Duncan, John R.; Zeng, Yong – National Center for Engineering and Technology Education, 2005
Limited information is available regarding the factors that promote persistence by women in engineering programs. Stated simply, the problem is that the number of women engineers continues to fall short in comparison to the gender ratio of women to men in the population in the U.S. (BEST, 2002) and worldwide (Hersh, 2000). More women engineers are…

A role for rostral prefrontal cortex (BA10) has been proposed in multitasking, in particular, the selection and maintenance of higher order internal goals while other sub-goals are being performed. BA10 has also been implicated in the ability to infer someone else's feelings and thoughts, often referred to as theory of mind. While most of the data…

Arnell, Karen M.; Duncan, John – Cognitive Psychology, 2002
There is often strong interference if a second target stimulus (T2) is presented before processing of a prior target stimulus (T1) is complete. In the "Psychological Refractory Period" (PRP) paradigm, responses are speeded and interference manifests as increased response time for T2. In the "Attentional Blink" (AB) paradigm, stimuli are masked and…

Duncan, John; Wallace, Mary K. – Delta Pi Epsilon Journal, 2002
Problems in the assessment of online courses relate to decisions about what types of delivery systems are most effective and relevant to which learning styles. Other issues include the commodification of distance education and the fact that most research investigates a specific course in general terms. (Contains 28 references.) (SK)

Duncan, John; Parr, Alice; Woolgar, Alexandra; Thompson, Russell; Bright, Peter; Cox, Sally; Bishop, Sonia; Nimmo-Smith, Ian – Journal of Experimental Psychology: General, 2008
In goal neglect, a person ignores some task requirement though being able to describe it. Goal neglect is closely related to general intelligence or C. Spearman's (1904) "g" (J. Duncan, H. Emslie, P. Williams, R. Johnson, & C. Freer, 1996). The authors tested the role of task complexity in neglect and the hypothesis that different task components…

Benson, Angela D.; Johnson, Scott D.; Taylor, Gail D.; Treat, Tod; Shinkareva, Olga N.; Duncan, John – Community College Journal of Research and Practice, 2005
Community colleges are actively involved in distance-learning programs in Career and Technical Education (CTE). Over 76% of community colleges offer some form of distance learning in CTE. Over the years, only a few isolated studies have compared the effectiveness of distance CTE courses to traditional face-to-face courses. Typically, the findings…
