The Analysis Of Methods Of Instruction In College Algebra And Trigonometry Courses In The Langston University Department Of Mathematics, Cristie L. Bostic Dec 1995

The Analysis Of Methods Of Instruction In College Algebra And Trigonometry Courses In The Langston University Department Of Mathematics, Cristie L. Bostic

McCabe Thesis Collection

In 1978, a recurring effort was made to remedy the constant decline of test scores in the area of mathematics around the country (Milhalko, 1978). At this time educational methods of "back-to-basics" and "competency-based" programs were seen as the solutions to the drastic decline in test scores and the decrease in interest among students in mathematics courses. Seventeen years later, teachers of mathematics in both the secondary schools and universities (entry level courses) are confronted daily with students who possess a fear of mathematics, students who are unwilling, uninterested, and unable to learn the concepts in mathematics, and students who ...

Sex And Race Differences In Faculty Salaries, Tenure, Rank, And Productivity: Why, On Average, Do Women, African Americans, And Hispanics Have Lower Salaries, Tenure, And Rank?, Michael T. Nettles, Laura W. Perna Nov 1995

Sex And Race Differences In Faculty Salaries, Tenure, Rank, And Productivity: Why, On Average, Do Women, African Americans, And Hispanics Have Lower Salaries, Tenure, And Rank?, Michael T. Nettles, Laura W. Perna

GSE Publications

This study examined the status and conditions of salaries, tenure, rank attainment, and productivity of men and women college faculty and faculty of each of five racial groups. It is based on a subset of data on 8,114 faculty members drawn from the 1992-93 National Study of Postsecondary Faculty. The results, based on descriptive and multivariate analyses, indicate that, even after controlling for experience, education, productivity, and institutional characteristics, women received 11.3 percent lower salaries than men, had lower probabilities than men of being tenured, and were less likely than men to be full professors. While Hispanic and ...

Bridging Two Worlds: Professional Service And Service Learning, Deborah Hirsch, Ernest Lynton Oct 1995

Bridging Two Worlds: Professional Service And Service Learning, Deborah Hirsch, Ernest Lynton

New England Resource Center for Higher Education Publications

Authors of this essay, also published in the NSEE Quarterly, argue that proponents of service-learning and faculty professional service should join forces to pursue a common agenda of community outreach. At a time when colleges and universities are being urged to help solve society's problems, the faculty represents a virtually untapped resource. Certainly, there are presently - and always have been - individual faculty working in the community as consultants or as supervisors and guides for students. If the campus is to make a significant impact, however, the institution must be able to deploy departments, divisions, interdisciplinary centers and institutes to ...

Seniority, External Labor Markets, And Faculty Pay, Byron W. Brown, Stephen A. Woodbury Jul 1995

Seniority, External Labor Markets, And Faculty Pay, Byron W. Brown, Stephen A. Woodbury

Upjohn Institute Working Papers

We estimate the returns to seniority (the wage-tenure profile) for university faculty, and the degree to which these returns respond to entry-level salaries (or opportunity wages) a relationship unexplored in work to date. Using data on faculty at a Big Ten university (ours), we estimate elasticities of senior-faculty salaries with respect to entry-level salaries, and find that these elasticities decline with seniority. The evidence both provides an explanation of faculty salary compression and suggests the importance of controlling for entry-level salaries in obtaining estimates of the returns to seniority.

The Relationship Between Student And Faculty Learning Style Congruency And Perceptions Of The Classroom Environment In Colleges Of Teacher Education, Patrick N. Kariuki

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

The purpose of this study was to determine the extent of congruence between teachers' and undergraduate education majors' learning styles in selected colleges of the Tennessee Association of Colleges for Teacher Education, and to determine if the style congruence was related to student perceptions of the classroom learning environment. A related purpose was to identify needed changes in classroom environments based on the characteristics of the actual and ideal classroom environments as perceived by students, characteristics of the actual classroom environment as perceived by their teachers, and characteristics of actual and ideal classroom environments as perceived by men and women ...

Machiavellian Attitudes Acknowledged By Principals Of Tennessee Secondary Schools, George M. Williams

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

The purpose of this study is to determine the level of Machiavellian attitudes acknowledged by secondary school principals as measured by the Mach V Attitude Inventory Scale. The data were collected from an ex post facto survey of 169 public and nonpublic secondary school principals, grades 9-12. Principals completed the Mach V scale and a 13-item demographic survey. Sixteen research questions were formulated to examine the relationship among the variables which produced seventeen null hypotheses. Of the seventeen null hypotheses, four were found to be significant and thirteen were nonsignificant. A review of the descriptive data indicated that the majority ...

