Handbook of Formative Assessment

Formative overview has lately develop into a spotlight of renewed study as nation and federal policy-makers become aware of that summative tests have reached some degree of diminishing returns as a device for expanding scholar fulfillment. for this reason, supporters of large-scale trying out courses are actually starting to examine the opportunity of formative tests to enhance scholar fulfillment.

Statistical Methods for Meta-Analysis

The most objective of this booklet is to handle the statistical concerns for integrating autonomous stories. There exist a few papers and books that debate the mechanics of accumulating, coding, and getting ready information for a meta-analysis , and we don't take care of those. simply because this ebook matters technique, the content material inevitably is statistical, and from time to time mathematical.

The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) was established by the Chicago Convention as a vehicle for international cooperation in all aspects of aviation. In 1947, the ICAO became a specialized United Nations agency, headquartered in Montreal, Quebec, with regional offices in Bangkok, Cairo, Dakar, Lima, Mexico City, Nairobi, and Paris. The ICAO consists of an assembly, a council, and a secretariat. The assembly, which is composed of representatives of all contracting states, is the sovereign body of the organization.

The first prototype of the Jaycor HULD was tested in March 1998. In this test, the HULD failed because of separation of the composite ceiling material and the failure of the container door. Jaycor reviewed the failure mode and modified the prototype for a second test that was conducted in January 1999. However, the HULD again failed the blast test because of a failure around the door area. Blast tests were also conducted on a HULD developed by Contemporary Products. This container, developed with funding from the state of Wisconsin, was made of an E-glass-based composite and weighed 1,100 pounds (four times more than a standard ULD).

A great deal has also been learned about the deployment process, particularly the fundamental importance of securing the cooperation of airport authorities, the airlines, and FAA personnel. Because the FAA was aware of the importance of these field data, steps were taken to ensure that the data were analyzed and stored (Dickey, 1998; Fuqua and O’Brien, 1998). Based on these data, the FAA now has the opportunity and means of pursuing a genuine deployment strategy. Indeed, the panel observed that the FAA has taken the following steps toward comprehensive strategic deployment: • The FAA’s Office of Policy and Planning for Civil Aviation Security has developed a series of potential scenarios (dubbed “end states”) for future aviation se- 16 ASSESSMENT OF TECHNOLOGIES DEPLOYED TO IMPROVE AVIATION SECURITY curity and is developing requirements for security checkpoints; the training and performance of personnel; and the handling of cargo, mail, and checked baggage.
