Graph Colouring and Clustering Heuristic Approach for Minimizing Examination Duration: A Case Study
Norwahida Syazwani Othman,Faizuniza Mashhod
IBIMA Business Review , 2012,
Abstract: Exam timetable is difficult to be done manually due to several factors such as dual academic calendar, larger student enrolments, constraints among invigilators and limitations of resources. At tertiary education, preparing exam timetable is very critical in order to ensure that all students are able to sit for the exam of every subject that they have registered without any clashing and only sit for one exam at one time. The lecturers who are also the invigilators as well need to be considered as one of the elements in the development of exam timetable as they are required to be in one venue at one time. Therefore, a good time table needs to ensure that the students and invigilators are able to commit their roles accordingly during the exam period. But the main problem is the duration of the exam which will be extended to fulfil all the requirements. This study presents a solution method intended for reducing exam duration in Centre for Foundation Studies and Extension Education (FOSEE), Multimedia University (MMU), Malaysia. The method of solution is using heuristic approaches that include graph colouring, clustering and sequential heuristic. The discussions were focused on constraints among invigilators and the approach is tested on real-world exam timetabling problems.
Novel Solution Based on Face Recognition to Address Identity Theft and Cheating in Online Examination Systems  [PDF]
Ayham Fayyoumi, Anis Zarrad
Advances in Internet of Things (AIT) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ait.2014.42002
The main objective of this research is to provide a solution for online exam systems by using face recognition to authenticate learners for attending an online exam. More importantly, the system continuously (with short time intervals), checks for learner identity during the whole exam period to ensure that the learner who started the exam is the same one who continued until the end and prevent the possibility of cheating by looking at adjacent PC or reading from an external paper. The system will issue an early warning to the learners if suspicious behavior has been noticed by the system. The proposed system has been presented to eight e-learning instructors and experts in addition to 32 students to gather feedback and to study the impact and the benefit of such system in e-learning environment.

Abstract: A lo largo de los 10 últimos a os hemos trabajado en problemas de organización académica de grandes dimensiones. En problemas universitarios hemos tratado la confección de calendarios de exámenes, la asignación de estudiantes a grupos vinculada al problema de la automatrícula y también la confección de horarios. Todos estos problemas son difíciles (NP-hard) por lo que en todos los casos los algoritmos de resolución implementados han sido complejos y basados en procedimientos adaptados a cada problema. Sin embargo, en todos ellos el método de Búsqueda Tabú (Tabu Search) ha constituído el elemento esencial en la obtención de buenas soluciones. En el presente trabajo exponemos algunas ense anzas de estas experiencias. Tanto aquellos elementos que se han mostrado útiles en el conjunto de los problemas como los que han mostrado una validez diferente en los diversos casos planteados. Asimismo se examinan diferentes posibilidades de uso de los elementos del Tabú y se exponen conclusiones.

Rect@ , 1999,
Abstract: El problema de confeccionar un horario que permita atender todos los requerimientos docentes con los medios materiales de los que se dispone es un problema al que se enfrentan todos los administradores de los centros universitarios cada a o. Un equipo de la Universitat de València ha desarrollado un sistema informático para confeccionar horarios de universidad, preparado para funcionar en ordenadores personales. El núcleo del sistema lo forman un conjunto de algoritmos basados en técnicas metaheurísticas que intentan asignar a cada lección un período temporal y una aula de manera que se consiga un buen valor para una función objetivo. Dicha función ha sido definida mediante criterios seleccionados por el usuario entre una amplia gama formada por los que son habituales en las universidades espa olas. El interfase de comunicación usuario-programa es de fácil manejo, funciona en Windows y permite al usuario introducir los datos, elegir los criterios que considera importantes para su horario y obtener las soluciones en un formato sencillo que pueda ser interpretado por la gran cantidad de personas implicadas en el proceso.

Abstract: in order to improve the program of surgeon of the instituto de ciencias biomédicas, universidad autónoma de ciudad juárez (uacj) the graduate evaluating procedure was modified. three processes were selected for evaluation by the medical surgeon program during the period 2006-2008 to determine the relevance, effectiveness and efficiency of its graduates, which are: the overall grade point average (gpa) and the professional medical exam (pme) taken with real patients at a hospital, evaluated by the uacj, and the general exam for graduates (geg), evaluated by the national center for the evaluation of higher education (ceneval). the evaluation processes were used in order to get a better graduate profile. correlation was obtained between the gpa and the pme but not with the geg, which had a visible percentage difference with respect to the other two processes. while the pme reflected the knowledge gained throughout the program (pme vs. gpa), the geg showed a considerable difference with respect to the other two, probably, because the different disciplines in the program are evaluated asymmetrically by the uacj and ceneval.

Abstract: introduction: caloric tests play a very important role in a patient's vestibular exam. but these exams, along with the new test brought about by both technology and computing in medicine, have turned these examinations into very long and expensive procedures. taking all this into account, it seems suitable the realization of a preliminary vestibular exam performed in the doctor's consultation office. this will allow a diagnostic guideline with solid foundations. aim: to describe, interpret, and carry out a critical analysis of the so called "10 minute vestibular examination of the dizzy patient" in order to get to some conclusions about sensitivity and specificity of this short exam. material and method: using the available bibliography, particularly medical studies based on evidence, the following test are described, interpreted and analyzed : spontaneous nystagmus, gaze nystagmus, smooth pursuit, saccades, halmagyi test, head shake test, , dynamic visual acuity test, fixation suppression test, dix-hallpike maneuver, aural pressure/sound test, cerebellar limbs, somato-sensation test, romberg test, and gait test. since most of these tests are performed in the classic vestibular examination, only non-routine ones are analyzed and discussed. results: most analyzed test show low sensitivity, under 50%%, but good specificity. with some basic training they are easy to carry out, and they require a short length of time, but over 10 minutes. discussion: taking into consideration the long time the specialist needs for a vestibular examination, a basic vestibular study is highly necessary to guide the dizzy patient's clinical investigation. the tests suggested in this examination have a low sensitivity individually considered. but carrying out all of these together, added to a solid anamnesis with a pre-established structured questionnaire, gives the study strength and reliability. conclusion: the abbreviated vestibular examination is a good study. although the various tests

Abstract: Human rights and patent rights are, to a large extent, fields of law that have evolved independently. On the one hand, patent rights consist of statutorily recognized rights, which provide incentives for the participation of the private sector in certain fields and seek to contribute to technological development. Patents are near monopoly rights. This monopoly is offered by society in return for certain concessions such as information disclosure and a limited duration of the rights granted. On the other hand, human rights are fundamental rights, which are recognized by the state but are inherent rights linked to human dignity. Different kinds of links between patent rights and human rights can be identified.

Open Journal of Nursing (OJN) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ojn.2015.53026
Abstract: Using Seidman’s retention formula as a theoretical foundation, this study investigated historical data from a Bachelor of Science (BSN) nursing program to determine whether the admission variables of the preprogram grade point averages (GPA), American College Testing (ACT) scores, anatomy and physiology course grades, and/or the Health Education System Inc. (HESI) Exit Exam scores could predict completing the nursing program, as well as passing the NCLEX-RN. A significant relationship (p < 0.01) was identified between the preprogram GPA, ACT scores, anatomy grades, and the HESI Exit Exam scores with the completion of the BSN program and passing the NCLEX-RN.
