The predictive utility of individual differences within academic settings has been a longstanding question addressed in past literature. The majority of the research focused on the relationship between the Big Five trait domains and academic achievement i.e., academic satisfaction and course change intention (O’Connor, & Paunonen, 2007). Studies consistently found that personality, specifically conscientiousness predicted academic performance (Noftle, & Robins, 2007). In contrast, little research had been done to specifically explore the relationship between academic performance and fit measurements. Interest major (I-M), need-supply (NS) and demands-ability (D-A) fit being the three main constructs applied to an academic setting, have each been found by Li, Yao, Chen, and Wang (2013) to demonstrate relationships with academic achievement. Taking into account that personality has demonstrated significant relationships with academic outcomes and that fit has also been associated to particular academic outcomes, it would be reasonable to question how the two variables may impact on academic achievement when taking the other into consideration.
Personality.
Barrik and Mounts’ (1991) study is a consistent reference point in current personality based literature. Using a sample of 162 studies, they conducted a meta-analysis on the Big Five Factors and job performance, generating an extensive amount of interest and acting as the foundations for future research (O’Connor, & Paunonen, 2007). Since then, numerous studies have applied the Big Five to academic performance, thus resulting in conclusive results and empirical saturation in regards to conscientiousness.
In contrast, the remaining four of the Big Five factors generated mixed results in predicting academic performance. Agreeableness and Openness to Experience are rarely discussed as predictive…...

Jonathan Swift's a Modest Propsal

...“A Modest Proposal,” is a satirical essay written and published by Jonathan Swift in 1729. Swift was a Protestant, but he was also a native of Ireland, having been born in Dublin of English parents, and was one of the most satirical writers of his time. Swift believed that the population of Catholic children in Ireland was creating an economic problem as well as being a burden on their parents and country. So Swift came up with a proposal that would satirize the English landlords with outrageous humor. He propose, jokingly, that Irish infants be sold as food at age one, when they are plump and healthy, to give the Irish a new source of income and the English a new food product to bolster their economy and eliminate a social problem. He says his proposal, if adopted, would also result in a reduction in the number of Catholics in Ireland. He also believed England was exploiting Ireland. Many Irishmen worked farms owned by Englishmen who charged high rents so high that the Irish were frequently unable to pay them. Consequently, many Irish farming families lived on the edge of starvation. Here, he is satirizing the rivalry and prejudice characterizing Catholic-Protestant relations in Britain. Swift also satirizes the Irish themselves in his essay, for too many of them had accepted abuse stoically rather than taking action on their own behalf. . He believes that English overlords are shamelessly exploiting the impoverished people of Ireland. He believed in order to fix...

Information Systems Propsal

...Information System Proposal BIS/220 November , 2013 INTRODUCTION There are quite a few organizational information systems available for business to assist them in running properly. Five systems that would work well for our nostalgic record store: * Transaction Processing System * Office automation system * Supply Chain management system * Management information system * Electronic commerce system. PROPOSAL FOR EACH ORGINIZATIONAL INFORMATION SYSTEM The first system that would benefit our company is Transaction Processing System (TPS). This will help us collect, monitor, store and process data from business transactions. When we have a transaction with multiple items we will be able to use the data collected from the TPS to determine what items sell best together. We can promote these items together to gain more sales. The drawback to this system is not every customer is going to have the same interests and our received information will require more research. It will also not account for any loss, internally or externally. Office automation systems (OASs) will be used so that our business can we can properly support our staff. If we implement a project planning system like Teamweek, we can set the daily tasks or check lists of the store employee, and monitor their progress. This will also help us to keep track of employee productivity, and determine what tasks each employee should have accordingly. This system will only work its best if......

Abortion Propsal

...A current issue of controversy is abortion, which has polarized the national community and is a current hot topic in the Presidential debates. Two groups of abortion include the people who are pro-life who believe that there is a right to life before conception. This is based on moral and ethical issues as well as religious implications. The opposing group believes that life does not begin until after the baby is born and that the family has the right to choose. A feminist would describe the roots of this problem as based in the woman’s reproductive right to choose. A woman should have the right to their body and their health and that they should the freedom to choose their own life (Schoen, 2000). This is also evident in rape and incest cases where many feel that abortion needs to be an option after an involuntary event where a woman did not have the right to her own body. Political and ethical theories that are evident in this controversy include deontological and consequentialism (Canario, 2011). Those who are pro-abortion may follow consequentialism because they are concerned about the consequences of the abortion (or not having an abortion) which may mean health issues for the mother, sustaining a family that a parent can clearly not take care or long term issues of care for the child. Those who are anti-abortion can be seen as being deontological because they believe that the mother has a moral duty to society and to their religion or other beliefs that the......

Toyota Recall Research Propsal

...Research Question: Have the recent recalls effected Toyotas brand image? Product Description: We, as a group, chose this topic because Toyotas main slogan consists of ‘The Best Built Cars in The World’ despite having numerous recalls over the past number of years. This really appealed to us and we wanted to see how the recalls have effected potential customers of Toyota cars in Ireland. Toyota spent 33 days as the no.1 news story worldwide (24/7 wall st). We hope to learn if this negative news coverage has effected Toyotas market share in Ireland, along with Ireland’s overall view of Toyota as a brand. With this, we want to research new cars sales in Ireland over the past number of years and in particular around the months of February and March 2009 when the recalls for Toyotas reached their peak (Cole). With the large number of recalls, we also want to investigate if Toyota have changed their production practices and quality checks to prevent these large scale recalls from happening once again. Traditionally, this company had an essence of quality about its brand (Toyota-global.com) in Ireland and we want to see what Toyota Ireland is currently doing to reassure their target market that the recalls were a mere blip in the company’s overall history and Toyota are still reliable as they ever were. Along with new car sales, we also want to research the second-hand car market in Ireland and see what is Toyota’s market place is there. We felt this is important because a......

