In order to estimate reliability by a single administration of one test form, various approaches and corresponding reliability coefficients have been proposed so far. Currently, the five most influential approaches are: internal consistency, lower bound, principal components analysis (PCA),...
Accuracy and reliability of CBCT imaging for adenoid hypertrophy screening among a sample of oral maxillofacial radiologists and orthodontists and by an automated commercial imaging softwareDownload
Objectives. This thesis project aimed to investigate the diagnostic performance of different dental specialists and a modern dental imaging software to evaluate adenoidal hypertrophy compared with the current reference standard diagnosis by an Otorhinolaryngologist – Head and Neck Surgeon (OHNS)...
Assessment of Variation in the Alberta Context Tool: The Contribution of Unit Level Contextual Factors and Specialty in Canadian Pediatric Acute Care SettingsDownload
Background: There are few validated measures of organizational context and none that we located are parsimonious and address modifiable characteristics of context. The Alberta Context Tool (ACT) was developed to meet this need. The instrument assesses 8 dimensions of context, which comprise 10...
Design, Simulation and Evaluation of Effective Industrial Information Systems: Case of Machine Condition Monitoring and Maintenance Management Information SystemsDownload
Industrial information systems can improve the management of industrial operations by providing relevant and timely information on the status of physical assets via condition and process monitoring systems, and by enabling the effective use of data by systems and processes that restore proper...
Gallium nitride (GaN) high-electron mobility transistors (HEMTs) have great potential for high-power and high-frequency applications, but current leakage issues compromise their reliability. This research focuses on developing GaN metal-oxide semiconductor field-effect transistors (MOSFETs),...
The increasing level of system complexity in the current competitive market implies that efficient asset management is of paramount importance, particularly for systems with costly downtime and failure. Timely detection of faults and failures through an efficient reliability and health management...
Evaluating the Performance of the Uncorrected and Corrected Reliability Alpha for Range Restriction and the Confidence Intervals in a Single and Meta-Analytic StudyDownload
Range restriction has long been a methodological problem in educational and psychological research (Hunter & Schmidt, 2004), and this usually leads to a downward-biased estimate of a statistic. Even though much research has examined the performance of Pearson’s correlation under range restriction...
Pneumatic tires are costly components of large off-road haul trucks used in surface mining operations. Tires are prone to premature damage during operation which can lead to hazard events and injury of personnel, loss of equipment and reduced productivity. Currently, monitoring of tire condition...
Commonly in clinical settings, the patient’s posture is visually evaluated by the clinician using anatomical landmark references. However, this measurement is subjective and not quantifiable. Photogrammetry to assess posture was thought to be a possible good clinical alternative to the other...
Because of their high strength to weight ratio, stiffened steel plates are often used in light structures where plates are placed into compression. The stability of steel plates stiffened with longitudinal tee-shaped stiffeners and subjected to uniaxial compression or combined axial compression...
