Science in liberal arts colleges: a longitudinal study of 49 selective colleges by W. Rodman Snelling( Book )

5 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book will provide administrators, educators, and counselors in secondary and higher education environments with significant data on the influences behind a student's decision to choose a particular college. Specifically, it provides descriptions of some temporal and behavioral aspects of the liberal arts science graduates' decisions to enter the sciences and to choose the liberal arts college: when students form vocational judgments about entering the science; at what stage of their education the choice of a specific field is made; and what graduates perceive as major influences determining such choices. Prepared under the auspices of the Research Corporation, the study considers five categories (biology, pre-medicine, chemistry, mathematics, and physics) of graduates from 49 private four-year liberal arts colleges of acknowledged high quality. Data were extracted from responses to a six-page questionnaire completed by 16,395 science majors graduated during 1958-1967. Findings show that nearly half of the science majors responding had decided their major by the time they were in the ninth grade, although the specific science was not usually decided upon until later. Pre-medical students made their decisions the earliest, closely followed by those majoring in physics. (Author/PR)

Randomized experiments for planning and evaluation : a practical guide by Robert F Boruch( Book )

16 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How can you tell if a new program has been effective or not? Is there any way to predict how a group of individuals would have fared without the new program or service? Packed with rich and varied examples, Robert F. Boruch's book untangles the complexities of randomized field experiments so that researchers can better evaluate the impact of new programs. Beginning with an exploration of how to judge whether or not a program worked (and for how much), Boruch explores the context of experiments; the standards used to judge the ethical propriety of randomized experiments; methods for studying populations; and sampling methods, including pilot tests and arrangements for random allocation

ROBERT F. BORUCH AND ROBERT W. PEARSON During the 13th Century. a vigorous argument among Middle Eastern rabbis concerned how one ought to make a fair assessment of an olive crop value for tithing purposes. Should one consolidate the crop. systematically mix the olives. and then conscientiously draw a small random sample? Or. might one simply grab a handful of olives from the nearest basket and make an estimate of the crop's worth. The issue. of course. is one that research designers and research users confront often -- balancing the need for information against the resources that must be put into actually collecting the data -- in deciding how much effort is warranted to produce fair evidence. For the rabbis. who argued for twenty-five years over the matter. the issue can be resolved with a special rule. In this as in other cases. if the demand for information is biblical in origin -- if God is its source. then one ought to be considerably conscientious; a more scientific and more expensive endeavor is warranted. We may at times subscribe to this kind of rule of thumb in determining what quality of information is warranted under what conditions. But other rules and approaches are possible. And as medieval Jewish. Arabic. and Christian philosophy suggests. the alternatives need to be thought out and tested. Our interest is a bit more contemporary but has some spiritual kinship with early scholars' interest in empirical evidence

The coverage includes framing the questions, searching literature, computing effect sizes, and portraying results on 'what works'
