This volume contains the edited proceedings of the sixth International Conference on Software Quality Management, SQM '98 held in April 1998 in Amsterdam, organised by the Quality Special Interest Group of the British Computer Society. These conferences attract over one hundred delegates equally from industry and academia and also equally from the UK and abroad. The objective of this series of annual conferences is to promote international co-operation among those concerned with software quality and process improvement, by creating a greater understanding of software quality issues and by sharing current research and industrial experience. The papers cover a broad spectrum of practical experience and research. The topic areas include process improvement, maintaining a quality management system, quality metrics, human factors, project management issues, software tools and approaches to systems development
The effects of positive behavior supports on academic achievement in Alabama by Ramona K Hurston( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation examined the potential effects of Positive Behavior Supports (PBS) on academic achievement in the State of Alabama as measured by the scores of the Alabama Reading and Math Test (ARMT) for fourth graders. In this study 16 districts that had already implemented PBS prior to the 2005-2006 school year, were matched with 16 like districts that had not implemented PBS. The researcher for this study used the National Center for Education Statistics website to examine the demographic data, at the school district level, for all 131 districts in the State of Alabama, then systematically paired each of the 16 PBS districts with a similar non-PBS district, based on seven indicators. The researcher matched districts based on geographic category (i.e. rural, large urban city, etc.), number of schools, number of students, number of positions that are full-time or part-time positions that equal full-time positions (i.e. two half-time positions equal one full-time position) [Full-time Equivalent] (FTE), student/teacher ratio, number of English language learners (ELL), and the racial make-up of the total population under 18. The racial categories included white, black, Hispanic or Latino, American Indian or Alaska native, Asian, and Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander. Then the ARMT scores of these 32 districts were compared between matched districts to see if there was a difference. The results revived that there was a difference between districts that had implemented PBS verses those that had not. The PBS districts had higher fourth grade ARMT scores in both reading and math. However, the difference was not statistically significant

An examination of teacher working conditions in Alabama middle schools by Farrell Brady Seymore( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this study was to determine what relationships, if any, exist between how Alabama middle school teacher perception of their principals affect student achievement and teacher attrition. Peer comparisons between elementary, middle, and high school teacher perceptions regarding their school's leadership were also examined. Using the sample of 21,252 Alabama teacher responses, including 3,402 middle school responses, statistically significant relationships were found between middle school teacher perception the school's leadership and student achievement and the likelihood that teachers remain in their current teaching position. The study also found that a statistically significant relationship exists between teacher perception of the school's principal and type of school in which a teacher works (elementary, middle, or high school). The findings from this study suggest more professional development is needed for Alabama middle school principals in the areas of school climate cultivation and instructional leadership. Mentoring of Alabama middle school principals should also be developed to train principals on specific middle grades issues
Assessing equity in advanced programs through an invitational theoretical perspective by Christy Thompson-Cabezas( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An enrollment gap in advanced courses (Honors and Advanced Placement) for Black and economically disadvantaged students as compared to their White counterparts (College Board, 2010; Klopfenstein, 2004a; Lubienski, 2002; Taliaferro & DeCuir-Gunby, 2008) has been identified in research studies but few large scale studies exploring this gap from the perspectives of both students qualified and unqualified for advanced courses exist (Klopfenstein, 2004a; Taliferro & DeCuir-Gunby, 2008). Quantitative methods were used in this current study to examine the enrollment gap in advanced courses between Black and economically disadvantaged students as compared to White advantaged students. Participants included 1,462 students from two rural high schools in Georgia. The Program Access Student Survey (PASS) was researcher developed (Cabezas & Killingsworth, 2010). Invitational theoretical framework on the six elements for inviting diversity (Schmidt, 2007) and a thorough literature review guided development of the survey items that assessed students' perceptions on equity, expectation, enlistment, empowerment, encouragement, and enjoyment. The following methods were used to establish validity of the survey: expert feedback, focus group, and a pilot test. Exploratory factor analysis supported a one-factor structure for the PASS. Additionally, one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) was the method used to measure the relationship between mean scores from the PASS and student enrollment in advanced courses. Results from the PASS indicated that there was a statistically significant difference in the perception of receiving inviting messages between Black, White, and low socioeconomic (SES) students who were enrolled in Honors and AP courses and Black, White, and low SES students who were not enrolled in Honors and AP courses. In conclusion, students who participated in advanced courses had the perception of receiving inviting messages more than students who never participated in Honors or AP. Finally, the disparity index indicated that Black and economically disadvantaged students were underrepresented in advanced programs and were therefore less likely to receive inviting messages related to advanced programs than White students. Recommendations for closing the enrollment gap are presented as well as suggestions for future research

Principals' Perceptions of the Impact of High Stakes Testing on Empowerment by Cynthia J Reed( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper reports on a qualitative study of principals' perceptions of the impact of high-stakes testing on empowerment. The data were obtained from interviews with 26 "empowered" principals in select schools participating in the South Florida Annenberg Challenge. Three questions were addressed: (1) To what degree does a school's standardized test "grade" influence a principal's sense of empowerment? (2) To what degree and in what ways is morale affected by high stakes testing? And (3) What lessons do empowered principals have to share with others about the impact that empowerment has on the quality of teaching and learning in schools? Results show that testing commonly has a negative effect on principals' sense of empowerment. Testing appears to generate a pervasive fear of failure in lower grade schools. Grade "a" schools appear to use high-stakes testing in positive ways, such as incentives to create student-enrichment programs, whereas lower grade schools focus more on meeting students' basic needs. Lessons learned from the study are that schools are complex, requiring many heads to make good decisions; trust needs to be promoted and maintained among school personnel, district office personnel, and community; and barriers are overcome when problems are viewed as challenges.
