Critical condition : replacing critical thinking with creativity by Patrick Finn( )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 842 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Should we stop teaching critical thinking? Meant as a prompt to further discussion, Critical Condition questions the assumption that every student should be turned into a "critical thinker." The book starts with the pre-Socratics and the impact that Socrates' death had on his student Plato and traces the increasingly violent use of critical "attack" on a perceived opponent. From the Roman militarization of debate to the medieval Church's use of defence as a means of forcing confession and submission, the early phases of critical thinking were bound up in a type of attack that Finn suggests does not best serve intellectual inquiry. Recent developments have seen critical thinking become an ideology rather than a critical practice, with levels of debate devolving to the point where most debate becomes ad hominem. Far from arguing that we abandon critical inquiry, the author suggests that we emphasize a more open, loving system of engagement that is not only less inherently violent but also more robust when dealing with vastly more complex networks of information. This book challenges long-held beliefs about the benefits of critical thinking, which is shown to be far too linear to deal with the twenty-first century world."--Publisher's description

Pre-codex to post-codex : editorial theory in the second incunabulum by Patrick Finn( Book )

3 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This project studies the ways recent changes in cultural theory and information technology are influencing the delivery of texts, and how these changes signal a need for innovation in editing practice. The word incunabulum describes the material objects produced in the early stages of the development of a technology; most commonly, it refers to printing during the period just before the turn of the sixteenth century when material textuality in the west was changing from a manuscript to a print base. According to critics of digital culture like Janet Murray the current shift to digital media entails many of the same changes. Following this, I will refer to this period as the second incunabulum. Given the limitations of HTML and SGML markup and storage technologies used in early digitization projects, scholars realize that the second incunabular period, much like the first, will not be a simple linear change succession. Just as the shift from manuscript to print involved a multifaceted series of complex social and practical transformations over decades, our current technological transition generates a wide variety of communicative, cultural, and political implications. As a critical point of entry, the comparison of the first and second incunabular periods offers insight into the ways in which past practices can help us approach our textual future. As a broad study of highly particular textual practices, the current work presents something of a paradox. However, through a series of focused historical readings and formal applications, this trans-historical study provokes questions that may lead to effective new work in the field. In Theories of the Text, leading editorial theorist D.C. Greetham points out the need to study the same three projects that I examine: William Langland's Piers Plowman, The Oxford Shakespeare, and James Joyce's Ulysses. By examining the editorial practices underlying each work, I develop a theory of editing based on a form of philological critique that engages with problems faced by many current research projects and which provides suggestions for further research

Algorithms for Developing Test Questions from Sentences in Instructional Materials An Extension of an Earlier Study by Gale H Roid( Book )

2 editions published between 1978 and 1980 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this effort was to extend or replicate an earlier study that examined the feasibility of generating multiple-choice test questions by transforming sentences from prose instructional materials. In that study, a computer-based algorithm was used to analyze prose subject matter and to identify high-information words. Sentences containing selected words were than transformed into multiple-choice items by four writers who generated foils or question alternatives informally and by an algorithmic method. These items were then organized into tests and administered to 24 college students before and after they had studied the instructional materials

The feasibility of generating multiple-choice test questions by transforming sentences from prose instructional materials was examined. A computer-based algorithm was used to analyze prose subject matter and to identify high-information words. Sentences containing selected words were then transformed into multiple-choice items by four writers who generated foils or question alternatives informally and by an algorithmic method. Items were organized into tests and administered to college students before and after they had studied instructional materials. Results indicated that this item-writing technique was feasible, and that algorithmic methods of generating foils produce items of reasonably good quality. (Author/CTM)

Evaluating health-related quality of life in African-Americans with aphasia by Davetrina Seles Gadson( )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Health-related quality of life (HRQL) provides insight into the impacts of a health condition on an individual's ability to lead a fulfilling life. Previous research has identified determinants of HRQL in stroke survivors with aphasia, including communication, mobility, mental/emotional health, role, and social functioning. However, the extent to which these determinants are quantified in African-Americans with aphasia is unknown. Building upon previous research, this study attempts to gain a better understanding of HRQL in African-Americans and the role of social support and social network on HRQL in this population. Specifically, the aim of this study was to explore the determinants of HRQL in a homogenous sample of African-Americans which included stroke survivors with aphasia (PWA), stroke survivors without aphasia (PSA) and successfully aging/healthy adults with no history of neurological injury (SAH). This study used a cross-sectional case-control descriptive research design. A total of 39 male and female African-American adults participated in the study, with 13 participants included in each group (PWA, PSA, and SAH). Participants completed one language assessment and four patient-reported outcomes that assessed HRQL, perceived social support, and social network. The patient-reported outcomes for HRQL included both a condition-specific measure, the Stroke and Aphasia Quality of Life Scale-39g (SAQOL-39g), and a generic measure, EuroQol-5D (EQ-5D). Results indicated that PWA reported a significantly lowered overall HRQL than PSA and SAH adults on the SAQOL-39g. On the generic measure of HRQL, PWA reported a significantly lower overall HRQL than SAH adults, but no difference in overall HRQL was noted between PWA and PSA on the EQ-5D. PWA demonstrated significantly lower reports in specific domains related to communication and social HRQL than both PSA and SAH. A moderator regression analysis revealed that aphasia did not affect HRQL differently depending on social support or social network. Overall PWA reported a worse HRQL than PSA even when their physical abilities, role functioning, and mental/emotional health were comparable. Implications and limitations are discussed
