1. Sorge, Brandon H. A multilevel analysis of project lead the way implementation in Indiana.

Degree: PhD, Technology, 2014, Purdue University

Using data from the 2010 Indiana public high school graduating class (N=55612), this project employed a multi-level analysis to determine, what if any differences occurred in majoring in STEM and freshman to sophomore year persistence, between students attending a school that offers Project Lead the Way and students that don't, while controlling for being a PLTW student. Additionally, this project explored the mitigating institutional factors that influenced a student majoring in STEM or persisting from their freshman to sophomore year in post-secondary education and if and how these factors varied depending upon if a student took PLTW courses, attended a PLTW school but did not take any PLTW courses, or attended a school that did not offer PLTW. Advisors/Committee Members: Melissa J. Dark, Melissa J. Dark, Charles R. Staver, Jenny L. Daugherty.

2. Debs, Luciana de Cresce El. A mixed methods study on choice of media influence on construction industry communication.

Degree: PhD, Technology, 2016, Purdue University

This study focuses on the use of different communication media for solving problems in the construction industry. The focus of this research is on design-problems containing spatial information and are informally reported between site supervision and design professionals. Due to the fragmented nature of the construction industry, miscommunication is a well-known and common problem. Yet, this fragmented nature is necessary in order to build a complex product involving many different types of professionals. To better understand the issue, this study uses previous literature, such as those published on media richness theory, problem-solving strategy, and construction specific communications, in a three-phased sequential mixed-methods approach. The phases included an online survey with industry professionals (phase 1), interviews with industry professionals (phase 2), and a quasi-experiment (phase 3). Quantitative and qualitative data were analyzed depending on the phase. Results indicate that construction industry communication relies strongly on face-to-face interaction, and telephone and email communications. The need for a `paper trail' is an important factor driving communication patterns. Finally, phase 3 suggested that communication media that allow for immediate feedback and visual cues are more helpful in solving design-problems containing spatial information. Based on these results, guidelines for effective use of different types of media in the construction industry were then developed as a final product of this study. These guidelines seek to improve awareness about the importance of effective communication in the construction industry. Advisors/Committee Members: Mark Shaurette, Mark Shaurette, Jenny L. Daugherty, Bryan Hubbard, Todd R. Kelley.

3. Ruiz Villacres, Hugo Danilo. Research, Science and Technology Parks: A Global Comparison of Best Practices.

Degree: PhD, Technology, 2015, Purdue University

The purpose of this study was to determine if significant differences exist in the evaluation of effectiveness and efficiency between North American, European, and Asian research parks (RPs). Park directors and staff responded to 25 questions from the Survey for Research, Science and Technology Parks. Effectiveness was measured by director's perception of the RP's contribution to economic growth and job creation. Efficiency was evaluated by the interactions between local universities and research parks, assessment of the ecosystem's basic characteristics, and the culture of innovation in the ecosystem. A stratified sampling procedure from a population of 793 parks was used; analysis of variance (ANOVA) and multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA) were used to test for significance. 130 RPs from three continents participated in this study. No significant differences were found in the evaluation of RPs' directors on effectiveness and efficiency of RPs. Advisors/Committee Members: Nathan W Hartman, James L Mohler, Richard M French, Jenny L Daugherty.
