ALPS Competency in Practice Assessment (CIPA) Tool
One of the key aims of ALPS is to improve the assessment of competence in practice across 16 professions, increasing the confidence of new graduates and their employers. The CIPA tool has been developed to establish measures of new graduate confidence in their ability across a number of areas of professional competence. Initially it is being piloted as a self-rating tool with new graduates with the intention of extending its use by employers of new graduates. The tool offers a way of establishin
Carrots are like radishes because the carrot and roots are under the soil while the green leaves gather sunlight above the soil. If you experiment with sections of the carrot or radish, you will see that cutting just the leaves and replanting them will cause the leaves to wilt and die in a few days. Sections of the carrot or radish will thrive in soil.
Cercariae of Digenetic Trematodes: Use In Laboratory Investigations
In the complex life cycle of a digenetic trematode, the cercaria larva is shed from a snail intermediate host and represents a short-lived, aquatic transfer stage to the next host. Due to its temporary free-living existence, the cercarial stage is ideal for a number of investigative projects. Two general experiments will be conducted with the unusually large cercaria of Proterometra macrostoma. Students assess the effect of: (1) different light wavelengths on the vertical swimming burst distance

Bulbs and Roots: Radishes
Radishes have roots. These roots help the radishes absorb nutrients and water from the soil. The radish and root are buried underneath the soil. The green leaves are above soil to gather sunlight for the plant.

Hurricane Keith from TRMM: October 2, 2000
3-D view of Hurricane Keith off Honduras from the TRMM satellite. Isosurfaces are generated from TRMM PR and TMI data. Cloud height is generated from the TRMM IR data. Rain rate isosurfaces are 1 inch-hr (green) and 2 inches-hr (red).
Many red worms
Red worms live in soil. They eat decaying plant matter and move using the segments in their bodies.
Helpful Hints for Field Sketching

Jacquin Niles, Professor of Biological Engineering, with a main focus on Malaria research presents his work. Malaria, an asexual parasite infecting disease usually transferred by insects and animals, contributes a high mortality rate in Africa and South Asia especially within children. Based on this disease, Niles work gives precedence to finding out how Malaria works using RNA aptamers, equalized heme, and cellular networks.
