This Is Not a Test

It's the end of the world. Six students have taken cover in Cortege High but shelter is little comfort when the dead outside won't stop pounding on the doors. One bite is all it takes to kill a person and bring them back as a monstrous version of their former self. To Sloane Price, that doesn't sound so bad. Six months ago, her world collapsed and since then, she's failed to find a reason to keep going. Now seems like the perfect time to give up. As Sloane eagerly waits for the barricades to fall, she's forced to witness the apocalypse through the eyes of five people who actually want to live. But as the days crawl by, the motivations for survival change in startling ways and soon the group's fate is determined less and less by what's happening outside and more and more by the unpredictable and violent bids for life—and death—inside. When everything is gone, what do you hold on to?

Words Can Explain

There are times when you just want to talk aloud or just blurt out whatever comes to mind. Well you can. Sha Rene' speaks her mind and uses her words to get across a message. Most people can't just sit there and listen to your opinions or your outlook on life or how you feel about your day or how things went in your past relationships with men or say the things back to the people who hurt you or laugh at all the funny stuff people did. This book does exactly that. Like, "Ntozake Shange's poetry for stage, "For Colored Girls," Sha writes these intense words from her African American experience, made for you to listen as a dramatic piece of Chuma Okoli on the canvas. It's like being a fly on the wall. In music there is the opportunity to ignore the words to a sing and listen along to a beat of the drum or the string of the violin or the tap of the piano, but with spoken words, u can git deep! Lot's of slang in this book. She raps like that! This book is "the spoken word" a form of poetry to song, a form of song in poetry and sad, amazingly honest and also funny. There are parts of this book that allow you to go with the writer through a given situation and in a colorful way let you bend the rules with her, let you laugh with her and cry with her and sometimes scream with her. Rap with her! Words with a beat and beating up the words and then there is silence. This book although written is made for performance, made for the stage and an open mic. Made for one who wants to listen to what is right and sometimes wrong. "Words Can Explain": How you feel when you get up in the morning, How you feel when you are in mourning, how you feel when your work is done, How it feels to be Black and a woman and single and alone and strong and a child and also grown, How feel when you are the only one holding it down! So listen up my brothas and sistas. Listen up!

Doing Better Statistics in Human Computer Interaction

Each chapter of this book covers specific topics in statistical analysis, such as robust alternatives to t-tests or how to develop a questionnaire. They also address particular questions on these topics, which are commonly asked by human-computer interaction (HCI) researchers when planning or completing the analysis of their data. The book presents the current best practice in statistics, drawing on the state-of-the-art literature that is rarely presented in HCI. This is achieved by providing strong arguments that support good statistical analysis without relying on mathematical explanations. It additionally offers some philosophical underpinnings for statistics, so that readers can see how statistics fit with experimental design and the fundamental goal of discovering new HCI knowledge.

Testing Testing

This book is about how our addiction to testing influences both society and ourselves as socially defined persons. The analysis focuses on tests of people, particularly tests in schools, intelligence tests, vocational interest tests, lie detection, integrity tests, and drug tests. Diagnostic psychiatric tests and medical tests are included only tangentially. A good deal of the descriptive material will be familiar to readers from their personal experience as takers and/or givers of tests. But testing, as with much of ordinary life, has implications that we seldom pause to ponder and often do not even notice. My aim is to uncover in the everyday operation of testing a series of well-concealed and mostly unintended consequences that exercise far deeper and more pervasive influence in social life than is commonly recognized.

Introducing English Grammar

This test is a very firm one and if a word cannot be found to substitute for the string, then this will most likely genuinely mean that it is not a constituent. As we shall see, not all tests are this helpful.

Introducing English Grammar

Answering key questions such as 'Why study grammar?' and 'What is standard English?', Introducing English Grammar guides readers through the practical analysis of the syntax of English sentences. With all special terms carefully explained as they are introduced, the book is written for readers with no previous experience of grammatical analysis. It is ideal for all those beginning their study of linguistics, English language or speech pathology, as well as students with primarily literary interests who need to cover the basics of linguistic analysis. The approach taken is in line with current research in grammar, a particular advantage for students who may go on to study syntax in more depth. All the examples and exercises use real language taken from newspaper articles, non-standard dialects and include excerpts from studies of patients with language difficulties. Students are encouraged to think about the terminology as a tool kit for studying language and to test what can and cannot be described using these tools. This new edition has been fully revised in line with recent research. There is a new chapter on World English, a new glossary and a free website with extensive further reading and answers to the exercises, which can be found at www.routledge.com/cw/borjars
