Texas State Technical College West Texas Uses Outcomes Based Assessment to Revive Nursing Program

Pass Rate on Licensing Exam Jumped 77 to 100 Percent Using Direct Evidence of Student Learning through ExamSoft Technology Platform

Dallas, Texas, August 27, 2013 – The Texas State Technical College West Texas (TSTC) LVN to ADN Nursing Program was able to increase the pass rate on the National Council Licensing Exam (NCLEX) from 77 percent to 100 percent by taking a strategic and aggressive approach to assessment. TSTC-West Texas was able to improve programmatic effectiveness and student retention based on evidence and insights in student learning using ExamSoft’s intelligent assessment platform, the company announced today.

TSTC-West Texas is part of a state performance-based pilot program that only reimburses the institution when graduates secure a job within their field of study. In 2011, with the NCLEX pass rate at 77 percent and retention rate near 50 percent, TSTC-West Texas was placed on conditional status by the Texas Board of Nursing and could not admit any new students. TSTC-West Texas decided to adopt an assessment platform to help completely revamp and refine their curriculum and better help their students learn, prepare for and pass the NCLEX – a barrier to employment for nurses. Since implementing ExamSoft, the NCLEX pass rate, retention rate and employment rate among graduates are all 100 percent.

“Since our state funding depends on our students graduating and getting jobs, their success is our success,” said Shawntay Sparks, Instructor and Program Chair, Texas State Technical College West Texas LVN to ADN Nursing Program. “By taking a strategic approach to assessment using ExamSoft’s platform, we can easily track and measure performance across a wide set of learning outcomes and it gives us the tools and evidence we need to remediate students on a individual basis, refine our curriculum, increase retention and help students succeed in their careers.”

TSTC-West Texas uses ExamSoft to design, manage and administer all exams, tests and quizzes in a computer-based platform and enables them to “tag” every question to learning objectives so they can track and measure student performance. With data available immediately after each exam, faculty use the learning analytics to inform targeted feedback for students and implement remediation strategies based on students’ individual needs. Longitudinal assessment data gives TSTC-West Texas the evidence they need to track students over time and map and refine their curriculum.

“We’re excited to see the kind of dramatic turn around TSTC-West Texas has seen because it shows how important a role technology and data can play in helping drive student success,” said Daniel Muzquiz, Chief Executive Officer of ExamSoft. “We thrive on helping institutions and programs succeed in their missions by giving them the technology and insights they need to help engage their students, enhance the learning experience and improve outcomes.”

In addition to being able to enhance revenue reimbursements from the state, TSTC-West Texas was taken off conditional admittance by the Texas Board of Nursing in October 2012 and anticipates being placed on full approval in January 2014. TSTC-West Texas’ accelerated online nursing program, established in 2008, includes two campuses serving 26 rural counties and trains students to become registered nurses.

“We have students scattered around the state who face and conquer challenges every day for the opportunity to achieve their degree and become better nurses, so we strive to deliver a high quality education with a non-traditional approach,” said Sparks. “In an online accelerated program, there is no time to allow a student to get behind and ExamSoft gives us the tools to find and address issues immediately and the technology is so solid that we can rely on it to support the program, and the students, in reaching this goal.”

SAFE International Self Defense Announces launch of SAFE International Certified Partner, Self-Defense Manitoba

SAFE International is a leading provider of self defense training in North America. SAFE International is pleased to announce the launch of SAFE International Certified Partner, Self-Defense Manitoba, who will provide a focused marketing campaign to provide self defense to women, corporations and high school students.

Winnipeg, MB, August 27, 2013 (Straight Line PR) -- SAFE International™ is a leading provider of self defense training in North America. It currently operates throughout Canada and has expanded to include SAFE International Certified Partner, Self-Defense Manitoba, with a focused marketing campaign to provide Winnipeg self defense to women, men, corporations and high schools. SAFE International has delivered training to over one hundred thousand (175,000) people since 1994. Self-Defense Manitoba is owned and managed by Chris Friesen, Managing Principal, who is a professional teaching Director and self-defense instructor.

