Professor Gary Keller
LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – Gary Keller, Ph.D., professor of business, is the guest presenter for the next colloquium at EOU Thursday, Nov. 13.
The discussion of “A Quantitative Study of a Faculty Member’s Role In Changing Writing Outcomes of Undergraduate Capstone Papers” begins at 4 p.m. in Ackerman Hall, Room 210. A reception will follow.
Keller maintains there is a paucity of quantitative evidence to ascertain if a faculty member directly influences improvements in student writing skills. He will share a supplemental and easy-to-use pre/post evaluation of student writing skills that was developed and tested with 76 students (face-to-face and online students) enrolled in a Senior Project Business Capstone course at a rural regional university located in the U.S. spanning two academic years (2013 to 2014).
Results are presented from use of the Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level score as a pre/post instrument to evaluate the writing levels of students after they submitted their first assignment and the final submission of the Senior Project Business Capstone paper.
