The Social Sciences , 2013,
Abstract: The aim of this study is to investigate factors, which promote the enjoyment of learning in high school students. The participants consisted of 331 grad 10-12 students, ranging in age from 16-18 from government and private high schools and colleges in the second semester of academic year 2007, obtained using the multi-stage random sampling technique. The research instrument used was a rating scale Questionnaire, with α-coefficient = 0.97. The data analysis employed descriptive statistics and CFA. The result of this study revealed that the weights of the nine factors involved in the promotion of enjoyment of learning ranged from 0.61-0.90 at the 0.01 level of significance. The component weights were in the following order from the highest to the lowest weight: school management, instructional management, teacher’s characteristics, students’ support, student, living with others, community, family and friends with component weights of 0.90, 0.89, 0.87, 0.84, 0.78, 0.76, 0.68, 0.67 and 0.61, respectively. The most significant component was school management in term of importance. There was the goodness of fit index between the model and the empirical data with Chi-square (χ2) of 2546.97, p = 0.66 at an degree of freedom (df) of 2578, GFI = 0.83, AGFI = 0.75, CFI = 1.00, SRMR = 0.061, SMSEA = 0.00 showing that the model had a construct validity.

Abstract: The research aimed to develop the evaluation model on learning management of foreign language teachers in the world class standard primary schools by using research and development process. The research was divided into 4 stages: (1) analyzed and synthesized the concept of learning management of foreign language teachers in the world class standard primary schools (2) constructed an evaluation model (3) trialed the evaluation model and (4) evaluated the evaluation model. The instruments used in this research consisted of an interview form, observation forms, evaluation forms and a questionnaire. The qualitative data were analyzed by contents analysis. The quantitative data were analyzed through basic statistics comprising percentage, mean, and standard deviation. The Wilcoxon Matched Pairs Signed Ranks Test and The Mann-Whitney U-Test were employed for testing hypotheses. The results of the study were as follows: 1) The concept of learning management of foreign language in the world class standard primary schools followed the principles of the Basic Education Core Curriculum B.E 2551. It was integrated by the world class curriculum to accelerate the potential of learners to the citizenship of the world; however, most WCS have not had the evaluation model on learning management. 2) The evaluation model on learning management of foreign language teachers in the world class standard primary schools consisted of 4 components: (1) the goal of evaluation (2) the objects of evaluation (3) the method of evaluation, and (4) the criteria of evaluation. 3) The discriminant validity of the evaluation model was statistically significant at .01 level. This improved the development of teachers on learning management which indicated that the mean score of the second evaluation was higher than the first evaluation with statistically significant at .01 level. 4) The evaluation model on learning management of foreign language teachers in the world class standard primary schools had overall standards for utility, feasibility propriety and accuracy at the high level. Classified by four aspects, it was found at the highest level in utility and accuracy, while other aspects were at a high level.

Songsak Chumpawadee
Pakistan Journal of Nutrition , 2009,
Abstract: Degradation characteristics of three by-product, were studied using the nylon bag technique. Nylon bags technique were conducted in two rumen fistulated Brahman-Thai native crossbred steers. They were offered ad libitum rice straw and received concentrate at 0.5% BW. Nylon bags containing 3.0 g of each by-product were immersed in duplicate at each time point in the ventral rumen of each steer for 3, 6, 12, 24, 48 and 72 h. The data were fitted to the equation P = a+b (1-e-ct) and effective degradability were calculated using a theoretical rumen out flow rate of k = 0.05/h. The treatments were 1) tomato pomace, 2) soybean hull and 3) peanut pod assigned according to a completely randomize design with four replication. The results indicate that the rapidly soluble fraction (a), potentially degradable fraction (b), degradation rate (c) and potential degradation (a+b) of DM, OM and CP were different among treatments (p<0.01). The effective degradability of DM, OM and CP are the same between soybean hull and peanut pot, but differences with tomato pomace. This data is necessary to screen by-product for nutritive value before using them in ruminant production systems.

