Writing Tests
It is no secret that today’s workforce no longer consists entirely of people. Rather, machines are being developed to complete many of the tasks which humans have traditionally done. This can greatly increase productivity and efficiency of simple, repetitive tasks. Many people view this as a great positive and point out that it leads to a more uniform and less expensive product which is better for everyone. However, some people are more wary of this popular trend of automating the workforce and question whether this progress is truely positive. Their concerns, though, are outweighed by the benefits these machines offer.
It is the popular view among companies which are moving toward automation that robots can do many tasks better than humans. For example, in the automotive industry, most of a car’s individual components are manufactured by pre-programmed robots which have much greater and more precise output than would be possible for a human. In addition, robots cut down the cost of production by a considerable amount. If a company hires an employee to complete a simple task for $50,000 per year but could instead buy a machine for a one time purchase of $30,000, it is far more cost effective to buy the machine. Lower cost of production means that the goods produced can now be sold at a lower pricepoint which passes the savings on to the consumer. Companies producing goods rightly contend that the use of machines to complete low-skill jobs has only positive impact for everyone.
Beyond these benefits for industry, some believe that machines will shape the future for the human race. Innovation and invention of new more intelligent machines can push us as humans toward new, unimagined possibilities. For example, before the first airplane was invented, people could only dream of human flight, but at the moment of takeoff, a whole new world of unimaginable…...

...for each wrong answer. If correct, the teacher would read the next word pair.[1] The subjects believed that for each wrong answer, the learner was receiving actual shocks. In reality, there were no shocks. After the confederate was separated from the subject, the confederate set up a tape recorder integrated with the electro-shock generator, which played pre-recorded sounds for each shock level. After a number of voltage level increases, the actor started to bang on the wall that separated him from the subject. After several times banging on the wall and complaining about his heart condition, all responses by the learner would cease.[1] At this point, many people indicated their desire to stop the experiment and check on the learner. Some test subjects paused at 135 volts and began to question the purpose of the experiment. Most continued after being assured that they would not be held responsible. A few subjects began to laugh nervously or exhibit other signs of extreme stress once they heard the screams of pain coming from the learner.[1] If at any time the subject indicated his desire to halt the experiment, he was given a succession of verbal prods by the experimenter, in this order:[1] 1. Please continue. 2. The experiment requires that you continue. 3. It is absolutely essential that you continue. 4. You have no other choice, you must go on. If the subject still wished to stop after all four successive verbal prods, the experiment was halted.......

...This is only a test of the site. There is not a real paper here. Good luck. I am just typing to get to two hundred and fifty words so that I can join this. I have never signed up with this company and I am not sure if it real or not. I hope that I can contribute the body of knowledge at some time but if it is a scam then I don’t want to do much here. I hope others like this site and I usually have found some essays, not good ones, from 247 custom writing. This was related to one on my management classes. The essays were real drafts but they gave me a jumping start and then I went into a real investigation and research project on most if not all of them. My last few had over 10 references and even up to 20. The topics are great in my class and I appreciate what I am learning in it as well. I hope to begin my overall research project soon, but at this time I am only in my third class with the University of Phoenix and I am loving it. It is flexible and the professors are great. I hope to meet some of them beyond the virtual classroom to thank them personally for my education. I am hoping to graduate with my PhD in under five years, but that may be too tall an order to complete my research and defend my thesis. I have a topic in mind, but still need more classes before I really begin and then I have to select an advisor and find other professors to sit on my committee. It is an arduous process but one that I am looking forward to in a few year....

...Timed Test, Short Answer Test, Analysis Test, and Personal Essay Test. Each of them has different range of difficulty, based on how long the time needed to finish them. Let us take a look of these brief explanations about the four types of assessment, before we decide which one is the easiest to do. TIMED TEST Timed test is the type of assessment in which you will be given limited time to answer the questions. The test does not care how many questions you get wrong, but rather how many you get right. Many students don’t do well on timed tests because they get stuck on a question or spend too much time on each question, as they want to make sure it is correct, but they end up running out of time. Timed Test will actually help students to manage their time well. Let’s say, students are given 100 questions in 100 minutes. It means they have one minute at the most to answer each question. They have to make sure they don’t exceed one minute time otherwise they will get less time to finish the next questions. In this kind of test, students are expected to work fast, and not doing too much thinking on the same question. The goal is to finish the test no matter what. SHORT ANSWER TEST Short answer test are open-ended questions that require students to create an answer. They are commonly used in examinations to assess the basic knowledge and understanding (low cognitive levels) of a topic before more in-depth assessment questions are asked on the topic. Short answer tests do......

