 HAMDEN — A Quinnipiac University professor has been honored for a paper of her own.

Computer information systems professor Wendy Ceccucci shared a win for “Best Conference Pedagogy Paper” at the International Association for Computer Information Systems conference in October, for a research paper co-written with professors from James Madison University, Merrimack College, Penn State and Appalachian State universities.

The paper, “Does Personality Play a Role In Computer Information Systems Course Performance?” measured the possible influence of Jungian personality traits as a factor in student success in computer information systems courses. Of the Meyers-Briggs personality types — extraversion/introversion, sensing/intuition, thinking/feeling, judging/perceiving — the researchers found that thinking-type students performed better than the feeling types, and judging-type personalities did better than perceivers.

The paper was co-written by S.E. Kruck (JMU), Patricia Sendall (Merrimack), Alan Peslak (Penn State) and Scott Hunsinger (Appalachian State). Ceccucci has been on the Quinnipiac faculty since 1995.
