Abstract: According to a number of post-Sovietologists, the international politics involving the post-Soviet states since 1991 have gradually turned into the new theater of a mini-Cold War between the United States and Russia. This paper investigates this argument by exploring the extent and reasons behind United States and Russian documented formal and informal involvement in the electoral processes in Georgia and the Ukraine. It also offers a model mechanism (via network analysis) to illustrate the effects and effectiveness of such involvement. Mixed motives have been offered for this US-Russian competition for influence in the post-Soviet landscape. Moscow appears eager to reassert its authority in the near abroad to ensure the cooperation of former Republics in a range of issues (commerce, anti-terrorism), but the potential domestic political calculations of an increasingly authoritarian Russian president must also be accounted for. Washington?s foreign policy rhetoric indicates a strong interest in the active promotion of democracy, but they may be superceded by strategic considerations in the global war on terror and in strengthening diplomatic and military ties with the new states. First, the paper presents the two cases, with field work research material from the two elections, and an analysis of the Foreign Policies of the US and Russia relating to the two states. Further, it explores the effects of informal, non-governmental involvement and these organizations? agendas. Next, a theoretical section briefly presents the major IR theories and then the paper applies them to the conduct of the United States and Russia in the region, as well as to the foreign policy formulations of the Saakashvili and Yushchenko governments. Further, it offers a model for mobilization networks applicable to the two elections to illustrate the mechanism behind the role and effects such external involvement played in these events. Finally, the study concludes with an assessment on the future interactions involving this quartet of players, and the lessons for other post-Soviet states.

Abstract: The present study aims at testing whether the administration of a pre-test has a direct effect on post-test scores (practice effect) and/or an indirect effect by making participants more receptive to the intervention (pre-test sensitization) in the context of digital game-based learning (DGBL). For this purpose, an effectiveness study of a fire safety training in a hospital was conducted using a Solomon four-group design. The four conditions in our study were DGBL intervention with or without pre-test and slide-based lecture with or without pre-test. A 2x2 ANOVA showed an interaction effect between pre-test and intervention indicating pre-test sensitization. More specifically, a pre-test influence is only detected in the slide-based lecture, leading to positively biased scores among participants receiving a pre-test before the slide-based lecture. Both game groups, however, outperformed both slide-based groups, showing that the DGBL training was more effective than the slide-based lecture regarding performance.
