At the beginning of the assessment, you should receive an initial briefing about the timetable of tests, location of rooms etc. Prior to each test, you will be given instructions describing the exercise, your role, timeframe's, equipment etc. You will not be told in detail about the individual indicators which will be measured. In addition, you are unlikely to receive feedback on your results, unless you have been successfully selected.    | Training for Assessors: A collection of activities for training assessment centre assessors, roleplayers and resource persons 25/07/2002 - 16:42 - 1877 reads The data generated from assessment and development centres depends as much on the skill of the assessors as it does on the skill of the candidates. Poorly trained assessors are unlikely to be objective in their observations, will misinterpret or inadequately record evidence, probably come to the wrong conclusions and, if that weren't bad enough, the chances are they'll lack the techniques to provide effective feedback to the candidates they have so misjudged. Lindy Strudwick's collection of activities provides a means of training assessors to an appropriate level of skill, quickly and cost-effectively.

...Summary - Read-Only Participants: A Case for Student Communication in Online Classes Tonia Ray Grand Canyon University: UNV-501 January 30, 2013 Summary - Read-Only Participants: A Case for Student Communication in Online Classes More than ever, online classes are becoming a viable approach and solution for students pursuing undergraduate and secondary degrees. However, the accessibility to these classes does not guarantee all online students are receiving a quality education. Recent studies have shown that as online course enrollment increases, issues with assignment completion, lower quality work, and dropout rates have risen. One study revealed the drop-out rate for online students is 20 to 50% (Nagel, Blignaut, & Cronje, 2009), (as cited in Bernard et al., 2004). In their research, Nagel, Blignaut, and Cronje (2009) like Klemm (1998), Rovani, and Barnum (2003) felt it was essential to be participative in online discussions to be successful in a web-based learning environment. The study also revealed that within the virtual community of learners there exist two types of students that pose a risk to the online learning community, legitimate non-participation and inadvertent non-participation read-only participation. Legitimate non-participation students avoid the stage and are content observing others and contribute little to the success of the group. This type of student does not share personal learning experiences and feeds off group......

Read to Me

...READ TO ME  Why a love of reading is so important in learning to read.  How to instill children's love for reading, as a teacher or parent (what are your suggestions or ideas for promoting children's motivation of reading)? Overview: The Read to Me Project is targeted at students in pre-school. This program is structured to help in the development of reading skills in young children before kindergarten. By encouraging young children to read you are opening up a gateway to a promising future. As a parent and a teacher you know how important reading is. Teaching reading to young children has too many benefits to list but here’s a few: * Reading encourages academic excellence * Language Skills are improved * Communication skills are increased The issue with learning how to read is that it can be complex to those who have no interest or those who cannot grasp the concept at hand. It is a known fact that everyone learns in a different way. Per Shomshak, L., (2004) some students learn in the following styles: THREE BASIC LEARNING STYLES 1. Auditory learners - like to hear their information, talk about and rehash what they hear, love to read aloud and hear stories. 2. Visual learners - want to see everything, look at pictures, understand better by seeing than hearing, like writing. 3. Kinesthetic learners - like hands-on experience, doing, touching, activity, concrete demonstrations. So how can we instill the love of reading into your minds? This......

Learning to Read

...cerebral exploration of ideas? An emotional journey through the lives of believable characters? How long of a book do you want to read? How challenging do you want it to be? Are there certain perspectives you want your book to embrace or avoid? Answering these questions will narrow down the field of possible books. Nonfiction books can be a little easier to narrow down than fiction ones. Most popular nonfiction books are histories or biographies of famous people. Is there a famous person you'd like to know more about? Do you want to know more about a country, a landmark, a war, a historical event? Do you want to know more about oceans, or dinosaurs, or pirates, or stage magic? Pretty much anything you can think of has had a nonfiction book written about it. Just because you find a nonfiction book about something that interests you doesn't necessarily mean you'll like the book. Some books are well written and interesting, others are poorly written and boring. If you find a nonfiction book about something you like, read the first couple of pages first to see if you like the writer's style. If you find the book difficult or boring on the first page, it probably won't get any better as you read through. Go to the library. Your local library is a good place to browse books, since if you see one that interests you, you won't even have to pay anything to read it. Tell the librarian what you're interested in, and ask him or her to point you to one or two areas of the library where......

