The questions revolved on various issues ranging from the availability of the preceptors to the students to the levels of understanding of the preceptors on the specific aspects of the subjects, which they handled. The responses of the students were measured on a linkert scale and the data tabulated for analysis. Twelve graduated nurses responded to the questions. Results From the results obtained, all the answers ranged between satisfactory, good, and very good. A majority of the responses fell within the category of very good. There was zero data on the categories of poor and very poor. On the positive side, all the questions ranging from Question 1 to Question 8 received overwhelming positive response from the respondents. Question 12 also ranked highly with all the students endorsing the preceptors with the score of “Very Good.” From this set of results it shows that students were positively in agreement with the fact that the preceptors were available for them, the preceptors understood their roles, the preceptors used students strength and knowledge, and that the receptors acted as good role models. Equally, the students were unanimously in agreement with the fact that the preceptors showed a good rapport with the students, helped them understand goals and needs of the experience, provided immediate feedback with adequate comment, and that they asked students to ask questions. Similarly, the students were in agreement that the nurses communicated clinical and didactic knowledge well. On the negative side, Question 9 and Question 10 scored low on the responses of the nursing students with many of those who responded spreading out between the levels of satisfactory and very good. By implication, it would imply that the respondents did not feel very positively strongly on the questions of whether the preceptors could communicate clinical and didactic knowledge well. They also showed little affirmation on whether the preceptors communicated clinical and previous knowledge well. Discussion This evaluation report proved a significantly resourceful tool in revealing the effectiveness of the methods and approaches adopted by the preceptors in their task of teaching and guiding clinical students. The evaluation method’s strength lay in the methodology that brought out various important aspects in the teaching process. The results revealed that the performance of the preceptors on most of these areas were largely positive. This was a strong indication that the preceptors were well acquainted to play their roles in ways that were consistent with the demands of their profession. The results also showed that the preceptors should improve in certain areas that involved the imparting of knowledge to the students. As such, it is indicative that the evaluation adopted for the purpose of this research was generally suited for the task. There was no mismatch between the evaluative tools and the tasks. It might also be argued that the major concerns brought out within the process of evaluation were generally concerned with matters of professionalism in terms of how they affected the learners. Another strength in the evaluation report was the reliance of the linkert scale

The fact that all in the teaching profession have certain complex problems implies that their professional work should be assessed to ascertain their standards. This evaluation may be done by their peers, students, and other expert evaluators. However, all these evaluators should focus on the nature and the extent of the professional problems to be solved and the improvements to be implemented.
The research done involves carrying out several practises before going to bed. In order to find out the effects of these practises, there will be an alternation of the behavior from time to time. Method Instrumentation The mode of carrying out the experiment involves the carrying out of different practises among different people before going to sleep.

Most of the time people identify speaker credibility, others' reaction, and external rewards as variables that promote mindless acceptance via the peripheral route. According to Robert Cialdini of Arizona State University, there are six cues that trigger a "click, whirr" programmed response.
The creatinine blood test is done to detect health problems such as kidney damage. it is usually ordered along with a BUN (blood urea nitrogen) test to assess kidney function. Both are frequently ordered as part of either basic or comprehensive metabolic panel (BMP or CMP) groups of tests that are performed to evaluate the function of the body's major organs.
The author explains that the experiment entailed collection of a sample from the pond, and following procedures from the test kit. There was a handout consisting information about the test. It indicated the procedures for performing the entire experiment including handling the results observations and drawing conclusions.
Students within the nursing centers responded to a number of questions to determine their opinions on the teaching processes adopted by the preceptors. The questions revolved on various issues ranging from the availability of the preceptors to the students to the levels of
