An Evaluation of Comparative Piano Technique Since 1902

An Evaluation of Comparative Piano Technique Since 1902

Date: August 1941
Creator: Cobb, Nettie Alice
Description: There are no figures available, but if a survey were made, possibly more people would be found engaged in the study and teaching of piano than any other musical instrument. It is much to be desired for both teachers and students to have an intimate acquaintance with the principles underlying the structure of modern piano technique. The situation as it generally exists contrasts sharply with the ideal situation. The ignorance of this important phase of piano study causes an enormous annual waste of time and money on the part of students. With an adequate technical knowledge, teachers, instead of allowing their pupils to practice blindly and mechanically, would be able to explain the reason for each movement they ask them to perform. Many failures in both classes occur because of the lack of understanding of what piano playing requires.

An Evaluation of Courses of Study for Teaching the Social Studies in the Primary Grades

An Evaluation of Courses of Study for Teaching the Social Studies in the Primary Grades

Date: 1951
Creator: Alford, Katherine Elizabeth Bower
Description: The purpose of this study was twofold: (1) to read and analyze professional literature to determine criteria for an adequate social-studies program in an elementary grade, and (2) to evaluate a selected number of courses of study of large-city school systems and state departments of education to determine the extent to which they meet criteria.

An Evaluation of Distributive Education in Texas

An Evaluation of Distributive Education in Texas

Date: 1941
Creator: Sanford, Charles
Description: This study was made in an effort to evaluate the need in Texas for Distributive Education--a vocational education for workers in distributive occupations. By the term, distributive occupation, is meant an occupation in which workers are employed in the commercial exchanges necessary for making available to consumers the goods and services produced by others.

Evaluation of dynamic and static electrical characteristics for the DY8 and YI8 process gallium diodes in comparison to the DI8 process boron diodes.

Evaluation of dynamic and static electrical characteristics for the DY8 and YI8 process gallium diodes in comparison to the DI8 process boron diodes.

Access: Use of this item is restricted to the UNT Community.
Date: December 2006
Creator: Dhoopati, Swathi
Description: A rectifier is an electrical device, comprising one or more semiconductor devices arranged for converting alternating current to direct current by blocking the negative or positive portion of the waveform. The purpose of this study would be to evaluate dynamic and static electrical characteristics of rectifier chips fabricated with (a) DY8 process and (b) YI8 process and compare them with the existing DI8 process rectifiers. These new rectifiers were tested to compare their performance to meet or exceed requirements of lower forward voltages, leakage currents, reverse recovery time, and greater sustainability at higher temperatures compared to diodes manufactured using boron as base (DI8 process diodes) for similar input variables.

Evaluation of Ethanol’s Effects on the Biophysical Characteristics of Licking

Evaluation of Ethanol’s Effects on the Biophysical Characteristics of Licking

Date: December 2014
Creator: Stewart, Daryl Ellen
Description: Alcohol use disorders are a public health issue related to adverse effects for individuals and society. A low level of response, or decreased sensitivity, to alcohol has been identified as a heritable risk factor for development of alcohol use disorders. One method for researching level of response to alcohol is through the use of rodent models, which are developed to mimic human conditions while eliminating barriers to conducting research with people. Current rodent models used to evaluate effects of ethanol on motor performance have been criticized for not being well matched to human tasks that measure level of change in body sway after alcohol consumption. This study looks at oromotor behavior as a potential alternative to gross motor performance in hopes of increasing correspondence between human and rodent measures of intoxication. To evaluate rodent oromotor performance a force transducer lickometer is used to measure several dimensions of licking behavior after administration of different concentrations of ethanol solution via gavage. Results show that force of licking is not sensitive to dose of ethanol. The total number of licks per session show dose related decreases and licking rhythm, evaluated by the length and distribution of interlick intervals, either increased or decreased for ...

An Evaluation of Experiences Available to Elementary Student Teachers in the State Teachers Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools

An Evaluation of Experiences Available to Elementary Student Teachers in the State Teachers Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools

Date: 1949
Creator: Larson, Myrtice Nygaard
Description: The purpose of this investigation is to make a survey study of the activities provided by state teachers colleges for intending teachers in the elementary schools. Those experiences are evaluated by comparison with opinions of authorities and the recommendations of the American Association of Teachers Colleges.
