"A Comparison of the Transparency of Articulation and Checks and Balances Among Financial Statements Between the Present Format and the Proposed new Format" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Oklahoma Research Day, Cameron University, Lawton, OK, Nov 04, 2011 <Not Available>. 2019-10-14 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p546933_index.html>

Abstract: When teaching students how to prepare financial statements, articulation of information among the statements serves as both a teaching tool and one of the checks and balances for accuracy. The articulation is transparent in traditional statements. Using a spreadsheet, we demonstrate articulation and control checks and balances for traditional financial statements and for the proposed new financial statement format and compare the two. The resulting teaching tool provides vivid color coding to emphasize both the articulation and system control checks in real time. Students immediately see the effect of each transaction on the entire financial statements. Professors can use this spreadsheet as a classroom demonstration and share it with students to use for homework.

"Comparing The Effectiveness Of Modified Likert Scale Format (Wang) With Modified Harter’S Structured Alternative Format (Wang) With 4- And 6-Category Among Chinese Elementary And Secondary School Students" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the MWERA Annual Meeting, Sheraton Westport Plaza Tower Hotel, St Louis, Missouri, Oct 12, 2011 Online <PDF>. 2019-10-14 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p522342_index.html>

Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to investigate the effectiveness and reliability of three different scale formats: Wang’s modified Likert Scale Format (WLSF) and Wang’s modified Harter’s Structured Alternative Format (WSAF) with 4- and 6-Category. The data used in this study was obtained from 521 elementary and secondary school students in Dalian, China. Each participant answered the 106-item questionnaires in three scale formats. The raw data was transferred into Rasch measures by using WINSTEPS. These Rasch measures were then analyzed through t-test and ANOVA. Reliability for each subscale and item structure were also obtained from Rasch analyses. The results showed that all three scale formats were reliable and sensitive with relatively stable structure. Students perceived themselves highest in WSAF with 4-category.

Abstract: The prevalence of media use in the lives of children makes it essential that efforts to promote their character development (i.e., a component of positive youth development) capitalize on effective digital media formats. Yet, there is a lack of research on the use of different digital formats in promoting character, particularly among elementary school students. This study thus examined student’s engagement with two distinct formats – a graphic novel versus a video game – as part of their participation in the Arthur Interactive Media (AIM) program, a media-based character education program that engages children in discussions intended at helping children develop character virtues such as forgiveness and generosity. We asked if student engagement in the program differed based on whether the digital format was a graphic novel or video game?

Whereas both graphic novels and video games show promise in promoting character development their formats may yield distinct outcomes. Graphic novels present more diverse voices and offer greater perspectives. The use of images in graphic novels also increases reader participation because readers must infer what happens across story transitions. Alternatively, video games encourage players to evaluate situations, change attitudes, and create new knowledge. Videos games also offer the opportunity to practice decision-making and reflect on the consequences of specific decisions.

Participants were 144 fourth and fifth graders (48% female) recruited from three elementary schools in the Northeastern U.S. Students participated in the AIM program, including cross-age peer engagement with a graphic novel focused on the topic of forgiveness and a video game focused on the topic of generosity. Quantitative self-report measures assessing student engagement with the media were administered after each topic and included items on individual media enjoyment, discussion of character virtues, and sharing of feelings. A paired sample analysis across all participants indicated there were no significant differences in overall student engagement between the graphic novel and video game formats. However, a comparison across gender showed that girls reported sharing more feelings when interacting with the video game than with the graphic novel.

The present findings suggest future research should investigate not only how factors related to media (i.e., digital format) influence student engagement, but also factors related to the individual, particularly in character education programs that focus on relating the self to others. Additional analyses will also be used to demonstrate whether the content may in fact moderate children’s engagement with the different formats.

Abstract: The developed literature on national identity and the media lacks both a firm evidentiary base for many core claims and benchmark data on media impacts at the level of the individual. This paper makes use of a recent Australian national sample survey to explore the strength, direction and causes of media effects upon national identification. Results show that conventional media technologies and the consumption of lowbrow genres tend to strengthen orthodox national identity. By contrast the Internet and highbrow genres lead to a more inclusive sense of national belonging. Genre effects are generally stronger than technology effects. Media effects are robust and of a comparable magnitude to those of familiar socio-demographic control variables.