...Business Proposal Brenda McDonald BUS 340 Instructor: Ellie Parvin February 9, 2015 Business Proposal EXECUTIVE SUMMARY This business proposal will provide a solution to the current salary restraints for the Director of Sales and Marketing within the organization in a way that will help to increase sales revenue potentials for the property, while providing salary incentives for the director. The Economical Impact on the Properties The economical impact of Palmer-Gosnell Management, Inc.’s hotel background has not been at the expected levels since 2008. With the decline in travel from the leisure market (families and vacation type travel), it is important that Palmer-Gosnell Management retain a dedicated sales effort in order to remain competitive in the hotel market. The things to consider are the increasing costs to operate the hotel, the decreasing marketing budget allowances, and the slow travel markets that are over saturated with hotel rooms. Having a dedicated sales director who is responsible for driving revenues in order for the property to continue to operate and provide a return-on-investment to the stockholders is very important to the company. Provide revenue gains by changing the current salary structure. The sales director that is responsible would need some motivation to keep the hotel in good standings. Let’s start with; the amount of work load that is expected of the sales manager and the type of goals that must be achieved should be......

Training Outline Propsal

...Training Outline Proposal Gender Discrimination occurs when an employee is treated differently because that individual is a woman or a man. Transgender Discrimination is known as gender identity discrimination and is cover under Title VII. Gender Discrimination Applicable Laws ?  Example of Gender Discrimination In the case where the senior partner asked the hiring manger overtly not to hire pregnant ladies or women under a certain age is illegal. Pregnancy Discrimination Act (PDA) forbids discrimination based on any aspect of employment (U.S Equal employment Opportunity Commission, YYYY). It is important for the hiring manager to inform the senior partner that the recruitment and hiring practices of applicants are subject to government regulation such as requiring employers to recruit from a diverse applicant pool and advertise in way to encourage diverse pool of applicants to apply for vacant positions (Bennett-Alexander & Hartman, 2007). Example of Racism Discrimination In the case of Local 28, Sheet Metal Workers v. EEOC 478 U.S., blacks were not allowed to participate in a 4-year apprenticeship training program. This program was designed to teach sheet metal skills, and once completed the apprentices become journeymen for Local 28 members.

...Technology Trend Proposal II: Telemedicine Tiffany Campbell HCS/483 May 23, 2016 Technology Trend Proposal II: Telemedicine Across the globe, the methodology of considerable scale technology in the health care field has begun. As fast as satellite communication can transmit, the terms telehealth and telemedicine are being distributed across the world. The bandwidth of telemedicine has been hard pressed in the connecting of people as we treat illness and promote health care. Telemedicine in itself is innovative as it continues to grow there are precautions and risks that will arise. In this paper, the privacy risks of telemedicine, security safeguards that could be put into place to reduce or eliminate those risk, along with strategies for evaluating the effectiveness of telemedicine. Privacy Risks and Security Safeguards As progression in novelty began to be more prominent, the matter in which health care operates begin to change. Health information exchanges (HIEs) allow a patient’s information to effortlessly be shared. With providers being allowed to bring their own devices, health care workers are permitted to get, record or offer information from anyplace at any time.

... A business plan for the creation of training services to health care professionals on how to care for patients with Alzheimer disease Name: Institution: Introduction Alzheimer is considered as a kind of illness that leads to some problems with the memory. Thus, the thinking characters often do grow slowly and become dangerous over time. It is also seen that the signs and symptoms do frequently increase slowly and become bad over time. Studies conducted by the Alzheimer Association showed that the disease is the most widespread form of dementia. A common term used in describing the memory loss as well as other intellectual potentials that are grim enough to meddle with one’s daily life. Thus, it is also evident that Alzheimer disease accounts for 65 to 85 percent of the dementia illnesses (Chui, 1996). Consequently, this business proposal will highlight on the mission statement along with the objective of my business plan concerning the creation of the training services to health care professionals on how to care for patients with Alzheimer disease. Mission statement Our mission will be to provide education as well as training for the health care professionals with the necessary skills on how to take care of patients with Alzheimer disease.

Proposal

...extensive process of proposing, presenting, and discussing topics for Dons Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP), Primary Evidence has been selected as our focus. Primary evidence is a central tenet of Emory’s intellectual life. It allows us to test hypotheses, provides the basis for data analyses, centers humanistic inquiry, and is the substance of the creative process. In October 2011, a committee under the leadership of Mellisa Anders (Professor of Art History) and Melanie Donson (Professor of Physics) put out a call for proposals. An enthusiastic response from the wider Emory community, including faculty, students, staff, and alumni resulted in the selection of four final themes. In February 2012, the four proposals were posted on the Propsal website. In late February and early March the authors of these proposals made public presentations at town hall meetings, providing additional information and seeking comments and reactions from the Enchatia community. Feedback was also received through electronic outreach to relevant constituents. Revised proposals were reviewed in April 2012 by the QEP Selection Committee, resulting in the recommendation of Primary Evidence as Emory’s QEP. The SAD leadership team, under the guidance of President Andrews, accepted this recommendation. The quality of the proposals was outstanding and much energy and imagination was invested in their development. A closer review shows many overlapping themes and objectives for the ongoing......
