The development of Understanding Research in Clinical and Counseling Psychology
is the result of our experiences teaching and working with students in
professional psychology over many years. Although virtually all graduate programs
require a course on research, the basis for that requirement is often shrouded
in mystery for many students. Students enter their graduate training with the admirable
ambition of learning skills important for assisting clients to make changes.
The Committee believes that a successful implementation of the revised Framework will provide banks and supervisors with critical experience necessary to address such challenges. The Committee understands that the IRB approach represents a point on the continuum between purely regulatory measures of credit risk and an approach that builds more fully on internal credit risk models. In principle, further movements along that continuum are foreseeable, subject to an ability to address adequately concerns about reliability, comparability, validation, and competitive equity.......
HOW DO YOU DEFINE VALUE? CAN YOU MEASURE IT?
What are your products and services actually worth to
customers? Remarkably few suppliers in business markets
are able to answer those questions. And yet the abihty to
pinpoint the value of a product or service for one's customer
has never been more important.
The purpose of this paper is to help customer survey process stakeholders understand some of the inherent tradeoffs of alternative survey methods. The scope addresses factors including size of the customer population, strengths and weaknesses of alternate...
Figliola and Beasleys Fifth Edition provides revised material for engineering practice with important updates on coverage of probability and statistics and uncertainty analysis, including added material on Monte Carlo simulation, digital image processing, and with revised coverage of signal acquisition, conditioning, and processing.
Siemens Milltronics Process Instruments has a long and successful
history specializing in the manufacture of equipment for industrial
process measurement. Based in Peterborough, Canada, Siemens
Milltronics (PI2) is now a key member of the Sensors and Commu
nication division within the Siemens Industry division, supplying
instrumentation across the globe.
Founded in 1954 by Stuart Daniel, a former employee of Canadian
General Electric, the company began as Milltronics and engineered
electronic ball mill grinding controls for the cement and mining
Thermal noise from optical coatings is a growing area of concern, and overcoming limits
to the sensitivity of high-precision measurements by thermal noise is one of the greatest
challenges faced by experimental physicists.
In this timely book, internationally renowned scientists and engineers examine our
current theoretical and experimental understanding. Beginning with the theory of thermal
noise in mirrors and substrates, subsequent chapters discuss the technology of depositing
coatings and state-of-the-art dielectric coating techniques used in precision measurement.
Every day we make measurements, yet, do we consider the accuracy of that measurement?
If you are a provider of service or product then this publication will help you to take your quality
systems to levels that can save you time and money, improving your methodology and giving you a
clearer understanding on how to measure up.
In many cases measurements are made as a guide for approximating, therefore...

The investigation of the oesophagus has seen major advanciens thes econd half of
the 20th Century as technology has developed and our understanding of the
physiology and pathophysiology of oesophageal diseases has increased. In thew ake
of these changes, research and development of oesophageal function tests have
lead to a newbr eed of specialists in medicine to provide for the needs of the clinician
in diagnosis and management of patients with oesophageal diseases.
There are several tasks where is preferable not responding than responding incorrectly. This idea is not new, but despite several previous attempts there isn’t a commonly accepted measure to assess non-response. We study here an extension of accuracy measure with this feature and a very easy to understand interpretation. The measure proposed (c@1) has a good balance of discrimination power, stability and sensitivity properties.
The construct of adaptive behavior: Its conceptualization, measurement, and use in the field of intellectual disability updates the current conceptualization, measurement, and use of the adaptive behavior construct.
After studying this chapter you will be able to: Understand the concept of measurement, understand the four levels of scales and their typical usage, explore the concepts of reliability and validity, become familiar with the concept of scaling, learn about the various types of attitude scales,...

Gemini is a natural language (NL) understanding system developed for spoken language applications. This paper describes the details of the system, and includes relevant measurements of size, efficiency, and performance of each of its components. In designing any NL understanding system, there is a tension between robustness and correctness.
Chapter 6 - Measuring domestic output and the price level. After studying this chapter you will be able to understand: What gross domestic product (GDP) is and what it measures, the expenditure approach to measuring gross domestic product (GDP), the income approach to measuring gross domestic product (GDP), the distinction between nominal GDP and real GDP, what the Consumer Price Index (CPI) is and how it is constructed, the shortcomings of GDP as a measure of a country’s well-being.
Chapter 8 - Income distribution. In this chapter you will: Learn about the distribution of income among Canadian households, how this distribution is measured, and the factors underlying the distribution; consider the causes of poverty and the way poverty is measured; analyze the effectiveness of government intervention to change the distribution of income.
In this chapter you will: Learn about Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and the two approaches to calculating it, consider real GDP and per capita GDP and their possible uses and limitations when comparing living standards in different years or different countries, analyze other economic measures developed from the national income accounts.
Chapter 10 - Inflation and unemployment. In this chapter you will learn about inflation, how it is measured, and its effect on nominal and real incomes. This chapter also examine the official unemployment rate, the different types of unemployment, and the definition of full employment.
