The Achievement Of Business Education Students On High School Core Subjects, Mohd Khata Bin Jabor 2010 Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College

The Achievement Of Business Education Students On High School Core Subjects, Mohd Khata Bin Jabor

LSU Doctoral Dissertations

The importance of academic courses taken during high school has been well documented. It could determine the students’ achievement in high school, affect the students’ ability to transition to postsecondary education and expand the students’ choice of postsecondary majors and degree options (Laird, Chen, & Levesque, 2006). This study examined whether enrollment in business education is related to achievements in high school core subjects. The rationale for the study is to determine if business education contributes to the academic achievement of high school students. This study used the data from the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) High School Transcript Study ...


The Effect Of A Planned Instructional Program On The Empathy Levels Of Registered Nurses At A Metropolitan Hospital In Southern Louisiana, Deborah K. Charnley 2010 Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College

The Effect Of A Planned Instructional Program On The Empathy Levels Of Registered Nurses At A Metropolitan Hospital In Southern Louisiana, Deborah K. Charnley

LSU Doctoral Dissertations

The professional nurse’s role focuses on two distinct provisions of expert care involving the science and art of caring for patients. Nurses must attain and maintain a high level of scientific, clinical expertise. In addition, nurses must continuously seek to understand, relate to and connect with the patients with whom they work whether it is at the hospital bedside or in other arenas where healthcare services are provided. The nurse plays a critical role in supporting patients through their most vulnerable times by empathizing and understanding where they are and where they want and need to be from a ...


A Viable Entry Level Into Practice: Factors Determining Diploma Nursing Program Success, Linda M. Markey 2010 Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College

A Viable Entry Level Into Practice: Factors Determining Diploma Nursing Program Success, Linda M. Markey

LSU Doctoral Dissertations

Entry level into the practice of registered nursing has been a controversial topic in the profession of nursing since the American Nurses Association (ANA) Position Statement in 1965, which stated that entry level into practice should be at the baccalaureate degree level. The oldest and most traditional type of nursing program is the diploma nursing program. Diploma nursing programs have proven to score at or above the national mean on the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN) required by all nursing graduates to pass to obtain licensure for the practice of nursing, regardless of educational preparation. The purpose ...


Transactional Distance Theory: The Effect Of Disseminating Educational Messages To Frontline Nurses In An Acute Care Hospital Setting, Wanda G. Hughes 2010 Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College

Transactional Distance Theory: The Effect Of Disseminating Educational Messages To Frontline Nurses In An Acute Care Hospital Setting, Wanda G. Hughes

LSU Doctoral Dissertations

Registered nurses (RNs)working in acute care hospitals that provide services 24 hours a day 7 days a week with a variety of schedules are a challenge for Nurse Managers to communicate rapidly changing, important educational messages in a timely and efficient manner. These RNs can be considered dispersed, or distanced, employees from their Nurse Managers. Moore’s (1972) Theory of Transactional Distance was the theoretical framework to explore the effects of disseminating educational messages via email from Nurse Managers to frontline RNs working in an acute care hospital that provides services 24 hours a day 7 days a week ...

Academic achievement data on the GEE was obtained from the Louisiana Department of Education. The sample for the study was all 10th and 11th grade students enrolled ...


Infusing Critical Thinking Into An Employability Skills Program: The Effectiveness Of An Immersion Approach, Sophie Kennedy 2010 Edith Cowan University

Infusing Critical Thinking Into An Employability Skills Program: The Effectiveness Of An Immersion Approach, Sophie Kennedy

Theses: Doctorates and Masters

The demands of the knowledge economy have placed renewed emphasis on graduate employability and the development of higher-order thinking skills. Preparing graduates for the workplace requires new instructional approaches to develop a matrix of interrelated skills. This study investigates an immersion approach to developing employability skills with emphasis on the infusion of critical thinking skills in an undergraduate business degree.

The research is situated within the pragmatic paradigm and comprises a mixed methods approach. Analyses of project instructions, student reflections and test scores are presented in an explanatory case study in three parts: the infusion of critical thinking skills in ...

The Fifth Scenario: Identity Expansion In Organizational Psychology, Jaclyn Jensen 2009 DePaul University

The Fifth Scenario: Identity Expansion In Organizational Psychology, Jaclyn Jensen

Jaclyn Jensen

Ryan and Ford (2010) have argued that organizational psychology is at a tipping point in terms of its distinctiveness from other fields. While the four scenarios they propose for organizational psychology’s future cover a wide range of potential outcomes, we propose that there is another, more expansive, more optimistic scenario for our field: our identity needs to continue to evolve, expand, and extend itself to accommodate the evolving and expanding nature of the modern organizations we study. We suggest that the way forward for organizational psychology is to continue what we have done in the past: integrate theories from ...


