The importance of formative assessment in student learning is generally acknowledged , but it is not well understood across higher education. The identification of some key features of formative assessment opens the way for a discussion of theory. It is argued that there is a need for further theoretical development in respect of formative assessment, which(More)
Myeloid bodies (MBs) occur in the newt (Notophthalmus viridescens) retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) and are similar to areas of specialized endoplasmic reticulum found in a variety of other cell types. The function of these structures is unknown, although a role in lipid metabolism has been strongly suggested. Random samples from conventionally-fixed and(More)
It has been suggested (Yorke and Dickson 1984) that myeloid bodies (MBs) in the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) of the newt, Notophthalmus viridescens, may represent areas of endoplasmic reticulum where lipids, such as 11-cis retinal derived from phagocytized outer segment tips, accumulate prior to esterification. Experiments in which an artificial ester(More)
The retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) of the newt (Notophthalmus viridescens) was examined ultrastructurally under both in-vivo and in-vitro conditions. Five distinct conformations of smooth endoplasmic reticulum (SER), two lamellar and three tubular, were observed. The two lamellar conformations included myeloid bodies, which have previously been described(More)
Myeloid bodies (MBs) are specialized regions of endoplasmic reticulum which occur in the retinal pigment epithelium of a number of vertebrate species. In the newt, Notophthalmus viridescens, the effects of temperature and brief exposure to bright flashed-light on myeloid bodies have been studied. Morphometric analysis has shown that in animals sampled at(More)
