Mapping Student Achievement, Geoff Masters, Ray Adams, Jan Lokan Aug 2013

Mapping Student Achievement, Geoff Masters, Ray Adams, Jan Lokan

Prof Ray Adams

The analyses, publications and reports of quantitative data in education and the social sciences usually omit basic information on the construct measured. Probabilistic models for test data make it possible to delineate coherent and richly described measurement continua that facilitate interpretation of student achievement. The potential of conjoint measurement to bring about fundamental advances in educational testing practice lies in part in the opportunities it provides to build useful maps of learning domains and to use those maps in communicating student achievements. This chapter presents two applications of conjoint measurement aimed at constructing and describing achievement variables, developing insights into ...

Subject Choice In Years 11 And 12, John Ainley, Lyn Robinson, Adrian Beavis, Gerald Elsworth, M Fleming Feb 2010

Subject Choice In Years 11 And 12, John Ainley, Lyn Robinson, Adrian Beavis, Gerald Elsworth, M Fleming

Dr John Ainley

This report describes patterns of subject enrolments by students in the final two years of secondary school and the relationship of those patterns with a range of personal, social and school characteristics. It examines the combination of subjects which students include in their programs since the package of subjects may be more influential than enrolment in any particular subject.


The Advantages And Disadvantages Of Using A Computer- Interactive Format For Music Assessment, Jennifer Bryce, Margaret Wu Nov 1994

The Advantages And Disadvantages Of Using A Computer- Interactive Format For Music Assessment, Jennifer Bryce, Margaret Wu

Dr Jennifer Bryce

This article considers the advantages and disadvantages of using a computer interactive format for assessment. It is written in the light of experiences involving the adaptation of an existing music test designed for use at the beginning of secondary school to a computer interactive format requiring only the basic hardware that is likely to be available in Australian secondary schools.

Public Information Arrival, Thomas Berry, Keith Howe Aug 1994

Public Information Arrival, Thomas Berry, Keith Howe

Thomas D Berry

The authors develop a measure of public information flow to financial markets and use it to document the patterns of information arrival, with an emphasis on the intraday flows. The measure is the number of news releases by Reuter's News Service per unit of time. The authors find that public information arrival is nonconstant, displaying seasonalities and distinct intraday patterns. Next they relate their measure of public information to aggregate measures of intraday market activity. The authors' results suggest a positive, moderate relationship between public information and trading volume but an insignificant relationship with price volatility. Copyright 1994 by ...


Experimental Induction Of Hepatic Lipidosis In Cats, V Biourge, J Groff, R Munn, Claudia Kirk, T Nyland, V Madeiros, J Morris, Q Rogers Aug 1994

Experimental Induction Of Hepatic Lipidosis In Cats, V Biourge, J Groff, R Munn, Claudia Kirk, T Nyland, V Madeiros, J Morris, Q Rogers

Claudia A Kirk

The effect of long-term voluntary fasting on hematologic variables, biochemical profiles, and liver histologic findings was assessed in 15 obese cats (> 40% overweight). Clinical signs and laboratory results consistent with hepatic lipidosis were observed in 12 of 15 cats after 5 to 7 weeks of fasting, and were associated with 30 to 35% reduction of initial body weight. Histologic examination of successive liver biopsy specimens revealed that obesity was not associated with liver parenchymal lipid accumulation, but that fasting resulted in lipidosis in all 15 cats. The long-term fast was associated with an early (after 2 to 4 weeks of ...

Connecting Productive Schools And Workplaces For A Knowledge Society, Byrd Jones, Robert Maloy Jun 1994

Connecting Productive Schools And Workplaces For A Knowledge Society, Byrd Jones, Robert Maloy

Robert W. Maloy

As American education struggles to achieve new competencies for an emerging information age, popular reforms remain locked in industrial-era metaphors. Testing for basic skills, teacher professionalism, and school-business collaboration assumes that schooling prepares workers with skills for predictable roles. Meanwhile, computers and related technologies make possible low-cost information that is transforming learning and jobs. Hierarchical organizational structures that subordinated most employees have given way to flatter, flexible teams. Quasi-autonomous decision making by knowledgeable professionals extends to more and more workers. When businesses simply offer schools a few extra resources, they stunt interactive partnerships that enable youth and business cultures to ...

Effect Of Applied Potential Upon The In Situ Structure Of Self-Assembled Monolayers On Gold Electrodes, Mark Anderson, Marilyn Gatin May 1994

Effect Of Applied Potential Upon The In Situ Structure Of Self-Assembled Monolayers On Gold Electrodes, Mark Anderson, Marilyn Gatin

Mark R. Anderson

Polarization modulation Fourier transform infrared reflection absorption spectroscopy (PM-FTIRRAS) has been utilized to study the in situ structure of octadecanethiol when adsorbed to gold electrode surfaces and with the application of potential to the substrate. It is found that applied potential has little effect upon the spectrum of the monolayer in the presence of D2O solutions containing 0.10 M NaClO4. The presence of an acetonitrile solution contacting the monolayer leads to small changes in the infrared spectrum relative to that seen in D2O solutions, suggestive of some small disordering of the monolayer caused by the presence of the acetonitrile ...

Calibrating Essay Markers With The Partial Credit Model, Geoff Masters, Siek Khoo Mar 1994

Calibrating Essay Markers With The Partial Credit Model, Geoff Masters, Siek Khoo

Dr Siek Toon Khoo

This paper shows how a range of differences in marker behaviour, including leniency/severity and central tendency, can be detected and investigated using the Rasch partial credit model. The method allows for variations in the use of rating categories by estimating a set of rating 'thresholds' for each assessor. By calibrating each assessor's rating behaviour in this way, the method automatically takes account of detected differences among assessors in the measurement process.

Paying Back Your Country Through Income-Contingent Student Loans, Evelyn Brody Mar 1994

Paying Back Your Country Through Income-Contingent Student Loans, Evelyn Brody

Evelyn Brody

This article uses the case of paying for a college education to study broad issues of equity, both between families and between generations. As a normative matter, I argue that we should subsidize the education of those who are disadvantaged, but that is because a college education generally 'pays off,' society as a whole should not subsidize most students. Rather, the government can serve the valuable function of simply ensuring that students have access to sufficient loans to finance their education. Congress recently enacted President Clinton's proposal to convert the federal role from a guarantor of student loans to ...

Academic Leaders And Faculty Developers: Creating An Institutional Culture That Values Teaching, Mary Deane Sorcinelli, Norman D. Aitken Jan 1994

Academic Leaders And Faculty Developers: Creating An Institutional Culture That Values Teaching, Mary Deane Sorcinelli, Norman D. Aitken

Mary Deane Sorcinelli

In recent years, a great deal has been said and written about the need to improve teaching in the academy, especially in large research universities. College presidents, national associations representing higher education, private foundations, and individual faculty scholars all have challenged faculty, chairs, deans, campus administrators, and faculty developers to work together to improve support for undergraduate teaching and learning (Bok, 1986; Bowen & Schuster, 1986; Boyer, 1987; Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, 1989; Diamond & Adam, 1993; Seldin & Associates, 1990). Despite such calls for collaborative efforts to improve undergraduate education, faculty developers still often feel alone in a milieu that does not value ...
