Summary of “Academic Integrity” by Arden Miller and Adena D. Young-Jones Which one do you believe cheats more in schools, an online course or a face to face course? Arden Miller and Adena Young-Jones did an article over which one tended to be worse when they found results that were kind of shocking. Of course you expect an online course to cheat more but that was not the case. The results really varied on who the person was, sexuality, age, and other personalities of a person. Arden and Adena, both took surveys of “639 students in both types of classes.” It was easier to that the students taking the face-to-face classes cheated more than the students taking online classes.
2) Do students who took calculus in high school report different study habits, levels of academic motivation, and class attendance rates in a college calculus course, as compared with those who did not take calculus in high school? 3) Do students who took calculus in high school report putting more effort or less effort into a college calculus course, as compared with those who did not take calculus in high

University students involved in a study led by Sinclair and Cleland (2006) revealed that less than half of the scholars bothered to collect their assessment feedback. The results suggest that students are indifferent towards feedback, but research shows other variables discussed below play a role in the lack of engagement seen. Categorical and/or judgmental responses and lack of timeliness or guidance for improvements needed are major problems students face when dealing with feedback (Ferguson, 2011; Weaver, 2006; Housnsell, McCune, Hounsell, and Litjens, 2008). When these dissatisfying issues continue students can become frustrated or disinterested, which in turn can lead to a decrease in motivation to collect feedback. Additionally, when students expected grade doesn’t align with the actual grade received, students may feel there is no need to check feedback (Wojtas, 1998).
College Students since 1990". The review consisted of twenty-thousand and five hundred students being surveyed on thirty-nine campuses. The study utilized databases to search for studies in which they would find similarities by using the following terms: "depression," "college or university or graduate or junior college or community college students," "colleges," "community colleges," "treatment and prevention," "empirical study," and "peer reviewed journal." (3). Having some limitations on time periods for the study was included.
What is liberal arts education and is it essential? Robert Harris, a writer with more than twenty-five years of teaching at university level, wrote the article “On the Purpose of a Liberal Arts Education,”(1991) to help students understand the need for general education courses in their graduation requirement. He was inspired to write this article by John Henry Newman, who gave a lecture about The idea of a University. He states that studying liberal arts education makes students happier and teaches them how to think, how to learn, see things as a whole, be happier or even become a better teacher. In this article, Harris points out that studying is an exercise for the brain that develops one's intellectual abilities, also studying a wide spectrum of subjects will massage the muscles of students' mind which help them sharpen their mental skills, focus more and learn more easily.
The reports of victimization were both self and peer evaluated. After they were analyzed, “the results of 2 path models indicated that students with low social preference in highly teamed classroom environments were more victimized than low-preference students who experienced less teaming throughout the school day” (Echols 2015). This means that students who did not feel very comfortable with their peers felt victimized. These students are stuck with their class for every class, every day, for the entire year. If they feel victimized by their classmates, their academic results may suffer because of
I feel that a two-year Masters Degree program in Computer Science suits my temperament .It allows for a flexible approach to study and actually aid’s student in choosing his/her specialization. This holistic approach is best suited to research. I am convinced from the school bulletin and web pages that will provide me with the right kind of stimulating atmosphere for strengthening my research fundamentals. I will consider myself fortunate to have the honor of learning from experienced professors whose research interests coincide with mine. The carefully signed breadth and depth of course, highly distinguished faculty and the excellent research facilities and program offered by the are ideal for my objectives.
Self control is reduced due to emotional and physiological constructs such as negative emotions, fatigue (Gailliot & Baumeister 2007). Self control gets reduced among the people under stress (Heatherton & Tice 1994). (Oaten & Cheng 2005) found that exam stress among the students moderate the effect of self control. (Battaglini, Tirgle 2005) found that students with high self control can able to interact with their peers which help to increase talented friends among
It unlike some less formal types of writing, academic writing focuses on technique and how it should be used to best communicate ideas. If students learn about style and how to write essays early on in their academic careers, they find it much easier to write essays in college and university. Lecturers in the college and university have preferred styles or formatting requirements, so academic writing forces students to take these into consideration and create a paper that will impressed (eWritingService 2017). Academic English is often a good idea for students to ask for essay writing help if they are having issues with their skills, as this is something that can be solved with a little
When my group turned the project in, and it was shown to the class my teacher rewrote the assignment according to what we did and used it as an example of great work when recruiting new people. As proud as I was in this project I knew I couldn’t stop there and continued to seek out opportunities to better myself and the environment around me. Some of the favorite things I have done include attending a cyber forensics seminar and obtaining an award in a coding event for best educational game. The reason I choose Embry-Riddle as opposed to
The research methods were divided into four tasks which focused on student opinions on the “Windows vs. Apple” debate, and how universities could close the gap on those needs in an affordable manner. The survey which can be found in the Appendix along with sources which studied the changes made at Bemidji and Wilkes were used as the primary sources, while sources comparing the two platforms and the opinions of students across the country were used as the secondary sources. Task 1: Understand which platform students prefer between Apple and Windows and how large the disparity is. Determining the students’ preferences was imperative in order to establish any further case for reviewing the current computing situation. This was done by completing
After filling out FAFSA I have found my financial situation to be just short of ideal, and shown through my years of hard work and dedication to education I believe that I am qualified for the university scholarship. As a student eager to become a Temple Owl the wide variety of classes and activities would not just keep me busy outside of school, but further enhance my college experience overall. I am a student eager to study computer science, a field that connects to my interests in gaining a broader understanding of computer concepts and software. The wide options in careers including software developers are ideal for me due to the courses ' abilities to mold
I was determined to be seen as an equal. I dedicated more time towards studying and it showed when I made A’s on exams that my peers struggled with. I was finally seen as equal as others intellectually. However, I then got comments of being an “exceptional Asian.” In response I’d ask “Why do you say that?” Usually responses would be “Look how well you’re doing! Tons have dropped but you’re still here!” Normally, I would try to point out that there were other Asian students that also do well in the class, and that comments like “exceptional Asian” were uncomfortable.
I am seeking to transfer into the Computer Science Department at Texas A&M University as an Indian immigrant. To begin this process, I have been meeting with Dr. Vivek Sarin and Dr. Richard Furuta, advisors in the Computer Science & Engineering Department at Texas A&M; they recommend that I take core classes at Blinn College. My future career goals are to graduate from Texas A&M with a Master of Science in Computer Science and to obtain a job at a company such as Norton or Microsoft. Being an effective problem solver, working well with others, processing information quickly, and not giving up if I fail the first time make me a good fit for Texas A&M University. My interest in computer science was sparked when I was first exposed to a computer eleven years ago when my father came to the United States from India for the first time.
