  • Feeding back to feed forward: formative assessment as a platform for effective learning 

    Wheatley, Lucy; McInch, Alex; Fleming, Scott; Lord, Rhiannon (UKnowledge, 2015-02)
    Students construct meaning through relevant learning activities (Biggs, 2003) which are largely determined by the type, amount, and timing of feedback (Carless, 2006). The aim of the present study was to develop a greater ...
  • Female reproductive strategy predicts preferences for sexual dimorphism in male faces 

    Moore, Fhionna R.; Law Smith, Miriam; Cassidy, Clare; Perrett, David (Akadémiai Kiadó, 2009-09)
    The aim of the current studies was to test an assumption that variation in female preferences for sexually dimorphic male facial characteristics reflects strategic optimisation of investment in offspring. A negative ...
  • Female status predicts female mate preferences across nonindustrial societies 

    Moore, Fhionna R.; Cassidy, Clare (SAGE Publications, 2007)
    Most studies demonstrating the contribution of economic constraints on women to sex differences in mate preferences have used samples from postindustrial societies with similar social structures. The authors investigate ...
  • Fermentation of stalk juices from different Nigerian sorghum cultivars to ethanol 

    Nasidi, Muhammad; Agu, Reginald; Deeni, Yusuf Y.; Walker, Graeme M. (De Gruyter, 2013-08)
    For improved production of ethanol from sorghum stalk juice fermentation, cultivation location and cultivar type are important factors to consider. In the present study, SSV2 and KSV8 sorghum cultivars were cultivated in ...
  • Fiddler Tam: the life of Thomas Erskine, 6th Earl of Kelli 

    McAlpine, Kenneth B.; Moffat, Maggie; Natanson, Jan (Pittenweem Arts Festival, 2008-08)
    Fiddler Tam is a musical costume pageant that explores the life and music of Thomas Erskine, the 6th Earl of Kellie. Directed by, and featuring the elaborate costumes of designer Maggie Moffat, Fiddler Tam plays out in his ...
  • Film and cinema: sets and techniques 

    Panay, Andrew (Routledge, 2004)
  • Filtration and transport of heavy metals in graphene oxide enabled sand columns 

    Ding, Zhuhong; Hu, Xin; Morales, Verónica L.; Gao, Bin (Elsevier, 2014-12-01)
    A fixed-bed sand column with graphene oxide (GO) layer was used to remove heavy metals (Cu(II) and Pb(II)) from an aqueous solution injected under steady flow. Due to the time constrained kinetic process of heavy metal ...
  • Finding roots by deflated polynomial approximation 

    Lucas, T. Nigel (Elsevier, 1990)
    A numerical technique is presented which evaluates the roots of polynomials with real coefficients. Features of the method include no complex arithmetic requirements, no need to guess at initial quadratic factor estimates, ...
  • Finding roots of polynomials by using the Routh array 

    Lucas, T. Nigel (Institution of Engineering and Technology, 1996-08)
    A robust method for finding the roots of polynomials using the Routh array is given. Certain multipoint approximation properties of the array are clarified, which enable a simple criterion to be used in the root-finding ...
  • Finding the future: evolving interaction design 

    Primrose, Kym; Sloan, Robin J. S.; Scott-Brown, Kenneth C. (ACM, 2015-07-13)
    The main aim of this project is to design and prototype a simplified example of a mobile operating system that makes use of both edge swipe control and 'smart' graphical instructions. The research will consider how these ...
  • Finite deformation in ideal magnetohydrodynamics 

    MacTaggart, David (EDP Sciences, 2012-06)
    Aims: In this paper we investigate the finite deformation of magnetic fields that can enable one to find complex analytical magnetohydrostatic (MHS) equilibria. These can be used as input to non-linear simulations. Methods: ...
  • Firesetting in secure settings: theory, treatment and management 

    Gannon, Theresa; Tyler, Nichola; Dickens, Geoffrey L. (RCPsych Publications, 2015)
    This chapter briefly reviews the epidemiology of firesetting, its relationship with mental disorder and the prevalence of firesetting among particular patient groups who may be resident in secure care. We then describe ...
  • The first millimeter detection of a non-accreting ultracool dwarf 

    Williams, P. K. G.; Casewell, S. L.; Stark, Craig R.; Littlefair, S. P.; Helling, Ch.; Berger, E. (IOP Publishing, 2015-12-09)
    The well-studied M9 dwarf TVLM 513–46546 is a rapid rotator (P rot ~ 2 hr) hosting a stable, dipolar magnetic field of ~3 kG surface strength. Here we report its detection with ALMA at 95 GHz at a mean flux density of 56 ...
  • First Person Shooter multiplayer game traffic analysis 

    Zhou, Qili; Miller, Colin J.; Bassilious, Victor (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2008-05)
    Internet delay is important for FPS games because it can determine who wins or loses a game. Network traffic for such games has been analysed using packet size and inter-packet time metrics fitting a statistical model. ...
  • The first year in higher education: engagement and empowerment 

    Moir, James (The International Journal of Learning, 2010)
    This paper considers what we mean by referring to empowerment in higher education (HE) with respect to student engagement and persistence (Barnett, 2007, 2009). This is considered from the point of view of how students ...
  • The flexible citizen: education and citizenship 

    Moir, James (Inter-Disciplinary Press, 2014)
  • The flexible citizen: education and citizenship 

    Moir, James (2014-03-16)
    This paper considers the recent focus on citizenship within education by taking curricular reform within Scottish secondary schooling and its linkage with higher education as a case study. In Scotland the Curriculum for ...
  • A flexible extended warranty and related optimal strategies 

    Jack, Nat; Murthy, D. N. P. (Palgrave Macmillan, 2007)
    The choice of extended warranties (EWs) currently available to consumers is extremely limited. Their EW purchase decisions have to be made at or very close to the time that they purchase the products and, at this point, ...
  • Flexible time-response matching in discrete model reduction 

    Lucas, T. Nigel (Sage Publications, 2000-08)
    A simple way to match the time responses of the full- and reduced-order models at arbitrary sampling points is given for discrete-time systems. It is seen to be a natural extension of the Padé methods and is particularly ...
