Effect of Resource Availability on Dyadic Fitness

Effect of Resource Availability on Dyadic Fitness

Date: August 2010
Creator: Neves, Ana Barbara Vieira Sinay
Description: College students participating in dyads played a game designed as an analog of early hunters whose survival, as a dyad and ultimately individually, depend on rabbits they hunt. Dyadic fitness was defined as both participants being able to hunt and it was measured by the proportion of trials in a condition that both participants hunted. The effects of scarcity (alternating rich and poor conditions) on dyadic fitness were examined in two experiments. First experiment results did not show a difference in dyadic fitness as a function of the independent variable. The second experiment increased the number of hunting seasons and also the discrepancy between scarcity in rich and poor seasons. Second experiment results show that dyads start fit in rich seasons and become increasingly fit in poor seasons. External variables could not be ruled out; therefore, additional experiments still need to be carried out to clarify results.

A systematic replication of the Family Connections parent-toddler training program.

A systematic replication of the Family Connections parent-toddler training program.

Date: May 2009
Creator: Newcomer, Andrea L.
Description: As more toddlers are being diagnosed with autism there is an increased need for very early intervention. Preliminary research on interventions suggests toddlers can make important developmental progress and that parents can be part of the intervention process. The purpose of this study was to systematically replicate a parent training program reported by Alai-Rosales et al. (2009). Specifically, the present study taught parents a set of teaching strategies that included arranging the environment, setting up learning opportunities, and using positive reinforcement. Baseline-intervention conditions were replicated across four parent-toddler dyads in order to assess the effects of training on parent and child behaviors. Results indicated increases in parent teaching behaviors, the child targeted behavior (facial orientation), as well as a non-targeted skill, joint attention. Findings are discussed in relation to the challenges of intervention and considerations for future research.

An Empirical Investigation of Matrix Sampling Involving Multiple Item Samples in a Two-Factor Analysis of Variance Design

Date: December 1971
Creator: Newell, James Archie
Description: The primary purposes of this study were: (1) to study empirically differences that might occur among item-samples and (2) to compare empirically the effect of test item samples on matrix sampling estimates of the mean and variance of a population of test scores, and (3) to study empirically an analysis of variance design through multiple matrix sampling.

A Study of Level of Aspiration and its Relationship to Other Personality Variables

Date: August 1964

Electron Transport in Bismuth at Liquid Helium Tempratures

Electron Transport in Bismuth at Liquid Helium Tempratures

Date: May 1964
Creator: Newell, James M.
Description: To obtain information on the band structure of bismuth, galvanomagnetic potentials were measured in a single crystal at liquid-helium and liquid-nitrogen temperatures. These measurements were analyzed for information on the different carriers, particularly for the existence of a high-mobility band of holes.

Interim Evaluation of the UNT/Dallas Public Schools Leadership Development Program: A Working Model

Interim Evaluation of the UNT/Dallas Public Schools Leadership Development Program: A Working Model

Date: May 2004
Creator: Newman, Carol A.
Description: The purpose of this study was to determine if, after one year of operation, the UNT/Dallas Public Schools Leadership Development Program was progressing in accordance with the goals set out for the program. Questionnaires administered to 26 interns and 10 mentor principals and follow-up focus group interview sessions provided answers to the study's five research questions that explored the following: selection process; how interns' involvement in campus-based decision-making had changed; how mentor principals' perceptions toward interns had changed; and how administrative interns' perceptions of themselves and educational administration had changed. Findings from this study revealed the selection process provided the Dallas Public Schools an opportunity to select teacher-leaders from the district and to include a representative number of minority and women candidates for participation in the program. An area of weakness was seven interns with low GRE scores were admitted through an appeals process at the university. Another weakness revealed the majority of interns had been assigned more duties and responsibilities at the schools, but only 4 of 26 interns were being allowed to participate in any campus-based decision-making processes that could have an impact on school improvements. The study found the role of the mentor principal to be the ...
