    Considering their central role and unique authority in the governance of one of the most essential resources in American society���our public colleges, universities, and higher education systems���remarkably little empirical research has been conducted to contribute to understanding about board governance, in general, and the role of trustees, in particular. The purpose of this study was to conduct an examination of the construction of governing board roles���how they are constructed and negotiated, how they are interpreted by the trustees who serve on a board, and how these perspectives about roles influence trustees��� efforts to satisfy dual obligations to internal (e.g., administrators, faculty, students) and external (e.g., the public) constituencies. The research utilized a theoretical framework that drew upon Cultural-Historical Activity Theory to enhance a more traditional sensemaking approach to examine collective and individual meaning making in order to call attention to key elements within the social system of the governing board that had a part in influencing how trustees came to understand their roles. The findings provide a snapshot of the collective sense of roles and responsibilities interpreted by members of a public research university governing board. The study examines collective sense that was made, but also the ways that individual trustees lended their own unique identities to help make contributions to fulfill the board���s overall work. The findings include key details on some of the most influential inputs to trustees��� sensemaking. And, they raise important questions about the lack of understanding of the public dimensions of trusteeship roles and responsibilities, as well as the implications for the future preservation of the public good and public trust in higher education.

    We report results of experiments designed to test the predictions of the best-reply process. In a Cournot oligopoly with four firms, the best-reply process should theoretically explode if demand and cost functions are linear. We find, however, no experimental evidence of such instability. Moreover, we find no differences between a market which theoretically should not converge to Nash equilibrium and one which should converge because of inertia. We investigate the power of several learning dynamics to explain this unpredicted stability.

    Perceived self-efficacy is concerned with people’s beliefs in their capabilities to succeed in specific situations and can play a major role in how one approaches goals, tasks, and challenges. There is no all-purpose measure of perceived self-efficacy but it is necessary to derive specific scales for specific contexts. This paper presents the structure of a self-efficacy scale developed for social workers. Using the Rating Scale Model as measurement model, an objective measurement of the social workers perceived self-efficacy is produced and analyzed. The differential item functioning analysis was performed in order to determine if the test questions were fair with respect of some population characteristics.

    In a wind tunnel it is executed carefully planned regular and an experimental research of influence on heat aerodynamic characteristics of the basic geometrical parameters of rectangular ducts of plate-fin (PFT) exchange surfaces (HTS) with high value of finning φ = 14. Criteria and graphic dependences are recommended for calculation of heat transfer and aerodynamic resistance of heat exchangers. The graphic method of definition and supervision of continuous change of values of the current estimations of a rational enhancement of convective heat exchange (RECH) and necessary at designing of heat exchanger duct values PFT HTS is offered within the limits of all area of realization of process RECH. The opportunity of reduction practically up to 2.78 times of volume and weights of a core of heat exchangers with interrupted ducts instead of smooth ones is proved.
