O objetivo desta dissertação é analisar qualitativamente o ferramental disponível para suporte à melhoria de desempenho ambiental no desenvolvimento de projetos, quanto à viabilidade de aplicação à prática projetual corrente no Brasil. A crescente conscientização de que o consumo sustentável dos recursos naturais é freqüentemente ignorado ou mal interpretado nas práticas projetuais, tem levado os projetistas a assumir suas reais responsabilidades e melhorar o diálogo e a interrelação com outros agentes do macro setor da construção civil. Neste contexto o trabalho procura discutir conceitos básicos sobre o paradigma do projeto orientado ao desempenho, o processo de projeto integrado, bem como assuntos relacionados à indústria da construção. São revistos temas teóricos afetos ao desempenho construtivo, avaliação do ciclo de vida, e ainda aos impactos ambientais decorrentes das atividades antrópicas. São discutidas as responsabilidades e postura do projetista quanto à questão. Por fim, passa-se a uma avaliação qualitativa quanto ao emprego em projetos das diversas classes de ferramentas de avaliação de desempenho ambiental. Essa análise abrangente oferece referências de caráter conceitual e prático para o desenvolvimento e a consolidação de ferramentas para avaliação ambiental...

Com a expansão da Educação a Distância (EaD) no Brasil, nos últimos anos, avaliações são fundamentais para mensurar o seu desempenho. Contudo, a qualidade é muitas vezes questionada e possivelmente uma das causas é a falta de confiabilidade e validade dos instrumentos utilizados. Desta forma, o objetivo deste estudo foi criar uma arquitetura de orientação para a construção de instrumentos de avaliação de Programas de Educação a Distância com evidências de confiabilidade e validade. A investigação é uma pesquisa descritiva e explicativa, que congrega os enfoques qualitativo e quantitativo e é sustentada por um arcabouço teórico e metodológico. Além disso, parte do pressuposto de um sistema integrado, cuja natureza cíclica do método confere dinamicidade e flexibilidade, sobretudo em ações que lastreiam qualidade ao produto final. Para isso, propõe-se um conjunto de elementos que podem ser utilizados como referência para a construção de diferentes instrumentos de avaliação. A partir da arquitetura de orientação desenvolvida criou-se um plano de assessment, o qual foi aplicado em um caso específico. Os resultados demonstram que a arquitetura é viável e tem capacidade de atender diferentes modelos e contextos de EaD...

A avaliação somativa é a que prevalece nas instituições de ensino superior, os instrumentos de avaliação tradicionalmente utilizados (provas e relatórios) fornecem informações sobre a aprendizagem de conteúdos conceituais e ficam à margem a avaliação dos conteúdos procedimentais e atitudinais. Além disso, provas e relatórios são realizados num momento final das atividades, tardio para um feedback adequado, não havendo tempo para intervir na aprendizagem. Emerge nesse contexto a necessidade de se estudar e refletir sobre os processos avaliativos utilizados na disciplina de Química Analítica Qualitativa (QAQ). Diante disto, tinha-se uma pergunta: haveriam instrumentos adequados e ao mesmo tempo abrangentes que permitissem melhorar o processo avaliativo na disciplina QAQ? Com o objetivo de responder a esta questão foram aplicadas e analisadas duas modalidades de instrumentos de avaliação: pré-exercícios de laboratório (PEL) e grades de observação (GO). Esta pesquisa é de natureza qualitativa, e foi fundamentada em contribuições teóricas de autores que são a favor da avaliação no decorrer do processo de ensino. Sendo assim, teve-se como uma das principais referências Fernandes (2006), que propõe a expressão Avaliação Formativa Alternativa (AFA)...

In the last two decades we have seen the proliferation of assessment tools for socio-emotional competences based on self-report, that only inform us about the beliefs that respondents have about their own competences and not about their real competences. The need to overcome this kind of tools’ limitations, and develop assessment options that foster the ecological validity of collected information, encouraged the development of hetero-evaluation tools based, namely, in the opinions that parents have about their children socio-emotional competences. In this work, with a convenience sample of 715 mothers of both sex youngsters, we present the structural validity’s study of the Emotional Quotient Inventory (EQ-I; Portuguese version of Bar-On for parents) and the Perceived Social Competence (PSC-Pa: PSC parents’ version). EQ-I is a tool related to beliefs that parents have about their children emotional intelligence, with 38 items (4-point scaled) organized around five factors (Intrapersonal, Interpersonal, Stress Management, Adaptability, and Mood). PSC-Pa is a tool that consists of five subscales related to parent’s perceived social competence of their children in five hypothetical interpersonal situations, with 10 items (3-point scaled) organized around five factors (Intimate Relationship...

