To improve the system performance, designs with multiple clocks have become more and more popular. In this paper, several novel test generation procedures are proposed to utilize multiple clocks in the design effectively and efficiently in order to dramatically reduce test pattern count without sacrificing fault coverage or causing clock skew problem.

Computer scientists and educational researchers evaluated effectiveness of computerized instruction tailored to evidence-based impairments in specific learning disabilities (SLDs) in students in grades 4 to 9 with persisting SLDs despite prior extra help. Following comprehensive, evidence-based differential diagnosis for dysgraphia (impaired handwriting),(More)
Effectiveness of iPad computerized writing instruction was evaluated for 4(th) to 9(th) graders (n=35) with diagnosed specific learning disabilities (SLDs) affecting writing: dysgraphia (impaired handwriting), dyslexia (impaired spelling), and oral and written language learning disability (OWL LD) (impaired syntax composing). Each of the 18 two-hour lessons(More)

As computer programming becomes more widely embraced as a suitable activity for children, the question arises as to how best to include learing-disabled students in learning coding. The problem is that programming requires a variety of cognitive skills and abilities, many of which may be out of reach for these children. We present “Kokopelli's(More)
Seven children with dyslexia and/or dysgraphia (2 girls, 5 boys, M=11 years) completed fMRI connectivity scans before and after twelve weekly computerized lessons in strategies for reading source material, taking notes, and writing summaries by touch typing or groovy pencils. During brain scanning they completed two reading comprehension tasks-one involving(More)
