Expanding Our Understanding Of People With Disabilities In Research, Miranda Sue Terry 2015 Stephen F Austin State University

Expanding Our Understanding Of People With Disabilities In Research, Miranda Sue Terry

Bright Ideas Conference

This presentation will specifically discuss research involving people with disabilities and how those serving on Institutional Review Boards (IRB) need to expand their understanding of this population when it comes to research participation and language used with participants.

The Belmont Report (1979) provides the three guiding ethical principles for conducting research:
(1)respect for persons, which includes autonomy,
(2)beneficence, and
(3)justice.

These should be applied to all populations and understandably there should be stricter regulations when dealing with marginalized populations but these “restrictions” need to be made with understanding about these populations.


House Of Compensation: Predictors Of Compensation-Based Psrs, Phillip Madison, Al Greule 2015 Stephen F Austin State University

House Of Compensation: Predictors Of Compensation-Based Psrs, Phillip Madison, Al Greule

Bright Ideas Conference

In America, socializing with friends is now a functional alternative to watching television. This study draws from research on intrapersonal communication and media effects to ask “What functions and characteristics of parasociability predict parasocial compensation for real-life interaction?” We combined data from two surveys, arguing that parasocial thinking, when functioning for purposes of internal rehearsal and self-understanding, is characterized by rehearsal, variety and self-dominance -- all of which predict parasociability as compensation for human interaction. Retroactive parasocial thinking negatively predicted compensation.


Workplace Discrimination Climate And Team Effectiveness: The Mediating Role Of Collective Value Congruence, Team Cohesion, And Collective Affective Commitment, Anya T. Edun 2015 Florida International University

Workplace Discrimination Climate And Team Effectiveness: The Mediating Role Of Collective Value Congruence, Team Cohesion, And Collective Affective Commitment, Anya T. Edun

FIU Electronic Theses and Dissertations

This study explored the relationship between workplace discrimination climate on team effectiveness through three serial mediators: collective value congruence, team cohesion, and collective affective commitment. As more individuals of marginalized groups diversify the workforce and as more organizations move toward team-based work (Cannon-Bowers & Bowers, 2010), it is imperative to understand how employees perceive their organization’s discriminatory climate as well as its effect on teams. An archival dataset consisting of 6,824 respondents was used, resulting in 332 work teams with five or more members in each. The data were collected as part of an employee climate survey administered in ...

Peer Reviewed Safety Management Systems: Collaboration For Continuous Improvement, Michael F. Canders 2015 Farmingdale State College

Peer Reviewed Safety Management Systems: Collaboration For Continuous Improvement, Michael F. Canders

Aviation / Aeronautics / Aerospace International Research Conference

Collegiate aviation program leaders have no greater responsibility than assuring safe flight operations. A Safety Management System (SMS) is an effective framework to present and reinforce key safety principles and can be effectively tailored for the collegiate aviation flight training environment. The collegiate academic tradition of peer review can be effectively leveraged to enable collaboration between collegiate aviation programs and provide a mechanism for continuous improvement of participating programs. This presentation provides a model for establishing a peer review process for collegiate Safety Management Systems and the construction of a password-protected repository for reviewed programs which can be referenced by ...


Risk Perception In Aviation Students: Weather Matters, Ric Ferraro PhD, Darci VanDyke, Mary Zander, Krista Anderson, Bethany Kuehlen 2015 Univ. North Dakota

Risk Perception In Aviation Students: Weather Matters, Ric Ferraro Phd, Darci Vandyke, Mary Zander, Krista Anderson, Bethany Kuehlen

International Journal of Aviation, Aeronautics, and Aerospace

Sixty-three aviation major students and 71 non-aviation major students participated in an experiment concerning aviation experience and risk perception (Risk Perception Scale, RPS; Hunter, 2002). Non-aviation students rated three of the RPS risk scenarios (P2Fly, P2Life, P2 Base) as having higher perceived risk than aviation students with the exception of the weather risk scenarios (P2WX). Aviation students perceived the P2WX scenarios to be significantly more risky. These results have implications for how future pilots perceive risk.