A foremost dispute that persists on the contemporary world’s agenda is change. The on-going social/technological/economic changes create a competitive and challenging environment for companies to endure. To benefit from these changes, world economies partially depend on emerging Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and their adaptability skills, and subsequently the development of an integrated capability to innovate has become the prime strategy for most of SMEs to subsist and grow. However, innovation and change are always somewhat bonded to an inherent risk development, which subsequently brings on the necessity of a revision of risk management approaches in innovative processes, whose importance SMEs tend to disregard. Additionally, little efforts have been made to improve and create empirical models, metrics and tools to assist SMEs managing latent risks in their innovative projects. This work seeks to present and discuss a solution to support SMEs in engaging on systematic risk management practices, which consists on an integrated risk assessment and response support web-based tool - Spotrisk® - designed for SMEs. On the other hand, an inherent subjectivity is linked with risk management and identification processes, due to uncertainty trait of its nature...

This study comprises a systematic review and metasynthesis of qualitative literature on national and international databases to identify the main tools used to assess Primary Health Care (PHC). A total of 3,048 results were returned for literature written in Portuguese, Spanish and English published between 1979 and 2013. Thirty-three articles/studies were selected after thorough reading and analysis. Eight of these studies addressed the use of one or more of the following validated PHC assessment tools: the WHO Primary Care Assessment Tool (PCET); the ADHD Questionnaire for Primary Care Providers (AQ-PCP); the General Practice Assessment Questionnaire (GPAQ), PACOTAPS (primary health care software); and the PCAT (Primary Care Assessment Tool). The study showed that the majority of these tools were used internationally. The PCAT and EUROPEP were used in Brazil and the most commonly used tool in this country was the PCAT. The results show that the use of research tools to assess PHC may assist in the creation of new proposals to improve family healthcare and that PCAT is the most adequate tool for this purpose.

Objectives: To undertake a systematic review on structured violence risk assessment tools in individuals with schizophrenia. Methods: A systematic search was conducted from 1990 to 2011 to identify violence risk assessment tools and studies examining their predictive validity. Item content of the identified instruments was analyzed, and areas under the curve (AUC) from the studies were extracted. In addition, an 11-item checklist was developed to assess the utility and psychometric properties of these tools. Results: Ten risk assessment tools designed to predict community violence in psychiatric patients were identified, but only 2 studies reporting predictive validity estimates in patients with schizophrenia were found (median AUC = 0.69; interquartile range = 0.60–0.77). When inclusion criteria was broadened to include studies measuring accuracy for any diagnostic group, mixed evidence of predictive validity was found, with median AUCs ranging from 0.62 to 0.85 depending on the population. Item content included mostly clinical, sociodemographic, and criminal history factors. As only 1 tool included a neurobiological item, a structured review of brain-based and cognitive risk factors for violence was included, and 3 clusters (neurocognitive ability...

The importance of movement is often overlooked because it is such a natural part of human life. It is, however, crucial for a child’s physical, cognitive and social development. In addition, experiences support learning and development of fundamental movement skills. The foundations of those skills are laid in early childhood and essential to encourage a physically active lifestyle. Fundamental movement skill performance can be examined with several assessment tools. The choice of a test will depend on the context in which the assessment is planned. This article compares seven assessment tools which are often referred to in European or international context. It discusses the tools’ usefulness for the assessment of movement skill development in general population samples. After a brief description of each assessment tool the article focuses on contents, reliability, validity and normative data. A conclusion outline of strengths and weaknesses of all reviewed assessment tools focusing on their use in educational research settings is provided and stresses the importance of regular data collection of fundamental movement skill development among preschool children.

Clinical guidelines advocate stroke prevention therapy in atrial fibrillation (AF) patients, specifically anticoagulation. However, the decision to initiate treatment is based on the risk (bleeding) versus benefit (prevention of stroke) of therapy, which is often difficult to assess. This review identifies available risk assessment tools to facilitate the safe and optimal use of antithrombotic therapy for stroke prevention in AF. Using key databases and online clinical resources to search the literature (1992–2012), 19 tools have been identified and published to date: 11 addressing stroke risk, 7 addressing bleeding risk and 1 integrating both risk assessments. The stroke risk assessment tools (e.g. CHADS2, CHA2DS2-VASc) share common risk factors: age, hypertension, previous cerebrovascular attack. The bleeding risk assessment tools (e.g. HEMORR2HAGES, HAS-BLED) share common risk factors: age, previous bleeding, renal and liver impairment. In terms of their development, six of the stroke risk assessment tools have been derived from clinical studies, whilst five are based on refinement of existing tools or expert consensus. Many have been evaluated by prospective application to data from real patient cohorts. Bleeding risk assessment tools have been derived from trials...

Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited; This research focuses on the application of existing assessment tools that may be applicable to Marine Air Ground Task Force (MAGTF) Command, Control, Communications and Computers (C4) System of Systems (SoS) performance assessment efforts. An analysis of the Marine Corps Tactical Systems Support Activity's (MCTSSA's) C4 SoS assessment approach provides a means for defining a MAGTF C4 SoS and for illustrating how that SoS is represented in the assessment environment. This provides the framework and context for follow-on examination of SoS performance metrics. The challenges with defining specific performance metrics and examination of past assessment events using those metrics provide the basis for discussion of alternative approaches and application of assessment tools specifically tailored for SoS assessment efforts. Three specific tools, i-Score, Interoperability Quotient (IQ), and Dynamic Software Architecture Visualization and Evaluation (DynSAVE), are examined. The results indicate i-Score and DynSAVE offer the greatest potential applicability to the MAGTF SoS assessment effort. In a culminating discussion, applying a multicriteria identification process to obtain a mathematical model that correlates an interoperability measure with measurable SoS performance criteria is proposed as a means of extending the i-Score model for greater applicability to SoS assessment and performance improvement efforts.; Outstanding Thesis; Marine Corps Tactical Systems Support Activity...

The Naval Aviation Enterprise (NAE) has created a program called AIRSpeed to deliver the efficiency gains of continuous process improvement (CPI). NAE leadership seeks a self-assessment tool to measure how well AIRSpeed has been implemented, including possible areas for improvement. This thesis studies the origins of continuous process improvement, the value of assessment, and current assessment methodologies. Key concepts are cited for the use of organizational assessment tools. The objectives are an enhanced body of knowledge for enterprise assessment, to provide a comparison of several approaches, and to recommend a tool for NAE AIRSpeed. The tools to be considered are the Department of Defense CPI Transformation Guidebook (DoD CPITG), the Navy's Performance Excellence Guidebook (NPEG), the Lean Aerospace Initiative (LAI) Government Lean Enterprise Self-Assessment Tool (GLESAT), and the NAVAIR Alignment Assessment Tool (NAAT). Research revealed that three of the four tools (DoD CPITG, NPEG, and GLESAT) could efficiently measure AIRSpeed maturity, and recommendations were made that a performance management framework be established by the NAE prior to implementation of any formal assessment process. The maturity level of NAE AIRSpeed could be baselined using the LAI tool in those areas where lean principles have been implemented over a period of years.

peer-reviewed; INTRODUCTION: Falls among community-dwelling older adults are a common yet often preventable occurrence. Clinicians frequently use task-based assessment tools to evaluate clients' balance and mobility with the aim of predicting falls and providing targeted fall prevention interventions, but no consensus exists on the optimum tool(s) to use for this purpose. This review aims to identify the task-based assessment tools that can best predict falls among community-dwelling older adults. METHODS: Online databases Academic Search Complete, AMED, Biomedical Reference Collection: Expanded, CINAHL Plus, MEDLINE, General Science, and SPORTDiscus were searched from 1983 to 2013 to identify prospective studies assessing the performance of specific tasks in order to predict falls. Following screening, the methodological quality of studies included for review was appraised using a checklist based on the Critical Appraisal Skills Programme tool for cohort studies [1]. RESULTS: Thirty-seven studies, dating from 1996 to 2013 and largely of high methodological quality, were included in this review. A range of task performance-based assessment tools suitable for use in both clinical and laboratory settings were identified. CONCLUSIONS: Strong evidence in favour of using the Timed Up-and-Go test...

Numerous breast cancer risk assessment tools that allow users to input personal risk information and obtain a personalized breast cancer risk estimate are available on the Internet. The goal of these tools is to increase screening awareness and identify modifiable health behaviors; however, the utility of this risk information is limited by the readability of the material. We undertook this study to assess the overall readability of breast cancer risk assessment tools and accompanying information, as well as to identify areas of suggested improvement. We searched for breast cancer risk assessment tools, using five search terms, on three search engines. All searches were performed on June 12, 2014. Sites that met inclusion criteria were then assessed for readability using the suitability assessment of materials (SAM) and the SMOG readability formula (July 1, 2014–January 31, 2015). The primary outcomes are the frequency distribution of overall SAM readability category (superior, adequate, or not suitable) and mean SMOG reading grade level. The search returned 42 sites were eligible for assessment, only 9 (21.4 %) of which achieved an overall SAM superior rating, and 27 (64.3 %) were deemed adequate. The average SMOG reading grade level was grade 12.1 (SD 1.6...

