Does anyone have access to a PDF version/link for Berlin questionnaire for competence assessment in EBM?
Which models/frameworks are people using for curriculum evaluation?
I hope you are in perfect condition. I am conducting a study on ICC of English learners. While I have garnered and sieved through materials from different resources, still I am dubious regarding the validity of my material. What materials could I utilize to improve my EFL learners' Intercultural Communicative Competence? My students are Pre-intermediate English learners.
I will be more than appreciative if I could receive your illuminating answers at firstname.lastname@example.org
Ph.D. candidate in TEFL, IKIU, Qazvin, Iran
I`m conducting a Ph.D. dissertation and looking forward to identifying the effectiveness of Web 3.0 in developing EFL teaching competencies.
I have a group of 16 students in my sample. 14 students evaluated themselves (anonymously) on 24 competencies prior to an intervention. Following the intervention, 12 students evaluated themselves (again, anonymously) on the same set of competencies. Because I can't compare each individual's pre and post score, I want to compare the means of each of the competency self-evaluation scores, pre and post. I can't figure out what to do.
ACM and IEEE-CS Release Computing Curricula 2020, Global Guidelines for Baccalaureate Degrees in Computing. The Association for Computing Machinery and the IEEE Computer Society have issued Computing Curricula 2020 (CC2020): Paradigms for Global Computing Education. Developed by a 50-member task force drawn from 20 countries, CC2020 outlines international recommendations for baccalaureate degrees in computing.
CC2020 is designed to be comprehensive, delineating the latest curricula for computing disciplines including computer engineering, computer science, information systems, information technology, and software engineering. CC2020 builds upon a CC2005 report by including new disciplines such as cybersecurity and data science, as well as other significant “add-ons” to reflect the changing dynamics of computing, computing education research, and the workplace. These additions include:
- Transitioning from knowledge-based learning to competency-based learning
- Expanding curricular and competency diagrams and visualizations
- Establishing an interactive website that will bring CC2020 results to public use
- Charting a framework for future curricular activities
“A key theme of the CC2020 report is that students must have the requisite knowledge and skills but that their education must go beyond these important building blocks to foster competencies.”

From various research, the aspect of competencies is viewed from the 4 Cs: communication. Cooperation, creativity and collaboration. The issue from my point of view is, do you consider entrepreneurship and innovative competencies as important factors for the 21st-century world of work and businesses? If these two competencies are important, what are their similarities and differences as compared to the 4 cs
I am currently working with a study titled "Knowledge, Competency, Adoptability and Sustainability of Artificial Intelligence (AI) Technology Among Physician Entrepreneurs in GCC Countries". I am in dilemma that which SEM model AMOS/SmartPLS will suit for the study. The total responses received so far is 220 out of the population size of 400. The main objective is to find out knowledge , competency, adoptability and sustainability of Artificial intelligence among Physician entrepreneurs.
I will be much thankful to you, if you can extend your kind feedback on this.
SMEs need to build its resilience to survive in turbulent times. Identifying core competencies and factors that build resilience are challenging for SMEs. The question persists, what makes SMEs resilient in turbulent times?
There is a trouble for me that when I was purified the antibody the rat's Fc included using protein G, but I want to keep the activity of the antibody, so I want to using another antibody mouse' Fc included to compete with the rat's Fc antibody to get the free antibody with rat's Fc, does this idea available?
I work with a thermophilic enzyme, its optimal temperature is 50 C. From some assays at 50 C and at 35 C, I was able to construct two lineweaver burke plots.
I want to ask you if my interpretation and understanding sounds correct. Comparing the Km/Vmax from either set, it appears that 35 C is a better temperature for activity. However, this enzyme experiences strong product inhibition and the higher temperature must be beneficial in reducing inhibition.
So....higher temperature = more energy = less binding efficiency = greater Km at 50 C ?
Since the product competes for binding to the active site, by reducing binding efficiency the exchange rate of product/substrate is improved and overall production is improved?
How would you report/identify the kinetic values for this enzyme? The true Km / Vmax would be at 50 C? How accurately should one describe "optimal" conditions before considering the Km / Vmax values for an enzyme? Would temp, pH and salt conc. be the main three conditions or are there others?
This question does not seek answers in the sense that both competence and loyalty are important.
For example: imagine you own a company and have two candidates for CEO. One is competent, but you know he / she is not loyal. You trust others, but you know that he / she is not competent.
