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.
