The relationship among wellness, severity of disturbance, and social desirability of entering master's-level counseling students by Heather L Smith( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The results of the analyses indicated statically significant relationships in 52 out of 55 correlations between the instruments' total scores and subscale scores. The first null hypothesis was rejected in favor of the alternative hypothesis; there was a statistically significant negative relationship between level of psychological disturbance and level of wellness. The results of the study failed to reject null hypothesis two; the relationship between wellness and social desirability was found to have no statistical significance after removing the influence of psychological disturbance. Null hypothesis three was rejected in favor of the alternative hypothesis; there was a statistically significant negative relationship between level of psychological disturbance and social desirability

A comparison of character education programs and their effects on academic achievement, behavior, and attendance by Beth Michelle Balog Berger( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study was compiled between 2003 and 2004 based on data for the 1998-1999 school year and the 2002-2003 school year. These dates were chosen because they were the pre-implementation year (1998-1999) and four years after the character education mandate went into effect
Presuppositions in moral education discourse : developing an analytic framework and applying it to several moral education traditions by Maria A Sciaino( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Moral education is ever more important in our schools today, but the various moral education traditions make it difficult to decide which tradition best serves our purpose and population. This dissertation develops and uses an original analytic framework to narrow the choices of moral education curricula. The analytic framework introduced presuppositions that expounded upon one’s center of value or source of moral authority, the nature of people and their capacity for rational thought, the nature of society, the time orientation of tradition, and the resulting morality in action. The analytic framework was then applied to ten notable traditions: Catholic religious education, values clarification, Kohlberg’s cognitive-developmental theory, five multicultural education traditions (Teaching the Exceptional and Culturally Different, Human Relations, Single-Group Studies, Multicultural Education, and Education that is Multicultural and Social Reconstructionist) reviewed by Sleeter & Grant, and Skinner’s theory of behavior modification. This study presents the analytic framework in depth and offers a brief narrative of its application across traditions. The resulting synthesis offers a review of commonalities, differences, surprises, and finally, a proposal that an existing presupposition stands as the defining one in regard to differentiating among moral education traditions
Effects of three instructional schedules on skill acquisition and generalization in the use of two-way radios to report task completion by high school students with moderate intellectual disabilities by Geraldine Perez-Turner( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Multiple Probe Design across participants with intermittent probe trials within each instructional group, and an added generalization phase (Horner & Baer, 1978; Tawney & Gast, 1984; Alberto & Troutman, 2003) was employed in this study. Nine high school students with moderate intellectual disabilities, three in each instructional schedule, were taught to use a twoway radio to report task completion. The results of the study revealed that the CBI instructional schedule was the overall most efficient instructional schedule for skill acquisition. Two of the CBI participants required the least number of trials to learn to use a two-way radio to report task completion. The second most efficient schedule was the CBISC and the least efficient instructional schedule was the SICO. Based on Mean scores, learning efficiency appeared to be greater for the participants in the CBI and CBISC instructional schedule. These participants required the least number of intrusive prompts. Results indicated that the SICO instructional scheduled was more efficient for only one participant. This participant only required verbal prompts for acquisition of the skill. However, participant one on the SICO instructional schedule required the most intrusive prompts of all participants across groups. For generalization, the CBISC instructional schedule appeared to be the most effective. In this schedule, the two participants that concluded the study generalized the skill across three novel settings with 100% accuracy. The SICO schedule, also had two participants generalized the skill across three novel settings; however, one participant in that group failed to generalize the skill in two settings. The CBI instructional schedule appeared to be the least effective for skill generalization in this study. In this schedule, only one participant generalized the skill in all three novel settings
A faith-based program evaluation : moral development of seminary students at the Louisiana State Penitentiary by Bruce M Sabin( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this dissertation was to conduct an outcomes-based program evaluation for the Louisiana State Penitentiary (Angola) campus of the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. The study included one primary research question, with two subquestions. The primary research question asked to what extent students in the program developed moral judgment consistent with program goals of rehabilitating students and preparing them for effective ministry. The first subquestion asked whether statistically significant differences existed in the moral reasoning of students of different class years. The second subquestion asked whether statistically significant differences existed in the moral reasoning of students of different personality types
Characteristics associated with the effectiveness of resource development programs at Florida community colleges by Nancy B Morgan( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The grant success rate, return on investment, and organizational and operational integration of institutional advancement functions of the respondent colleges were incorporated into linear mathematical models to predict grant development success. Although no statistically significant predictive relationships were determined, organizational and operational integration of institutional advancement functions can not be considered to be without some influence on a college's ability to generate grant revenue. The potential for community college efforts to yield increasing grant funding will continue to transform higher education. The study of the components and characteristics that allow for predicting successful grant acquisition is of continuing research interest and mounting practical importance to community college presidents, administrators, trustees, and resource development professionals
The effects of a responsibility-based character education program on middle school academic achievement and school climate at an international school in East Africa by Terry A Howard( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While certain middle school grade levels showed statistically significant improvement in some academic disciplines or effort improvement in some subjects it would not be appropriate to generalize the findings based on this investigation
Supplemental instruction in a community college developmental mathematics curriculum : a phenomenological study of learning experiences by Julie Meer Phelps( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sources of data included five rounds of interviews (three with SI learners and two with SI leaders), a Multiple Intelligence Inventory, and statistical information from the referent community college. Study findings revealed eight themes that characterized motivating factors for attending these optional instructional sessions. Moreover, nine themes emerged from the data regarding types of activities learners experienced in SI. Findings suggest that SI helps create a climate of achievement for learners taking developmental mathematics in a community college setting
Alternative teacher certification : an investigation to determine the effectiveness of alternative teacher certification in the state of Florida according to principals' perspective by Nelson Torres( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The focus of this study is the Alternative Certification Programs established by the public school districts in the state of Florida as required by state statutes. It was designed to assess the effectiveness of such programs based on the perspectives, attitudes, and perceptions that selected public school principals have on these programs and on alternatively certified teachers. These principals were identified and selected by their respective school districts. A questionnaire, created in part by the researcher, was used to identify the perspectives, attitudes, and perceptions public school principals have on ACPs and alternatively certified teachers

