AO. UNIV.-PROF. MAG. DR. MARTIN WEICHBOLD, Dean of the Faculty of Cultural and Social Sciences, University of Salzburg, Austria: ”Who is sent abroad? (…) Based on analysis of current research, with its often contradictory results, Dr. Cummings-Koether’s study spans 40 years and five continents. She conducted a very broadly conceived survey, developed her original ‘Expectation Dependency Model’ to illuminate the intricacies of international assignments, and derived concrete criteria for successful assignments.
Much is written about rigor but there are few research studies on the subject. This study by Dr. Misenheimer adds to the research on teacher's perception of the rigor present in their classroom assignments and the actual amount of rigor that is present. This study may challenge your thinking about a subject we often discuss but have very little agreement on. This study examines high school English assignments in traditional high schools grades 9-12 and one Early College.
Art education being one of the courses offered on part time like other subjects or area of specializations a short contact period leaves much to be desired. This book provides an insight into the Sandwich programme, how it is run generally in Nigeria, the nature of art (skill acquisition obtainable through varied assignments and practical) vis-a-vis how it is run by the full-time students. The book also attempted to find out the commensurability of the short contact period with the workload in Art education, thereby offering suggestions for improvement on the programme.
Revision with unchanged content. This study investigated the influence of computer-generated reminders on the rate in which distance learners submitted assignments and completed courses. The computer-generated reminders, sent via email, served as a time management support strategy. Participants were randomly divided into two groups: control and treatment. Both groups received a list of target due dates for course assignments. The control group did not receive reminders. The treatment group received reminders when they failed to submit an assignment by a target due date. The results indicated no significant difference between the control and treatment groups in terms of assignment submission rates and course completion rates. However, results of this study did reveal that the number of assignments in a distance course influences the timeliness of assignment completion and the likelihood of course completion.
A shortened assignment, as an accommodation, can help learning disabled students learn and demonstrate their knowledge. The purpose of this qualitative case study using grounded theory analysis was to explore the administration and implementation of shortened assignments for four learning disabled students and to describe the perceptions of co-teachers and parents of how shortened assignments benefit or hinder learning for these students within a co-teaching context at an urban middle school. Shortened assignments, when applied consistently and appropriately by general and special education teachers, can help learning disabled students in a variety of ways.
Culture, differences, adjustment... Is there still room for such things in our globalized world? Since companies have grown beyond national boundaries, this question has become a crucial issue for multinational enterprises. Expatriate managers’ overall performance and thus the success of international assignments considerably depends on their ability to adjust to different cultures. This thesis analyzes the impact of gender on expatriate managers’ adjustment to international assignments and its implications for cross-cultural training policies. For that reason 20 informal interviews with female and male expatriate managers in Singapore were conducted.
This project is aimed at downloading and uploading online assignments for students; with each assignment having information about the instructions, description, deadline, and submission details. The main goal of this thesis is to design and implement online assignment submission and provide an interface use for uploading test program (Nant script file) by instructors, who would be able to evaluate assignments automatically. The system provides an interface for testing assignments such that they can be plugged in by the teachers. This testing could invoke a compiler and make a test-run of the compiled code and check the result or test for plagiarism, existence of certain documents or simply check the file type (extension). The most obvious advantage offered by online assignment submission is that it offers faster transmission of assignments than using traditional way by using online system. The interface use to invoke different testing program by teachers, So Save the time and cost for teachers by enabling them to put up a fast response for students as well as increasing the quality of the feedback provided to students.