Mr. Friesen began Self-Defense Manitoba in the Spring of 2013 and has become the first SAFE International™ Certified Partner in Canada. He saw there was a lack of practical and effective self defense instruction for people in the province of Manitoba. The SAFE International high school courses have become known for their instruction on how to deal with conflict before it starts rather than just deal with the physical side of self defense. While self protection is a serious topic, the SAFE instructors have managed to develop a course that integrates humour while still getting a serious message across to students/clients. Chris Friesen will be teaching specially tailored Winnipeg Corporate self defense courses in the corporate environment, particularly to companies/organizations that are in higher risk professions including health care, real estate, sales people, etc. Self protection is a not only a necessity, but is also a form of insurance that will make your business more profitable and your employees more confident and secure. Workplace violence is a serious issue and SAFE has the ability to teach workplace staff how to deal with all aspects of confrontation including the Awareness/Avoidance stages along with Verbal Diffusing skills and physical self defense.

SAFE International Certified Partners also offer specialized Women’s Self Defense Winnipeg courses to women’s groups, including their Women’s Self Defense Parties. Twenty five percent of women will be assaulted during their lifetime. This is an alarming fact especially since over forty seven percent of crime is unreported. Women will know their attacker fifty seven percent of the time according to studies. Women lead busy lives and need easy to remember tactics that work in real-life situations. They also need training that fits into their busy schedules. SAFE International Certified Partner instructors understand the challenges that women face and offer classes, group seminars and private lessons to fit into anyone's schedule.

SAFE International has become North America’s most popular high school course for both boys and girls due to the fact that they don't teach martial arts, but rather a practical approach to personal safety with an emphasis on recognizing and avoiding potentially dangerous situations. All instructors are certified through SAFE International™ and have a unique ability to reach the students in an effective and memorable manner. SAFE International has traditionally focused on self defense instruction for high school students. It offers 1, 3, 4 or 5 hour courses which can be taught over consecutive days or all in one day depending upon the school/ organization's needs. They offer High School self defense customized to the class needs and expectations. Each session includes discussion, role playing and a practical physical component ending with their famous simulated attacks in which the students get the opportunity to practice their newly learned skills on a padded instructor. These are real-world tactics that can be used by anyone against violent and stressful attacks.

Contact SAFE International Certified Partner Chris Friesen to schedule self defense for your corporation, group, or school. You can visit their websites at You can also email Chris Friesen directly by email at You can also reach Mr. Friesen toll free at 1-800-465-5972.

OK1984 + Kreayshawn Make a Quietly Loud Statement

What happens when you merge a team of hip Californian designers with one of hip-hop’s most buzz-worthy artists?

Los Angeles, CA, August 26, 2013 – What happens when you merge a team of hip Californian designers with one of hip-hop’s most buzz-worthy artists? You get a distinct capsule collection of understated yet thought provoking jewelry that says just enough. “I designed this for the girls who express more with less. There’s no need to do the talking when your jewelry can do it for you,” explains renowned artist Kreayshawn.

Whatever you’ve heard about the Bay Area musician and director, Kreayshawn is nothing if not scrappy. Born in September 1989 in San Francisco, as Natassia Zolot, to a teenage single mother, the pocket-sized artist relied on her wits to navigate the roughest sections of the city. By the age of 16, she found herself in a pivotal moment that would forever change her life and prompt her to become the pioneer she is today, turning hardship into empowerment and fueling her future through drive and creativity.

With a record deal from Columbia Records and a true cult following, it is clear to see why OK1984 jumped at the opportunity to team up with this gorgeous powerhouse. Known for her seemingly eclectic and truly unique personal style, Kreayshawn sets out to discover new and original influences that will make her music stand out from the rest. She seeks to inspire and be inspired, and, much like OK1984’s jewelry, she is fresh, edgy and undeniably talented. Incorporating each independent characteristic into one cohesive line, OK1984 and Kreayshawn have created a range of pieces that will unleash the voice inside you.

