A new method for educational assessment: measuring association via LOC index

Our objective is to develop the new technics, based on the pioneers’ work, especially the Qoyyimi and Zitikis’s (2015) extension, which can have a good performance on measuring some kinds of relationship between students’ marks of subjects. In order to understand the relationship between students’ marks on different study subjects, many studies apply some kinds of indices, such as the Pearson correlation to measuring association between variables of interest in a variety of research areas, including education. We do some extension on this route.

Evaluation of Systemic Implementation of Collaborative and Proactive Solutions for Improving the Well-being of Students at Risk and Their Teachers

One in five youth exhibit maladaptive (i.e., externalizing, oppositional, explosive, aggressive) behaviours. These behaviours are costly in that they are linked to elevated levels of student, teacher, and familial stress. Collaborative and Proactive Solutions (CPS), developed by Dr. Ross Greene (project collaborator) at Harvard University, teaches individuals to explore cognitive, emotional, social, and learning challenges to better understand factors that underlie problem behaviours that when targeted improve child outcomes.

The Relationship between Live Chemistry Show Characteristics and Their Effect on Science Museum Visitors’ Attitude to Chemistry

Accessible, high-quality science education is central to positively shaping public opinion of science. Public perceptions and understandings of chemistry have often been associated with negative attitudes, misconceptions about the nature of chemicals, and sometimes misdirected anxieties about their effects on humans. These negative images are compounded by the fact that chemistry is under represented in science museums compared to the other major sciences.

Asset-Based Community Enterprise Development in Bolivia Year Two

This cross-sectoral research project will track the process of supporting four nascent community-based enterprises (CBEs) in indigenous communities in the Bolivian highlands, examining the complex interaction of factors that contribute to successful CBEs.

Green Codes: Alternative Means of Approval when Building Green in Non-Charter Municipalities

Given tre extraordinary natural resources used for the construction, operation and demolition of buildings and the extensive impact that buildings have on natural cycles and the environment, there is an urgent need to shift towards greener buildings. In Canada, regulation presents obstacles to building green. This project will investigate the building code variances used in the top performing green buildings constructed in non-charter municipalities.

DeepCity

DeepCity is a strategy game initially for iOS, Android and desktop that is set in a strange, fascinating near future of mega-storms and scarcity. The goal: Survive. Defend. Regenerate. DeepCity advances concepts of resilience, urban ecology, sustainable futures, and systems-thinking within urban environments for players. The DeepCity prototype research project will provide the student with an opportunity to be creatively engaged in researching and making a new game for change, benefitting from mentorship and collaboration with accomplished industry professionals and academic researchers.

Development and Assessment of Modalities for Adult Science Engagement at Science World

Scientific literacy and life-long scientific education is becoming increasingly important for everyday life in our society. One of the mediums through which the public can find accessible information on science and technology advancements is their local science centre such as Science World. Science World would like to increase their adult-oriented content by 2020 and support me in assessing which modalities are most effective at educating, engaging and entertaining adult audiences.

The Evolving Legal Services Research Project, Stage II

How can public legal education and information help Canadians get justice in our legal system? With the demand for publicly-funded or low-cost legal services far exceeding the supply, public legal education and information (PLEI) is filling an increasingly larger role in meeting the legal needs of people with modest means. Yet we know relatively little about how PLEI can help people deal with their legal problems. examines the effectiveness of PLEI in helping low- and modest-income people address their legal problems.

Bridging Two Worlds: Culturally Responsive Career Development Programs and Services to Meet the Needs of Newcomer and Refugee Children in Canada

This three-year research program investigates schools and communities in Calgary, Winnipeg, Charlottetown and St. John’s to learn about their shared and disparate approaches to career development for refugee and newcomer children. This knowledge will prepare counsellors and teachers who provide career development programs and services and it will create stronger networks between community partners, universities organizations and schools throughout Canada.
