Women's colleges in the United States : history, issues, and challenges by Irene Harwarth( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 553 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines the role of women's colleges in the United States from the early 1800s to the present. It reviews how they began, how they changed as more colleges became coeducational, and the legality of publically supported single-sex colleges. The book also looks at what women's colleges are like today and examines differences in institutional effects for students who choose to attend women's colleges versus those who attend coeducational institutions. The four chapters, written by different authors, are titled: (1) "Women's Colleges in the United States, a Historical Context" (Elizabeth DeBra); (2) "Women's Colleges in the United States, Recent Issues and Challenges" (Irene Harwarth and Florence Fasanelli); (3) "Women's Colleges in the United States, a Statistical Portrait" (Irene Harwarth); and (4) "Women's Colleges in the United States, An Overview of Research and Questions for the Future" (Mindi Maline). An appendix contains 18 tables with data on enrollment by size and type of institution, by geographic region, and for selected years; degrees awarded; staffing at private 4-year colleges by occupational category, sex, and Carnegie classification; and average salary of full-time faculty at women's colleges by sex and Carnegie classification.

The national longitudinal study of the high school class of 1972 : annotated bibliography of studies, 1980-1992 by Mindi S Maline( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The National Longitudinal Study of the High School Class of 1972 (NLS-72) is the "grandmother" of the longitudinal studies designed and conducted by the National Center for Education Statistics, and is probably the richest archive ever assembled on a generation of Americans. Participants were selected as high school seniors in 1972 and were followed through postsecondary transcripts in 1984. In 1981, Samuel Peng assembled a bibliography of studies describing or using NLS-72 data. This publication extends Peng's work by describing the considerable number of studies published since the first bibliography. Works are arranged in the following categories: (1) general descriptions (data sets and populations); (2) methodology; (3) work (employment); (4) secondary education; (5) postsecondary education; (6) educational and occupational aspirations; (7) educational and occupational attainment; (8) gender and racial-ethnic differences; (9) vocational technical and vocational education; (10) teachers; (11) marriage, family, and life transitions; (12) economics of education; (13) testing; (14) others; and (15) tabulations. In all, 259 sources are listed and annotated with a brief description of the study and its methodology. Publication of this document coincides roughly with the release of an optical data disk with the NLS-72 data archive, manuals, and sample computer programs. (SLD)

Academic Dishonesty Among College Students. Issues in Education by Sheilah Maramark( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph addresses some common questions about academic dishonesty in higher education and reviews issues affecting these institutions in light of existing research. The extent of academic dishonesty and the perception that it is increasing is examined. Three studies cited indicate that cheating is chronic and that 60 to 75 percent of students do cheat. A look at causes of cheating include ignorance of concepts such as collaboration, fair-use, and plagiarism, and also stress, and competition for jobs, scholarships, and admission to post-college programs. Research indicates that cheating depends significantly on situational characteristics of the classroom or institutions and that cheating is less likely to occur when there are threats of detection or sanctions. Faculty reaction research suggests that despite concerns, faculty rarely discuss rules on academic dishonesty in their classrooms. Findings also indicate that faculty often bypass university policy and handle cheating incidents on an individual basis. Research on how institutions respond to cheating incidents finds that key issues are: how academic dishonesty is defined, how cases are assessed, and how cheating is monitored. The paper concludes that institutions must take a proactive stance to reduce the incidence of cheating and to improve the climate for honesty. Contains 44 notes and 3 references. (JB)
