Some SNVs are common: the frequency of their least common variant at a particular position (the minor allele frequency, MAF), ranging from 1 to 49%; these common SNVs are often referred to as single.

Abstract. This chapter discusses the influential theory of achievement motivation by Atkinson (Psychol Rev –, ) including the preceding work by McClelland, Atkinson, Clark, and Lowell (The achievement motive, Appleton-Century-Crofts, New York, ) and its development into the self-evaluation model by Heckhausen (Fear of failure as a self-reinforcing motive system.

Abstract. Educational assessment in the Western world has a long but very irregular history. Two distinct threads are woven together: the first is the variety of settings in which testing itself came to have practical use while the second is the incorporation of increasingly rigorous methods by which to make sense out of the results of that by: 4.

In addition, combined probability tests are extensively used in meta-analysis to combine results from several independent tests to asses an overall null hypothesis.

This paper summarizes a study conducted to determine which GOF and/or combined probability test(s) can be used to determine if a set of data with relative small sample size comes. high-stakes decisions about students, teachers, or schools), cover an appropriate breadth of the NGSS, and are cost-effective.

The measurement field has considerable experience in developing assessments that meet some of the monitoring functions shown in Table In science, such assessments are typically composed predominantly of multiple-choice and short-answer, constructed-response questions.