Consistency Of Aviation Students When Taking The Private Pilot Knowledge Exam, Scott R. Winter, Stephen Rice, Katie M. Reid, Rian Mehta 2015 Florida Institute of Technology

Consistency Of Aviation Students When Taking The Private Pilot Knowledge Exam, Scott R. Winter, Stephen Rice, Katie M. Reid, Rian Mehta

Journal of Aviation/Aerospace Education & Research

Inconsistency is the enemy of performance. Several researchers have conducted a number of studies examining consistency in a variety of laboratory tasks; however, no research to date has looked at test-taking consistency in a real-world aviation environment. In this study, participants took a portion of the Federal Aviation Administration Private Pilot Knowledge Exam for credit in their Aeronautics 1 (private pilot ground school) course at their respective university. This was done twice: once after seven weeks and another time after 12 weeks into the semester. In order to measure consistency, participants took the same exam twice (questions were randomized across ...

Looking Beyond Fossil Fuel Divestment: Combating Climate Change In Higher Education, Robin Xu 2015 Pomona College

Looking Beyond Fossil Fuel Divestment: Combating Climate Change In Higher Education, Robin Xu

Pomona Senior Theses

The young fossil fuel divestment movement is altering the landscape of climate change activism on US campuses. Student-run divestment campaigns are now pushing for institutions of higher education to withdraw their investments from the top 200 public fossil fuel companies. Despite student fervor, however, divestment has remained a controversial tactic for combating climate change. The first half of this thesis examines the stated motives of a selection of institutions that have officially agreed or declined to divest, and investigates the hypothesis that pushing for divestment alone will not achieve broad success because it does not appeal to a wide enough ...


Towards Ex Ante Prediction Of User Performance: A Novel Neurois Methodology Based On Real-Time Measurement Of Mental Effort, Ricardo Buettner, Sebastian Sauer, Christian Maier, Andreas Eckhardt 2015 FOM University of Applied Sciences

Towards Ex Ante Prediction Of User Performance: A Novel Neurois Methodology Based On Real-Time Measurement Of Mental Effort, Ricardo Buettner, Sebastian Sauer, Christian Maier, Andreas Eckhardt

Christian Maier

We propose a methodology of an ex ante prediction of users’ performance based on analyzing the pupillary diameter variability captured by ordinary eye-tracking systems. Based on a realistic large-scale experimental evaluation of our methodology we show promising results that pave the way for a dynamic real-time adaption of IT to the user’s mental effort and the expected user performance. Our non-invasive contactfree methodology can be applied cost-efficiently both in research and practical environments, without disturbing the participant/user.

Family Ties: Fostering Sibling Relationships With Children On The Spectrum, Marquis Grant 2015 My Life My Autism

Family Ties: Fostering Sibling Relationships With Children On The Spectrum, Marquis Grant

Marquis Grant

emotional deficits that keep them from meaningfully interacting with their families and peers. Children with autism, by nature of their disability, have self-indulgent interests that can not only prevent them from developing relationships, but also expose them to ridicule if their classmates, peers, or siblings do not have an understanding of ASDs. Although there have been quite a few studies concerning the prevalence of autism among siblings, there have been limited studies regarding the extent to which the disability affects the sibling relationship.

Developmental Level As A Predictor Of Counseling Skills, Margaret J. Jensen, Garrett J. McAuliffe, Renee Seay 2015 Old Dominion University

Developmental Level As A Predictor Of Counseling Skills, Margaret J. Jensen, Garrett J. Mcauliffe, Renee Seay

The Journal of Counselor Preparation and Supervision

What is the relationship between the developmental characteristics of counseling interns and their counseling skills? Thirty master’s-level counseling students in their fieldwork phase were rated by their supervisors on both a measure of developmental level and counseling skills. Results indicated that the construct of Self/Other Awareness was the strongest predictor of counseling skills level. Based on this finding, it can be concluded that counselor supervisees possessing this awareness appear better equipped to deal with the complex problem-solving and social interactions required for successfully counseling clients.