Launching August 26, 2013, the collaboration capsule, which will range from starry-eyed smiley face pendants to spirited alien head rings, will retail for $21 - $30, exclusively at

Justin Ligeri and Yagoozon Inc. Named Fastest Growing Retailer by Inc. Magazine

Three years ago Justin Ligeri was broke. His prospects were grim and odds of success were poor. Fast forward to August 2013 and the young eCommerce phenom is on track to do in excess of $20 million in sales this year, earning the recognition of Inc. Magazine.

Sebring, FL, August 26, 2013 (Straight Line PR) -- Three years ago Justin Ligeri was broke. Looking at the worst economy in the last 85 years, most people would say his prospects were grim and the odds of success were poor. Fast forward to August 2013 and the young 35 year old eCommerce phenom is on track to do in excess of $20 million in sales this year.

He and his company Yagoozon, Inc. were recently named the #11 fastest growing company in the world and the #1 fastest growing company in the Retailing space.

Starting over with only $40 in the winter of 2010, he has bankrolled that amount into a booming company that has venture capitalists and vendors amazed at his ability to sell merchandise quickly and profitably.

"Here is the reality," said Ligeri from Yagoozon's ( ) main warehouse in Central Florida. "The average consumer needs to understand that today the news media is like a drug dealer that only peddles bad news. They understand that bad news gets better ratings than good news. So they try and fixate your attention on the side of the ledger that has been disrupted by the web. Huge layoffs, plant closings, poor earnings, and a contracting economy. It's not that their news is incorrect, rather it lacks objectivity. They show all of the things that have been DISRUPTED, and never stop to communicate that it is companies like mine that embrace the power of the web, that are doing the DISRUPTING."

New technology creates new opportunities and new rules for amassing wealth, according to Ligeri.

"In the retail space where I am very active, traditional retailers who operate ignoring the power of the web, will follow the path of Kodak corporation, which filed for bankruptcy last year. I, on the other hand, hope to be able to continue to use the web and joint ventures to sell high demand products to my audience," explains Ligeri.

He goes on to say, "Three years ago I was worse than broke. Today I sell more than one thousand mom and pop stores put together. The difference is that I have embraced the power of the web."

Ligeri speaks briefly in a short YouTube video about the path he took to achive his current success:

Today, he is clearly a top contender to be the Entrepreneur of The Year. "I am beyond honored and excited to be a contender for this prestigious award," said Ligeri. "Its nice to receive the acknowledgment from the business community. It certainly has been a fun ride."

The 2013 Inc. 500|5000 Conference ( ) is scheduled for October 10-12 in Washington, D.C. It is expected that Yagoozon, Inc. will be recognized once again as a rapidly rising star in the eCommerce firmament.

Brand New - Dynamic Auto Income for Today

As 2013 cruises in on an unprecedented rise in consumer information products and social media consumption/usage, there are a few hardcore market observations that must be acknowledged— and, some pretty exciting implications to note.

Conifer, CO, August 20, 2013 - As 2013 cruises in on an unprecedented rise in consumer information products and social media consumption/usage, there are a few hardcore market observations that must be acknowledged— and, some pretty exciting implications to note.

1. As is, the affiliate product launch model will give way to a more personal relationship-based model in 2013.

2. The word at ground level is that (as typical in human nature) there'll be an increase in demand for done-for-you services/products.

3. The emergence of new social media platforms will decrease, as we saw an explosion of these events between 2011 and 2012. Instead, there will be an explosion of offerings in closely related markets (think Google+ Hangouts).

4. Even free-traffic wizards will feel a slight sting as paid traffic increasingly becomes more of a reality. It can still be done— it just won't be as easy/relevant as before.

5. Video marketing will become even more popular than it already is. And, if anything ever happened at Youtube (think: Netflix), there are so many "under-explored" video platforms waiting with open doors for the new traffic.

6. Sorry, product launches will continue to be a pain.

Now for those dynamic Implications I promised:

If you speak to individuals, such as yourself, who were involved in a particular movement— whether it be the super affiliate market of today, civil rights of the 60's, or the race to the moon- they'll tell you that it was hard to see exactly how important the movement was when they were on the verge of the new dawn…

If 2013 calls for building personal relationships with clients and partners, it sweeps open the door for you to gain brand traction in new social and economic circles.

