Responsibility scale - 10 Proquest Educational Journals

Retrieved from


This article from a well-known educational journal titled Proquest

acceptable level of internal consistency and positive correlation to the

Consciousness Scale of Neuroticism, Extraversion, and Openness Personality

Inventory-Revised (NEO PI-R), academic performance, self-esteem, and

retention. This source is considered to be reliable and relevant because the author

had quoted the term personal responsibility from different authors which basically
does not show any bias towards the subject matter.

...Annotated Bibliography Extejt, Marian M. "Teaching Students To Correspond Effectively Electronically." Business Communication Quarterly 61.2 (1998): 57-67. Communication & Mass Media Complete. Web. 18 Oct. 2012. Abstract In their business careers, today's students will probably compose and send far more e-mail messages than memos or letters. Students should understand that e-mail messages have a unique place in the communications continuum and, therefore, their own rules. While the format of an e-mail message may resemble that of a memo, each element presents special requirements in an electronic medium. The interactivity of e-mail offers both opportunities and constraints to writers and readers. A special etiquette also applies to e-mail, especially the need to avoid flaming and spamming and to check e-mail often. While writers often think their office e-mail is private, employers who own the systems have been upheld legally in their right to monitor e-mail for business reasons, and thus students should pay careful attention to the content and tone of their messages. Assigning e-mail projects in class helps students prepare for this important communications medium, work effectively in teams, and correspond with corporations as part of their classroom research. Annotation Marian M. Extejt, Professor at John Carroll University, creates a framework for the medium of email, in which she explores the basic aspects that are required to effectively use email.

...Annotated Bibliography In Chapter 7 of the book titled Understanding Motivation and Emotion, author Johmarshall Reeve discusses and explains the intellectual developments that each individual goes through as they seek emotionally-laden incentives. Certain social events carry values (either negative or positive) for an individual, and the way they respond to these events throughout their life create a pattern of emotions which becomes a main source of their social needs. For example, an academic test may “activate emotional fear and behavioral avoidance” in one individual, yet activate “emotional hope” (2009) in another individual. Over time, these patterns we develop may determine and shape or future goals (7.2). Furthermore, our social needs remain “dormant” until we encounter a situation that brings these needs to our attention. According to the content listed under 7.2, people begin to learn the situations that promote positive emotional incentives and gravitate towards them, all while avoiding situations that promote negative emotional incentives. Thus, a person who enjoys and seeks achievement might enter business for the sole purpose of becoming an entrepreneur, while a person who strives for power, might enter business so that he or she can run for political office one day (Reeve, 2009, 7.2). Understanding Motivation and Social Needs, by Johnmarshall Reeve, is a highly reliable source due to the fact that is based on the studies of an eclectic...

...Annotated Bibliography: What the Literature Says About Juvenile Sex Offenders The following articles, factsheets, and studies have been compiled to assist attorneys and individuals working on behalf of youth charged with sexual offending. The information contained in these resources aim to help others realize the fundamental differences between adult sex offenders and juvenile sex offenders, which include positive responses of juveniles to treatment, low recidivism rates of juveniles and negative impact of registries on youth development. It is our hope that this information will be used to improve legal outcomes for juvenile sex offenders, and uphold the purpose of the juvenile justice system as a rehabilitative, not punitive, system.

Redefining Student Success: Applying Different Multinomial Regression Techniques for the Study of Student Graduation Across Institutions of Higher Education. Research in Higher Education 51(2),154-174. doi: 10.1007/s11162-009-9149-4. Associates with Research in Higher Education conducted a study in collaboration with the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC) to test a hypothesis that higher education degree attainment was based on many factors beyond the institution where the program originated, the primary category assessed by the Student Right to Know Act (SRK). Conducting their study over a six-year period, with the help of the NSC database and its 93 million student records, the researchers found that demographics, pervious academic ability, social integration, financial contribution, and gender all strongly affected student persistence. The singular focus of assessing degree attainment based solely on the originating institution was thusly challenged. The data supported a similar finding by the Higher Education Research Institute whose 2005 study indicated race, gender and type of learning institution were all contributing factors for degree attainment (Astin & Oseguera, 2005). Evaluating collective data, it appears multiple factors must be assessed to determine graduation attainment for students in higher learning institutes...

... Student: Tutor: Course: Date: The Lottery: Annotated Bibliography Nebeker, Helen. The Lottery: Symbolic Tour de Force", in American Literature, Vol. 46, No. 1, March, 1974, pp. 100-07. Print. Nebeker uses this piece of literary work to argue that each and every name used in “The Lottery” has a special or distinct significance (3). The author hints at some of the larger meanings, especially through name symbolism. At the end of the second paragraph, for instance, Nebeker asserts that Jackson had indicated and presented the season. It was time of ancient sacrifice and excess, with stones representing the most ancient sacrificial weapons (2). Apart from that, the name Martin signifies monkey or ape. The above is juxtaposed intentionally with Dickie Delacroix and Harry Jones with an aim of urging the people to be aware of the Ape residing within them. Indeed, “Delacroix has been vulgarized in the story to “Dellacroy,” who becomes the first person to pick a large stone something that encourages others to stone Mrs. Hutchinson. The above is a clear indication of forces against change in the society. The presence of Old Man Martin further symbolizes conservatives whose role is to undermine any attempt to discard old traditions (3). In a nutshell, this is a reliable source for my research since Nebeker has made every possible attempt to identify various facts about the historical context of the short story. Jackson, Shirley.

Journal Of Agromedicine, 18(3), 187-197. doi:10.1080/1059924X.2013.796901 “The global dairy industry is composed of a multitude of countries with unique production practices and consumer markets. The global average number of cows per farm is about 1–2 cows; however, as a farm business model transitions from sustenance to market production, the average herd size, and subsequent labor force increases. Dairy production is unique as an agricultural commodity because milk is produced daily, for 365 days per year. With the introduction of new technology such as the milking parlor, the global industry trend is one of increasing farm sizes. The farm sizes are the largest in the United States; however, the European Union produces the most milk compared with other global producers. Dairy production is essential for economic development and sustainable communities in rural areas. However, the required capital investment and availability of local markets and labor are continued challenges.
