Electroencephalographic cortical event-related potentials (ERPs) are affected by information processing strategies and are particularly appropriate for the examination of hypnotic alterations in perception. The effects of positive obstructive and negative obliterating instructions on visual and auditory P300 ERPs were tested. Twenty participants,(More)
ABET EC 2000 Criteria 3 and 4 specifically focus on student learning objectives and associated assessment and evaluation practices that are often integral to capstone design courses. This paper reports findings from a two-phase study conducted to better understand the nature and scope of assessment practices within capstone design courses across engineering(More)
Historically, the teaching of engineering design has varied widely, depending heavily on the design instructor. In many cases, educational outcomes cited for engineering design have focused on quality of design products and neglected the professional skills necessary for design. Recent pressures from employers of engineering graduates and accrediting(More)
Visual memory recall in hypnosis was investigated. To address criterion shift problems in previous studies, both forced and non-forced recall procedures were used. Previous methodological weaknesses with regard to hypnotizability and hypnotic depth were also addressed. Over 300 volunteers were screened for hypnotizability using the Harvard Group Scale of(More)
Through the TIDEE (Transferable Integrated Design Engineering Education) project, assessment tools and performance criteria have been developed to quantify student achievement in the engineering design process, teamwork skills, and design communication skills. A seven-point scale describes performance levels spanning from entering engineering students to(More)
Education in reproductive science is operating from an outdated paradigm of teaching and learning. Traditionally, reproductive education follows the pattern where students read a textbook, listen to instructor presentations, re-read the textbook and class notes and then complete a test. This paradigm is inefficient, costly and has not incorporated the(More)
This paper describes a one-year project that addresses a national need to build the evaluation capacity of engineering educators to effectively evaluate engineering education programs, projects, and innovations. The project goal was to lay the foundation for the construction of an inventory of evaluation tools that could be used as part of evaluation by(More)
For two years, Chapter 1 coordinators in the state of Washington periodically attended workshops and received other technical assistance concerning the use of multiple measures for selecting students into the Chapter 1 program. A survey was sent to all coordinators in the state to assess current selection practices after the two-year effort to give(More)