Relationship between supervisor locus of control and employee satisfaction in a residential care facility by Patricia Nowotniak( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The goal of this research was to identify factors that may contribute to employee satisfaction. Review of the literature revealed potential factors influencing employee satisfaction, such as locus of control, difficulty of the work itself, and working conditions. These literature findings guided this research, to establish if a relationship existed between employee satisfaction of caregivers employed in a developmental institution and locus of control. Supervisors and their employees were given a locus of control scale; employees were additionally given a job satisfaction survey. The relationship between the supervisors’ locus of control and employee satisfaction was evaluated as well as the relationship between the employees’ locus of control and their job satisfaction. The resignation rate and rate of transfers within the agency were established for each of the supervisors and were assessed in relationship to the locus of control of the supervisors. Factors such as the level of physical exertion required by employees in their job duties and the level of behavioral intervention in their homes were assessed as they related to their own job satisfaction, their transfers, and their rates of resignations
Perceptions of teachers and administrators of the organizational supports for inclusion programs in southwest Florida elementary schools by Brian D Moore( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The success of exceptional student education, although dependent upon the teachers involved, is largely made possible both by the role the school principal performs and the organizational support provided by the school district. The primary purpose of this study was to identify the sources and components of organizational support required to implement the inclusion of students with disabilities into general education classrooms. The provision of resources by administrators, particularly the building principal, is an example of an organizational support that helps students with disabilities learn successfully in this setting. These resources include funding, special curricula, adaptive technology, organizational resources such as time for training, and hiring of additional personnel to assist these students

Caregiver burden and coping responses for females who are the primary caregiver for a family member living with HIV/AIDS in Kenya by V. Muthoni Kimemia( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study examined coping factors and caregiver burden among female caregivers (N=116) of a family member living with HIV/AIDS in Kenya. Coping factors were derived from a principal components factor analysis of the fourteen scales on the Brief Cope (Carver, 1997). Caregiver burden was measured using the Zarit Caregiver Burden Inventory. Multiple regression analysis was used to investigate the relationships between caregiver burden and coping factors. Post-hoc multiple regression analyses further investigated the relationship between caregiver burden and caregiver demographic characteristics. The relationship between caregiver burden and care recipient characteristics was also investigated
The effects of the 5E learning cycle model on students' understanding of force and motion concepts by Meghann A Campbell( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Initial data were provided by a pretest indicating students' understanding of force and motion concepts. Four times weekly for a period of 14 weeks, students participated in investigations related to force and motion concepts. Their subsequent understanding of these concepts and their ability to generalize their understandings was evaluated via a posttest. Additionally, a review of lab activity sheets, other classroom-based assessments, and filmed interviews allowed for the triangulation of pertinent data necessary to draw conclusions from the study. Findings showed that student knowledge of force and motion concepts did increase although their understanding as demonstrated on paper lacked completeness versus understanding in an interview setting. Survey results also showed that after the study students believed they did not learn science best via textbook-based instruction
The relationship of student achievement to prinicpals' self-reported use of the four frame theory by Donna Poniatowski( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Principals in this study were surveyed concerning their use of the structural, human resource, political and symbolic frames of leadership using the Leadership Orientations (Self) instrument constructed by Bolman and Deal (1990). The only restriction concerning usability of the returned survey was that the principal had to be at the same school during the 2004 and 2005 school years. Of the 52 surveys returned, 42 (73%) formed the population for this study
An investigation of principals' attitudes toward the knowledge and use of learning styles with students in therapeutic settings by Renee Pancoast( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
