Student Test Scores And Their Relationship To Order Of Test Completion, Ron Deiter, Vern Pierce

Economics Publications

A number of different instruments are typically used by instructors to assess an undergraduate student's level of understanding of course subject matter and, ultimately, to assign each student a course grade. While homework assignments, quizzes, term papers, group projects, class participation and oral reports are all commonly used, generally, a major part of a student's course grade is based on classroom performance on exams. Many instructors assume or like to believe that the major, if not the only. determinant of student scores on exams is student knowledge and understanding of the material. However, Marotz and Young (1988) suggest ...

Special Events, Dan Drahos

Iowa State University Veterinarian

Stress relief through recreation? The concept may not be new but it did form the basis of a new program at ISU's College of Veterinary Medicine. The Recreation & Stress Relief (RSR) program was developed by Dan Drahos who brought the idea from his undergraduate experiences with the ISU Recreation Services and the National Intramural Recreation Sports Association (NIRSA). While Attending several national and regional NIRSA conferences and spending much time with the "special populations" and "stress management" workshops, the realization of a need for a program such as RSR turned into a proposal to SCAVMA.

Editorial Notes

Iowa State University Veterinarian

I remember in undergraduate being strongly discouraged 'from entering the profession of veterinary medicine. I was told repeatedly that there were too many veterinarians and livestock numbers were declining so veterinarians would not be needed in a few years. I cannot count the number of times I was told, "there is no future in veterinary medicine, there is no money in it." My response was "I'm not doing it for the money, I'm doing it because it is what I WANT to do." I have always enjoyed caring for animals and since third grade I have set my ...

Writing In The Academic Disciplines, 1870-1990: A Curricular History, David R. Russell

English Books

“ To understand the ways students learn to write, we must go beyond the small and all too often marginalized component of the curriculum that treats writing explicitly and look at the broader, though largely tacit traditions students encounter in the whole curriculum,” explains David R. Russell, in the introduction to this singular study. The updated edition provides a comprehensive history of writing instruction outside general composition courses in American secondary and higher education, from the founding public secondary schools and research universities in the 1870s, through the spread of the writing-across-the-curriculum movement in the 1980s, through the WAC efforts in ...

A Comparative Analysis Of Methods Used In Preparation For Occupational Testing , Donald Lee Cox

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

Acceptable and recognized methods utilized to develop competency and prepare for occupational testing are strongly controlled by certifying agencies. Teachers, law enforcement officers, medical personnel and fire fighters, to name a few, operate under specific guidelines for training requirements to qualify for professional certification. Most certification examinations are competency based tests. What methods of preparation a certifying agency recognizes may severely restrict an individual's option to develop competency.;This research thesis specifically investigates fire fighter certification and methods of preparation to develop competency. Over five-hundred Iowa fire fighter candidates from 1989 to 1991 were studied. Written examination scores were ...

A Comparison Study Of The Effectiveness Of A Strategic, Short-Term School Counseling Model And Traditional Counseling Models As Used By Elementary School Counselors , Mary Alice Bruce Christensen

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

The major purpose of the study was to compare the effectiveness of the Strategic, Short-Term School Counseling (SSTSC) model and traditional counseling models, as used by trained counselors in the elementary school. Drawing upon the work of family therapists Watzlawick, Weakland, and Fisch (1974) and de Shazer (1985), the researcher specifically proposed the 4-step SSTSC model which utilizes elements of student developmental levels and maximizes inherent capabilities of the school system. Following one individual counseling session, treatment groups were compared. It appeared that students in the SSTSC group improved at a faster rate than did students in the traditional group ...
