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

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 ...

Indie Rock And Mainstream Pop Are Thematically, Instrumentally, And Structurally Analogous, Sean D. Pritchard 2015 Virginia Commonwealth University

Indie Rock And Mainstream Pop Are Thematically, Instrumentally, And Structurally Analogous, Sean D. Pritchard

Undergraduate Research Posters

Millennials have inconsistently defined indie rock since it was thrust onto the mainstream in 2004 with the breakout success of Modest Mouse’s Float On, Franz Ferdinand’s Take Me Out, and Zach Braff’s Garden State. Indie rock is not defined by its sound, thereby disqualifying it as a pure genre. Indie rock is defined by its aesthetic qualities: anti-mainstream appeal, style, promotion, etc. Indie rock is flexibly defined person to person as they perceive it. Consumers define indie rock by its themes being implicitly anti-mainstream and a less-produced sound while producers define indie rock by a musician’s ...


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.

Repositioning Art Work From Patients Suffering From Anorexia Nervosa In A Gendered, Socio-Cultural Context: A Self-Reflective Study, Dafna Rehavia-Hanauer

Journal of Clinical Art Therapy

This article, conceptualized within a post-structuralist, feminist approach to art therapy, addresses the role of visual images as a controlling constituting discourse significant to the formation of the eating disorder anorexia nervosa. As a core position this article argues for a change in the way art work created within the art therapy process by women who suffer from anorexia nervosa is interpreted and analyzed by art therapists. The article argues for an enhanced appreciation and critical analysis of gendered, social-cultural contextualization of visual images and recognition of how these forces have a role in directing women to enact behaviors of ...


The Use Of Creative Art As A Strategy For Case Formulation In Psychotherapy: A Case Study, Semra Karaca PhD, Nurhan Eren 2014 Marmara University Istanbul

The Use Of Creative Art As A Strategy For Case Formulation In Psychotherapy: A Case Study, Semra Karaca Phd, Nurhan Eren

Journal of Clinical Art Therapy

Case formulation refers to the appraisal of the individual data and the treatment plan in terms of certain principles. In psychotherapy, case formulation is relevant for the recognition of conceptual and clinical tools, as well as for the evaluation of the therapeutic endeavor. Art work (painting) provides an effective tool for case formulation because it allows the individual to express his/her thoughts and emotions, which are prone to the influences of subconscious drives, conflicts, fears, and desires in a symbolic fashion. In this study, case formulation of a 31-year-old woman, who could not overcome her verbal and physical aggressive ...

Grounding Naïve Physics And Optics In Perception, Ivana Bianchi, Ugo Savardi 2014 University of Macerata, Italy

Grounding Naïve Physics And Optics In Perception, Ivana Bianchi, Ugo Savardi

Baltic International Yearbook of Cognition, Logic and Communication

Many adults hold mistaken beliefs concerning the behavior of mechanical motion and reflections. In the field of psychology this has been investigated in the areas of naïve physics and naïve optics. The interesting question regards where these false beliefs come from. Particularly thought-provoking is the case of errors which are at odds not only with (presumably or even actually) known physical/optical concepts, but also with what people would actually perceive. Some errors are in fact consistent with what people see in ecological conditions while others apparently are not. This has led to the former being referred to as perceptual ...

Study Of The Importance Of The Inclusion Of Exact Sciences In Economic Sciences Using A Scientometric Approach, Houcemeddine A. Turki 2014 University of Sfax, Tunisia

Study Of The Importance Of The Inclusion Of Exact Sciences In Economic Sciences Using A Scientometric Approach, Houcemeddine A. Turki

Houcemeddine A Turki

Using a scientometric approach based on Google Scholar, this research studies the advances in the conciousness of scientific range about the dire effects of the overuse of Mathematics in Economics and the advances in the consideration of the efficiency of interdisciplinary approaches other than Mathematical Ones in solving Economic Problems. The work finished by determining that the consideration of the efficiency of interdiscipliary approaches has preceded the consciousness about the studied matter itself by using Regression Tools and Gompertz Model. This proved that the problem is in the conciousness about the matter and not the impossibility to find a complement ...
