By National Research Council, Division on Engineering and Physical Sciences, Board on Assessment of National Institute of Standards and Technology Programs

The nationwide Institute of criteria and expertise (NIST) Measurements and criteria Laboratories (MSL) offer technical management for the nation's size and criteria infrastructure and guarantee the supply of crucial reference info and dimension functions. At NIST's request, the nationwide study Council (NRC) contains out a biennial overview of the seven MSL. The review makes a speciality of every one laboratory's technical caliber and benefit; and effectiveness. It additionally examines the relevance of the NIST courses and the way good laboratory amenities, apparatus, and body of workers may be able to fulfil the MSL challenge. This document provides an total review of the MSL by means of specified tests of every of the seven laboratories.

Classroom Assessment & Grading That Work

In lecture room evaluate and Grading That paintings, Robert J. Marzano presents an in-depth exploration of what he calls "one of the main strong guns in a teacher's arsenal. " an efficient standards-based, formative evaluate application might help to dramatically improve pupil success through the K-12 approach, Marzano says.

Formal Methods for Trustworthy Computer Systems (FM89): Report from FM89: A Workshop on the Assessment of Formal Methods for Trustworthy Computer Systems. 23–27 July 1989, Halifax, Canada

The 1989 Workshop at the evaluation of Formal equipment for reliable Com­ puter structures (FM89} used to be an invitational workshop that introduced jointly repre­ sentatives from the examine, advertisement and governmental spheres of Canada, the uk, and the U.S.. The workshop used to be held in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, from July 23 via July 27, 1989.

Biogeodynamics of Pollutants in Soils and Sediments: Risk Assessment of Delayed and Non-Linear Responses

Within the united states, Western and important Europe, there are various large-scale polluted websites which are too huge to be wiped clean up economically with on hand applied sciences. The pollutants is brought on by mining actions, smelters and different heavy industries, not just to soils, but in addition to sediments in waterways and reservoirs.

The Theory and Practice of Grading Writing: Problems and Possibilities

Grading is without doubt one of the thorniest concerns writing academics needs to take care of, but, unusually little has been written in this subject. As writing academics movement more and more towards practices that concentrate on writing as a method, they face a becoming have to think again their structures of grading to figure out even if those platforms help their pedagogies.

The panel believes that EEEL should examine its need for the microassemblies and circuits that are increasingly critical in electrical metrology experiments and standards research, consider all the options for producing these devices, and develop a laboratory- or divisionwide strategy for efficiently satisfying the needs in both the short and long terms. In Gaithersburg, a significant factor in future facilities planning is the Advanced Measurement Laboratory (AML), scheduled to be ready for occupation in 2004.

The progress on strategic planning at the laboratory level is one example, although the panel will watch for continued evolution in this area, particularly in the divisions. Examples of the divisions’ commendable responsiveness to the FY 2001 report include the redirection of the compound semiconductor program in the Semiconductor Electronics Division, the stabilization of the management chain (and the resulting improvement in morale and consistency of direction) in the Electricity Division, the revision of the mission statement in the Magnetic Technology Division, the progress made on purity measurements for semiconductor gases in the Optoelectronics Division, and the delivery of standards systems to users at NIST Gaithersburg in the Electromagnetic Technology Division.

However, it did not always appear that the divisions were making an effort to find alternative approaches or were effectively making their cases to higher levels of NIST management. The panel was somewhat concerned about whether this might be a problem, for example, in the case of the engineering and architectural study for a Radio-Frequency Electromagnetic-Field Metrology Laboratory (REML) facility in the Radio-Frequency Technology Division. 22 AN ASSESSMENT OF THE NIST MEASUREMENT AND STANDARDS LABORATORIES: FY 2002 MAJOR OBSERVATIONS The panel presents the following major observations: • The work under way in the Electronics and Electrical Engineering Laboratory continues to be of the highest technical quality.
