Problem solving is a crucial skill for students who experience learning and living in the 21st century. To enhance this skill, students need to face a situation setting problem, then students solve the problem. After students overcome the obstacles, feelings of pride and success grow in students’ hearts. Successful minds of students will lead the students to become problem solvers and will be embedded into their thought process. It is quite hard to find the right way to establish the problem solving skill. Robot programming is a selective course for the secondary level of education for Thai schools. The activities in this program provide students a chance to identify the problem, identify and analyze the cause of the problem, propose a problem solving method and examine the problem solving result. The problem solving skill test (PSST) included 4 levels of problem solving skills as well. PSST consisted of 57 multiple-choice items. The test can bridge the content of robot programming and the problem solving skills. It is useful for evaluating the skill progress in secondary schools in Thailand.

American Journal of Climate Change (AJCC) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ajcc.2015.41009
Abstract: This paper investigates dynamically downscaled regional climate model (RCM) output from the North American Regional Climate Change Assessment Program (NARCCAP) for two sub-regions of the Southeast United States. A suite of four statistical measures were used to assess model skill and biases were presented in hindcasting daily minimum and maximum temperature and mean precipitation during a historical reference period, 1970-1999. Most models demonstrated high skill for temperature during the historical period. Two outliers included two RCMs run using the Geophysical Fluids Dynamics Lab (GFDL) model as their lateral boundary conditions; these models suffered from a cold maximum temperature bias. Improvement with GFDL-based projections of maximum temperature was noted from May through November when they ran with observed seasurface conditions (GFDL-timeslice), particularly for the east sub-region. Precipitation skill proved mixed-relatively high when measured using a probability density function overlap measurement or the index of agreement, but relatively low when measured with root-mean square error or mean absolute error, because several models overestimated the frequency of extreme precipitation events.

C. Girija Navaneedhan
Creative Education (CE) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2015.622245
Abstract: Self-analysis is an effective psychoanalytical technique to analyze one’s own personality and behavior. This technique is an effective approach in establishing concrete learning among knowledge seekers. The experiment is conducted on 50 teachers by applying self-analysis technique. For example, the concept to be taught is “Learning”, each teacher has to introspect on the topic “Learning” by answering the questionnaire on the components of “Learning” namely i) knowledge; 2) behavior; 3) skills and 4) values. Each of these components consists of 20 statements which analysis the concept “Learning” because knowledge, behavior, skills and values are the major outcome of “Learning”. By self-introspection every teacher arrives at clear specific learning objectives regarding the concept to be taught. This method helps the teachers to arrive at a clear picture to frame the lesson-plan to meet learning outcomes.

Abstract: Acute Respiratory Tract Infection (ARTI) remains a health problem for toddlers in Indonesia and the leading cause of death for toddlers. In addition to causing health problems, ARTI can also cause death. Indonesia, as one of the countries signing of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), is required to be able to reduce toddler mortality rate. The research intends to find the effectiveness of treatment training for children with ARTI in increasing the knowledge, attitude, and skill of mothers of toddlers in the working area of Community Health Centre Sukajadi, Bandung. It employed a quasiexperimental method with the pre-posttest two group designs. The sample, taken with the random sampling technique, consisted of 26 mothers of toddlers for the control and intervention groups, respectively. For the intervention group, the treatment training for children with ARTI was given for 4 - 5 hours in one day, and the control group was only given a conventional extension program for 15 minutes. The knowledge, attitudes, and skills before and after intervention were measured three days after the training using the same instrument used during the pretest. The results of this research show that in terms of the effectiveness of the training using modules, there were differences in the average scores for knowledge with p value (0.030 ≤ α (0.05), for the aspect of attitudes with p value (0.046) ≤ α (0.05), and for the sub-variable of skills as proven by the p value of (0.046) ≤ α (0.05). Based on these results, the intervention of ARTI treatment training at home had significant effect on the knowledge, attitudes, and skills of the toddlers’ mothers. With this inference, it is recommended that the research results can be made a topic of study for the development of a training model or standardized training guidelines that will be used by health officers at Community Health Centre Sukajadi, Bandung City Indonesian.

Open Journal of Business and Management (OJBM) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ojbm.2018.62027
This paper explores the impact of accrual quality information on fund investment decisions, and examines whether fund managers can use the stock’s accrual quality information to obtain excess returns, and the difference in fund manager’s skill to influence the extent of the fund’s excess returns. This paper uses the annual observations of 2851 Chinese funds, from 2005 to 2016 to analyze the fund manager’s stock investment decision. The results show that in China capital market, there is a risk premium for accrual quality, and fund managers can obtain excess returns through selecting stocks with poor accrual quality. And fund managers with better skill, can obtain more excess returns.

Finance Contr?le Stratégie , 2012,
Abstract: La formulation de la stratégie d’une entreprise s’appuie sur la compétence d’un collectif, formé de l’ensemble des acteurs qui prennent part à la décision. Cependant, prendre des décisions à plusieurs ne va pas de soi : il ne suffit pas de réunir différents individus pour qu’ils deviennent collectivement compétents. L’objectif de cet article est de montrer que le contexte identitaire joue un r le décisif pour favoriser la mobilisation effective de la compétence des collectifs décisionnels. A partir d’une enquête qualitative auprès de 57 dirigeants, experts et membres de conseil d’administration de coopératives, est mise en évidence une typologie d’identités, qui influence la compétence collective lors des processus de prise de décision stratégique. Différents moyens, sont, en outre, proposés pour renforcer la capacité à mobiliser une compétence collective lors de prises de décisions stratégiques, et de mettre en évidence un lien entre compétence collective et performance d’entreprise. The formulation of a firm’s strategy leans on a competence of a collective, formed by all actors who take part in the decision. But nevertheless the potential of such an approach, it is not obvious to make decisions together : it is not enough to gather various individuals so that they become collectively competent. The aim of this article is to show that organizational identity plays a critical role, in order to facilitate the effective mobilization of a decision-making collective skill. We conducted a qualitative survey with 57 top managers, experts and members of board of cooperatives. This survey permitted to put in evidence a typology of organizational identity and to show that it influences the degree of collective competence during decision processes. The results allow us also to propose some means, to strengthen the capacity to mobilize a collective competence during strategic decision-making. And they bring to light a link between collective competence and firm’s performance.

Abstract: This study aimed to examine the relationship be-tween sprint ability and base running of baseball players and track-and- field (T&F) athletes, and to identify the association between sprint ability and running skill on base running. The subjects were 25 male university baseball players and 15 male T&F athletes without baseball experience. The straight sprint time of 54.8 m and 109.6 m (corresponding to the distance to second and home) was measured. In the home run test, the times to reach each base were measured. In the second base run test, the actual running distance and 3 m section time around the first base were measured. Base running efficiency was obtained by dividing the base running time by the straight sprint time. T&F athletes showed higher values than baseball players only in the 109.6 m straight sprint time (P < 0.05, ES=1.35). Baseball players were significantly superior to T&F athletes in terms of base running efficiency. As for 3 m section times, baseball players showed significant and higher values. The straight sprint time showed significant and high correlations (r = 0.87, 0.90) between the 109.6 m run and the run home and be-tween the 54.8 m run and the second base run in baseball players, but not in T&F athletes. It was found that superior sprint ability does not always lead to good base running. In base running, it is important to run outward to some extent. In particular, the skill acquisition of base running in 3 m sections around the base will contribute to shortening base running time.
