A case study of the adoption of a technology-based innovation in an urban school district: An e-portfolio initiative.
The study also provides several recommendations for further research. Recommendations include the expansion of several demographic and/or contextual data points in an effort to provide rich narrative of the environment ...
Examining possible interaction effects between self-control theory and general strain theory.
Abstract not available.
An examination of the effect of teacher read-aloud on adolescent attitudes and learning in science.
A repeated measures analysis suggested both teacher read-aloud and silent reading were appropriate for student learning but results do not support either method as superior over the other. Multiple regression analyses were ...
Data Mining Applications in Reservoir Modeling
Data science has gained great attentions in many fields over the last decade, in this thesis, I further explored the use of data science technique in oil industry and developed three data mining applications that could be ...
Rethinking professional development concerning comprehension strategy instruction.
The focus of this mixed methods study was to determine if one form of professional development was more effective than another in promoting teacher change in incorporating comprehension strategies to support students ...
Physico-chemical behaviors of shale/fluid/solute interaction in geo-environmental and geo-engineering applications.
This dissertation examines the rich and complex physical-mechanical behaviors exhibited by shales when exposed to differing solutions over time, temperature, chemical, and stress conditions. Using several unique experimental ...
Theoretical and experimental studies of power-law fluid flow in coiled tubing.

An investigation of the properties of indium antimonide/aluminum(x) indium(1-x) antimonide quantum wells.
This work investigates InSb/AlxIn1- xSb quantum wells through the use of Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) Spectroscopy. In addition to briefly examining excitonic transitions in undoped square wells, this work covers a ...
An examination of international crises: The effect of decision maker stress on crisis management, attributes, and outcomes in non-protracted conflict and protracted conflict crises.
In the field of foreign policy analysis, there is a long history of research examining factors that impact decision making in conflicts, wars, and crises. The following research project is an attempt to add to this body ...
Magneto-optical properties of indium antimide based quantum wells.
We observe electron spin resonance using FIR laser spectroscopy in symmetric and asymmetric InSb quantum wells over a wide range of magnetic field and the Landau level index. The behavior of the asymmetric wells at low ...
