Problematiza??o das dificuldades de aprendizagem nas necessidades educativas especiais
Correia,Luís de Miranda;
Análise Psicológica , 2004,
Abstract: the portuguese legislation on special education does not consider learning disabilities as a category of the special educational needs spectrum. as such, students with learning disabilities are not entitled to receive specialized services needed to answer to their special needs. this article attempts to demonstrate that learning disabilities is a category of the special educational needs spectrum; therefore, the students with learning disabilities should receive special educational services when recommended in their individualized educational programs (iep).
Para uma defini??o portuguesa de dificuldades de aprendizagem específicas
Correia, Luís de Miranda;
Revista Brasileira de Educa??o Especial , 2007, DOI: 10.1590/S1413-65382007000200002
Abstract: we know today that there is a group of children whose neurological disorders interfere with their way of processing information that, in many instances, will require the services and support of special education. these kinds of disorders usually affect the student's ability to read, write or do math calculations, or even affect the acquisition of social skills; the students who present them are generally called students with specific learning disabilities (sld). however, in portugal this seems not to be the case. by not considering sld an area of disability that qualifies for special services, the ministry of education is limiting the access of students who present them to sound educational programs, thus preventing them from learning effectively in accordance to their characteristics and needs. with this in mind, this article attempts to conceptualize a portuguese definition of sld that could lead to an understanding of such a misguided issue and, thus, contribute to the elaboration of effective educational responses for students who present sld.

Abstract: Noise in the local transition function is compared to fluctuations in the updating times of the cells. Obtained results are shown to be quite different in both cases. In this extended abstract we briefly explain the problem and present results obtained and comment them.
DEVELOP-FPS: a First Person Shooter Development Tool for Rule-based Scripts
Bruno Correia,Paulo Urbano,Luís Muniz
International Journal of Interactive Multimedia and Artificial Intelligence , 2012,
Abstract: We present DEVELOP-FPS, a software tool specially designed for the development of First Person Shooter (FPS) players controlled by Rule Based Scripts. DEVELOP-FPS may be used by FPS developers to create, debug, maintain and compare rule base player behaviours, providing a set of useful functionalities: i) for an easy preparation of the right scenarios for game debugging and testing; ii) for controlling the game execution: users can stop and resume the game execution at any instant, monitoring and controlling every player in the game, monitoring the state of each player, their rule base activation, being able to issue commands to control their behaviour; and iii) to automatically run a certain number of game executions and collect data in order to evaluate and compare the players performance along a sufficient number of similar experiments.
E-learning: perspectiva histórica de um processo em curso
Luís Grosso Correia,Bruno Pinheiro
Revista da Faculdade de Letras : Historia , 2012,
Abstract: This article aims to sketch a diachronic analysis of a centenary process that must not be reduced to its micro-computerized version: the e-learning. If its historical process was started by the emissions supported by radio-broadcasters, was reinforced during World War II due to the use of educational films applied to the Army training and was affirmed by the mass use of multimedia micro-computers connected to telematic networks in the late twentieth century, then it is relevant to know the evolution of the theoretical, technological and pedagogical means used in the e-learning process. This historical approach intends also to understand the role played by the the nature, mission and methods of the distance education and educational technology in the shaping process of the e-learning’s educational rationale.

Abstract: bacteria of the burkholderia cepacia complex (bcc), a group of nine related species, are opportunistic pathogens in cystic fibrosis (cf) patients, associated with a poor prognosis and patient-to-patient transmissibility. the pulmonary deterioration in bcc-colonised/infected patients has a heterogeneous pattern leading, sometimes, to a fulminant development - the cepaciasyndrome. to evaluate the relationship between colonisation/infection by the different bcc species and the clinical course, the authors carried out a retrospective study of 31 cf patients with bcc bacteria isolations followed at hospital de santa maria from january 1995 to march 2006. patients were categorised into two groups: group i, with intermittent isolations and group ii with chronic isolations. the prevalence of bcc species was as follows: b. cepacia 57%, b. cenocepacia 43%, b. multivorans 7%, b. stabilis 13%. three of the patients died of cepacia syndrome. the species b. cepacia and b. stabilis, usually less frequent in cf populations of europe and america, were isolated in a considerable percentage of the patients examined. no correlation could be established between the species and the clinical outcome. deteriorated but not stable patients from group ii, whose lung function and pulmonary exacerbationcaused hospitalisation could be retrospectively analysed, exhibited significant differences in the number of hospitalisations and pulmonary function (fev1) in the year prior to and the years following bcc isolation. based on the available data, it is not currently possible to outline preventive measures through the molecular characterisation of bcc isolates, reinforcing the notion that the recommended control measures must be followed.
