Abstract: Abstract:
The problem for this study was that faculty in the department of Communications were reporting that many students enrolled in the program seem to be under-prepared for the coursework involved with the Communication Arts major. Efforts to alleviate this problem included the design of a minimum standards skills assessment for incoming majors to determine entry levels of preparation. Prior to this exam, there had been no departmental standard of measuring basic skill requirements necessary for the major. However, it was not known what effect administering the exam would have on student success rates and retention.
The purpose of this study was to test the notion that students considering the Communication major might be better served by a departmental performance requirement to enter the major, similar to the entrance requirement of other performing arts majors such as art, theater or music. To test that notion, a study was conducted that compared student success rates in the Communication major, as evidenced by student GPAs in the major, between students who achieved the cutoff score or higher on a minimum standards departmental assessment exam with students who did not achieve the cutoff score on the departmental assessment exam. If students who achieved a cutoff score on a minimum standards departmental assessment exam perform better in the program (as measured by their GPA within the major) than students who do not meet the cutoff score, then the exam might be considered as a new departmental tool in helping to predict student success in the program, and consequently perhaps, graduation rates.

Abstract: This study aims to examine the relationship between student engagement, achievement, and whether humor can harmonize the relationship between teacher and student. Student perception assessment scale and feedback survey will be used to assess the relationship between class humor and students’ engagement, students’ achievement, and students’ perception. Moreover, one-way ANOVA will be used to measure class humor, students’ engagement, students’ perception, and students’ achievement. Correlation will conduct the relationship between class humor and students’ perception, engagement, and achievement. In addition, liner regression will be used to analyze the indirect effect of mediator variable—engagement.

Abstract: Criminal Justice Students learn in formal and informal ways in a university environment. Formal instruction is conducted in traditional classroom settings. Among the opportunities for informal learning is the participation by Criminal Justice students in various student organizations such as ACJA/LAE, APS, and ACA or various school sponsored Criminal Justice Clubs. This study attempts to measure the effects perceived by students of their participation in student organizations on student grade point averages (GPA)using survey research involving students involved in Criminal Justice organizations.

Abstract: Due to the impact of the Egyptian pound floatation on the operation of the American University in Cairo (AUC), students have been on a strike. Accordingly, community psychology students felt the need to conduct a needs assessment of the students and workers; and an assets assessment of the university and the community. Correspondingly, based on what they have learned during the semester, they decided to work on enhancing the sense of community, in addition to engaging community members in the process. Thus, conduct a photovoice; a participatory action research (PAR), which aims to give the voice to the participants to tell their story from their perspective. It is an innovative research methodology; which gives the participants a chance to actively aid in collecting the data. Participants in this study will be asked to answer certain questions through photos from their surrounding and later get a chance to tell the story of the picture.
The PAR is designed to target three groups at AUC; namely, foreign students, Egyptian students, workers and staff. Students will be divided into groups; who will be in charge or others in the community. Their task is to explain the process to them and get them to participate in collecting the data, based on their consent. The main purpose is to collect data about how they perceive AUC, what are its strengths and what are the ideal component of AUC, what are their individual needs, what are stigmas and stereotypes that challenge them, and how can things be changed to the better. Accordingly, students can collect action oriented data, that would lead to recommendations for change and be passed on to decision makes. Lastly, an exhibition is organized for the AUC community to get to know about the project and hear the voices of the participants.

Abstract: The purpose of this study was to examine relationships between student-student rapport, instructor-student rapport, and classroom connectedness, perceived student participation, affective learning, and cognitive learning. Students (N= 232) reported on their perceptions of interpersonal interactions with instructors and peers. Results show that instructor rapport and classmate rapport were related to perceptions of classroom connectedness. Instructor rapport, student rapport, and classroom connectedness were positively related to participation. However, only instructor rapport emerged as significant predictor of participation, affective learning, and cognitive learning.
