Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITS) are computer programs that model learners’ psychological states to provide individualized instruction. They have been developed for diverse subject areas (e.g., algebra, medicine, law, reading) to help learners acquire domain-specific, cognitive and metacognitive knowledge. A meta-analysis was conducted on research that(More)
In today’s web-based environment, strategic actors collaborate and compete to further its interests and opportunities. In this paper, we propose optimizing the requirements elicitation process through the combined use of the i* modeling framework with the quantitative risk analysis model of Bayesian Network (BN), so that strategic actors can(More)
Risk management and assessment of software project is highly relevant to the social and culture context of the development activities. This paper proposes a risk analysis approach which represents the organizational settings of a project as a social dependency network, and identifies risks originated from broken role dependency relations, unsatisfied goals,(More)
In addition to its acute effects on hormone secretion, epithelial transport, and shape change, the calcium-sensing receptor (CaSR) modulates the expression of genes that control cell survival, proliferation, and differentiation as well as the synthesis of peptide hormones and enzymes. In the present study, we investigated the impacts of a CaSR agonist and(More)
Our aim was to explore the involvement of the transcriptional suppressor GCF2 in silencing RhoA, disorganization of the cytoskeleton, mislocalization of MRP1, and sensitivity to anticancer agents as an upstream gene target in cancer therapy. Increased expression of GCF2 was found in human cisplatin-resistant cells, and overexpression in GCF2-transfected(More)
Ground control point (GCP) extraction is an essential step in automatic registration of remote sensing images. However the lack of quantitative and objective methods for analyzing the GCP quality becomes the bottleneck that prevents the broad development of automatic image registration. Although several measurements for evaluating the number, accuracy and(More)
Modeling high-level enterprise strategies helps clarify the intentional dependencies between the organizational actors. Business process models, on the other hand, give more elaborated descriptions to the enterprise daily operations. In this paper, we aim to synthesize these two modeling perspectives by synthesizing the i* model and the UML activity diagram.
