    The Chinese college entrance exam : high stakes and pressure cooking by Bush, Madeline

    China's National College Entrance Examination system (NCEE) is the driving force behind the Chinese education system as a whole. This single test is not only a determinant of an examinees future, but also guides the entire country's education system and curriculum while encouraging many traditional Chinese beliefs. In theory the test simply serves to filer students into appropriate colleges using a high-stakes testing system. However, in practice the NCEE serves as a lens through which the Chinese culture looks. This high-stakes testing system has created social urgency and fever surrounding education and college admission. As a single predictor of success and the only factor in college admissions, intense competition and pressure is created in Chinese society. Though the culture created the test, the test is in some respects also shaping the culture.

    Internet addiction disorder : a case study of China by Wang, Mary

    The phenomenon of Internet addiction is emerging as a possible new behavioral addiction with the increasing popularity of Internet use. This thesis reviews recent scientific research about Internet Addiction Disorder (IAD) and examines the neurological correlates of IAD with substance abuse disorders (such as drug abuse) and the question of whether IAD should be recognized as a unique disorder. China is used as a case study because of IAD's recognition as a public health issue. In addition, many of its unique social and political policies (censorship and one child policy) provide an interesting perspective to the debate.
