Do the data present sufficient evidence to indicate that the average coverage differs from 400 square feet?

Labels on 1-gallon cans of paint usually indicate the drying time and the area that can be covered in one coat. Most brands of paint indicate that, in one coat, a gallon will cover between 250 and 500 square feet, depending on the texture of the surface to be painted. One manufacturer, however, claims that a gallon of its paint will cover 400 square feet of surface area. To test this claim, a random sample of ten 1-gallon cans of white paint were used to paint 10 identical areas using the same kind of equipment. The actual areas (in square feet) covered by these 10 gallons of paint are given here:

Would this scenario impact assessment results and your interpretation of those results?

When children are transferred from one class to another, it can be particularly traumatic for those who are educationally “at risk” and for those with learning and social-emotional disabilities. It may take these students longer than expected to adjust and be capable of participating in a new learning situation. Also, it takes time for teachers to accurately observe and document educational and behavioral concerns. If referral to the IEP team is necessary, it generally takes several months to complete testing and make necessary placement and program changes. Therefore, in cases of students who are moved frequently, the IEP team may not have the opportunity to complete the classification process before the student relocates, which can delay needed remedial interventions. In some cases, parents who disagree with the school’s….

How will this information help in the assessment process? What would you do?

As you begin assessing two students in your class who are suspected of having learning disabilities, you find the parent interviews to be insightful. During the interview with Regina’s parents, you learn that Regina, who is extremely quiet and withdrawn in school, is very talkative and precocious when at home and with neighborhood friends. The interview with Michael’s father was also revealing. Each night and morning, Michael—who seemed to be shy and quiet but otherwise happy—has been having serious bouts of anxiety about going to school. In fact, it has been a struggle for his parents to get him to school each day. How will this information help in the assessment process? What would you do?

Research ADA regulations and then, using a wheelchair, maneuver through a public facility (e.g., an office building, restaurant, shopping mall, theater) to assess whether the facility is handicap accessible according to ADA requirements.

Take an opportunity to experience what an individual with physical disabilities deals with and learn how accessible (or inaccessible) the community is for someone with a physical disability. Research ADA regulations and then, using a wheelchair, maneuver through a public facility (e.g., an office building, restaurant, shopping mall, theater) to assess whether the facility is handicap accessible according to ADA requirements. Reflect on this experience and how teachers can assess their students’ ability to cope with these challenges, advocate for their basic legal rights, and determine what accommodations and modifications their students need.

What is happening now? What would you do next as part of your assessment?

You notice that one of your students, Marcella, does well with class assignments and homework but performs very poorly on tests, particularly timed tests. What would you do?

1. In reviewing student records you see that Peter, a new student in your freshman English class, has always been an average or above-average student. A close inspection of his report cards shows that Peter is failing classes for the first time. Previous teachers indicated that his work-study skills have always been poor, and the narrative portions of his report cards indicate failure to complete long-term assignments, to work independently, to organize work, and to meet deadlines. These work-study skill weaknesses apparently did not significantly affect Peter’s performance in the lower grades. What is happening now? What would you do….

Identify one particular application in Information Technology in which student is interested.

Student will be exploring one Mathematical Topic and its uses in Information Technology. Students are to write a report on their findings. Student can choose one from the following Topic. However, after deciding on the topic to work on, student must meet his/her respective tutor to know which topic was chosen and to get some guidance. The problems your group can choose from are: • Number System • Control Structure algorithm • Truth table • Quantifying a Predicate • One-to-one Function • Recursive formula • Two’s complement The written report must have the following sections: 1. Introduction 2. Proper reference of at least three articles or books 3. Write detail review of those articles or books related to the topic student chooses 4. Identify one particular application in….

In a major Australian city there are four competing newspapers: N1, N2, N3 and N4. A random sample of 354 newspaper readers was asked to report which newspaper they read: N1, N2, N3, or N4. The following frequency distribution table and bar chart summarize the data.
