4 Structure of the assessment courses

This key skills assessment course does not have specific questions with word limits and no statements indicating you include, say, an essay or a report. Instead, as you tackle the course you need to ask yourself ‘Which pieces of work show my skills and capabilities to best advantage?’ When you have identified and selected evidence of your skills, you must then relate this evidence directly to the criteria.

Elizabeth Norton, Ph.D.: Using simultaneous EEG-fMRI to characterize human face processing in space
A key feature of the human social brain is its specialized ability to process faces. EEG and fMRI brain imaging studies have yielded conflicting results about whether the brain's response to faces is qualitatively or quantitatively different in individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs). Here, I present data from a study using simultaneous EEG-fMRI to relate the EEG/ERP time course of face processing to the associated fMRI activation in adults with and without ASD. This approach is novel

Achieving Affective Impact: Visual Emotive Communication in Lifelike Pedagogical Agents
Lifelike animated agents for knowledge-based learning environments can provide timely, customized advice to support learnersâ problem-solving activities. By drawing on a rich repertoire of emotive behaviors to exhibit contextually appropriate facial expressions and emotive gestures, these agents could exploit the visual channel to more effectively communicate with learners. To address these issues, this article proposes the emotive-kinesthetic behavior sequencing framework for dynamically seque

Towards an Open Grid Marketplace Framework for Resources Trade
A challenge of Grid computing is to provide automated support for the creation and exploitation of virtual organisations (VOs), involving individuals and different autonomous organizations, to which resources are pooled from potentially diverse origins. In the context of the presented work, virtual organizations trade grid resources and services according to economic models in electronic marketplaces. Thus in this paper we propose GRIMP (Grid Marketplace), a generic framework that provides servi

An Approach to Analyzing the Role and Structure of Reflective Dialogue
Several intelligent tutoring systems contain modules that support reflection after practice exercises. However, there is very little research on reflective dialogue and its relation to dialogue during problem solving that can guide this effort. The approach to analyzing educational dialogue described in this paper was developed to address this problem. Using statistical and machine learning methods, we compared the frequency and structure of speech acts by avionics students and experts during pr
