The Role of Information in the Selection Process of a Primary Care Physician

The Role of Information in the Selection Process of a Primary Care Physician

Date: December 1993
Creator: Butler, E. Sonny
Description: There is a paucity of information about the various factors that influence the selection of primary care physicians. Also, the relative significance of these factors is not known, making it difficult to properly address ways to improve the information flow to patients when they select a primary care physician.

Information Management in Local Area Networks: Impact on Users' Perceptions

Information Management in Local Area Networks: Impact on Users' Perceptions

Date: May 1994
Creator: Norton, Melanie J.
Description: In this study, computer human interaction factors are examined as a possible source of information to aid in the operation and management of local area computer networks. Users' perceptions of computer performance and response time are evaluated in relation to specific modifications in the information organization of a file server in a local area network configuration running in Novell 3.11.

The Effects of Computer Performance Assessment on Student Scores in a Computer Applications Course

Date: July 1994
Creator: Casey, Sue Hartness
Description: The goal of this study was to determine if performance-based tests should be routinely administered to students in computer application courses. The purpose was to determine the most appropriate mode of testing for individuals taking a computer applications course. The study is divided into areas of assessment, personality traits, and computer attitudes.

Diagnosing Learner Deficiencies in Algorithmic Reasoning

Diagnosing Learner Deficiencies in Algorithmic Reasoning

Date: May 1995
Creator: Hubbard, George U.
Description: It is hypothesized that useful diagnostic information can reside in the wrong answers of multiple-choice tests, and that properly designed distractors can yield indications of misinformation and missing information in algorithmic reasoning on the part of the test taker. In addition to summarizing the literature regarding diagnostic research as opposed to scoring research, this study proposes a methodology for analyzing test results and compares the findings with those from the research of Birenbaum and Tatsuoka and others. The proposed method identifies the conditions of misinformation and missing information, and it contains a statistical compensation for careless errors. Strengths and weaknesses of the method are explored, and suggestions for further research are offered.

Information Use Environment of Self-managed Teams : A Case Study

Information Use Environment of Self-managed Teams : A Case Study

Date: May 1996
Creator: Barnes, Deborah M. (Deborah Manning)
Description: This research investigated how self-managed teams get the information they need to perform their job tasks. Two important factors prompted this study: the growing importance of self-managed teams in the workplace and the impact of the information system on team performance.

Library CD-ROM LAN Performance and Patron Use: a Computer Simulation Model

Library CD-ROM LAN Performance and Patron Use: a Computer Simulation Model

Date: May 1996
Creator: Xia, Hong
Description: In this study, a computer simulation model for library CD-ROM LAN systems was created. Using this model, the system optimization problems were examined. The simulation model imitated the process of the actual decision variables changing their values and generated the corresponding results. Under a certain system environment, if the values of decision variables are changing, the system performances are getting changed also. This study investigated these relationships with the created model. The system users' interarrival time, service time, and other relevant data were collected on randomly selected days in a university library. For data collection, both of the observation and the system automatic metering software were used. According to the collected data, a discrete events simulation model was created with GPSS/H. The simulation model was proven valid and accurate by a pilot test and by the calculation with queuing theory. Statistical tests were used for data comparison and analysis. In addition, animation technique was used to show the simulation process by using Proof Animation. By this technique, the simulation process was monitored on the screen.

Increasing Telecommunications Channel Capacity: Impacts on Firm Profitability

Increasing Telecommunications Channel Capacity: Impacts on Firm Profitability

Date: August 1997
Creator: Clower, Terry L.
Description: In calling for the deployment of high-capacity telecommunications infrastructures, the Clinton Administration is relying on market forces to drive demand toward self-sustaining development. There is little doubt that many firms will embrace the new telecommunications services for a variety of reasons including market differentiation, vertical market integration, and other organization-specific factors. However, there is little evidence at the firm level that adopting the use of increased-capacity telecommunications technologies is associated with improvements in firm profitability. This study seeks to identify the presence of impacts on firm income that can be associated with the adoption of T1 telecommunications services.

Virtual Reality for Scientific Visualization: an Exploratory Analysis of Presentation Methods

Virtual Reality for Scientific Visualization: an Exploratory Analysis of Presentation Methods

Date: August 1997
Creator: Hetsel, Gene A. (Gene Arthur)
Description: Humans are very effective at evaluating information visually. Scientific visualization is concerned with the process of presenting complex data in visual form to exploit this capability. A large array of tools is currently available for visual presentation. This research attempts to evaluate the effectiveness of three different presentation models that could be used for scientific visualization. The presentation models studied were, two-dimensional perspective rendering, field sequential stereoscopic three dimensional rendering and immersive virtual reality rendering. A large section of a three dimensional sub surface seismic survey was modeled as four-dimensional data by including a value for seismic reflectivity at each point in the survey. An artificial structure was randomly inserted into this data model and subjects were asked to locate and identify the structures. A group of seventeen volunteers from the University of Houston student body served as subjects for the study. Detection time, discrimination time and discrimination accuracy were recorded. The results showed large inter subject variation in presentation model preference. In addition the data suggest a possible gender effect. Female subjects had better overall performance on the task as well as better task acquisition.
