It is evidently clear from the discussion that the framework of Global Interoperability Framework (GIF) has been developed on the basis of Identification, Authentication and Electronic Signature (IAS). Interoperability between different types of smart card schemes is desired to be achieved by means of this framework.
The current research aims to assess the impact of factors like gender, grades, activity level, parental education, self-image and immigration status on self-rated performance of Norway students on five ball games (Volleyball, Basketball, Floorball, Handball and Football).
Research has established that the presence of social information may also influence conformance, as individuals who are aware that others have donated a certain amount to charity are more likely to donate an equal or greater amount. Research has also shown that gender may differentiate conformance attitudes.
To this end, students in 10th grade were given various mathematical problems to solve. The results that came from the data collection have been presented and discussed below. It is worth emphasizing that because the current research was conducted using the mixed research approach the data have been grouped into qualitative and quantitative data.
In a research by Singh, O' Donoghue & Betts, “A UK study into the potential effects of virtual education: Does online learning spell an end for on-campus learning?” , it was found that virtual worlds are a more influential media for education that offer many opportunities for students all over the world.
The research was carried out using survey methodology. The questionnaire and the semi-structured interview guide served as the primary and secondary research instruments. Student-respondents from Grade 10 were involved by total enumeration, whereas the teachers and student-teachers were chosen through purposive sampling. Results were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistical measures. Findings revealed that the students were significantly more interested in the hands-on activity compared to a lecture given for the same concept.
The administrative team at RYSS has approved a tutoring program for summer school students. Tutoring fits into the larger context of education because (a) tutoring helps students who are struggling while allowing them to engage in a challenging, rigorous learning experience; (b) tutoring assists students in moving toward grade level achievement, and (c) tutoring builds successful students so that they move from success to success
