Program Evaluation offers techniques to plan services wisely, track the degree of actual implementation of the plans, and measure the effectiveness of the services. It provides an overview of the techniques of program evaluation in an accessible writing style. In it, readers are guided from an initial conception of evaluation, through planning, observation gathering, analysis, and report writing and presentation. It puts a human face on evaluation by providing sketches of nine program evaluators, as well as discussion questions prompting readers to test their use of the skills.
We suggest an original method of student cheating evaluation based on the comparison of students’ grades in exams in class, home assignments and experimental homework. The data for the study is collected from the survey of 2012–2013 sophomores of the International College of Economics and Finance at the National Research University Higher School of Economics in Moscow, Russia. At the end of the course in Statistics in addition to standard assignments (homework and exams) students were given experimental homework with a ban on cooperation among them. The violation of this rule was qualified as cheating. The scale of cooperation is measured and then tested through the stochastic frontier technique; it reveals connection with the GPA level, students’ expectations of the cheaters’ share and students’ moral norms. We also find different behavioral patterns for high and low performing students as well as country specific context of student cheating behavior.

A textbook must provide, first and foremost, information to assist the reader in better understanding the topic. Second, it ought to provide the information in a way that can be easily accessed and digested, and it needs to be credible. Textbooks that have gone through multiple editions continue to improve as a result of reviewers' comments and readers' feedback, and this one is no exception. Looking back over the efforts associated with this Fifth Edition, the old wedding custom of "something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue" comes to mind. We have built upon the solid foundation of previous editions, but then added "something new." It almost goes without saying that we have "borrowed" from others in that we both cite and quote examples of program evaluation studies from the literature. "Something blue" . . . well, we're not sure about that.
Introduction and Notes by Dr Keith Carabine, University of Kent at Canterbury Crime and Punishment is one of the greatest and most readable novels ever written. From the beginning we are locked into the frenzied consciousness of Raskolnikov who, against his better instincts, is inexorably drawn to commit a brutal double murder. From that moment on, we share his conflicting feelings of self-loathing and pride, of contempt for and need of others, and of terrible despair and hope of redemption: and, in a remarkable transformation of the detective novel, we follow his agonised efforts to probe and confront both his own motives for, and the consequences of, his crime. The result is a tragic novel built out of a series of supremely dramatic scenes that illuminate the eternal conflicts at the heart of human existence: most especially our desire for self-expression and self-fulfilment, as against the constraints of morality and human laws; and our agonised awareness of the world's harsh injustices and of our own mortality, as against the mysteries of divine justice and immortality.
This is a science education book that discloses the age and the origins of the human civilization. It reveals the most mysterious and the most unknowable – aliens, visiting the ancient Earth, and their amazing genetic experiments, which they carried out here. Based on multiple evidences, the author describes the significant difference between Celestials and ordinary Earth humans in every detail, and possible reasons to have the humans destroyed with the Flood are also listed.
