AICER Presents Dr. Nadia Nosworthy

Andrews International Center for Educational Research (AICER) invites students, faculty and interested participants to attend a research symposium on Monday, January 26, at 5:30 p.m.

Presenter:  Dr. Nadia Nosworthy, Graduate Psychology & Counseling Assistant Professor, Andrews University

Assessment of Early Numeracy Skills
There is growing evidence to suggest math skills are just as important as reading skills when predicting a child’s academic success and overall well-being. Children’s ability to compare symbolic (e.g., Arabic numerals) and non-symbolic (e.g., dot arrays) numerical magnitudes has been found to correlate with their math achievement. Consequently my colleagues and I designed a two-minute paper-and-pencil assessment to measure kindergarten children’s ability to compare symbolic and non-symbolic numerical magnitudes and assessed the degree to which performance on this measure explains individual differences in achievement. Research results revealed that symbolic and non-symbolic number comparison accuracy scores correlated with individual differences in arithmetic achievement and participants’ scores on the paper-and-pencil test in kindergarten were a significant predictor of math performance in grade one. The findings suggest the important role of symbolic and non-symbolic processing in children’s higher-level math abilities and also highlight the potential of this tool for assessment of early foundational numerical abilities.

Face-to-face participants meet in Bell Hall 015

Andrews Web Re-Engineering Project

We are rebuilding the Andrews website from the ground up and we want your feedback. For several months now, the campus Web Committee has been discussing and prioritizing how to best implement an overall update to the Andrews website. This significant update would represent a variety of benefits to everyone involved at Andrews, and its most direct mission would be to make the web experience a more engaging one, especially for future students to help improve our overall enrollment, as well as our campus community.

The provost has asked Integrated Marketing & Communication to spearhead the Web Re-Engineering project (working closely with Information Technology Services and other offices). Work began late last semester, and we are now hosting a set of town hall meetings in early January to both 1) inform the Andrews community about some of the details and specifics of the project (priorities, timeline, scope), and 2) receive valuable feedback from you as our campus community on the direction and alternatives for our website as it is reengineered.

Please join us for one of our town hall meetings to get involved; all take place in the Whirlpool Room in Chan Shun Hall (School of Business Administration):

  • Monday, Jan. 12, 3:30–5 p.m.
  • Tuesday, Jan. 13, 6–7:30 p.m.
  • Wednesday, Jan. 21, 2–3:30 p.m.

Course Survey Extension

Dear Students and Faculty,

This month we’ve experienced several technical difficulties with our course survey system, related to a recent update.  We apologize for any confusion this has caused.  We will schedule a few more reminder emails, and will leave the surveys open until 5 p.m. on Tuesday, December 16.  We will continue to monitor the situation closely so that we can trouble shoot as needed.

Thank you for your patience.  Wishing you blessings during the exams and the upcoming break.

STUDENTS: Take Fall Course Surveys

It is once again time for students to rate their courses through course surveys.  Course surveys provide the opportunity to give important (and anonymous) feedback to instructors on the effectiveness of the course.

Most courses will be surveyed electronically through our automated system, Class Climate.  Email invitations for each course survey will be sent Thursday, November 20.  If the survey is not taken, reminders will be sent automatically every three days until December 5.  A Certificate of Completion will be generated and emailed you after each survey is submitted.  This may be saved, and used as proof of completion if the instructor offers any type of incentive.

Thank you in advance for your participation.  If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Institutional Effectiveness at ext. 3308 (assessment@andrews.edu)

Retirement Party for Dr. Emilio Garcia-Marenko

The definition of a registrar is an official in an academic institution who handles student records. As the Andrews University Registrar for 17.5 years, Dr. Emilio Garcia-Marenko has come to know the job very well, but has been much more than that. In addition to his responsibilities as Registrar, in 2003 he became the Associate VP for Academic Administration. In 2007 this position changed to the Associate Provost, and he also became the administrative figure to which students could voice their complaints. Dr. Garcia has also held the position of Interim Graduate Dean, and on two occasions was asked to cover for the VP for Enrollment Services during leadership transitions. And he has been a Professor of Family Ministry in the AU Seminary since 1997. Please join us to honor and celebrate Dr. Emilio Garcia-Marenko's many years of service to Andrews University.

Date: December 8, 2014
Time: 3:30-5:30 p.m., with a Special Program at 4:30
