The article considers the preliminary results of the research comparing self assessment and real choices behavior strategies in difficult and conflict situations.
The collection of materials of the IX international research and practice conference "European Science and Technology" is the research and practice edition which includes the scientific articles od students, graduate students, postdoctoral students, doctoral candidates, research scientists of higher education institutions of Europe, Russia, the countries of FSU and beyond reflecting the processes and the changes occurring in the structure of present knowledge.
The paper explores the factors which may cause conflicts in the state structures and bodies. The research reveals an interaction between the elements of corporate culture and the level of conflict. The article gives wide range of examples of the conflict resolutions in various governmental agencies and recommends the way to prevent the conflicts.
The article argues the necessity to change the philosophy of assessment and assessment practices in FLT in higher education from summative (scoring) to formative (scaffolding). Approaches to formulating learning outcomes in FLT at non-linguistic tertiary institutions are presented and approaches to using criterion-based assessment scales for assessment as such, for generating feedback and developing self-assessment and reflection are explained.
The paper views peer assessment as a testing tool in the ESP blended learning environment. Being a horizontal assessment technique, peer assessment enhances students' skills of peer and self-evaluation, which is indispensable for any language learner who aims at achieving the Upper-intermediate+ level(s). The authors present a peer assessment pattern to assess the writing and speaking production which can be implemented via the Edmodo platform. The pattern to be employed emphasizes the peer assessment testing and teaching functions.
In theory, a poverty line can be defined as the cost of a common (inter-personally comparable) utility level across a population. But how can one know if this holds in practice? For groups sharing common consumption needs but facing different prices, the theory of revealed preference can be used to derive testable implications of utility consistency knowing only the "poverty bundles" and their prices. Heterogeneity in needs calls for extra information. We argue that subjective welfare data offer a credible means of testing utility consistency across different needs groups. A case study of Russia's official poverty lines shows how revealed preference tests can be used in conjunction with qualitative information on needs heterogeneity. The results lead us to question the utility consistency of Russia's official poverty lines.
This paper represents an initial report on findings for a study aimed at analyzing several key aspects of middle class development in the Russian regions (subjects of Federation - oblasts, krays, autonomous republics), namely: Federal and regional government programs to stimulate the growth of the middle class (content, tools of implementation, effectiveness); Behavioral strategies and economic behavior (consumption patterns propensity to save, investment) of different sections of Russian middle class; Middle class value orientation and political preferences (including preferences for democracy).
This Proceedings include a collection of double-blind peer-reviewed publications that present findings from emprical works and advances from conceptual works done by students, faculty, and researchers-practitioners who participated in the Annual South Florida Education Research Conference, Miami, USA.
This study focuses on the assessment process and evaluation tools in a case study or a role play in a non-linguistic university. The multi-skill and multi-level communication activity assessment scheme is presented herein to enhance the students’ performance.
