Bob Lenz Transforming Schools Using Project-Based Learning, Performance Assessment, and Common Core Standards
It's not what students know, but what they do with what they know that is important Schools are changing in response to this reality, and in Transforming Schools Using Project-Based Learning, Performance Assessment, and Common Core Standards, Bob Lenz, Justin Wells, and Sally Kingston draw on the example of the Envision Education schools, as well as other leading schools around the country, to show how the concept of deeper learning can meet the need for students who are both college and career ready and engaged in their own education. In this book, the authors explain how project-based learning can blend with Common Core-aligned performance assessment for deeper learning. You'll discover how many schools have successfully made the transition from traditional, teacher-centered learning to project-based, deeper learning and find many practical ideas for implementation. Companion DVD and website include videos showing how to implement deeper learning strategies in the classroom Evidence-based descriptions show why deeper learning is right for students Performance assessment experts explain how to align assessments with Common Core by shifting the emphasis from knowing to doing Extensive game plan section provides step-by-step guidance for change Schools are complex organizations, and transformation involves all of the stakeholders, from students to superintendents. But as this book shows, there are amazing benefits to be realized when everyone commits to diving deeper into learning.
Overcome ERM implementation challenges by taking cues from leading global organizations Implementing Enterprise Risk Management is a practical guide to establishing an effective ERM system by applying best practices at a granular level. Case studies of leading organizations including Mars, Statoil, LEGO, British Columbia Lottery Corporation, and Astro illustrate the real-world implementation of ERM on a macro level, while also addressing how ERM informs the response to specific incidents. Readers will learn how top companies are effectively constructing ERM systems to positively drive financial growth and manage operational and outside risk factors. By addressing the challenges of adopting ERM in large organizations with different functioning silos and well-established processes, this guide provides expert insight into fitting the new framework into cultures resistant to change. Enterprise risk management covers accidental losses as well as financial, strategic, operational, and other risks. Recent economic and financial market volatility has fueled a heightened interest in ERM, and regulators and investors have begun to scrutinize companies' risk-management policies and procedures. Implementing Enterprise Risk Management provides clear, demonstrative instruction on establishing a strong, effective system. Readers will learn to: Put the right people in the right places to build a strong ERM framework Establish an ERM system in the face of cultural, logistical, and historical challenges Create a common language and reporting system for communicating key risk indicators Create a risk-aware culture without discouraging beneficial risk-taking behaviors ERM is a complex endeavor, requiring expert planning, organization, and leadership, with the goal of steering a company's activities in a direction that minimizes the effects of risk on financial value and performance. Corporate boards are increasingly required to review and report on the adequacy of ERM in the organizations they administer, and Implementing Enterprise Risk Management offers operative guidance for creating a program that will pass muster.
Financial globalization has given an impetus to the development and innovation in financial products. However, at the same time, it has complicated banking regulations and its consequent risk management mechanisms. The GFC and consequent Basel III have accentuated the importance of operational risk management manifold by adding new perspectives to the concept which was not identified properly under sophisticated and graded risk assessment processes in the years before the financial crisis of 2008. The main contribution of this book is providing a comprehensive analysis on various aspects of operational risk including: the evolution of the concept, its development and its treatment under Basel I, II and now under Basel III Accords. Historical operational risk events, evidence from case laws and regulatory responses to the crisis have been analysed to assess the procedural justice and distributive equity of various decisions made and regulations enforced. The ultimate objective is to make recommendations for a sound banking regulatory mechanism that supports stability and can reconcile with financial innovations in the globalized financial markets.

Following the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001, there has been a major worldwide focus on the threat of terrorism to trade, transportation and critical infrastructures. One area that has received particular attention is maritime trade and international shipping. The relative vulnerability of ports, ships, containers, and other maritime facilities worldwide combined with the importance of maritime trade to the global economy have resulted in several international and national measures to manage security risks in this area. This study examines in detail the intrinsic factors within the shipping industry that contribute to its vulnerability or resilience, the underlying dynamics of security responses, as well as their cost and effectiveness. Gaps in the effectiveness of these security measures are identified and possible remedial measures are suggested. This multidisciplinary study is based on the concepts of securitization from the political science domain and risk management principles from business studies, and is an attempt at reaching across disciplines to examine this important topic of contemporary interest.
