Ever since its official endorsement by the American Statistical Association in 2005, the Guidelines for Assessment and Instruction in Statistics Education (GAISE) College Report has had a profound impact on the teaching of statistics. Now, a decade later, it is important to recognize the changing nature in what and how we teach our introductory statistics students. Changes in technology and assessment practices, just over the past 10 years, have made it possible to do new and exciting things in our courses, in very different ways than were envisioned by the authors of the original GAISE College Report. Further, our world ...


Researching Mbti Personality Types: Project Management Master’S Degree Students, Thomas G. Henkel, James W. Marion Jr, Debra T. Bourdeau Jun 2015

Researching Mbti Personality Types: Project Management Master’S Degree Students, Thomas G. Henkel, James W. Marion Jr, Debra T. Bourdeau

Publications

The purpose of this research study was twofold: 1) to explore if a university’s Master of Science in Project Management students’ MBTI® personalities differ significantly; 2) to gain a better understanding if the MBTI® personality traits of university students enrolled in a project management degree differ significantly from those MBTI® personalities of the general population. The goodness of fit test was used in order to test the hypotheses that the 177 graduate project management students (observed data) have the same MBTI® distribution as in the general population (expected data). Overall, the present study showed that the student population has ...

Aligning With Aviation Industry Expectations And Requirements: Improving The Presentation Skills Of Erau Graduate Business Students, Janet K. Tinoco, Jason Alvarez

Publications

MBA students have diverse set of presentation skill levels. Students come from many parts of the world, different undergraduate degree programs, and with widely varying employment histories, if any at all. They need to build their understanding of what to present to whom and how.


Electronic Checklist Implementation: Transition Training And Ga Usage, Krystal M. Megha, Erin Bowen Jan 2015

Electronic Checklist Implementation: Transition Training And Ga Usage, Krystal M. Megha, Erin Bowen

Aviation / Aeronautics / Aerospace International Research Conference

In this conceptual study, the authors explore the development of checklists for fixed-wing aviation operations, including their utility in accomplishing identified goals and adherence to human factors design principles. Furthermore, the authors review the current status of the aviation industry transition to electronic checklists, comparing them to their paper counterparts, and assess adherence to human factors principles in electronic checklist design and implementation. The role of electronic checklists in general aviation operations and safety implications of the electronic transition are discussed.

Brief Summary of Research:

Anecdotal evidence suggests that more and more pilots at both the general aviation (GA) and ...


Formation And Assessment Of A Tool To Evaluate Stem Literacy In Service-Learning Projects, Barbara Hayford, Sally Blomstrom, Lori A. Mumpower Jan 2015

Formation And Assessment Of A Tool To Evaluate Stem Literacy In Service-Learning Projects, Barbara Hayford, Sally Blomstrom, Lori A. Mumpower

Publications

The purpose of the authors’ research was to create a tool to evaluate science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) literacy in service-learning projects. The researchers posited that components of service-learning, which in this case included the deliverable and reflections, are examples of fundamental STEM literacy and thus can be assessed for STEM learning outcomes. The authors review the literature on service-learning and on STEM literacy. Combining components of literacy-based learning objectives and service-learning objectives with the revised Bloom’s taxonomy in a taxonomy table, they created a general STEM literacy evaluation tool. They then applied the tool to a service-learning ...


A Study Of How Flight Instructors Assess Flight Maneuvers And Give Grades: Inter-Rater Reliability Of Instructor Assessments, Beth M. Beaudin-Seiler, Ryan Seiler Jan 2015

A Study Of How Flight Instructors Assess Flight Maneuvers And Give Grades: Inter-Rater Reliability Of Instructor Assessments, Beth M. Beaudin-Seiler, Ryan Seiler

Journal of Aviation/Aerospace Education & Research

This article discusses calibration of flight instruction to an academic institution’s “gold standard”. Flight instructors reviewed four lessons within the private pilot curriculum. Each lesson required rating four maneuvers and assigning an overall letter grade. Data was compared to the gold standard set by flight faculty from the institution. Initial data revealed instructors with one year or less of experience had less agreement to the gold standard. A curriculum to rate maneuvers and grade lessons was developed and practice sessions occurred in instructor meetings starting Fall 2013. Post-test results show improvement in agreement in one year or less experienced ...