Pakistan Journal of Nutrition , 2009,
Abstract: The objective of this study was to nutrient enriched of cassava starch industry by-product using fermentation method. The experimental design was 2 x 3 factorial in Completely Randomized Design (CRD). The factor A was kind of cassava starch industry by-product (cassava pulp and cassava peel) and combine with factor B (unfermented, naturally fermented and rumen microorganism fermented). The results revealed that the interaction between cassava starch industry by-product and fermentation method were shown in dry matter and crude fiber content. Crude fiber content was decreased (p<0.01) with naturally fermented and rumen microorganism fermented. Crude protein content was increased (p<0.01) with naturally fermented and rumen microorganism fermented. However, rumen microorganism fermented was highest true protein content and lowest NPN content (p<0.01). Nitrogen free extract was reverse affect by crude protein content. Base on this study nutrient enrichment of cassava starch industry by product can do by fermentation method, especially rumen microorganism fermented. The rumen microorganism fermented cassava starch industry by product is potentially useful feed material for mono gastric feeding.
Effect of Non Forage High Fibrous Feedstuffs as Fiber Sources in Total Mixed Ration on Gas Production Characteristics and in vitro Fermentation
Songsak Chumpawadee,Opart Pimpa
Pakistan Journal of Nutrition , 2008,
Abstract: The objective of this study was to determine the effect of non forage high fibrous feedstuffs as fiber sources in a total mixed ration on gas production characteristics and in vitro fermentation using an in vitro gas production technique. The experiment was designed in CRD with five replicates per treatment. The fiber sources in the total mixed ration were rice straw (rt-TMR), tomato pomace (tp-TMR), palm meal (pm-TMR), dried brewer gain (db-TMR) and soybean hulls (sh-TMR). The results showed that kinetic gas production, in vitro dry matter digestibility and in vitro organic matter digestibility, were significantly different among treatments (p<0.05). The soybean hulls as a fiber source in the total mixed ration gave the highest IVDMD, IVOMD and gas production parameter. In vitro fermentation end-products consisting of NH3-N, TVFA and pH were significantly different among the treatments (p<0.05); however, the pH values were relatively stable at 7.01-7.16. All treatment means were within the normal range. NH3-N concentration was in the optimal range for rumen ecology microbial activity. Future research should investigate the impact of the ability of non forage high fibrous feed to replace forage in intact animal.
Markov branching in the vertex splitting model
Sigurdur Orn Stefansson
Mathematics , 2011, DOI: 10.1088/1742-5468/2012/04/P04018
Abstract: We study a special case of the vertex splitting model which is a recent model of randomly growing trees. For any finite maximum vertex degree $D$, we find a one parameter model, with parameter $\alpha \in [0,1]$ which has a so--called Markov branching property. When $D=\infty$ we find a two parameter model with an additional parameter $\gamma \in [0,1]$ which also has this feature. In the case $D = 3$, the model bears resemblance to Ford's $\alpha$--model of phylogenetic trees and when $D=\infty$ it is similar to its generalization, the $\alpha\gamma$--model. For $\alpha = 0$, the model reduces to the well known model of preferential attachment. In the case $\alpha > 0$, we prove convergence of the finite volume probability measures, generated by the growth rules, to a measure on infinite trees which is concentrated on the set of trees with a single spine. We show that the annealed Hausdorff dimension with respect to the infinite volume measure is $1/\alpha$. When $\gamma = 0$ the model reduces to a model of growing caterpillar graphs in which case we prove that the Hausdorff dimension is almost surely $1/\alpha$ and that the spectral dimension is almost surely $2/(1+\alpha)$. We comment briefly on the distribution of vertex degrees and correlations between degrees of neighbouring vertices.
The infinite volume limit of Ford's alpha model
Sigurdur Orn Stefansson
Mathematics , 2009,
Abstract: We prove the existence of a limit of the finite volume probability measures generated by tree growth rules in Ford's alpha model of phylogenetic trees. The limiting measure is shown to be concentrated on the set of trees consisting of exactly one infinite spine with finite, identically and independently distributed outgrowths.
A Validation Study of the National Assessment Instruments for Young English Language Learners in Norway and Slovenia
Karmen Pi?orn,Eli Moe
CEPS Journal : Center for Educational Policy Studies Journal , 2012,
Abstract: This article is a validation study of two national large-scale tests that measure the language proficiency of 11/12 year-old English learners in Norway and Slovenia. Following the example of Alderson and Banerjee (2008), the authors of the article have employed the EALTA guidelines for good practice to validate the tests, and to formulate major recommendations for improvement of both assessment instruments, where feasible (Alderson & Banerjee, 2008). The results of the validation study show that both national tests in English seem to fulfil most of the EALTA guidelines for good practice, although a few issues related to the test construct and test design procedures need to be re-assessed, and some changes may be required.
Reading Ability, Reading Fluency and Orthographic Skills: The Case of L1 Slovene English as a Foreign Language Students
Florina Erbeli,Karmen Pi?orn
CEPS Journal : Center for Educational Policy Studies Journal , 2012,
Abstract: This study examined the difference between less-skilled and skilled L1Slovene English as foreign language (EFL) students in foreign language(L2) fluency and L2 orthographic skills; 93 less-skilled Grade 7 L1 Slovene students and 102 skilled Grade 7 L1 Slovene students participated in the study. The results showed that skilled readers performed better in all fluency and orthographic skills tasks, as the differences between groups were statistically significant. The correlations among all variables showed that L2 fluency and L2 orthographic skills are positively interrelated among both groups, suggesting that higher L2 fluency scores are associated with higher L2 orthography scores. This outcome implies that less-skilled readersneed to be greatly exposed to L2 language and be ensured necessaryopportunities in- or outside the classroom in L2 learning.
