However, some templates may cost more money depending on the complexity of the game. Classroom Games that Make Test Review and Memorization Fun! (n.d.).

Great with students, workers, family, etc. For example: With games like Jeopardy and Family Feud, players can pick practically any answers. The person who is running the game will have to have all of the answers in order to determine if players are correct or not. However, with a game like Who Wants to be a Millionaire, the players only have a choice between answers, A, B, C, or D. Therefore, when the player decides their answer, the person running the game clicks it, and the game will tell them whether they are right or wrong.
Transcript: Intermediate: o Enhanced Faculty Recruitment (better faculty attracts better students) o New and/or Revised University Goals & Objectives o Development of Internal Skill Sets o Decision-Making at Top and Mid-Level Management Logic Model- Outcomes Graduate Students Satisfaction at Seton Hall University Problem Statement Data Analysis 3 pages survey: first page: cover letter second page: demographic questions third page: scales with a final question (DV) measures students' satisfaction level Thank You! Five 4-point Likert-Scales that cover all five factors: student advising, career and professional development, social climate, technology and institutional resources, and the academic program Age: 24 or younger 70.9% 25 to 34 25.5% 35 and above 3.6% Limitations Long Term, Ultimate Goals: o New Policies Implemented o Curriculum Changes to Meet External Academic Demands o More Competitive, Attractive Academic Programs, Student Services, Faculty Resources o Increased Philanthropic Giving from Alumni, Corporations & Foundations Random and Convenience Sampling 3 classes were randomly selected Surveys were distributed in class 100% response rate was achieved Overall sample size was 55 graduate students Literature Review Main variables (IV) of student satisfaction: Student Advising Academic Program Technology and Institutional Resources Career and Professional development Social Climate Short-Term (Immediate): o Admissions- better students attract better faculty o Brings information & awareness to stakeholders Our research team conducted a survey designed to measure graduate student satisfaction at Seton Hall University with particular interest in: • student advising • career and professional development • social climate • technology and institutional resources • the academic program Why? (Justifications) 1- Cronbach's Alpha test tends to lower the reliability of Likert scale. 2- Cronbach's Alpha underestimates the reliability of scales with few items. 3- Cronbach's Alpha reliability's estimate is lower with low sample size (55). Academic Support Labs are adequate (reading, writing, language etc.) In the Coefficient table, standardized Beta Coefficient (Model 3) for Academic Support Lab is .467, indicating that 21.8% of the variance is explained by Academic Support Lab. According to Hierarchical Multiple Regression Model 3 is the best Model. It significantly improves on the prior models and adds to the prediction of overall student’s satisfaction at Seton Hall University Internal Resources: Career & Professional Development Well-trained professional staff. Technology & Institutional Resources- Advanced technology & equipment. Academic Advising Faculty and graduate student advisors. Academic Program Competitive Programs. New Programs Based on Market Demands. Upgrading Current Programs. Well-trained support staff Time/Money External Resources: Organizations Interested in Hiring Graduates Legislative Research Purpose Which College Program: Education and Human Services 14.5% Art and Science 23.6% Business 58.2% Health and Science 3.6% Eroded government appropriations, increased pressure for public accountability and higher susceptibility to market demands have all created an environment where higher education institutions are more dependent upon student centered satisfaction in order to maintain enrollment and remain fiscally viable. Questions? It is obvious from the Hierarchical Multiple Regression how Advising, Academic, and Resources heavily impact Students' Satisfaction. Thus, researchers strongly recommend Seton Hall administrators to focus on students' advising, academic programs and providing adequate technology and resources to their students if they want to increase and/or maintain high levels of satisfaction How do student advising, career and professional development, social climate, technology and institutional resources, and the academic program contribute to the overall satisfaction of graduate students at Seton Hall University? How does student satisfaction relate to the financial health of the institution? How do higher education institutions, in general, financially benefit from the overall satisfaction of their students? Full time or Part time student: Full time student: 76.4% Part time Student: 23.6% Level of Degree: Ph.D. 3.6% Masters 80% Non-Matriculated 3.6% Others 12.7% Our research team wanted to examine the factors that enable higher education institutions to remain fiscally viable and maintain healthy student enrollments. One common institutional factor to measure is student satisfaction. 1- The limited sample size (55) makes it difficult to generalize data findings to all SHU graduate population. 2- Survey questions measure students' satisfaction levels, but they don't provide specific information on how to improve services. 3- Limitations of imprecision could occur in this research due to survey wording and/or ordering of questions. 4- To address the low Cronbach's alpha, researchers advise

Transcript: Mumtaz Mahal Mumtaz died at young age of 39 years on June 17, 1631 due to postpartum haemorrhage and from complications related to repeated childbirth. These were preventable causes of maternal mortality, which are still common in India today. Despite great advances in medicines and technology in the last 382 years since then, many women in India still suffer the fate of Mumtaz The base structure is a large multi-chambered cube with chamfered corners forming an unequal eight-sided structure that is approximately 55 metres (180 ft) on each of the four long sides. Each side of the iwan is framed with a huge pishtaq or vaulted archway with two similarly shaped arched balconies stacked on either side. This motif of stacked pishtaqs is replicated on the chamfered corner areas, making the design completely symmetrical on all sides of the building. Four minarets frame the tomb, one at each corner of the plinth facing the chamfered corners. The main chamber houses the false sarcophagi of Mumtaz Mahal and Shah Jahan; the actual graves are at a lower level. Inspiration(Dashnyam) Architecture And Design (Purevdaavuu) History of Taj mahal building (ShirBazar) Tomb(Shijir) Members: Header Dashnyam Shijir PurewDaawuu ShirBazar Tomb of the Taj Mahal The buildings are constructed with walls of brick and rubble inner cores Posthumous portrait of Mumtaz Mahal, wife of Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan (1592 - 1666) Construction began in 1632 AD, (1041 AH) In 1631, Shah Jahan, emperor during the Mughal empire's period of greatest prosperity, was grief-stricken when his favorite of three wives and beloved companion, Mumtaz Mahal, a Persian princess, died during the birth of their 14th child, Gauhara Begum. Construction of the Taj Mahal began in 1632. The court chronicles of Shah Jahan's grief illustrate the love story traditionally held as an inspiration for Taj Mahal.The principal mausoleum was completed in 1643 and the surrounding buildings and garden were finished about five years later. Love history of Taj mahal The Taj Mahal, a wonder of the world and world heritage (cultural) site, is a magnificent specimen of Mughal architecture. Most people know the Taj Mahal, a mausoleum in Agra, India, as a monument of love symbolizing the eternal love of a Mughal emperor Shah Jahan towards his wife Mumtaz. However, not many are aware that the Taj Mahal also tells the story of maternal death and, by extension, a host of issues surrounding it that is emblematic of reproductive health in India. The bricks were fired locally and the sandstone was quarried 28 miles (45 km) away near Fatehpur Sikri. Shah Jahan Tomb Taj MAHAL Best students Costs : Initial estimates for the cost of the works of 4,000,000 rupees had risen to 5,000,000 by completion Over 1,000 elephants were used to transport building materials during the construction. Shahabuddin Muhammad Shah Jahan (5 January 1592 – 22 January 1666) The tomb is the central focus of the entire complex of the Taj Mahal. It is a large, white marble structure standing on a square plinth and consists of a symmetrical building with an iwan (an arch-shaped doorway) topped by a large dome and finial. Like most Mughal tombs, the basic elements are Persian in origin. Taj mahal 22.44 hectares (55.5 acres) Architecture And Design
