1.5.2 Validation and ‘so what’

It's usually not enough to find something; initial conclusions usually require a validation step, a chance to expose them to falsification or corroboration. For example, the conventional validation step for an implementation is an evaluation. The conventional validation step for a novel solution is a demonstration of concept, or a performance test.

Good dissertations are distinguished by ‘asking the next question’, i.e. by not being satisfied with the first result, but invest

3.3 Dams

To economize on constructional materials and costs, it is desirable to build a dam at a narrow part of a valley so that the dam can be kept as short as possible. The quantity of constructional materials needed to build dams, and their cost, can be enormous. The Aswan High Dam, built during the 1960s, cost £400 million for a 1.2 km dam. Though shorter than the Aswan High Dam, the longest dam in Britain, the Kielder Dam in Northumberland (Author(s): The Open University

9.3 Differential sensitivity

Absolute thresholds represent only one type of threshold; one could also ask whether the subject can detect a difference between two stimuli. The threshold for detection of difference is called a difference threshold or difference limen (DL). The difference threshold is a measure of the smallest detectable difference between two stimuli. Basically it answers the psychophysical question: ‘How different must two stimuli (e.g. two weights, two colours, two sounds) b

1.3.1 Systems thinking and concept

Much can be said about systems thinking. However it is worth reiterating some key points here as they are central to understanding the purpose of the diagrams discussed later in this section.

The word system is one that is in regular everyday use. People talk, for example, about ‘the social security system’ and the ‘telephone system’. Gamblers boast about ‘having a system’ for winning at roulette. Young people talk about being ‘against the system’.

2.4.3 abelling

The term ‘informal carer’ is a label. It was coined to describe people who take on unpaid responsibility for the welfare of another person. It is a term which has meaning only when the public world of care provision comes into contact with the private world of the family where caring is a day-to-day, unremarked-upon activity, like reminding a young child to clean her teeth. Labelling yourself as an informal carer requires a major shift in the way you see yourself, a shift neither Arthur n
