These questionnaires were used to assess tobacco, alcohol, and narcotics addiction. They were performed on secondary school male students in Taif ,Saudi Arabia, in addition to Roshd and Kafa and population as well. The total sample size for the present study is equal to 2514
The major purpose of this study is to find out the extent to which previous knowledge of Book-keeping will predict students’ academic performance in Principles of Accounts 1 (BED 111) at the NCE 100 level in College of Education, Ikere Ekiti, Ekiti State, Nigeria. The study employed an ex-post facto research design with a sample of 371 selected from a population of 708. Three research hypotheses were tested at 0.05 level of significant using T-test, Standard deviation, Multiple regression and Analysis of variance. A finding from the study reveals that previous knowledge of Book-keeping significantly contributes to the prediction of academic performance of students in Principles of Accounts 1 (BED 111) among others. It was concluded that the influence of previous knowledge in teaching/learning process provides the background to framework upon which new learning will be placed. It is recommended that Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) should properly streamline
The Students’ Variables as Predictor of Secondary School Students’ Performance in Physics in Ekiti West Local Government Area of Ekiti State, Nigeria was investigated in this study. The study adopted a survey research design of the ex-post facto type. The sample comprised 120 senior secondary school II Physics students drawn from the six secondary schools in Ekiti West Local Government Area of Ekiti state. The instruments used for the study was questionnaire and past academic performance in Physics of the students involved in the study. Two research hypotheses were generated and analysed in the study using Pearson’s Moment Correlation and Multiple regression statistical analysis. Among others, the study revealed that: students‘ variables (study habit, attitude to and interest of students in Physics) are better predictors of students’ performance in Physics, while student gender has no influence on students academic performance (is a poor predictor).
- One of the most important and promising branches of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is Machine Learning (ML),which strive to make a machine intelligent by “learning” from the data. Information Retrieval is also a popular and predominant technique having as one of its application, the ubiquitous Search Engine. Search Engine optimization (SEO) has seen remarkable advancements during the recent years. The objective of this paper is to optimize the existing predictive search mechanism by incorporating pattern based Machine Learning techniques, the association with a Semantic Database, Natural Language Processing of search query to produce more relevant predictions to the user. The main intention is to provide diversified but apt, intelligent predictions for both the diversified set of users whose domain of search queries is not constrained, as well as for the dedicated researchers whose domain will be confined, coupled with an optimal balance between the Response times, Relev
Capsicum annum L. (Syn: Capsicum frutescens L., family: Solanaceae) is an herbaceous spice plant cultivated in tropical and subtropical conditions in different countries of the world. In India it is commonly known as “Lal Mirch”. The present study deals with response of UV-B radiation on different growth parameters of capsicum crop. Plants were grown in the field and exposed to supplemental UV-B radiation (280-320nm) for 1 hr and 3hr regularly supplied by the sunlamp, 300 watt from sowing till seedling stage. The total UV-B irradiation received by the plants from the lamp was 24.23 Jm -2 s -1 . The seed germination percentage was significantly decreased by 1 hr and 3 hr UV-B irradiation. The exposure of 1 hr UV-B irradiation showed promotory response on chlorophyll content and biomass of plumule and cotyledons while exposure of 3 hr of UV-B irradiation showed inhibitory effect on growth and chlorophyll content of seedlings. Current findings suggest ways to increase crop
Leadership style is phenomenon which affects the productivity and quality nursing care. There is a lack of research studies in this area in Sri Lanka. The aim of this study was to examine the nurses’ perception about their nurse managers’ leadership style. The study sample comprised 160 nurses using simple random sampling. The research instruments were Demographic Data Recording Form and the Perceived Leadership Form Questionnaire. The reliability coefficient of the Perceived Leadership Form Questionnaire was 0.86 and the content validity index of was .91. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics. Nurses perceived their managers’ leadership style as transformational (Mean = 3.35, SD =0.64), and transactional leadership as (Mean = 3.25, SD =0.45). The results of the study showed that nurses perceived their managers’ leadership style as transformational. The study provides the opportunity for nurse managers to look into their nursing staff by examining
The aim of our study was to analysis a sample parents of tennis players in three different clubs situated in Tunisia and to incorporate the related inherent of the socio-economic factors of these issues and adopted the federal efforts to pout popularization of this sport. In our research we were incorporate for the achievement, the questionnaire as an investigative technique. The analysis focuses on a sample of 100 parents of players tennis clubs in three different situated in Greater Tunis. The questionnaire is, in fact, a set of ordered questions used to collect information’s from a population determined in tennis practice. The multiple choice question has a predetermined range of responses. Four variables were adopted; the socioeconomic level, age, level of studying, quality of population. The results indicate after comparing the responses of the experimental group: It should be noted that parents who take their children to practice courts have different social groups;
Phonics skills are considered to be the predictors of reading disability, which is off late viewed as a language based disorder. The aim of the present study is to compare the phonics skills of high and low academic achievers across Bengali and English. A checklist consisting of three parameters was developed in both the languages to assess phonics skills. A total of 42 normally developing bilingual females who attended standard three to standard five in the age range eight to eleven years participated in the study. The participants were classified as high and low academic achiever based upon school performance. Significant differences were found in all the phonics skills in both the languages except vowel sound skill in Bengali and letter name in English. It is concluded that phonics tasks should be provided importance and during classroom curriculum as it distinguishes between high academic achievers from the low academic achievers.
In this paper a hexagonal patch microstrip antenna with hexagonal slot behaves as a wide band monopole antenna having great return loss. It is designed for 1.1194-2.7078 GHz frequency band with wide bandwidth of 1.5884 GHz and return loss of - 73.63dB. A hexagonal patch with etched ground plane monopole antenna with hexagonal Slot is fabricated on the glass epoxy (FR4 lossy) of dielectric substrate with relative permittivity (εr) of 4.3, thickness of 1.6mm, loss tangent of 0.02 with a ground plane, fed with a 50Ω rectangular microstrip feed line. This prototype antenna having an omnidirectional radiation pattern is measured for frequency range of 0-3 GHz. The novelty of this antenna is that hexagonal patch with hexagonal slot gives it uniqueness in design and also getting a bandwidth approx 1.6 GHz with -73dB Return loss is big achievement in 0-3 GHz frequency Band itself. As the antenna is designed only in 0- 3GHz band, having all such properties in one antenna p
