Challenge Windzer, the mixed-blood protagonist of this compelling autobiographical novel, was born at the beginning of the twentieth century "when the god of the great Osages was still dominate over the wild prairie and the blackjack hills" of northeast Oklahoma Territory. Named by his father to be "a challenge to the disinheritors of his people," Windzer finds it hard to fulfill his destiny, despite oil money, a university education, and the opportunities presented by the Great War and the roaring twenties

Old Three Toes and other tales of survival and extinction by John Joseph Mathews( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since 1932, OU Press has published six works by John Joseph Mathews, five of which are still in print, making Mathews a quintessential OU Press author. In her introduction, Susan Kalter provides a poignant personal portrait of Mathews that traces the inspirations for and the creation of the short stories in the collection. We learn that Mathews not only wanted to create stories accessible to children and young adults but aimed to articulate his own fondness for the animal world and nature in his short fiction. The result is a collection of stories that have aged very well and that are today, fifty years after they were written, perhaps even more timely and relevant to discussions of ecology, identity, and the place of people in their environment"--

Talking to the moon by John Joseph Mathews( Book )

14 editions published between 1945 and 1981 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Following his university education and his service as a pilot in World War I, John Joseph Mathews returned to his beloved Osage country. He built a sandstone house on a blackjack-covered ridge in the midst of his ranch, and there he lived for ten years, stirred by a natural world that was still undisturbed by the demands of civilization. His observations are based on the white man's seasons as well as the Indian cycles of the moon, and he discourses upon the eccentricities of man, the behavior of animals (including the communicative talking to-the-moon coyote), and the encompassing and particular beauty of his wilderness home

Screening test battery for dental laboratory specialist course : development and validation by John Joseph Mathews( Book )

7 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The object of this study was to develop a valid replacement for the difficult to administer and costly Chalk Carving Test presently used in screening Dental Laboratory Specialist (DLS) candidates. An experimental battery of perceptual tests was given to 172 prospective DLS students. Dexterity tests were also given to a subsample. Experimental laboratory ratings and final course grades, if available, were obtained for the subjects. Tests were factor analyzed, and individual and multiple validity correlations were computed. The Chalk Carving Test presently used in screening prospective DLS students did not demonstrate significant validity with laboratory ratings or final grades. This lack of relationship seems partly due to somewhat subjective scoring reflected by a low interrater reliability. Several of the experimentally administered perceptual tests and a finger dexterity test (Peg Turning) did correlate significantly with laboratory ratings. A few perceptual tests also were valid for predicting DLS final grades

Twenty thousand mornings : an autobiography by John Joseph Mathews( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When John Joseph Mathews (1894-1979) began his career as a writer in the 1930s, he was one of only a small number of Native American authors writing for a national audience. Today he is widely recognized as a founder and shaper of twentieth-century Native American literature. Twenty Thousand Mornings is Mathews's intimate chronicle of his formative years. Written in 1965-67 but only recently discovered, this work captures Osage life in pre-statehood Oklahoma and recounts many remarkable events in early-twentieth-century history."--Provided by publisher

Reading Grade Levels of Air Force Civilian Personnel by Randy H Massey( Book )

2 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study was conducted to examine the reading levels of United States Air Force civilian employees according to occupational groupings and grade structure. Approximately 1,050 Air Force civilian subjects were tested on the Nelson-Denny Reading Test or the California Reading Test. Subjects were selected from eight Air Force bases representing the major commands. The findings demonstrated that the reading grade level and the grade classification of subjects were associated. However, many difficulties are associated with the application and interpretation of the reading grade level concept as it relates to occupational level. (Author/MKM)
Analysis Aptitude Test for Selection of Airmen for the Radio Communications Analysis Specialist Course: Development and Validation by John Joseph Mathews( Book )

2 editions published between 1977 and 1978 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objective of this study was to assess the increase in prediction of Radio Communication Analysis Specialist course performance when an Analysis Aptitude (AA) test is added to current selection instruments. Highly significant validities were obtained with AA for samples of 173 Air Force and 144 Army students. A multiple R of .7 in predicting final grades from AA and the three subtests of the Armed Forces Qualification Test (AFQT) was obtained for a subsample of 108 Army students. Minimum qualification scores of 71 percentile on AFQT and a raw score of 15 on AA were recommended for selection of students. (Author)

Prediction of Reading Grade Levels of Service Applicants from ArmedServices Vocational Aptitude Battery (Asvab). Interim Report for Period1 April 1977-1 August 1978 by John Joseph Mathews( Book )

1 edition published in 1978 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

To assess the reading ability of military service applicants and accessions, and to determine the relationship between Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (asvab) measures and reading scores, 2,432 subjects were given the Gates MacGinitie reading test and a subsample of 818 were given the Nelson-Denny reading test. The median reading grade level for service applicants was 9.0 based on Gates-MacGinitie and 9.5 based on Nelson-Denny. The median Gates-MacGinitie reading grade level of applicants who qualified for services was 10.2 compared to 5.7 for non-qualified applicants. The Armed Forces Qualification Test of the asvab correlated .76 with the average of reading grade levels for the two reading tests; the asvab General Technical (gt) composite (General Aptitude Index used by the Air Force) correlated .79. Finally, multiple correlations between the three asvab measures (work, knowledge, general science, and numeric operations); the two reading tests; and average reading grade levels were .80, .77, and .86 respectively. It was recommended that the gt composite be used as an index of reading grade level. (Author/CP)
