Part of the reason could be the perception that child health is but a by-product of education rather than a factor that could determine educational outcomes. This report casts doubt on this perception by critically examining the evidence on the effect of health on education in industrialized countries. Based on seemingly......

Performance Monitoring

...Performance Monitoring Author Note This paper is being submitted on September 12, 2013, for N234/CET2810C Section 01 Microsoft Exchange Server course. Performance Monitoring Exchange Server monitoring aims to optimize the performance and availability of the Microsoft Exchange messaging environment. Exchange Server monitoring tools track data that can direct the resolution of operational issues to simplify administration. An Exchange Server monitoring tool allows administrators to improve productivity and control costs. When you are troubleshooting or optimizing a server for performance, you can use performance monitoring to track the activities of Exchange messaging components. Performance Monitor graphically displays statistics for the set of performance parameters you’ve selected for display. These performance parameters are referred to as counters. Performance Monitor displays information for only the counters you’re tracking (TechNet, 2011). Thousands of counters are available, and these counters are organized into groupings called performance objects. When you install Exchange Server 2010 on a computer, Performance Monitor is updated with a set of objects and counters for tracking Exchange performance (Microsoft, 2010). You’ll find dozens of related performance objects for everything from the Microsoft Exchange Availability Service to the Microsoft Exchange Journaling Agent to Microsoft Exchange Outlook Web Access. There are a few third party vendors out......

Need for Monitoring and Evaluation

...Need for monitoring and evaluation of projects: 1. Provide constant feedback Monitoring and evaluation provides constant feedback on the extent to which the projects are achieving their goals. It also helps in checking for projects strengths and weaknesses, from the feedback elicited. 2. Identify potential problems Monitoring and evaluation helps in identifying potential problems at an early stage and propose possible solutions. 3. Monitor the accessibility of the project to all sectors of the target population. 4. Monitor the efficiency with which the different components of the project are being implemented and suggest improvements.Did it work or not, and why? How could it be done differently for better results? The interest is on what works, why and in what context. Decision makers, such as managers, use evaluations to make necessary improvements, adjustments to the implementation approach or strategies, and to decide on alternatives. Evaluations addressing these questions need to provide concrete information on how improvements could be made or what alternatives exist to address the necessary improvements. 5. Evaluate the extent to which the project is able to achieve its general objectives. 6. Provide guidelines for the planning of future projects (Bamberger 4). 7. Influence sector assistance strategy. Relevant analysis from project and policy evaluation can highlight the outcomes of previous interventions, and the strengths and weaknesses of their......

They all have different strength and weaknesses that need to be weigh up carefully to fit the technique to the situation. The techniques investigated are: · International Country Risk Guide (ICRG) uses different variables to measure a country’s creditworthiness and estimate its ability and willingness to comply with its financial obligations. · Contribution Analysis (CA) is a logic model that evaluates the degree of contribution that the intervention is making to the observed measures. · Measuring Progress in Conflict Environments (MPICE) measures the effectiveness of diplomatic, military, and development efforts · Conflict Sensitivity Monitoring and Evaluation provides a detailed understanding of the conflicts context.

Performance Evaluation

...As you requested, I have finished my evaluation of Kyle Houston, who works as management consultants in Anders. I suggest that you have a second thought about promoting Kyle as the team leader in Dallas. My opinion is based on the observation of his performance during the three months' strategic planning with a division of RPG Financial Services. The ratings and evaluations collected from 15 team members, with whom Kyle worked during the last three months, support my observation. The ratings in the evaluation cover three aspects in Kyle’s performance in team works: contributing, listening, and the facilitating group problem solving. Kyle’s ability in team working is evaluated fairly according to these aspects. Kyle has an open characteristic, which attributes to his high rating in contributing part of the evaluations with four of the rating score at three points.. Kyle is very enthusiastic and passion in his work. Many of the evaluations point out that Kyle is willing to provide his own opinions and never gets lazy on his jobs. In short, he is the most active, even aggressive member in the team. However, from my observation, he puts quantity before quality of his ideas. From the very beginning to the end of a meeting, he would raise his hand to express his own perspective every three minutes. He is very initiative and has a lot of ideas, but he expresses them so soon that some of the ideas seem to lack considerations. This behavior would lead to greater proportion of low......

Harlem Children Zone

...Memo Date: March 26, 2015 To: Harlem Children’s Zone Executive Committee From: MITA Consulting Group Re. Strategic Analysis and Recommendations: Per your request, MITA Consulting Group has prepared the following analysis of The Harlem Children’s Zone (HCZ) strategies. HCZ’s main strategic focuses’ have included penetrating the zone, tracking performance, building the organizational team, expanding boundaries, and informing the field through governance and open communication to other organizations and policy-makers. The imperatives have enabled HCZ to continue to focus and build upon its set vision of actively helping children while building a scalable and replicable model. Although we agree with this holistic approach, our analysis indicates that three major strategic issues exist that are hindering long term growth capitalization. The issues are: 1. HCZ is struggling to create a culture of effective measurement and analysis. They are plagued with information silos and technology gaps that make it difficult for program directors to create any ​ significant​ actionable insights through the data. 2. HCZ’s ten year vision is to reach $46 million in revenues, serve 24,000 people, and expand to an area three times the size of its current zone. However, a growth strategy solely focused on zone expansion will not allow them to reach this vision. Tigist’s suggestion to reword: 2  HCZ’s growth strategy solely focused on zone expansion will prohibit 3. HCZ’s shift from a......

Performance Evaluation

...Topic: Analyzing Performance Evaluations involves evaluating three characteristics: a Bank’s liquidity, profitability and efficiency. A short-term creditor, such as a bank, is primarily interested in liquidity---the ability of the borrower to pay obligations when they come due. The liquidity of the borrower is extremely important in evaluating the safety of a loan. A long-term creditor, such as a bondholder, looks to profitability and solvency measures that indicate the Bank’s ability to survive over a long period of time. Long-term creditors consider such measures as the amount of debt in the Bank’s capital structure and its ability to meet interest payments. Similarly, stockholders look at the profitability and solvency of the Bank. They want to assess the likelihood of dividends and the growth potential of the stock. Performance managers review and analyze the firm’s Performance Evaluations periodically, both to uncover developing problems and to assess the firm’s progress toward achieving its goal. These actions are aimed at preserving and creating value for the firm’s owner. Performance ratios enable Performance managers to monitors the pulse of the firm and its progress towards its strategic goals. Although Performance Evaluations and Performance ratios rely on accrual concepts, they can provide useful insights into important aspects of risk and return that affect share price, which management is attempting to maximize. Performance Evaluation analysis is a......

This is to be achieved by placing a duty on local authorities to create 129 r 2006 The Authors Journal compilation r 2006 The Howard League Published by Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 9600 Garsington Road, Oxford OX4 2DQ, UK The Howard Journal Vol 45 No 2.

Cautioning and the Final Warning Scheme Police cautioning for youth in England and Wales changed with the advent of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998. It was no longer appropriate for youth to receive repeated cautions for acts of anti-social and offending behaviour considered not serious enough for the young person to be charged and processed formerly through the court system (Nacro 2000a). Over time, the established cautioning approach was seen as unsuitable and the concept of warnings with various interventions was soon practised successfully under the title of ‘cautioning plus’ (Home Office 1997; Leng, Taylor and Wasik 1998). This approach offered police some discretion and when officers felt that greater intervention was required to help a young person, they could refer them to various programmes with the remit of addressing offending behaviour and possible welfare concerns. These interventions covered a......