If you had to decide between them, which one would you choose?
I am interested in reviewing research or hearing opinions based on the subject of adhering to the BACB Ethics Code when it comes to providing services solely within one's scope of competence while also acknowledging cultural responsibility. How can BCBAs provide ethical services to clients whose culture drastically differs from theirs? Is there ever a situation where a person's culture would present an issue outside of someone's scope of competence? If so, how would a BCBA reconcile these two issues?
what survey question can you ask preservice teachers, when you want to measure their (a)mathematical modelling competencies.
(b) pedagogical strategies
I'm developing a cultural assessment survey based in the Competing Value Framework. Do you know if there is a paid license that I should acquire? Is this a free model?
Nowadays high-quality free stuff is easily accessible to everyone who has internet access. People use those open sources and gain knowledge, skills, and competence in the fields of their choice. In most cases, the understanding and competence level of such people is better as compared to those degree/diploma holders who attend formal schools, colleges and universities. Here a question arises if we should develop a system of assessment to acknowledge the achievement of such people and award degrees and diplomas for which they qualify. I personally believe it would be an injustice if we deprive them of the diplomas and degrees on the plea that they were unable to attend school because of financial or other reasons otherwise they possess the required knowledge, skills, and competence.
How different is the competency based curriculum from 8-4-4 system.
What is the nation's opinion and how are universities preparing teachers in the making for the competency based curriculum.
Research studies including randomized controlled trials often have a time-to-event outcome as the primary outcome of interest, although competing events can precede the event of interest and thus may prevent the primary outcome from occurring - for example mortality may prevent observing cancer recurrence or may preclude need for reoperation in patients who undergo surgical repair of heart valves. Researchers often use Kaplan-Meier survival curves or the Cox proportional hazards regression model to estimate survival in the presence of censoring. These models can provide biased estimates (usually upward) of the incidence of the primary outcome over time and therefore other models which address competing risks, such as the Fine-Gray subdistribution hazards model, may be more suitable for estimating the absolute incidence of the primary outcome as well as the relative effect of treatment on the cumulative incidence function (CIF). My question is whether the Nelson-Aalen estimator is a reasonable option for estimating the hazard function and the cumulative incidence of the outcome of interest in the scenario of competing risks and if so, why is this a preferred approach over the Kaplan-Meier estimator?
I have a question about the discrepancy between conceptualization and operationalization in my study.
I used the concept named 'multicultural teaching competency'(MTC) (Spanierman et al., 2010). In their paper on validating the MTC scale, they conceptualised MTC as awareness, knowledge, and skills.
But when they processed EFA, CFA, and reliability test, the results showed that only knowledge and skills are two sufficient factors to explain MTC.
The authors explained a few reasons why awareness is not one of the factors.
But how can I justify in my dissertation the discrepancy between their original conceptualisation in which they mentioned MTC is composed of awareness, knowledge, and skills, and the outcome of the study which only knowledge and skills are two sufficient factors for MTC?
I am using SmartPLS to compare two competing established models and using BIC/CVPAT for that purpose. However, what changes in the models is the causal direction, so the key dependent variable is different in each model (Model 1: Y1; Model 2: Y4; please see the attached representations).
I read in Hair et al. (2022, p. 205), that "Some research situations call for the establishing and comparing of alternative theoretical models (...) Such alternative models all focus on the same endogenous variables but differ in their structure (...)". Does this mean that I can't use model selection criteria in this case? If so, how can I identify which model best approximates the data generation?
Thank you in advance.
Q \ Is the Sobolev space compact? totally bounded?
I am wondering whether the Sobolev space is a compact, and bounded set. Is there a good reference for it?
We use the commercial eurofins abraxis kit's for the detection of anatoxin-a (toxin produced by cyanobacteria). The test is a direct competitive ELISA based on the recognition of Anatoxin-a by a monoclonal antibody. Anatoxin-a, when present in a sample, and an Anatoxin-a-enzyme conjugate compete for the binding sites of mouse anti-Anatoxin-a antibodies in solution.
The concentrations of the samples are determined by interpolation using the standard curve constructed with each run.
The sample was containing a large concentration of cyanobacteria. So we analysed the sample pur and diluted at 1/100 and 1/200 (to be ine the linearity zone of the standard range). The sample pur was negative. However the dilutions gave positive results and I don't know why.
