Dissertation: The Effect Of Study Skills Training Intervention On United States Air Force Aeromedical Apprentices, John Griffith Jul 1998

Dissertation: The Effect Of Study Skills Training Intervention On United States Air Force Aeromedical Apprentices, John Griffith

John Griffith

The study examined the effects of a study skills training intervention course on U.S. Air Force Aeromedical Apprentices with five main purposes. The first was to examine the relationship between study skills training and the number of times students required academic interventions outside of normal class time. The second purpose was to examine the relationship between study skills training and end of course averages. The third was to determine the relationship between study skills training and the amount of additional instruction, measured in time, students required. The fourth purpose examined the relationship between study skills training and graduation rates ...

Taurine Status In Cats Is Not Maintained By Dietary Cysteinesulfinic Acid, S Edgar, Claudia Kirk, Q Rogers, J Morris Mar 1998

Taurine Status In Cats Is Not Maintained By Dietary Cysteinesulfinic Acid, S Edgar, Claudia Kirk, Q Rogers, J Morris

Claudia A Kirk

Endogenous synthesis of taurine by cats is limited. Putative precursors of taurine, cysteinesulfinic acid and cysteic acid, were fed to cats to determine whether they were utilized. Groups of five cats were depleted of taurine by a resin (Colestipol(R)) diet, then given 6 dietary treatments containing (g/kg diet): 0.0, 0.4, or 0.8 taurine; or 0.98 or 1.96 cysteinesulfinic acid, or 0.4 taurine + 1.0 cysteic acid for 12 wk. Plasma and whole blood taurine concentrations and body weights were measured weekly. Concentration of taurine in semitendinosus muscle was measured initially, after 2 ...

Assessment In Primary Schools, John Ainley Dec 1997

Assessment In Primary Schools, John Ainley

Dr John Ainley

This chapter focuses on one of the elements that has been brought to centre stage by restructuring processes, assessment. It discusses the breadth of evidence used by modern primary teachers to establish the extent to which student learning has occurred, including observations, portfolios, projects, and paper and pen testing. It argues that for assessment to inform teachers about student learning proper interpretation of the data must occur, which includes reference to other pupils' performances, whether or not specific criteria have been achieved or how this piece of work measures up to other work that the student has done. It discusses ...

'Absolutely Worth The Effort!' The Final Report Of The Adult Numeracy And Mathematics On Line (Anamol) Project., B Marr, B Johnston, Dave Tout Dec 1997

'Absolutely Worth The Effort!' The Final Report Of The Adult Numeracy And Mathematics On Line (Anamol) Project., B Marr, B Johnston, Dave Tout

David (Dave) Tout

By utilising on-line communication technology, The ANAMOL project aimed to address the problems of numeracy teachers who often work in isolated situations. Teachers from four states communicated both on a weekly basis using 'chat' technology, and irregularly via web- based discussion forum. Through these discussions, teaching materials were written, trialled, refined and published on a newly- developed website. This report documents the action research methodology used, the project outcomes and implications and recommendations for further on-line professional development.

Dietary Taurine Needs Of Cats Vary With Dietary Protein Quality And Concentration, R Backus, J Morris, S Kim, J O'Donnell, M Hickman, Claudia Kirk, J Cooke, Q Rogers Dec 1997

Dietary Taurine Needs Of Cats Vary With Dietary Protein Quality And Concentration, R Backus, J Morris, S Kim, J O'Donnell, M Hickman, Claudia Kirk, J Cooke, Q Rogers

Claudia A Kirk

The influence of dietary protein on the taurine requirement of cats was evaluated by analysing the results from several experiments in which taurine status of cats was assessed after several weeks of feeding purified and commercial diets. The diets varied in taurine content, protein source and protein concentration, with some diets cooked or containing cooked ingredients.The quality and concentration of dietary protein affected taurine requirement. As indicated by digestibility estimates, taurine requirement increased when protein quality decreased. When diets containing protein in excess of that required were fed, the need for taurine was increased by increasing dietary protein level ...
