Research Design This study will use a qualitative, descriptive research methodology. Qualitative research can be defined as an overarching concept of several forms of research which help to illuminate and explain the meaning of phenomenon in social settings (Merriam, 1998). The data collection methodologies included in qualitative research are observations, interviews, and analysis of written documents and artifacts (Patton, 2002). The interview using the guide questions will allow for greater analysis of individual depth and detail. The case study method is the preferred choice of methodology given that it allows the researcher to explore additional avenues of information that may arise in the case study of the participating higher education institution (HEI).
Interpretation is the main purpose in an inquiry discussion question because interpretations will be different for every student. Interpretation questions stimulate conversation and appeal to the text for evidence. A good interpretive question composes questions from the text to prepare discussion and forces the leader to work with ideas about its meaning. The characteristics for good interpretive questions are that they should make you think and have you doubt yourself. When you are going to answer there should be two
This academic journal defines and goes in depth about stereotype threat. In the beginning of the journal, the authors give real life example of stereotype threats and how they negative affect people. They then go on to define what stereotype threat is. The rest of the journal explores the psychology behind stereotype threat and why people continue to fall victim to it. I picked this article people it spoke about and explained stereotype threat in an educational and scientifically way, while still making it easy to understand.
The hierarchical structure that dominates pedagogy today ensures just that. Students are expected to adapt the “humility of a worm” (Campbell 472) in order to successfully develop and portray the correct self, which becomes completely dependent on the opinions of the professor. This is the way in which the self develops when emphasis is placed on judging instead of coaching. The students are judged in light of what Faigley described as the professor’s “unstated cultural definitions of the self” (Faigley
Next, the instructors should emphasize the importance of academic achievement. In so doing, the students will have the need for achievement as the dominant motivating driver and thus will result in the tendency to accomplish assignments. In addition, the both students and teachers should identify the factors that result in dissatisfaction and try to eliminate them while at the same time embracing those that lead to
The purpose of our research was to study this problem in greater depth. In particular, we wanted. Additionally, the study provides brief statements regarding the elements that can make a person cheat and examine the effects of it in the future life. Moreover, the main cause of cheating and plagiarism has been highlighted in the paper as well. The main point of the research identifies the pros and cons of cheating and plagiarisms from both students and teachers.
This objective measurement aims at highlighting the causes for why the depression is occurring, and whether or not the university factors are the primary cause for the onset of depression (Schrag, 1992). Moreover, this methodological approach will help provide reliability and validity for the study. The researcher will use quantitative methods such as questionnaires and surveys in order to follow the objective nature of the positivist research paradigm.
David Nussbaum, Geoffrey Cohen, and Eliot R in the article "Deflecting the Trajectory and Changing the Narrative: How Self-Affirmation Affects Academic Performance and Motivation Under Identity Threat." (2013), talks about how students performance based on their background in the United States and the gap of performances there is through race. The researches start off with the main factors of using some of their research from social psychological testing of students from different races to see the long periods of time and understand how they can shape their academic identities. Sherman, David, Kimberly Hartson, Kevin Binning, Valerie Purdie-Vaughns, Julio Garcia, Suzanne Taborsky-Barba, Sarah Tomassetti purpose is about the types of bases of the academic performance about the different types of races and ethnics. This article goes for people who want to understand the social psychological view of academic performances of different
In the article, Do Ethnic Studies Classes Have Academic Benefits? It is stated that, “The way that we teach our history and culture… the way that we exclude and minimize certain groups and their experiences, while privileging others, feeds prejudice and negative stereotypes.” The article, Stanford Study Suggests Academic Benefits To Ethnic Studies Courses implies that, “Culturally relevant pedagogy embeds several features of interventions designed to reduce stereotype threat, such as explaining stereotypes and identifying external forces that contribute to academic challenges.”.... Camille Z. Charles makes it aware that,”I tell my students that prejudice and discrimination is in our cultural DNA, because the vast majority of American holidays and rituals, and our understanding of American history and culture, all of these things reinforce the superiority of Anglo-American or white American history and experience.” These findings show how we can extinguish the negative caricatures that were placed upon
First, the person would ask why they take an on-line course. Then, the researcher would quantify the results by measuring the occurrences of responses. Finally, the responses are converted into percentages and the relationship between variables is examined. The goal of the study is to find the most prevalent answer and determine the stressors an average student experiences. For example, the most common answer could be that people need to work full-time in order to afford to attend classes.
