This chapter examines the consequences of high-stakes testing on the educational system. We focus on the effects of high-stakes tests on students, teachers, and principals because the evidence of these effects is comparatively strong. High-stakes testing may also affect parents (e.g., their attitudes toward education, their engagement with schools, and their direct participation in their child’s learning) as well as policymakers (their beliefs about system performance, their judgments about program effectiveness, and their allocation of resources). However, these issues remain largely unexamined in the literature. As a result, this chapter concentrates on the impact of large-scale, high-stakes testing on schools and classrooms and the adults and students who teach and learn in these environments.

About the Center for Business and Human Rights at New York University Stern School of Business “At NYU Stern, we develop people and ideas that transform the challenges of the 21st century into opportunities to create value for business and society. Our Center for Business and Human Rights is the embodiment of that mission. By creating a safe haven for open dialogue and convening relevant voices for discussion around practical solutions to some of the world’s most pressing problems, the Center, and by extension this report, demonstrate that profit and principle can co-exist. ” –Peter Henry, Dean NYU Stern School of Business Dean Henry launched the Center for Business and Human Rights in March 2013 with a strong belief in the power of business to create positive change in society. In that spirit, the Center’s mission is to challenge and empower businesses to make practical progress on human rights in their own operations. It is the first center to focus on human rights as an integral part of a business school. We start from the premise that business can and does work for the good of society. We support the goal of business to create value while emphasizing high standards for human rights performance. Each year, we take on a major project around a set of human rights challenges in a sector that is of foremost concern for companies, consumers, regulators, and investors. We use the convening platform of the NYU Stern School of Business to bring together groups of companies from different sectors and different parts of the world, along with outside stakeholders and experts.
Partnering again with the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO), Web.com commissioned a national survey of NAWBO members to gather insights about business challenges women-owned businesses are facing in 2014 and understand their perceptions about the future of small business marketing. The online survey, fielded by GolinHarris from January 22 – February 11, 2014, had 606 total respondents. The survey has a +/- 4.00% – 4.25% margin of error at 95% confidence. Some of the prominent themes emerged from the survey which are explored in this summary, including: Optimism for Small Business in 2014 Concerns and Priorities Online Marketing is the Future The report, shows that while the state of the economy is the top concern, the majority of women business owners are also optimistic about their overall business performance this year. This includes optimism for their businesses’ economic growth, overall performance and increase in other women venturing to start new businesses in 2014.
Dear Reader, Zend Framework is a powerful platform for rapidly creating PHP applications. This book takes you step-by-step through the process of building a simple content management system with Zend Framework and MySQL. You start by installing Zend Server and the framework. Then you learn to leverage the framework’s components, which manage the system’s design, content, users, and navigation, among many other things. With the base system up and running, you move on to advanced topics such as performance tuning and creating an API for your CMS. Each topic adds to your CMS, building a flexible, stable, and powerful platform on which you can base your real-world projects This book is born from my experience of developing sites using many of the current open source CMS systems. These were adequate for the sort of projects that the CMS developers originally had in mind. Working with creative people, though, I found that even the simplest projects inevitably need some customization. Developing pure custom systems is an obvious solution, but it has a downside. There are many moving parts in a secure web publishing system, and developing them all from scratch takes far too long, as well as distracting you from writing key business logic. Zend Framework gives you the best of both worlds, letting you build exactly the software you want without ever having to reinvent the wheel. Forrest Lyman

HVAC Training Center One of a kind" is a phrase often used to describe Alabama Power's HVAC Training Center. Centrally located in the state and overlooking picturesque Mitchell Dam, the state-of-the-art facility has provided training, professional development and continuing education to over 20,000 participants from 40 states and three countries since 1986. The 15,000-square-foot main building houses three classrooms, three laboratories, an auditorium, dining area, computer laboratory, library, offices and administrative area. The three classrooms can easily be expanded to five. The building is equipped with 29 fully operational trainer units from 26 manufacturers; types include air source, geothermal, and dual-fuel heat pumps and commercial heat pump water heaters. The Center's staff has modified the units so participants can address virtually any technical, electrical, refrigerant or air-related questions. The facility features 14 heat pumps mounted on casters and used for tasks such as rewiring electrical systems and re-piping refrigerant systems. Simulators with internally metered devices to reflect time and proper trouble-shooting procedures measure the participant's ability to repair potential problems. In addition to the main building, the Center includes a 1,536-square-foot house with a full basement for duct board fabrication training. One half of the house is of energy-efficient construction; the other half is of conventional construction. Cutaways allow the participant to see the advantages and disadvantages of both types of construction. Together, the facilities offer the most current equipment supplemented by handson, performance-based classroom training. Some courses may be customized and presented at the customer’s location.
