Extending Open Textbook Network Workshop And Reviews To Include All Oer And Library Materials, Jennifer Lantrip, Amy Hofer, Carol Mcgeehon

OLA Quarterly

The cost of higher education is a barrier for many students, keeping them from attaining their goals. While textbooks and course materials are just a small part of the total cost of attendance, this is the area where faculty can have a direct impact in lowering costs. By choosing openly licensed course materials, faculty can not only help students save money but also have complete control over customizing their curriculum. This article describes a workshop model that offers stipends for faculty to review open educational resources (OER), which increases the likelihood that they will go on to adopt OER in ...

Effects Of Mental Health Campaigns, Susan Schott May 2018

Effects Of Mental Health Campaigns, Susan Schott

Senior Honors Projects, 2010-current

This project examines the effects of a mental health campaign on college students. This is important to research because universities and colleges alike need to understand the effects that campaigns about mental health on campus can have on students. I researched this by conducting an online experimental study on a sample of 511 students at a university in the Mid-Atlantic region. Qualtrics randomly assigned the participants into two groups, where one group viewed an experimental campaign and the other a control ad. The participants were measured using a post- test questionnaire which tested their self-perceptions of anxiety and level of ...


Financial Literacy In South Carolina, Connor Pestovich, Matthew Travis Apr 2018

Financial Literacy In South Carolina, Connor Pestovich, Matthew Travis

Senior Theses

Being wise with finances is a skill that many people tend to overlook as important. There are days when an individual can avoid using certain subjects learned in high school, but very rarely, if ever, is there a day when topics of finance are not used. This could be anything from purchasing food, driving to work, working on a computer, or receiving a paycheck. While most would agree that the ability to handle money wisely is very important, these concepts do not have a high priority of being taught in high schools in South Carolina. More than that, many parents ...

The Detection And Impact Of Low Cognitive Effort Survey Responses, Michael Laurence Turner Jan 2018

The Detection And Impact Of Low Cognitive Effort Survey Responses, Michael Laurence Turner

School of Education Graduate Theses & Dissertations

Survey researchers have long been aware that respondents may not always be attentive when answering surveys. But, only recently have researchers studied the detection and impact of answer patterns that respondents provide when not enacting critical steps in the expected response process. I term these answer patterns Low Cognitive Effort (LCE) response vectors where the term response vector refers to a complete set of item responses provided by a single respondent. Previous research suggests that the most promising LCE detection methods flag up 10 to 20% of respondents and that statistics like Cronbach’s alpha may shift between 5 and ...

Using Immediate Feedback To Improve Short-Term Learning In Extension, Erin W. Hodgson

Entomology Publications

Program evaluation is an important part of any extension program and is often a required component by funding agencies. Given declining resources in land-grant universities, we must be creative in evaluating the learning and adoption of our research-based recommendations. I used a survey tool to give immediate feedback to participants in a wide variety of situations. Results indicate adults were receptive to this evaluation method, and close-ended questions can provide reliable evaluation data in an extension program. People showed improved significant learning with this technique and it is a model for other extension personnel.

Making Accessibility Data Accessible – A Challenge, Kathrin Bögelsack, Sven Michaelis Jan 2018

Making Accessibility Data Accessible – A Challenge, Kathrin Bögelsack, Sven Michaelis

Papers

The Norwegian mapping authority has been carrying out a project on mapping accessibility following a national standard since 2009. In the beginning, the mapping was organized and carried out by the Norwegian Mapping Authority. This resulted in the creation of a good basic dataset for many Norwegian districts and bigger district-centers and enabled us to develop a national standard. However, it also lead to that the districts often did not feel any responsibility or ownership of the dataset and therefore did not use it in the scope that was intended. As a result, the mapping responsibility was given to the ...
