Establishing StrengthsFinder Norms for Veterinary Medical Students
Original Research
The Clifton StrengthsFinder 2.0 is an online assessment administered by the Gallup organization. The assessment is intended to help individuals identify their greatest talents, and once identified, use that information to further develop one’s predominant strengths. Colleges and universities routinely administer the StrengthsFinder to students, but to date there is sparse literature presenting any results. Interestingly, academic disciplinary differences has been identified as the single most differentiating factor regarding members of an academic community. This is due to the strong influence of disciplinary norms, cultures and values that both attract individuals to a community and sustain members once a part of the community. Thus, the use of a standardized assessment with well-evidenced psychometric properties could be particularly useful for making comparisons about students’ attributes across these communities. This study sought to create a new line of research inquiry by exploring StrengthsFinder results and establishing an initial set of norms for students in the field of veterinary medicine. Substantive results found veterinary students’ most predominant strengths were Achiever and Learner, followed by Restorative, Input, Relator, Harmony and Responsibility. The five least common Signature Themes were Self-Assurance, Connectedness, Activator, Command, and Maximizer. Results from this study may be used to compare and contrast students’ predominant strengths and talents in other programs, particularly those in the medical and health professions.

Linear Congruence ax ≡ b (mod n) Solver
Original Research
Although there are existing methods for solving linear congruence ax ≡ b (mod n), finding solutions still remain difficult especially when the modulus n is large. Thus, this paper aimed to develop a linear congruence solver that will provide step by step solutions even for large modulus n. The linear congruence solver was based on alternative numerical method devised by the researcher and was developed using Microsoft Visual Studio C# programming language. The system was tested using ISO 9126 standard questionnaire for software quality characteristics such as functionality, reliability, and usability. The result of the evaluation shows that the developed linear congruence solver is highly functional, highly reliable and highly usable. The use of linear congruence solver as an instructional aid for instructors and students is highly recommended.

Digital Innovation in Education: Occupational Stress and Attitude toward Change among Schoolteachers
Original Research
The introduction of ICT into the school context is driving change in the education system, and teachers, whether willingly or otherwise, are among the main actors in this process. The study of organizational change and innovation suggests a number of variables whose impact must be analysed if we are to understand how the outcomes of digital innovation in schools may be optimized. In this paper, we evaluate the experience of a large sample of teachers (420 completed questionnaires) who had been involved in a digital innovation programme for schools. More specifically, we measured the impact of personal and contextual variables on the participants’ attitude to digital change, identifying a pattern of interaction. While some variables, such as age and perceived ICT expertise, influenced both positive and negative attitudes to change, others had a more specific impact: For example, commitment to the organization mainly encouraged positive attitudes towards the digital innovation project, while negative attitudes to digital change were also associated with negative self-perceived work/life balance.

Translating Numbers into Feedback: Providing Students with Automatically Generated Feedback
Original Research
Universities nowadays are confronted with the challenge of offering students sufficient formative feedback about their learning progress. Undergraduates in particular struggle in this almost impersonal learning situation, in contrast to their experience at school. Web-based trainings often do not allow a comparable formative feedback from a teacher, as current Learning Management Systems only offer basal feedback mechanisms. The Learning Management System Analyzation Kit and the Easy Snippet Feedback Edit are software tools that have been developed to overcome this shortcoming. The intuitive design of the software allows teachers to develop small feedback generating programs, which use the educational data of EDM solutions, raw data of the LMS, or just teachers’ individual records to compose individual formative feedback messages for all students. Initial evaluations show that students appreciate this new type of feedback, and that even inexperienced users can easily operate the software.
