Sallee, Margaret W.; Flood, Julee T. – Theory Into Practice, 2012
Too often, researchers get a bad name for engaging in inquiry that is inaccessible to the practitioner and policy communities who could most benefit from it.

Buchanan, John – Australian Universities' Review, 2011
The pursuit of enhancing quality in tertiary education and educators is noble.

This paper questions the validity and reliability of such…

Han, Hsiao-Cheng – ProQuest LLC, 2010
Humans rely heavily on their sense of vision and look at images in response to their need for information.

As today's technology brings images to wider audiences with more diverse…

Volkwein, J. Fredericks – New Directions for Institutional Research, 2010
Assessment research is at its best when it packages research results and data so that they can be digested by multiple audiences. Too many assessment researchers spend all their efforts planning and executing the research project with little attention to closing the loop at the end. If assessment findings are not communicated effectively, the…

Fetaji, Bekim; Fetaji, Majlinda – Electronic Journal of e-Learning, 2009
As a number of recent studies suggest applications of networked computers in education have very inconsistent results ranging from success stories to complete failures.
