Team software engineering projects can enhance student learning and commitment, but it is challenging to determine a method of assessment that assesses the intended learning outcomes; particularly when assessing teamwork and an individual’s contribution to the team’s work. The students themselves are often the best source of meaningful data, and self and(More)
Real industry projects and teamwork can have a great impact on student learning and commitment, but provision of these features also produces significant challenges for academic assessment. This paper describes an approach to evaluate teams and individuals who develop unique industry projects. The paper documents several years of experimentation with(More)
For the last six years, students in the Software Engineering Project course at the University of Tasmania have undertaken projects in teams of four or five members. Since 1998 peer testing sessions have been conducted in two different formats: paired peer code reviews and group peer inspections. The critique that the testers perform can help the development(More)
The catalytic potential of community-based organizations to promote health, prevent disease, and address racial, ethnic, and socio-economic disparities in local communities is well recognized. However, many CBOs, particularly, small- to medium-size organizations, lack the capacity to plan, implement, and evaluate their successes. Moreover, little assistance(More)
Community-based organizations (CBOs) have the potential to promote and sustain health, prevent disease, and address health disparities, but many lack the capacity to do so. An assessment of the 20 CBOs receiving supplemental grant funding from the Pfizer Foundation Southern HIV/AIDS Prevention Initiative indicated a high level of knowledge for developing(More)
The prominence of the human mismatch repair (MMR) pathway is clearly reflected by the causal link between MMR gene mutations and the occurrence of Lynch syndrome (or HNPCC). The MMR family of proteins also carries out a plethora of diverse cellular functions beyond its primary role in MMR and homologous recombination. In fact, members of the MMR family of(More)
This report aims to facilitate the implementation of the Three Rs (replacement, reduction, and refinement) in the use of animal models or procedures involving sepsis and septic shock, an area where there is the potential of high levels of suffering for animals. The emphasis is on refinement because this has the greatest potential for immediate(More)
