Reading Framework for the 2009 National Assessment of Educational Progress
This Reading Framework for the 2009 National Assessment of Educational Progress sets forth the design of a test of reading comprehension. The exam requires students to read passages of written English text -- either literary or informational -- and to answer questions about what they have read. In some cases, the questions deal with facts in the text or vocabulary. In other cases, a complete answer requires a clear analysis or coherent argument supported by sound evidence from the text. This is

2014 UMass Amherst Graduate School Commencement
Description not set
The Pompidou Group is made up of thirty-five member states and was formed in 1971 at the initiative of the late French President Georges Pompidou. It provides a "multidisciplinary forum at the wider European level where it is possible for policy-makers, professionals and researchers to discuss and exchange information and ideas on the whole range of drug misuse and trafficking problems". The Pompidou Group has "developed a number of data collection and monitoring methodologies" and "is now movin
Re-searching the Potential of Cultural-Historical Psychology
From its founding as an academic discipline, psychology has been divided in its understanding of itself. The project to create a psychology that unifies experimental, 'physiological' psychology and ethnographic, cultural-historical psychology requires a reconfiguration of the disciplinary landscape of the late 19th century that, from our current perspective, appears inter-disciplinary, including, as it does, scholarship from anthropology, sociology, discourse analysis as well as the neuroscience

Iraq: The Way Out
Jonathan Steele will argue that the occupation has failed, not because of a lack of pre-war planning, but because of a lack of informed political analysis by US decision-makers and the British Foreign Office. They failed to see that Islamists, Sunni and Shia, would fill the post-Saddam vacuum and that most Iraqis would quickly come to resent yet another Western intervention in the Middle East.
In this lecture, Professor Wendy Brown will draw on discourse analysis, psychoanalysis, and feminist theory to examine the desire for walls in the context of eroding sovereignty. Why the current proliferation of nation-state walls, especially amidst widespread proclamations of global connectedness and anticipation of a world without borders? And why barricades built of concrete, steel and barbed wire when threats to the nation today are so often miniaturized, vaporous, clandestine, dispersed or
Essentials of Probability and Statistical Inference IV: Algorithmic and Nonparametric Approaches
Introduces the theory and application of modern, computationally-based methods for exploring and drawing inferences from data.

The Strange Friendship of Pauli and Jung: when physics met psychology
(Editors note: Unfortunately, owing to a technical fault, the last few minutes of the lecture are missing from the podcast) At a key time in his scientific development, Pauli was undergoing analysis by Jung. What can we learn about Pauli and his scientific discoveries from Jung's analysis of his dreams? Arthur I Miller is emeritus professor of history and philosophy of science at University College London.