Psychological Contracts And Counterproductive Work Behaviors: Employee Responses To Transactional And Relational Breach, Jaclyn Jensen 2009 DePaul University

Psychological Contracts And Counterproductive Work Behaviors: Employee Responses To Transactional And Relational Breach, Jaclyn Jensen

Jaclyn Jensen

Purpose: This study extends research on counterproductive work behavior (CWB) by examining the psychological contract breaches that trigger employee CWB. Specifically, we explored the relationship between transactional and relational contract breach and five forms of CWB (abuse, production deviance, sabotage, theft, withdrawal). Further, we considered the role of situational and individual factors that mitigate CWB engagement and examined the moderating effects of organizational policies meant to deter CWB and personality (conscientiousness, agreeableness, and emotional stability).

Design/methodology/approach: Three hundred fifty-seven employees responded to surveys of transactional and relational psychological contract breach, CWB, knowledge of organizational policies, and personality. Relationships ...

Does Ethical Leadership Make A Difference? Exploring Leader And Follower Consequences Of Ethical Leader Behavior., Robert Rubin, Erich Dierdorff, Michael Brown 2009 DePaul University

Does Ethical Leadership Make A Difference? Exploring Leader And Follower Consequences Of Ethical Leader Behavior., Robert Rubin, Erich Dierdorff, Michael Brown

Erich C. Dierdorff

Despite sustained attention to ethical leadership in organizations, scholarship remains largely descriptive. This study employs an empirical approach to examine the consequences of ethical leadership on leader promotability. From a sample of ninety-six managers from two independent organizations, we found that ethical leaders were increasingly likely to be rated by their superior as exhibiting potential to reach senior leadership positions. However, leaders who displayed increased ethical leadership were no more likely to be viewed as promotable in the near-term compared to those who displayed less ethical leadership. Our findings also show ethical culture and pressure to achieve results are important ...


Revisiting Faultline Conceptualization: Measuring Faultline Strength And Distance, Elaine Zanutto, Katerina Bezrukova, Karen Jehn 2009 Santa Clara University

Revisiting Faultline Conceptualization: Measuring Faultline Strength And Distance, Elaine Zanutto, Katerina Bezrukova, Karen Jehn

Karen A. Jehn

The purpose of this research is to develop a conceptually and methodologically sound measure of group faultlines (demographic alignment of members along multiple attributes within a group). This measure takes into account the concept of faultline strength (the extent of a demographic alignment across members within a group) and, thus far neglected in past work, the concept of faultline distance. This faultline distance measure reflects how far apart the emerging subgroups are on demographic characteristics. This new, more elaborate conceptualization of faultlines is validated by presenting a number of hypothetical examples that demonstrate the distinct properties of faultline measures. We ...

Frame-Of-Reference Training Effectiveness: Effects Of Goal Orientation And Self-Efficacy On Affective, Cognitive, Skill-Based, And Transfer Outcomes., Erich Dierdorff, Eric Surface, Kenneth Brown 2009 DePaul University

Frame-Of-Reference Training Effectiveness: Effects Of Goal Orientation And Self-Efficacy On Affective, Cognitive, Skill-Based, And Transfer Outcomes., Erich Dierdorff, Eric Surface, Kenneth Brown

Erich C. Dierdorff

Empirical evidence supporting frame-of-reference (FOR) training as an effective intervention for calibrating raters is convincing. Yet very little is known about who does better or worse in FOR training. We conducted a field study of how motivational factors influence affective, cognitive, and behavioral learning outcomes, as well as near transfer indexed by achieving professional certification. Relying on goal orientation theory, we hypothesized effects for 3 goal orientations: learning, prove performance, and avoid performance. Results were generally supportive across learning outcomes and transfer. Findings further supported a hypothesized interaction between learning self-efficacy and avoid performance goal orientation, such that higher levels ...

Evaluating Pay-For-Performance Systems: Critical Issues For Implementation, Myron Glassman, Aaron Glassman, Paul Champagne, Mike Zugelder

Aaron Glassman

Most organizations use a merit pay or pay-for-performance system (PFP) to improve employee performance. Despite its popularity, a PFP system can be difficult to implement. Success depends on several issues. These include adequate funding, suitable job characteristics, and appropriate performance feedback. Moreover, even under the best circumstances, PFP systems may cause unintended consequences such as dysfunctional behavior, unethical conduct and even employment discrimination. Still, when the critical issues for proper implementation are appropriately addressed, a PFP system is and should continue to be a successful management tool to enhance employee performance in the workplace.

Work Design In Situ: Understanding The Role Of Occupational And Organizational Context., Frederick Morgeson, Erich Dierdorff, Jillian Hmurovic 2009 Michigan State University

Work Design In Situ: Understanding The Role Of Occupational And Organizational Context., Frederick Morgeson, Erich Dierdorff, Jillian Hmurovic

Erich C. Dierdorff

Despite nearly 100 years of scientific study, comparatively little attention has been given to articulating how the broader occupational and organizational context might impact work design. We seek to address this gap by discussing how aspects of the occupational and organizational context can constrain or enable the emergence of different work design features as well as influence the relationships between work design features and various outcomes.We highlight how different forms of context might impact work design and suggest that this is an important and potentially fruitful area for future work design research and theory.