Turnabout Time: Public Higher Education In The Commonwealth, Richard A. Hogarty, Aundrea E. Kelley, Robert C. Wood Mar 1995

Turnabout Time: Public Higher Education In The Commonwealth, Richard A. Hogarty, Aundrea E. Kelley, Robert C. Wood

John M. McCormack Graduate School of Policy and Global Studies Publications

"Stay the course?"

"Steady as she goes" is the wrong prescription for charting the future of public higher education in the Commonwealth. A major course correction is in order if the coalition vital to the system's well-being is to hang together and be strengthened. With sharply divergent views being held by the public at large, political and business leaders, faculties and students--all groups essential to continuing educational progress--mutual accommodations and adjustments are the order of the day. Major changes in finance, institutional missions, curricula, and academic standards for faculty and students alike are imperatives.

The classic academic model that ...


Review Of The Book The Cost Of Talent: How Executives And Professionals Are Paid And How It Affects America, Ronald G. Ehrenberg Mar 1995

Review Of The Book The Cost Of Talent: How Executives And Professionals Are Paid And How It Affects America, Ronald G. Ehrenberg

Articles and Chapters

[Excerpt] Why should the former President of Harvard University be concerned that during the 1970s and 1980s the earnings of doctors, lawyers in private practice, and top corporate executives grew substantially relative to the earnings of professors, teachers, and high level federal civil servants? Why should he care that physicians with specialized hospital-based practices, such as neurosurgeons, have seen their earnings rise substantially relative to physicians practicing family medicine during the same period?

In each case, the answer is that Bok believes that occupational choices are determined, at least at the margin, by the pecuniary and nonpecuniary benefits that the ...


Gender Differences In Faculty Turnover, Byron W. Brown, Stephen A. Woodbury Mar 1995

Gender Differences In Faculty Turnover, Byron W. Brown, Stephen A. Woodbury

Upjohn Institute Working Papers

Over the last 15 to 20 years, colleges and universities have paid increasing attention to attracting and retaining faculty women. The rate of progress of women in academe has nevertheless been painfully slow. For example, statistics on economists collected and published by the American Economic Association (Committee on the Status of Women in the Economics Profession 1994) suggest that in recent years, about 20 percent of Economics assistant professors in graduate Ph.D.-granting departments were women, about 10 percent of associate professors were women, and under 5 percent of full professors were women. The percentage of new assistant professors ...

Preparing The Way For Reform In Higher Education: Drawing Upon The Resources Of The Community-At-Large, Judith A. Ramaley

Higher Education

Higher education is being asked to pay more attention to student learning and to contribute to the enhancement of the social and economic conditions of the community it serves. As a result, educational institutions will no longer be self-contained Community members and organizations have become not only critical partners inframing the goals and intentions of the educational reform movement, but they also have assets that must be tapped by educational institutions that wish to implement change and respond to social needs

The intent of this study was to examine the relationship between personal epistemology, complexity of thought given three different levels of accountability instruction, and critical thinking dispositions. Each of these areas has been examined in the literature separately, but the relationship between them has never been investigated;The participants consisted of 128 undergraduates, 81 female and 47 male, all of whom had earned sixty or more semester credits and were all enrolled in a required interdisciplinary seminar at a small private liberal arts college in the midwest;Personal epistemology was measured by the Learning Environment Preference (Moore, 1987), which is ...


A Study Of The Attitudes Of Faculty And Deos At Iowa State University Toward Deming's Principles Of Total Quality Improvement (Tqi) , Anita Louise Ousley Jan 1995

A Study Of The Attitudes Of Faculty And Deos At Iowa State University Toward Deming's Principles Of Total Quality Improvement (Tqi) , Anita Louise Ousley

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

Recent issues facing higher education have created uncertainty over the traditional philosophies underlying higher education administration. As a result, some institutions are investigating Total Quality Improvement (TQI) as an alternative teaching and administrative practice. However, TQI implementation efforts sometimes fail due to poor attitudes of faculty and other employees toward the philosophy and toward change, in general;This study investigates the attitudes of faculty and Department Executive Officers (DEOs) at Iowa State University toward some aspects of TQI by identifying possible group differences between DEOs and faculty and between/among faculty subgroups. To achieve the objectives, an instrument was developed ...