Thank you for helping me understand.
Through our work, we will try to integrate two types of skills (entrepreneurial skills and managerial skills). We are looking for a method or a way to carry out the study ( integration method ).
We are looking forward to your answer thank you
I‘ve been striving for an opportunity to start my phD adventure in the domain of teacher education (teachers’ digital competence, to be precise) next year, could anyone give me some advice (or booklist, maybe) on the subject, please? Thank you very much for your attention.
1 WHAT do I do now to increase my chance of getting a phD degree?(except for owning a master degree first)
2 HOW do I get potential supervisors/tutors' approval?
3 According to your experience of becoming a phD, WHY do you think the potential supervisor/tutor chose you, not him/her?
Why do employers still hire employees instead of freelancers, who must compete against each other by bidding for freelancing projects without getting any benefits?
I am coming from the background of Computer Science and now I am doing Phd. in eduaction. I want to connect my core subject computer science with the subject eduaction. I want to do a survey study on the topic Computational Thinking (CT)and Digital Competence (DC). Here I want to work on the relationship between CT and DC. I eagerly need your help and your valuable suggestion so that I can forward my work.
The upstream and downstream homologous arms design 50bp, and knock out a genome on Escherichia coli C43 (DE3) with red homologous recombination system. First, prepare pKD46 competence, then amplify KanR,2500V voltage from pET28a, and then 0.2cm electroporation cup for electroconversion. There are no transformants on the plate, and transformants are also false positive. I hope we can get the guidance of experts.
... or whether art and design is of central importance in the nationwide curricula (especially with regard to general competences)?
Hello? Good evening, I would like to ask if there is a questionnaire aligned to the set of indicators on Mathematical Competence given by Sir Turner?
Could you assist me what theories can be used as literature review about media literacy topik in the educational context..?
and do you have most related reference about communcation competence in the digital age..?
The cause-specific hazard model and the Fine-Gray subdistribution model are well known methods of competing risk analysis, but both assumes proportional hazards. Is there any method of handling competing risks that does not assume that? A google search didn't turn out very useful. Would be especially grateful if the specified methods have a Stata implementation too! Thank you in advance
Are there any studies on the antecedents of emotional competence or emotional intelligence in adulthood? I mainly find studies on children or adolescents or intervention studies.
Technology becomes fundamental for the modernization of productive systems, the area of services, medicine, among many other important areas for society. For the professional to be prepared for modernizations, innovations, among other things, schools and education systems that are also capable of preparing him are needed. In a reality such as that of Brazil, where there are still schools without an adequate structure for what is considered conventional teaching, how can access to technological resources be made available? There is a lack of adequate classrooms, adequate teaching material, laboratories that, when they exist, do not include updated resources, not to mention libraries with little or no collection. How to implement a teaching plan that prepares the student for the job market based on the proposal of industry 4.0? What skills and competencies will be considered essential for this new market? Will schools be prepared for this? And the teachers, were they trained? Are you interested in this proposal for IoT, Machine Learning, among others? Will we have areas of society where automation and technological intelligence will not be paramount?
There are certainly several issues that somehow need a more critical look, as the future of some regions may depend on that.
Those of you who are reading my concern, how is the reality in your region?
I'm a doctoral student and in the early stages of exploring research on counselor competencies. I'm especially interested in learning about how competency can be measured in specialty areas such as grief counseling and end-of-life counseling.

Thanks in advance,
I'd discovered over time that most thesis and research findings ends up in the shelves. What's your primary aim for writing papers?
a) get promoted/ career
b) personal goal
c) solve problems
d) compete with others
I´m searching for a rating scale like Gliddon, D. G. (2006). Forecasting a competency model for innovation leaders using a modified Delphi technique. The Pennsylvania State University. (page 139) for one with the Level: high vs. low importance but one where you can capture if the competence is present/existing in employees.
For example: I want to evaluate if the employee need the competence: determination.
On one hand the rating scale should evaluate if he thinks that this competence is relevant (important) and if he is determined, because I don´t want to ask for each competence the same to question (Importance and ability) twice.
Maybe there is a scale maybe not. I would be delight if someone knows a good paper about it.
I have NEB 5-alpha Competent E. coli transformed with my plasmid that has a KAN resistance gene. Although the cells are growing very well on the KAN agar plates, they are not growing well in the LB broth. I tried the same stocks of the agar plates and the LB broth with other plasmids and they are growing well. However, with this plasmid, I either get very low growth in the LB broth or almost nothing. So what can be the reason for that?
