Cluster analysis by linear contrasts by Michael Shafto( Book )

2 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this paper is to suggest a technique of cluster analysis which is similar in aim to the Interactive Intercolumnar Correlation Analysis (iica), though different in detail. Two methods are proposed for extracting a single bipolar factor (a "contrast compenent") directly from the initial similarities matrix. The advantages of this general approach are that: (a) It helps avoid certain misclassification problems inherent in iica; (b) It is related in a straightforward way to conventional techniques of multidimensional scaling and therefore allows a unified treatment of dimensional and "typal" structures; and (c) It provides an interesting solution to the problem of relations among linear contrasts based on different subsets of the stimuli.

Diagnostic monitoring of skill and knowledge acquisition by Norman Frederiksen( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An adjunct to the increased emphasis on developing students' critical thinking and higher order skills is the need for methods to monitor and evaluate these abilities. These papers provide insight into current techniques and examine possibilities for the future. The contributors to Diagnostic Monitoring of Skill and Knowledge Acquisition focus on two beliefs: that new kinds of tests and assessment methods are needed; and that instruction and learning can be improved by developing new assessment methods based on work in cognitive science
