However, 3S the information landscape changes, so do the students' needs tor learning how to navigate that ever-changing landscape. The rapidly increasing migration of print resources to electronic form removes many of the contextual and visual cues that alerted earlier users to the authority, accuracy, comprehensiveness, point of view, or other indicators by which to judge the quality of information sources. As the experts in the organization, access, and dissemination of information, librarians have stepped forward to teach students how ...

Comparing Self-Efficacy And Metacognition As Indicators Of Performance, Deborah K. Smith, Jerry Cha-Jan Chang, Trevor T. Moores Jan 2003

Comparing Self-Efficacy And Metacognition As Indicators Of Performance, Deborah K. Smith, Jerry Cha-Jan Chang, Trevor T. Moores

Management, Entrepreneurship and Technology Faculty Publications

We report the results of a pilot study that compared the computer self-efficacy construct with metacognition. While self-efficacy is primarily affective and refers to one’s beliefs about one’s ability to perform a task, metacognition is primarily cognitive and refers to one’s thoughts about one’s ability to perform a task. Given their similarity, both have been used as surrogate measures of knowledge or skill. We developed an instrument to measure both constructs and applied the instrument to a set of MIS students taking an Analysis and Design course. Factor analysis produced a five-factor model, with metacognition factoring ...

Financing An Adequate Education: A Case Study Of New York, William D. Duncombe, Anna Lukemeyer, John Yinger

Public Policy and Leadership Faculty Publications

The development of any adequacy based school finance system involves three components, which correspond to the three substantive sections of this paper:

First, a state must select measures of adequacy, either in terms of resources or student performance. Such measures are necessary to identify school districts below the standard. Although these measures can be controversial and difficult to develop, this choice is unavoidable.

Second, a state must estimate the cost of reaching a given performance standard in each district. The cost function approach presented in this study relies on statistical methods to extract from actual data the impact of student ...