No Read, No Write

...NO READ, NO WRITE As an Atenean, I am given life on a sliver platter. We are all known for a reality where our unlimited wants and needs are given to us in a blink of an eye. Despondently, this reality isn’t shared by all of the Filipino people. The luxuries of life we have are near impossible for others, just like the family in the picture. Children like the little girl should be in school, not in the streets. In 2010, Philippines ranks 134th in the world’s poorest and 15 million Filipinos are illiterate. That’s almost 15% of the entire Filipino population, enough to populate the entire National Capital Region. One out of six school-age Filipino children is not enrolled, figures from the Department of Education (DepEd) and the National Statistical Coordination Board (NSCB) Imagine the country’s capital, a whole region, made up of only illiterate citizens, is our country this oblivious to the educational needs of the Filipino people? Teacher should be given incentives in order to compensate for the hours of work put into their efforts to teach and environments should be provided which would make learning an enjoyable experience for both teacher and student. In other words, the government needs to use the budget to build the foundation of our nation’s education, not to squander for personal interests. . The recently implemented K-12 curriculum has been drastically applied in both private and public schools. Teachers are currently undergoing trainings and......

And if so, to whom?"  There are several ways to appeal to an audience.  Among them are appealing to logos, ethos and pathos.  These appeals are prevalent in almost all arguments.

...9-111-049 REV: DECEMBER 20, 2010 ROBERT S. KAPLAN RICARDO REISEN DE PINHO Volkswagen do Brasil: Driving Strategy with the Balanced Scorecard Thomas Schmall, CEO of Volkswagen do Brasil (VWB), studied the color-coded charts and indicators on his wall. The data showed financial, customer, process, and employee performance through end-of-year 2008. Schmall a nd his management team had introduced the Balanced Scorecard in 2007 as part of a program to reverse eight consecutive years of market share declines and financial losses. So far, the turnaround had been successful. The new enthusiasm among the workforce, consumers, suppliers, and dealers had led to strong sales increases and a return to profitability. But Schmall, in January 2009, could now see the impact of the global financial crisis. Sales had th plummeted in the 4 quarter and newly-produced vehicles were parked around VWB’s plants waiting for consumers to begin spending again (see Exhibit 1 for VWB’s monthly sales). Many of the previously green marks on sales and profitability on Schmall’s scorecard had turned yellow and red. During the previous two months VWB had responded quickly to the slowdown in consumer purchasing by cutting back production and reducing spending. Schmall was cautious about whether it was time to restore funding or wait until sales recovered before gearing up production schedules and resuming the spending on discretionary programs. Further cutbacks in production schedules......

...the NYSE. As part of the company’s new strategy, it also sought additional opportunities to expand abroad. Petrobras’ International Expansion Petrobras’ goals of diversification and international expansion were shared by many companies in the oil industry, but Petrobras’ need to diversify and expand was particularly acute because 95% of its upstream revenues** were exposed to the risks of a single country, Brazil.2 “We need to diversify our portfolio of assets and generate hard currency cash flow, reduce costs of capital, and position ourselves as a global player,” explained Francisco Gros, Petrobras’ CEO from 2001 to 2002. “We need to be able to process Petrobras’s excess heavy crude oil abroad, to ensure the placement of natural gas, and to build a position in the energy market in South America.”3 Taking advantage of the deepwater expertise acquired in the Campos Basin, Brazil’s largest oilfield, Petrobras’ declared objective was to build a portfolio of upstream assets in Latin America, the Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean, and West Africa. The acquisition of Perez Compac on the verge of the Argentinean 2002 economic crisis, gave Petrobras access to key locations in South America, including drilling and production rights in Ecuador’s Yasuni National Park. Nevertheless, for some investment bankers and industry experts it was not clear whether controlling other oil companies in Latin America was consistent with the diversification strategy to reduce risk or whether it just......