à conquista de um sistema forte de gest?o de recursos humanos
Bentes,Luísa; Correia,Anabela; Gomes,Jorge F.S.;
Economia Global e Gest?o , 2009,
Abstract: strategic human resources management has highlighted the ways in which the hr system is critical to organizational performance. this relationship has being at the centre of some recent theoretical developments in the hrm literature, with moderate empirical support from several studies. notwithstanding such support, there is still a significant lack of knowledge with regards to how such association works. in order to clarify the problem, bowen and ostroff (2004) have put forward a model in which the hr system/organizational performance relationship is mediated by the psychological interpretation that people construct of their surrounding environments (called situation strength). these authors have also introduced the notion of hr system strength, to designate the attributes which make the hr system more efficient in communicating desired and appropriate messages across the organization. reaching organizational goals is therefore dependent on the hr aptitude to influence people?s perceptions and behaviors. based on bowen and ostroff?s (2004) propositions, the current text offers an extension of their model, incorporating culture and leadership as two additional organizational influence factors. the extended model intents to expand on existing knowledge and, at the same time, it describes the research project in which this text?s authors are presently involved.
Desenvolvimento e valida??o da Escala de Auto-Eficácia para Utilizadores de Cadeira de Rodas
Martins,Anabela Correia; Ribeiro,José Luís Pais;
Análise Psicológica , 2008,
Abstract: studies showed that a person’s confidence in being able to perform a behaviour (self-efficacy) is a good predictor of social participation. as no specifically instrument designed to measure wheelchair users perception of self-efficacy existed, we developed the wheelchair-related self-efficacy scale and tested its psychometric properties. an extensive literature review was conducted to identify general and specific self-efficacy outcome measures. the instrument was developed and subjected to wheelchair users to the initial validation and reliability tests. analyses included descriptive statistics, factor analysis and cronbach’s alpha. questionnaires for 73 respondents (46.6% female; mean [sd] age, 39 [14.5] years; and mean [sd] number of years since adoption of the wheelchair, 12 [7.5] years) were analyzed. using factor analysis with varimax rotation, three subscales explained 58.6% of the variance in our 13-item questionnaire. the domains reflecting three aspects of wheelchair-related self-efficacy: symptoms management, finding strategies and confidence in one’s own abilities. cronbach’s alpha of the entire instrument was 0.81, and for the three individual scales scores were 0.80, 0.70 and 0.77, respectively. correlations were moderate-to-high. the psychometric properties of the wheelchair-related self-efficacy scale seem to be highly acceptable. further validation of its use across different cultural settings is required.
Proteína C-reativa e prognóstico em síndromes coronarianas agudas: revis?o sistemática e metanálise
Correia, Luís C. L.;Esteves, J Péricles;
Arquivos Brasileiros de Cardiologia , 2011, DOI: 10.1590/S0066-782X2011005000032
Abstract: despite the association between high-sensitivity c-reactive protein (crp) and recurrent events in non-st elevation acute coronary syndromes (acs), routine determination of this marker has not been recommended. in order to verify whether the current scientific evidence justifies the inclusion of crp for risk stratification at hospital admission of patients with acs, we carried out a systematic review and meta-analysis of the studies indexed in medline, scielo or lilacs, with the following inclusion criteria: prospective cohort design and assessment of the prognostic value of cpr, as measured using a high-sensitivity method at the moment of hospital admission of patients with acs. nineteen studies met the inclusion criteria. in relation to the long-term follow-up, there was a consistent association between crp and cardiovascular events, with an overall odds ratio (or) of 4.6 (95% ci = 2.3 - 7.6) and overall multivariate or of 2.5 (95% ci = 1.8-3.4). as for the short-term, nine studies were positive and six were negative, with an overall or of 1.65 (95% ci = 1.2-2.3). the overall multivariate or was not obtained for the short-term follow-up, because this measurement was described only in three heterogeneous studies. only two short-term studies analyzed the incremental predictive value of crp in relation to multivariate models, with contradicting results. in conclusion, the small number of assessments of the incremental value of crp, in conjunction with controversial results regarding the independent predictive value of crp for short-term events does not support the recommendation of the routine use of crp for risk stratification at admission of patients with acs.
