Based on the recent proliferation of online education and the ongoing technological revolution, this research focused on interaction of students and faculty as a main contributor to the success of online education. During 2003, a survey was distributed to convenience samples of faculty members and students from the Midwest of the U.S. and three Eastern… (More)
A framework for developing computing courses is presented, that has the potential to increase student engagement by enhancing student perception of relevance. The framework employs established andragogical approaches, course design methodologies, and measurement tools. A preliminary report on the application of this framework is presented. The results are… (More)
These websites and books include practical information for facilitators to use in helping parents and caregivers understand bullying and how to take steps to stop it.
The effect of information feedback of movement components on the reaction time (RT) and movement time (MT) of mentally retarded adults performing a discrete movement aiming task was investigated. We anticipated that specific training and informational feedback on the RT portion of the RT-MT task would more effectively reduce RT, despite aiming requirements… (More)
The degree to which response complexity affects the ability of moderately mentally retarded adults to perform on a coincident timing task was examined. In Experiment 1 subjects were required to depress a key to estimate accurately the arrival of a moving target at a predetermined coincident point. Analyses of both constant and variable error scores… (More)
Two experiments were conducted to examine the degree to which mentally retarded adults can be trained to improve their reaction time (RT) and movement time (MT). A discrete aiming task that had both RT and MT components was utilized in Experiment 1. Only MT improved significantly across the 15 training days, and this performance level was maintained after 5… (More)
