Nematodes as Bio-indicator of Soil Ecosystem david parmenter key performance indicators developing implementing and using winning kpis
Nematodes, as one component of the soil ecosystem, interact with biotic and abiotic factors, as they live in capillary water; their permeable cuticle helps in maintaining direct contact with their micro-environment and any minor change in the environment affect them directly, which can be easily studied by their assemblages using various indices. They are classified on the basis of their feeding behaviour, which helps them to serve as good indicators of soil ecosystem. They also occupy a key position in the soil food webs and may help in regulating it. In the present work, nematodes have been studied under different field stresses involving agro-ecosystems to coal mines and are found to be perfect indicators of soil as reflected by use of faunal profiles and representative indices.

A forward-thinking look at performance assessment in the 21st century Next Generation Assessment: Moving Beyond the Bubble Test to Support 21st Century Learning provides needed answers to the nation's growing concerns about educational testing in America. Drawing on research and the experiences of leading states and countries, this new book examines how performance assessments can offer a feasible alternative to current high stakes tests. As parents, educators, and policymakers have increasingly criticized the effects of the teaching to the test mandate from the No Child Left Behind Act, the need for this resource has never been more critical. This summary volume to Beyond the Bubble Test speaks to the nationwide unease about current tests' focus on low-level skills, like recalling and restating facts, rather than higher-order skills such as problem-solving, analyzing, and synthesizing information. It illustrates how schools can use authentic assessments to improve teaching and learning as they involve students in conducting research, designing investigations, developing products and solutions, using technology, and communicating their ideas in many forms. This important book: Serves as a must-have resource for those interested in the most current research about how to create valid and reliable performance assessments Explains how educators can improve practice by developing, using, and scoring performance assessments Helps policymakers and educators accurately assess the benefits and possibilities of adopting performance assessments nationally If you're an educator, researcher, graduate student, district administrator, or education policy specialist, Next Generation Assessment is an indispensable resource you'll turn to again and again.

Public Service Performance and Political Elite Career Advancement david parmenter key performance indicators developing implementing and using winning kpis
Public performance-accountability nexus is a hot topic in recent research, but we know little about its antecedents and consequences in developing countries and transition economies. Are top-down appointed political elites taken accountable for public service performance in authoritarian nations like China? The question is theoretically and empirically examined in the book. I argue that government cadres are appropriately appraised and promoted even with the lame democracy. Using a novel dataset and event history analysis method, I test the performance-based political promotion tournament theory and its contingent features. I find that career advancement of provincial leading officials is positively influenced by public service performance but not by economic performance. The effect is stronger for Party secretaries than governors, for central connected officials than local officials, for younger than older, and for short tenure in office than long serving. The performance-promotion nexus in relatively weak and contingent on contextual attributes, suggesting performance-based reform should be deepened to make local agents accountable for public service delivery and responsiveness.

Intelligent Electromechanical CVT Ratio Controller david parmenter key performance indicators developing implementing and using winning kpis
Good ride performance is one of the most important key attribute of a passenger vehicle. One of the methods to achieve this is by using continuously variable transmission (CVT). This is because a CVT has the capability of providing an almost infinite ratio within its limits smoothly and continuously. In this thesis, the work focuses on developing an intelligent control system that will provide the appropriate CVT ratio based on a vehicle maximum power driving strategy. This will provide maximum acceleration performance at all time during driving. On-line values of the engine speed and throttle opening are used as inputs to the developed intelligent controller, which then will provide the appropriate required CVT ratio for the vehicle to perform accordingly. An electromechanical dual acting pulley CVT designed (EMDAP-CVT)and developed by the Drivetrain Research Group (DRG) UTM, is used in this work. EMDAP-CVT with zero belt misalignment give a great performance and longer belt life. Adaptive artificial neural network (AANN) is then applied as intelligent controller and the results show that the intelligent controller using AANN performs satisfactorily.

Performance Evaluation of Data Services in Mobile WiMAX Networks david parmenter key performance indicators developing implementing and using winning kpis
Due to the lack of a commonly adopted practice in the WiMAX network performance evaluation, one faces a multitude of ad-hoc techniques that are different from market to market and do not guarantee optimality of the process. In addition, all of the WiMAX defined QoS parameters, that help networks in implementing different radio resource assignment strategies and management of QoS classes, are implemented in the MAC layer. And, the algorithms that manage the radio resources are not subject of the standard. Therefore, even though the air interface parameters are the same across various networks, practical implementations may have different properties leading to a change in user experience between different networks. This book presents a methodology for the performance evaluation of data services in mobile WiMAX networks. The methodology is a five step repeatable process developed by analyzing actual measurements collected through drive test. A set of KPIs is developed and used to assess the performance of fundamental aspects of the network. The methodology provides proper course of action for network operators so they can adjust network parameters to improve the QoS of their networks.