Introduction: Pain continues to be an ongoing issue of concern in adult burn patients. Inadequate pain assessment hinders meaningful research, and prevents the optimal management of burn pain. The objective of this study was to examine the content of existing research in burn pain with the frequency and context of pain assessment tool use in randomized clinical trials in order to further inform their use for future researchers and clinicians. Methods: Electronic searches of MEDLINE, CINAHL, EMBASE and The Cochrane Library databases from 1966 onwards were used to identify English articles related to clinical trials utilising pain assessment in adult burns patients. Results: The systematic literature search identified 25 randomized clinical trials utilising pain assessment tools. Unidimensional pain assessment tools were most frequently used pain assessment tools, with multidimensional tools used less often, despite the multifaceted and complex nature of burn pain. Conclusion: The review highlights the lack of consistency of pain assessment tool use in randomized clinical trials with respect to managing burn pain. We recommend a broader but consistent use of multidimensional pain assessment tools for researchers undertaking clinical trials in this field. The review supports the need for an international expert consensus to identify the necessary critical outcomes and domains for clinicians and researchers undertaking further research into burn pain.

The evaluation of the methodological quality of primary studies in systematic reviews is of great importance in order to guarantee the validity and reliability of their results, but there is no agreement on which tool should be used. Our aim is to analyze the tools proposed so far for the assessment of cohort, case-control, and cross-sectional studies in psychology and health sciences. A systematic review was performed using 5 electronic databases and Google®. In order to analyze the tools’ content, 6 domains of quality were defined based on reporting guidelines, the established bibliography, and previous similar studies. 74 tools were identified and analyzed. Few reported their reliability (20%) or validity (14%). The most frequently addressed content domains were Data collection (71.6%), Selection (67.6%), Statistics and data analysis (67.6%), and Measurement (58.1%); only 35.1% addressed Representativeness, and 6.8% addressed Funding. Despite the strengths we found scattered among the tools, there is no single obvious choice if we had to make any recommendation. Methodological quality assessment tools of non-experimental studies should meet standardized development criteria, but previously it is necessary to reach an agreement on which content domains they should take into account; La evaluación de la calidad metodológica de los estudios primarios en una revisión sistemática es importante para garantizar la validez y fiabilidad de sus resultados...

There is no clear candidate tool for assessing the methodological quality of ex post facto studies in systematic reviews and meta-analyses yet. Our purpose is to thoroughly analyze the psychometric properties of the three most comprehensive assessment tools of this kind published up to 2010. We selected these tools from a previous systematic review, and we applied each one to assess the quality of 10 prospective studies, 10 retrospective studies with quasi-control group, and 10 cross-sectional studies. Inter-rater reliability for the first two aforementioned research designs is moderate only for one of the selected tools, and moderate to high for all of them for cross-sectional studies. Agreement between tools is low in general, although the inferred aspects show that the tools have a relative good conceptual overlapping in most of the domains. According to these results we recommend two tools for assessing cross-sectional studies, but we consider that the tools applicable to prospective studies or retrospective studies with quasi-control group require further testing. The 30 concrete aspects that we have inferred from the items of the three analyzed tools can be used as starting point to develop a new tool of this kind

The importance of family assessment tools to the practicing family practice clinician cannot be stressed enough. Models are less practical than assessment tools and inventories in clinical practice. A structured method to evaluate assessment tools is presented. The Family APGAR is assessed using this method to demonstrate its usefulness to the family practice clinician. The intent of the structured method of evaluating each tool is to facilitate both the choice of a family assessment tool by the clinician and in the teaching of family assessment to those who use a family focus in their clinical care of patients.; La importancia de tener instrumentos de evaluación para la practica clínica de la familia, no ha tenido el énfasis suficiente.

Learners are often referred to occupational therapists to assess their visual perceptual functioning. It is, therefore, imperative that the occupational therapists use the best assessment tools to obtain accurate and reliable results that lead to effective intervention which will be noticeable in the classroom functioning of these learners. A study was therefore conducted which correlated the results of the Developmental Test of Visual Perception (second edition) (DTVP-2) and the Test of Visual Perceptual Skills Revised (TVPS-R) in a cohort of 173 learners from Grade 1 to Grade 4 (children aged 6 years to 11 years). The learners attended a remedial school in Kwa-Zulu Natal (South Africa). The DTVP-2 and TVPS-R appear to be of equal value when assessing a learner for visual perceptual difficulties. However, when specific sub-tests were used as a guide to focus therapy strategies, differences appear.