...IELTS Writing Test Our latest factsheet gives you examples and ways to prepare and practise for your IELTS exam.  Here is task number two which focuses on writing: The infographic* below, based on a 2009 survey, shows US residents’ opinions on the recovery of the housing market following the decline of prices in 2006-7 and the international financial crisis of 2008-9. Summarise the information and make comparisons where relevant. Write at least 150 words. You should spend around 20 minutes on this task. *Infographic by Truliavisuals, courtesy of Creative Common Answer one: The United States experienced a housing bubble, prior to the international financial crisis of 2008. Prices peaked in 2006 and started to decline in 2006-2007. US economic experts believe it was one of the main causes of the 2008-2009 recession, when several major financial institutions collapsed. This infographic, based on a survey carried out in 2009, shows US residents’ views on the recovery of the housing market. At the time of the survey, 4% of respondents believed the housing market had already recovered. Only 1% of respondents indicated that the property market would recover in 2010. While 10% of US citizens believed that the market would pick up in 2011, there was more optimism for 2012 and 2013, with 27% and 23% respectively. Surprisingly, only 12% of respondents expressed optimism in 2014, while 25% estimated recovery in 2015 or later. Opinions appear very much divided, as shown by the......

...Should machines be used to do good and services instead humans? I believe they should not for many reasons. Machines can not be smart unless a human is controling it. So it would not matter if its an intelligent machine or not a human is still controlling it to do everything. When using a machine it could easily malfunction and it could be hard to fix the problem or it will just take a while to fix it. If a human is taking over instead of the machine there may be fewer problems. Machines have so many problems that it would not be worth having. Also, the more machines you have the less jobs there are for people because everyone thinks it would be better to have machines instead of people. When less people are out of work that means less money for those people and sometimes they will lose their homes or cars because they can not afford anything. Sometimes working with machines can be very stressful because they may not work at times or they could be running extremely slow and won’t get anything done. Machines are not smart at all, only when people are controlling them they are but not all the time. It may seem smart but its really not. In conclusion, I think machines should not be used to take over a human job because machines can not think only humans can think and make right or wrong decisions. Machines do not have brains, their not wired to think so why have them do stuff that we can do ourselves....

...the dilemma will become obvious to you. In more complicated cases it is helpful to be able to work through the steps of an ethical decision making model, and to assess which of these moral principles may be in conflict. Ethical Decision Making Model We have incorporated the work of Van Hoose and Paradise (1979), Kitchener (1984), Stadler (1986), Haas and Malouf (1989), Forester-Miller and Rubenstein (1992), and Sileo and Kopala (1993) into a practical, sequential, seven step, ethical decision making model. A description and discussion of the steps follows. 1. Identify the Problem. Gather as much information as you can that will illuminate the situation. In doing so, it is important to be as specific and objective as possible. Writing ideas on paper may help you gain clarity. Outline the facts, separating out innuendos, assumptions, hypotheses, or suspicions. There are several questions you can ask yourself: Is it an ethical, legal, professional, or clinical problem? Is it a combination of more than one of these? If a legal question exists, seek legal advice. Other questions that it may be useful to ask yourself are: Is the issue related to me and what I am or am not doing? Is it related to a client and/or the client's significant others and what they are or are not doing? Is it related to the institution or agency and their policies and procedures? If the problem can be resolved by implementing a policy of an institution or agency, you can look to the......

...1130 January 2016 A Writing Experience Writing has never been my forte. At best, I survived the earlier years of my school life with average remarks from English teachers who assessed me. However, due to a lack of confidence in my own writing, English classes became incredibly difficult in my final years of high-school. Attempting to obtain better grades, I recall trying to absorb the almost formulaic method of writing my grade 11 and 12 teachers taught, and applied it. Nevertheless, I understood that this method was clearly not improving anything when I received my mark for the English 12 provincial. Being ill prepared for post-secondary writing is not a situation unique to myself. Rather, it is a common phenomenon for student writers of my generation. As mentioned, many student writers of my generation suffer from the same lack of proper writing education as I did when stepping into the world of post-secondary. In fact, recent studies suggest that the writing process being primed into student writers like myself during high-school is too linear, and fails to prepare them for the level of writing post-secondary schools demand for. This is because student writers are being educated to “separate the writing process into discrete stages” (Sommers 135). Moreover, due to the linear nature of current models of the writing process taught in schools, students tend to write in ways that resemble speech and as a result, neglect an important stage in writing: revision. ......
