Abstract: This paper looks into the question of whether alliances become less reliable over time. Due to changing circumstances and declining efficiency, it expects that an old ally will become less reliable. By using a hazard model, it tests the argument.

Abstract: Accelerating oil import dependence in energy consuming nations highlights the importance of having energy supplies at sufficient levels and at stable and reasonable prices. Consequently, it is crucial that oil exporters realize their full production potential. Current debates on energy security are often focused on short-term risks e.g. sudden disruptions due to wars, domestic instability etc. However, when it comes to assessing oil supplier reliability it is equally important to assess their longer term ability and willingness to deliver oil to the global market. This study analyzes the effects of petroleum policies on crude oil production trends in 14 major oil producing countries (2000-2010) by focusing on the political-institutional frameworks that shape the investment conditions for the upstream oil sector. Our findings indicate that countries with closed resource-nationalist oil sector frameworks dominated by state-ownership systematically performed worse than countries with investor friendly and privatized sectors. The findings indicate that assessments based on remaining reserves and planned production capacities alone could inflate expectations about future oil supplies in a world where remaining crude reserves are located in countries with unfavorable investment frameworks.

Abstract: Through a school district/university partnership, the reliability of a teacher evaluation observation instrument is undertaken, resulting in two major findings. First, establishing the overall inter-rater reliability of an instrument may be problematic as reliability coefficients are not stable across teacher ability levels. Second, evaluators, while having a keen sense of high quality teaching, seem to have a much less consistent idea of poor quality teaching. The findings can have broad impact on teacher evaluation.

"Understanding of the Reliability of the NIBRS: A Proof of Concept Paper for Improving NIBRS Reliability" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ASC Annual Meeting, San Francisco Marriott, San Francisco, California, <Not Available>. 2019-11-16 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p432132_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: One underlying, and often unspecified, assumption of research utilizing the FBI’s NIBRS is that the FBI’s required edit and error checks improve the overall reliability of the data. An examination of these checks indicates that the FBI’s efforts are fairly limited and focused on certain critical areas of the data leaving open numerous opportunities for errors in reliability throughout the data. To date there have been no published efforts to incorporate a reverse records check to validate the reliability of the national database against the state and local agency data. One explanation for this lack is the FBI’s NIBRS database uses an encrypted incident number, which, in theory, prevents a reverse record lookup. To gain a better understanding of the reliability of the NIBRS this project will work in collaboration with the Massachusetts Crime Reporting Unit to develop a methodology for circumventing the encrypted incident numbers. Once the circumvented incident number is developed it will be validated using a state level data system which contains the original local agency incident numbers. The merged data system will be compared for accuracy on several key data elements. The final component of the project is to match the arrestee details provided on the NIBRS with the same arrestee details on a separate arrestee database maintained by the Massachusetts Crime Reporting Unit. The intent of the project is to demonstrate the ability of merging the NIBRS with other state and local level data systems to add additional details to the NIBRS.

"Using Studies of Reliability Seeking Organizations to Help Principals Transform Low Productive Schools into High Reliability Organizations" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the UCEA Annual Convention, Sheraton New Orleans, New Orleans, Louisiana, Oct 28, 2010 Online <APPLICATION/PDF>. 2019-11-16 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p437643_index.html>

Abstract: Can studies of reliability-seeking organizations help principals transform low-performing schools into highly reliable schools? This study validates the application of high reliability theory (HRT) beyond high-risk complex organizations such as nuclear power plants and air traffic controllers to mainstream organizations such as schools. When equipped with the knowledge of how to infuse HRT into their schools, principals can transform their school to produce more reliable outcomes for teachers and students.
