Subject Choice In Years 11 And 12, John Ainley, Lyn Robinson, Adrian Beavis, Gerald Elsworth, M Fleming

Dr John Ainley

This report describes patterns of subject enrolments by students in the final two years of secondary school and the relationship of those patterns with a range of personal, social and school characteristics. It examines the combination of subjects which students include in their programs since the package of subjects may be more influential than enrolment in any particular subject.

Public Information Arrival, Thomas Berry, Keith Howe Aug 1994

Public Information Arrival, Thomas Berry, Keith Howe

Thomas D Berry

The authors develop a measure of public information flow to financial markets and use it to document the patterns of information arrival, with an emphasis on the intraday flows. The measure is the number of news releases by Reuter's News Service per unit of time. The authors find that public information arrival is nonconstant, displaying seasonalities and distinct intraday patterns. Next they relate their measure of public information to aggregate measures of intraday market activity. The authors' results suggest a positive, moderate relationship between public information and trading volume but an insignificant relationship with price volatility. Copyright 1994 by ...


Experimental Induction Of Hepatic Lipidosis In Cats, V Biourge, J Groff, R Munn, Claudia Kirk, T Nyland, V Madeiros, J Morris, Q Rogers Aug 1994

Experimental Induction Of Hepatic Lipidosis In Cats, V Biourge, J Groff, R Munn, Claudia Kirk, T Nyland, V Madeiros, J Morris, Q Rogers

Claudia A Kirk

The effect of long-term voluntary fasting on hematologic variables, biochemical profiles, and liver histologic findings was assessed in 15 obese cats (> 40% overweight). Clinical signs and laboratory results consistent with hepatic lipidosis were observed in 12 of 15 cats after 5 to 7 weeks of fasting, and were associated with 30 to 35% reduction of initial body weight. Histologic examination of successive liver biopsy specimens revealed that obesity was not associated with liver parenchymal lipid accumulation, but that fasting resulted in lipidosis in all 15 cats. The long-term fast was associated with an early (after 2 to 4 weeks of ...

Calibrating Essay Markers With The Partial Credit Model, Geoff Masters, Siek Khoo Mar 1994

Calibrating Essay Markers With The Partial Credit Model, Geoff Masters, Siek Khoo

Dr Siek Toon Khoo

This paper shows how a range of differences in marker behaviour, including leniency/severity and central tendency, can be detected and investigated using the Rasch partial credit model. The method allows for variations in the use of rating categories by estimating a set of rating 'thresholds' for each assessor. By calibrating each assessor's rating behaviour in this way, the method automatically takes account of detected differences among assessors in the measurement process.
