Ma, Hong; Slater, Tammy – CALICO Journal, 2016
This study utilized a theory proposed by Mohan, Slater, Luo, and Jaipal (2002) regarding the Developmental Path of Cause to investigate AWE score use in classroom contexts. This "path" has the potential to support validity arguments because it suggests how causal linguistic features can be organized in hierarchical order. Utilization of…

Duffy, John; Barrington, Linda; West, Cheryl; Heredia, Manuel; Barry, Carol – Advances in Engineering Education, 2011
In the fall of 2004 a college began a program to integrate service-learning (S-L) projects into required engineering courses throughout the curriculum, so that students would be exposed to S-L in at least one course in each of eight semesters. The ultimate goal is to graduate better engineers and more engaged citizens and to improve communities,…
