Varduhi Torosyan Negotiated Portfolio Assessment in University Curriculum

Assessment is a process where teacher brings in a verdict of learners' achievement. Negotiated portfolio assessment supports learners to become members of jury and therefore, to reach their own verdict of attainment. Thus, learners, being members of jury, are encouraged to co-operate and negotiate with teacher, as well as, they are involved in making decisions about the degree to which their performance matches their ability. The study aims to investigate the influence of negotiated portfolio assessment on student motivation. Moreover, it explores the ways in which the students appeared to undergo motivation enhancement. The study also examines cases where the students experienced no motivation enhancement.

Gayane Manukyan The Impact of Portfolio Assessment on Learners. Achievement

The purpose of the present study was to investigate the extent to which portfolio assessment may influence learners' achievement, their learning process, and their attitude towards assessment for learning English. From the two groups involved in the study, the focus group received portfolio assessment whereas the comparison group received placebo. The instruments used were: 1) pre and post instruction tests, 2) pre and post instruction attitudinal questionnaires for students, 3) self-assessment checklists, 4) questionnaire on portfolio assessment-and 5) semi-structured interview with students on portfolio assessment. The pre and post instruction test data was analyzed through non-parametric Kruskal-Wallis test, which showed a significant difference between the comparison and the focus groups. . In order to see the relationship between self-assessment checklist scores and the progress test scores, Spearman's rank order correlation showed high correlation between the two sets of scores.

Torben Lauer Improving Private Portfolios with Alternative Investments. How Small Investors can benefit from Alternative Investments

From a theoretical perspective, alternative investments should be used within every portfolio to increase diversification. The theory goes for institutional and for private investors. For small investors, however, some alternative assets are not accessible.The goal of this study is to evaluate how alternative investments have performed compared to common assets. Some of the available alternative investment possibilities are already in use for many private investors. It is positive that investors buy assets that are not listed on their brokerage account. However, to have efficient portfolios, the asset allocation can be further optimized with respect to Markowitz's modern portfolio theory. The market for alternative investments is small and lacks liquidity. Therefore, the author evaluates their usefulness in terms of accessibility and availability.The findings of this study propose that alternative investments can help to increase portfolio diversification. A portfolio comprised only of alternative investments cannot outperform a traditional one. A combination of alternative assets and traditional assets, however, can outperform the broadly used combinations of equity and debt.

As demands for accountability escalate, assessment continues to evolve as a central aspect of student affairs administration. Experience clearly indicates that without a robust portfolio of assessment activities, the services, programs, and activities of a student affairs division are at risk of being reassigned to other organizational units on campus—or, in a tight budgetary environment, being eliminated. This sourcebook reminds student affairs educators of the importance of developing an assessment program and explores topics that will add depth and richness to such a program. From specific metrics to broad strategies for developing collaborative activities involving academic and student affairs, it shows how to integrate valuable resources into the assessment process and how to use that process to enhance the student experience. The authors also take the largest view, offering advice on developing an institutional culture of assessment and planning future actions that will best serve students during their collegiate years. This is the 142nd volume of this Jossey-Bass higher education quarterly series. An indispensable resource for vice presidents of student affairs, deans of students, student counselors, and other student services professionals, New Directions for Student Services offers guidelines and programs for aiding students in their total development: emotional, social, physical, and intellectual.

President Obama has on a number of occasions rejected policies that have been tried anddo not work. Legislation such as No Child Left Behind and policies such as Race to theTop are neither effective nor based on sound research. Educational policy-making isnow, more than ever, the preserve of politicians, advocacy foundations, and lobbyistsparading as corporate leaders. Teachers have little voice; their role is merely to be heldresponsible for policies foisted upon them.In Transforming Schools: Alternative Perspectives on School Reform, our aim is toprovide alternative perspectives to the dead-end educational policies by which ourgovernments have become consumed. We turn the spotlight on a select range of topicsthat have become the focus of concern and we consider the implications for school improvement. These topics includeschool reform in general, the achievement gap, literacy, standardized assessment, social justice and ecojustice, aestheticand moral education, and general education.

In Alternative Ecological Risk Assessment the author, Lawrence V. Tannenbaum, provides a critical review of current practices in the ecological risk assessment field and proposes alternatives that are supported by established science and keen observation. It is hoped that this approach will pave the way to a greater understanding of what appropriate and useful ecological assessment for contaminated sites should entail. He demonstrates that in most cases current practices do not provide for an assessment of ecological risk, and moreover, that endeavoring to assess ecological risk is actually an unnecessary undertaking at conventional hazardous waste sites. (He states, for example, that the concept of scale is often ignored by practitioners, questions why animals like deer are routinely assessed at 5-acre sites, and challenges the ecotoxicology data currently used.) The book is aimed at students and professionals in the fields of environmental science, ecology, ecotoxicology, and health risk assessment.

Benjamin Güttler Asset allocation strategies in the current low interest rate environment

Master's Thesis from the year 2015 in the subject Business economics - Banking, Stock Exchanges, Insurance, Accounting, grade: 1,0, University of Applied Sciences Osnabrück, language: English, abstract: Institutional investors face serious challenges due to the current low interest rate environment and their payment obligations. Life insurance companies in Germany have invested the majority of their assets in fixed-income securities. Thus, asset managers struggle to earn adequate returns as a consequence of low yields of high-grade sovereign bonds. As a consequence, institutional investors are forced to rethink their asset allocation, which is vital for the investment success. This thesis aims to evaluate asset allocation strategies in the light of the low interest rate environment that enable investors to generate adequate risk-adjusted returns. A sample portfolio is developed that is broadly diversified, has exposure to alternative investments and applies the Risk Parity ap-proach. The performance is evaluated over different evaluation periods on a risk-adjusted basis and in comparison to other asset allocation strategies. As a result, the sample portfolio outper-forms the current asset allocation of German life insurers and naïve diversification. However, portfolios with significant exposure to private equity or stocks outperform the sample portfolio in terms of Sharpe ratio but require a higher risk tolerance. Nevertheless, the sample portfolio achieves a satisfactory...

Barbara A. Diana Benjamin Britten's 'Holy Theatre' from Opera-Oratorio to Theatre-Parable

Benjamin Britten's works for the stage developed from the traditional late nineteenth-century romantic opera structure of Peter Grimes to the experimental format of the church parables and of Death in Venice, his last opera. At the core of this development seems to have been Britten's intention to use the stage as a pulpit to express his philosophical views. This book explores an assessment of how these influenced his creative choices, mainly examining the composer's own writings, from his early involvement with left wing activism during the Thirties through to his more spiritually oriented objectives after the war, and offers alternative readings of two of Britten's most controversial works for the stage, The Rape of Lucretia and Death in Venice.
