1. Loggins, Ginger. "Do Racial Descriptors Work for Crimes Stoppers? The Utility of Suspect Race in Broadcast Descriptions" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication, The Renaissance, Washington, DC, Aug 08, 2007 Online <APPLICATION/PDF>. 2019-10-18 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p204238_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: Thanks to the prevalence of Crime Stoppers, suspect descriptions are used in news broadcasts across the country. In this study, Black and White university students watched a news story that described a suspect wanted in an armed robbery. The explicitness of the robber’s race (stated or implied) and his race (White/Black) was manipulated. Findings support the use of racially implicit descriptions. Those and related findings are discussed as they relate to newsroom policies concerning suspect descriptions.

2. Fitzpatrick, Colleen. "An Adjective is More Than Just a Word: An Analysis of Gender Descriptors in Non-Fiction Work" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the National Women's Studies Association, Cincinnati Netherland Plaza, Cincinnati, OH, <Not Available>. 2019-10-18 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p661573_index.html>
Publication Type: Individual Paper
Abstract: Non-fiction works are generally credited for a “true” perspective on historical and current topics. As readers delve into their favorite works, however, the underlying commentary about gender may be missed. In current books ranging from a critical analysis of personal finance to an in-depth examination of contemporary single life in the US, the descriptions authors provide of participants in their work reinforce gendered stereotypes. Most notably, authors highlight the physical characteristics of women such as hair, eye color, and weight, while the physical attributes of men are rarely mentioned. This research will closely examine this trend in today’s contemporary non-fiction works.

"From Theory to Practice: The Challenging Task of Developing Mediation Descriptors for the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR)" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the AAAL Annual Conference, Fairmont Royal York, Toronto, ON, Canada, Mar 21, 2015 <Not Available>. 2019-10-18 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p958157_index.html>

Abstract: “Mediation” is defined differently in different contexts. The CEFR introduced the concept of textual mediation and more recently broader interpretations of mediation are proving relevant. The presentation explains implications of mediation for SLE, describes current development and validation of CEFR descriptors for mediation and discusses implications for practice and research.

4. Hudelson, Matthew. "Adapting Hosoya's Topological Index as a Local Vertex Environment Descriptor" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the The Mathematical Association of America MathFest, TBA, Madison, Wisconsin, Jul 28, 2008 <Not Available>. 2019-10-18 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p275264_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: Introduced in 1971 by Haruo Hosoya, the “Hosoya index”—also called the topological index or Z index—of a structure enumerates the number of ways of partitioning the set of atoms into singletons and bonded pairs. We demonstrate adaptations of the Hosoya index that characterize the local environment of vertices within graphs. One such adaptation will be shown to link leaves of caterpillar graphs with continued fraction representations of rational numbers. We show how to link together two local Hosoya indices to facilitate quick sorting and comparison of local environments, specifically applied to analysis of organic chemical compounds.

5. Anderson, Salena. "Linguistic Agency in International English Language Testing Rubrics and Band Descriptors for Writing" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the AAAL Annual Conference, Portland Marriott Downtown Waterfront, Portland, OR, Mar 22, 2014 <Not Available>. 2019-10-18 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p700779_index.html>
Publication Type: Individual Paper
Review Method: Peer Reviewed
Abstract: This study offers a grammatical analysis of writing rubrics and band descriptors for TOEFL and IELTS. For both tests, more linguistic agency, in the form of verbs that take agents, defines descriptors for higher scoring essays. IELTS makes more overall reference to writer or textual agency than TOEFL.
