading. In areas such as mathematics and science, there has been great interest in the specialized ways teachers need to know a subject to teach it to others—often referred to as pedagogical content knowledge. However, little is known about what teachers need to know about reading to teach it effectively. We begin the article by discussing what might constitute content knowledge for teaching reading and by describing the survey items we wrote. Next, factor and scaling results ...