During covid-19 infection antibodies are developed against virus. Is these antibodies are life long for that strain competing against infections.
In the current biolinguistics studies, the human language mechanism, viz., I-language ('i' stands for 'internal, individual and intensional') is regarded as the unique mental faculty of human being, hence, the language faculty. It can generate expressions for the internal abstract thinking activities, and the externalization of the generated expressions can be used for human communication. As a result, the distinction between I-language and externalization turns out to be more significant than had been realized until recently, as Chomsky recently points out. As for the design of computer, a laptop runs with an operative system, and is connected to other devices, such as a printer. That is to say, the message from the laptop can also be externalized as instructions for other systems. In this case, what are the similarities and differences in the designs of human language and a laptop?
Can situational analysis and competence of action research be part of methodology section?
The value of Ki calculated for competative and non competitive enzyme inhibitors. Normally I have got maximum activity for 'a' compound, means it has got least IC50 value. It followed non- competitive inhibition. But on finding Ki value, I have got least Ki for compound 'b' which followed competitive inhibition. Why this happens? Is there any discrepancy regarding this?
May I ask for some examples/articles on the use of Nudge Theory in improving mental health and well being of health workers or employees
We bought the TOPO™ TA Cloning™ Kit for Sequencing, with One Shot™ Mach1™ T1 Phage-Resistant Chemically Competent E. coli from ThermoFisher. Unfortunately, the competent E. Coli were stored at -20°C and not at -80°C for 5 days. Storage conditions are indicated to be critic and we assume that it wont work but have anyone have experience with Competent E. Coli stored at -20°C?
Thank you for your help

Kindly tell what can be the problems and how to troubleshoot them?
I'm conducting a research on digital literacy and its linkage to the digital economy in a developing country like Pakistan.
I'm looking for experts in the following areas: economics, literacy, primary acedemia, digital economy, entrepreneurship, digital literacy, computer science, computer engineering, IT, as well as other associated fields.
I would be really grateful if you could take some time out to fill my questionnaire survey.
This quetionnaire corresponds to my first area of focus: impact of digital literacy on the digital economy.
For context: the digital economy embodies all economic transactions that either require the use of digital technologies or are related to the selling & purchasing of digital goods & services.
For the scope of this study, digital literacy has been defined through some key competences as outlined by the UN in their Digital Literacy Global Framework. The purpose of this study is to determine whether there is a relationship between digital literacy and growth in the digital economy. Furthermore, this study aims to map the relationships o fthe competencies of digital literacy against the factors leading to growth in the digital economy.
For any queries and concerns, you may reach out to us via email at email@example.com
I am about conducting a contrastive research study on the pragmatic competence of Yemeni EFL learners by comparing their responses in the speech act of gratitude to the ones made by English native speakers. My question is on the eligibility of using already-published-research data of the native speakers for my research as these native speakers are not reachable. If yes, can you suggest a criteria reference for this procedure?
Hello dear colleagues,
It is a privilege to write to you to seek for assistance. I wish to be advised on a theory. My research topic is "Instructional supervision in developing teachers' competence''. I am considering how supervisory strategies such as classroom observation, collaborative learning, monitoring, coaching and in-service training contribute to develop teachers' competence( Knowledge and skills).
I am asked to find a theory on competence, mentorship, supervision, etc. i have proposed several which i was told don't fit.
Your recommendations will be of a great help to me.
Thank you for your kind attention.
my topic is (the effect of principal communication styles on teacher motivation) so i am looking for an instrument through which i can measure teacher motivation.
self determination theory of motivation would be better? its basic needs are Autonomy, competence and relatedness.
i need your suggestion through which i can also relate with communication styles of school heads.
i will be very thankful
Most professors or researchers repeatedly find themselves under a lot of pressure to make their articles, books or prepare their classes. This is normal. What I have seen in recent years is a lack of solidarity between the same colleagues and I would like to know your experience. It is due to the pressure of arriving with all the duties and obligations or simply because many colleagues see us as a threat to their position or someone who could overshadow them, what do you think?
Has anyone any experience in modeling and editing of anatomical models using 3-matic? If so have you used any competing softwares? Were there any big trade-offs for your work?
