Carter-Veale, Wendy Y.; Holder, Michelle Beadle; Joseph, Lenisa N. – Innovative Higher Education, 2019
Doctoral student attrition is often referred to as a silent epidemic whereby students tacitly withdraw without ever being given an exit interview or follow-up. While most studies focus on the departing students, few studies focus on the institution's implicit and explicit policies and practices that encourage silence. Drawing upon the "Exit,…

Rämö, Johanna; Reinholz, Daniel; Häsä, Jokke; Lahdenperä, Juulia – Innovative Higher Education, 2019
In this article we describe a long-term departmental change effort in one mathematics department. The change began with one instructor adopting the Extreme Apprenticeship instructional model. This modest shift served as the catalyst for a series of subsequent, systemic improvements. We believe that this innovation and the resultant change…

Hermanowicz, Joseph C.; Woodring, David W. – Innovative Higher Education, 2019
Scholars have argued that grade inflation is pervasive throughout colleges and universities and that it is presently at an all-time high. Inflation is, however, a temporal concept: it is theoretically impossible for grades to keep increasing on a fixed scale. In this article we examine a related, though empirically distinct, phenomenon: the…