This brand traction will bring about short and long-term sustainability in the shifting market!

Old and New Clients will be willing to put their dollars behind their demand for these premium services and products. And for good reason— after all, they are seeking the best. It's up to you (and your partners, if you'd like) to set the standard.
As remnants of market events up through 2012 fades away, early adopters are presented with an exciting opportunity in 2013 to "design" a new product launch market -  without the pain of yesterday. Here's how:

This is a powerful program that will help you "re-fire" your brand in a dynamic way to gain/maintain position continuity early on in the game.

Our program is designed to energize and expand an already healthy revenue portfolio by:

Adding an additional (significant) income stream to your portfolio

Enhancing client/partner acquisition and/or adding a new campaign

Incorporating the latest and greatest web tools and enhancing audience reach

Getting and/or keeping partners/clients excited about you and your brand

Enhancing synergistic relationships between you and your partners In addition, it provides:

An incentive cycle to encourage purchase upgrades

A paradigm shift for those who want to improve revenue health

Early adoption long-term benefits and exciting implications

A dynamic social platform for business professionals

In plain English, you'll create sustainability for your brand, gain another significant income model and have fun doing it. Become an early market leader and lead on!

To see the program in action, please contact me at (303) 437- 8856

My sincere thanks for your time and attention and l look forward to speaking with you.

Be Really Blessed, Bob Hokanson,, Get Involved:

Bryant & Stratton College Announces The Lori Appleford Administrative Excellence Scholarship

New scholarship honors College’s longest-serving employee, Lori Appleford; eligible to new students interested in enrolling in administrative programs

Buffalo, NY, August 22, 2013 – Bryant & Stratton College announced today the launch of the Lori Appleford Administrative Excellence Scholarship. The Scholarship recognizes Bryant & Stratton College’s longest-serving employee, Lori Appleford, who is retiring from the College at the end of this month after 45 years with the College. It honors her commitment to academic and professional excellence and is available to eligible students interested in enrolling in the College’s administrative programs.

Ms. Appleford started her career at Bryant & Stratton College as a student and has worked for the College longer than any employee in the institution’s history. Prior to graduating, she began working in a temporary capacity for Bryant Girl, a subsidiary of the institution, which provided temporary secretarial assistance to area businesses. She graduated from Bryant & Stratton College in September 1968 and that November was hired as a full-time keypunch operator for the College.

In the years to follow, Ms. Appleford was promoted to a position in the payroll division and served as Executive Administrative Assistant to Francis (Fran) Gustina, Treasurer at Bryant & Stratton College. In 1980, Mr. Gustina became President of Bryant & Stratton and Ms. Appleford continued as his Executive Administrative Assistant. Subsequently, Ms. Appleford served in this position for five different presidents. While supporting the respective Presidents, Ms. Appleford provided assistance for a number of Vice-presidents, Directors and professional staff. In addition, Ms. Appleford has been responsible for all administrative matters related to the Board of Directors.

“Lori’s absence will be felt when she retires at the end of the month and by creating the Lori Appleford Administrative Excellence Scholarship, we not only honor her service, but her legacy as well,” said Dr. Fran Felser, Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer at Bryant & Stratton College. “The Appleford Scholarship is a fitting tribute to our friend and colleague whose dedication and commitment to the College is an inspiration to all. The significant contributions she made over her 45 year career with the College will continue on as the Appleford Scholarship helps future generations of administrative professionals realize career success as well.”

The Lori Appleford Administrative Excellence Scholarship may be awarded to new students enrolling in administrative programs at any of the New York State campuses. To be eligible, students must submit a written essay prior to their third week of their first term. Full and part-time students, who maintain their academic standing in accordance with the College’s established scholarship guidelines, may be awarded up to $1,000 per term not to exceed $5,000. Up to 10 scholarships may be awarded in each semester. Students interested in applying for the Appleford Scholarship should contact their local campus.

After retirement, Ms. Appleford plans to stay involved in the Buffalo community by volunteering at the Botanical Gardens as well as spending time with her family and traveling.
