DescriptionThis report looks at why so many tenants in Philadelphia are not participating in proceedings that could result in their losing their homes. Findings indicate that certain aspects of the court process, if addressed, could result in the entry of fewer default judgments–and thus fewer evictions based upon them.

Gaining Entry Into a Teacher Preparation Program in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania: Assessing the Most Valid PredictorsDuCette, Joseph P.; Najera, Kristina; Davis, James Earl, 1960-; Gross, Steven Jay (Temple University. Libraries, 2017)This study assessed the most valid predictors of success of students entering into an undergraduate teacher preparation program in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Using existing institutional data from a small, private, urban university in Philadelphia, analyses of the data identified variables with the greatest predictive ability. The variables were then used to develop a prediction model that predicts performance on the Basic Skills Math Test and Basic Skills Reading Test. The results of this study provide the university with an instrument to identify students most likely to pass the basic skills test and gain entry into the teacher preparation program. The results of this study also provide the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania support for using SAT scores as a measure of proficiency of basic skills in gaining entry into an undergraduate teacher preparation program. Implications of the research on admissions practices, teacher preparation program development, and education reform are discussed in the recommendations.
TRADE AND EXCHANGE OF STEATITE, 3000 BC-750 BC, IN THE SUSQUEHANNA AND DELAWARE RIVER WATERSHEDS OF PENNSYLVANIAFarnsworth, Paul, 1958-; Hansell, Patricia; Hansell, Patricia (Temple University. Libraries, 2017)Trade and exchange of Steatite in the Susquehanna and Delaware river watersheds becomes more visible in the archaeological record approximately 3000 BC. This study will examine procurement and consumption of steatite bowls within the above watersheds of Pennsylvania between 3000 BC to 750 BC. Looking at the distribution of steatite sites in comparison to the distance from the quarry locations has enabled us to examine the trade and exchange model being utilized to acquire this material. The two models that are applicable to this region are direct procurement and down-the-line. Direct-procurement and down-the-line trade have distinct distribution drop-off patterns from the source. Using spatial analysis the distribution drop-off patterns from preferred steatite sources were examined. The data shows that steatite, a valued resource, was directly procured by a small number of groups within the watersheds examined.