I need literature on this topic
I am in search of validated questionnaire for measuring leaders competences and soft skills. Does anyone know where could I find one, or where should I look for it? Could not find any good ones in previous researches.
Should it be allowed for a competent patient's wishes to accept a surgical procedure be overridden by family members?
Conflict of interest in scientific publications
We often speak of conflicts of interest in the rules of publishers, but we do not cite the following case.
If the author and the reviewer are specialized in the same field and the author proposes a new method better than that of the reviewer (who, as the author himself published another method before), the reviewer will have an interest in refusing the article that competes with his. This situation can happen because the editor generally chooses the reviewer with a scientific profile close to the author. How can the author defend himself in such a situation?
I am Nohemy Navarro and I am currently performing the study for my Master thesis regarding digital skills and competences demanded to support a digital transformation. Therefore, I was wondering whether you would like to participate in this study by just sparing a bit of your time to do the above online survey.
As the population of my study are managers working in Germany, it has been a challenge to collect participants due to the COVID situation. I would highly appreciate any sharing of this link or QR code among colleges or friends, as this gesture contributes a lot of value to my research.
Considering that Covid has manifested in various forms and it is expected that this wave will end only by the starting of 2022. In this context, there is likelihood of HR force working mostly from home. This arises number of questions:
1. How will employer look at this either as an opportunity or as a threat?
2. What possible changes in HR will happen?
3.What specific skill sets are needed for the existing employees and the prospective employees?
4. New areas for research in HR
5. Possible changes in engagement, competency, industrial relations etc.
Questionnaire on Teaching Competencies for Higher Education institutions.
What functions does the student's portfolio serve to make it useful in assessing the competencies he or she has acquired?
One of the first authors aiming to differentiate between entrepreneurial knowledge and expert knowledge was Austrian economist Kirzner (1979). Kirzner (1979) suggested that the entrepreneurs may not have such domain-specific (expert) knowledge that experts may have, but it is the entrepreneur who recognizes the value of the expert knowledge. Kirzner (1979) argued that expert does not recognize the value of their knowledge or how to turn it into a profit or else the expert would be an entrepreneur.
Contrary, Desouza & Awazu (2006) stated that most entrepreneurs who open up small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) usually ‘’do so because they have knowledge in key areas of competencies and think they can compete using such knowledge’’.
So, the question still remains - does expertise reside in almost every SME ‒ is it held by experts (who are recognized for that knowledge and employed by owners or managers of SMEs) or are owners or managers of SMEs, by themselves, experts?
Usually, you’re competing against if not thousands, then hundreds of other people. People who are sending their resume applications to the same academic positions that you’re applying for.
The truth is, not all resumes are read. Those recruiters/professors are getting a large volume of applications, and you want one of those resumes they read to at least be yours.
Now, what do you suggest for creating an eye-catching resume that gets you the academic post?

As Dr. Chandra Tripathi recently said in this forum, `Actually, both types of research [basic research and applied one] are two sides of the same coin and nurture each other´. So, we could consider that both require identical, or similar, personal competencies from investigators. Which are them? Have them been analised? Are there unique competencies for applied research?, are there unique competencies for basic research?
How can we establish the age of a black hole? I think that black holes are the oldest and the most massive objects in the Universe. Am I right? Since nothing gets out from a black hole we cannot know the age of the matter inside it. Am I right?
If it is true that they are the oldest objects in the universe, knowing their age may give us information about the age of the universe, and, MAYBE, about when the Big Bang occurred. For instance, the Big Bang couldn't have occurred after the black holes were formed. Also, it may be that a black hole is a shard from the the object that exploded and produced the Big Bang.
I appologize, ny question may seem naive, cosmology is not my domain of competence.
In our country (Ukraine), they say about the formation of general and professional competencies in the training of specialists. What is your opinion – what should these competencies be? What should a graduate of such specialties know and be able to do?
I am conducting a research project on the role of a coach's inclusive competencies on coaching outcomes and I'm looking for a valid and concise measurement of a coach's implicit bias or a coach's inclusive competencies which I could apply in my quantitative study. Thank you for your help!
A great deal of research has established the need to work on certain competences in initial teacher education. However, there is no agreement on which competences are the most decisive for adequate professional development.
I do not want to use the same procedure as would be used for a Top10. Is there a protocol that is better suited for LAB? I also do not have the capabilities to perform electroporation.
