Paper explores the place of assessment in a culturally define paradigm of inclusive education.

Nunavut is given as an example

Usage of the Nunavut Kamatsiaqtut help line (NKHL) : an analysis of 11 years' of database( )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Information collection from the crisis lines (local and toll-free) and the toll-free AIDS Information line was analyzed to assess the demographics of its users, the pattern of use and services delivered by the lines, and the association between the pattern of use of its local lines with the lunar phase and photoperiod in Iqaluit. Anonymity of the callers and NKHL volunteers was preserved by adopting a numberical code to track calls and grouping them on a regional instead of community basis. Results showed that the crisis lines were used primarily by females and by adults for discussing personal problems. The AIDS lines was used more by males and by adults to obtain information and disclose personal problems. Most of the callers to both types of lines were from the Baffin region although many calls came from across the country. The calls followed a clear lunar pattern with most calls coming in during the new moon and full moon. There was also a photoperiod pattern with least number of calls occuring during the days with the longest daylight hours. Finally, the monthly pattern of the crisis linees calls from Nunavut that involved suicidal thoughts/intentions showed peaks during October, December, March, June and July. This mirrors the suicide deaths in Nunavut where males are more likely to kill themselves during spring and late fall/winter, and females are more likely to kill themselves during the summer. -- p.3
