The Collegiate Learning Assessment (CLA) is a measure of how much students’ critical thinking improves after attending college or university. This report illustrates how institutions can set their own standards on the CLA using a method that is appropriate for the CLA’s unique characteristics. The authors examined evidence of

In writing this book we set out to modernize the teaching of bank management at
universities and collegiate schools of business. Our goal is to expand the scope of the
typical bank management course by (1) covering a broader, but still selective, variety
of Wnancial institutions, and (2) explaining the why of intermediation, as opposed to
simply describing institutions, regulations, and market phenomena. Our approach is
unapologetically analytical, and we have tried to make analysis an appealing feature
of this book....
The employer-employee Relationship: A phenomenological Study of Retention and the Information Technology Worker In University of California data, I find evidence that observable background
characteristicsparticularly those describing the composition of the school, rather than the
individuals own backgroundare strong predictors of both SAT scores and collegiate
performance, and that much of the SATs apparent predictive power derives from its
association with these background characteristics.
The confluence of two seemingly unconnected and important
aspects of collegiate culture combine to create an interesting
phenomenon: the distribution of financial aid for athletic ability
by a huge majority of America’s colleges. Soon after athletic
competitions between schools began, it became clear that the
student bodies of the schools took the contests quite seriously
and they preferred winning as opposed to losing, no matter
how much sportsmanship the athletes on the fields of competition
THE EFFECTS OF CUSTOMER LOYALITY ON PROFITABILLITY Chapter Three turns to a wholly different, but not unrelated, topic, the role of
admissions exam scores in the identification of well-prepared students in the college
admissions process. The case for using such exams is often made with validity studies,
which estimate the correlation between test scores and eventual collegiate grades, both with
and without controls for high school grade point average. I argue that there are two
fundamental problems with these studies as they are often carried out.
ORGANIZATIONL CHANGE THROUGH THE MANDATED IMOLEMENTATION OF NEW INFORMATION SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY : A MODIFIED TECHNOLOGY ACCEPTANCE MODEL A second shortcoming of the validity literature is more fundamental. In a world in
which student background characteristics are known to be correlated with academic success
(i.e. with both SAT scores and collegiate grades), it is quite difficult to interpret validity
estimates that fail to take account of these background characteristics.
The Pepperdine University chapter of Beta Gamma Sigma encourages and
honors academic achievement in the study of business and personal and
professional excellence in the practice of business. Membership in Beta Gamma
Sigma, the only business honor society recognized by AACSB International—The
Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, is the highest recognition
a business student can receive in an undergraduate or master’s business program
accredited by AACSB. Students achieving high academic excellence will be
invited to join.

An ninh (Security): Một mặt chỉ trạng thái không lo sợ hoặc tránh được nguy hiểm; Mặt khác, chỉ hành động, biện pháp đảm bảo hay đáp trả. Nói cách khác, an ninh là không tồn tại sự đe dọa và nguy hiểm (Nguồn: Websters Ninth, New Collegiate Dictionary, p. 1062)
An ninh là khái niệm chỉ trạng thái tâm lý về mức độ an toàn (a sense of security)
SAIs of the “courts of audit” type have, as one of the results of their audit mission, juridical
functions, primarily with respect to financial irregularities, as well as the audit responsibilities
found in other SAIs. These are collegiate bodies, typically incorporating judges and at times
following court procedures. They are headed by a “President” or “First president” and may have
an independent Prosecutor General who can participate to the quality control process.
The relationship between physical activity and breast cancer is less clear, but several
studies in American women suggest that risk may be lowered in those who are habitually
active. An extensive review of this subject is now available including international studies
(Kramer & Wells, 1996). Only studies utilizing American subjects are reviewed here. In 1985,
Frisch et al. assessed prevalence of breast cancer in 5,398 former collegiate women athletes
and nonathletes from 10 colleges and universities from classes spanning 56 years.
IF YOU ARE an avid basketball fan, you are certainly aware of my passion
for the game that has served me so well. I have been so lucky to have
been involved in this game, which was started over a century ago by Mr.
Naismith. Interestingly, I bet many of you did not know that Mr. Naismith
was a philosopher and a Presbyterian minister as well as a man
who was active in many ways in the great game he invented.
My journey has taken me through every level involving the roundball
game. I’ve had the golden opportunity to coach on the scholastic, collegiate,
and professional levels. Also,...
Factors encouraging educators to stay in their profession included their passion for developing young people and strong collegial relationships. However, many also feel trapped by limited job alternatives, and may embark on withdrawal options such as increased absenteeism or lower outputs. It is crucially important to deal with the sources of educator frustration, lest the result becomes deteriorating service provision and quality in South African education.