Robust management of liquidity risk within the changing regulatory framework Liquidity Management applies current risk management theory, techniques, and processes to liquidity risk control and management to help organizations prepare in case of future economic crisis and changing regulatory framework. Based on extensive research conducted on banks' datasets, this book addresses the practical challenges and critical issues that frequently go unmentioned, and discusses the recent impact of sovereign crises on banks' liquidity processes and approaches. Market practices and regulatory stances are reviewed and compared to bank treasuries' response to liquidity crunches, refinancing risks are explored in the context of Basel 3, and alternative funding is analyzed in terms of resilience and allocation. Coverage includes the recent crisis, new regulations, and the techniques, processes, and strategies banks use in managing liquidity risk. The 2008 and 2010 crises brought liquidity risk out of the shadows as even profitable and well-capitalized banks were swept away with breathtaking speed. This book reviews modeling and internal process design in the context of the structural change in market conditions on banks' refinancing and control requirements, helping readers rethink and re-design their organization's approach to liquidity risk. Understand the new liquidity regulatory framework and the implications for banks Study the latest liquidity measurement models, with stress testing and scenario analysis Discover the effect of illiquid financing markets and possible lasting impacts Compare market liquidity and warning signals that detect further deterioration With much of the world still reeling from history, it's important that liquidity risk become a major focus going forward. This practical guide provides valuable information, but also real, actionable steps that can be taken today to forecast and mitigate risks with an eye toward greater stability and security. Liquidity Management is a thorough, comprehensive guide to a more robust management of liquidity risk.
Ammonia plants run 24/7 days operations. With these operating conditions, the equipment needs repairs and refurbishments to improve their efficiency and reliability in capital-intensive projects. The risks are expected with the large number of planned and unplanned activities to be accomplished in the project. The supply chain supporting the project is embedded with risks. A number of risk management systems are applicable for projects and supply chain risks – but none designed specifically for the ammonia industry. A conceptual model, called the experiential risk planning model was developed from theoretical ones and experiential input from supply chain professionals in the industry. The robustness of the model was ascertained by the supply chain professionals. Each component of the model can independently help the supply chain professional plan for the supply chain risks associated with the refurbishment project. When the effects of the components are combined, the supply chain professionals benefit from their elemental synergies in planning for the risks.
Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (DRRM) has been a popular topic of discussion in recent years due to the increase in the intensity and occurrence of disaster events. Local institutions play a significant role in DRRM particularly in planning and implementing disaster risk management mechanisms and in establishing consolidated efforts aimed at preparing for, responding to, and mitigating impacts of disasters. This paper explored the DRRM initiatives of the Local Government Units (LGUs) of Tigbauan and Guimbal in Iloilo, Philippines and identified and analyzed the the coping mechanism of the households to recurrent and extreme events. This paper contends that DRRM is not a stand-alone solution to the problems faced by the communities, rather, it needs to be integrated with other long term development plans of the local government, i.e. Coastal Resource Management (CRM), in order for it to be more effective.

A lack of competence in crisis management has been shown to be a causal factor in a number of recent maritime accidents. In safety critical industries other than commercial shipping, such as civil aviation, nuclear and offshore, research is being undertaken to identify behavioural markers that can be used to assess competence in crisis management. Although there is now general acceptance of the core concepts for the non-technical or resource management skills required for competence in crisis management, there is also an acceptance that the behaviours associated with these skills are context specific. This book reviews current practice in using behavioural markers for assessing competence in crisis management. The differences between the assessment frameworks in which behavioural markers are currently being used for this assessment are discussed. This book presents a set of behavioural markers that can be used to assess competence in crisis management within the context of a merchant vessel’s engine room control room. The book concludes that these behavioural markers can be used as a valid objective assessment framework for the assessment of competence in crisis management.
Written by leading market risk academic, Professor Carol Alexander, Practical Financial Econometrics forms part two of the "Market Risk Analysis" four volume set. It introduces the econometric techniques that are commonly applied to finance with a critical and selective exposition, emphasising the areas of econometrics, such as GARCH, cointegration and copulas that are required for resolving problems in market risk analysis. The book covers material for a one-semester graduate course in applied financial econometrics in a very pedagogical fashion as each time a concept is introduced an empirical example is given, and whenever possible this is illustrated with an Excel spreadsheet. All together, the "Market Risk Analysis" four volume set illustrates virtually every concept or formula with a practical, numerical example or a longer, empirical case study. Across all four volumes there are approximately 300 numerical and empirical examples, 400 graphs and figures and 30 case studies many of which are contained in interactive Excel spreadsheets available from the the accompanying CD-ROM . Empirical examples and case studies specific to this volume include: Factor analysis with orthogonal regressions and using principal component factors; Estimation of symmetric and asymmetric, normal and Student t GARCH and E-GARCH parameters; Normal, Student t, Gumbel, Clayton, normal mixture copula densities, and simulations from these copulas with application to VaR and portfolio optimization; Principal component analysis of yield curves with applications to portfolio immunization and asset/liability management; Simulation of normal mixture and Markov switching GARCH returns; Cointegration based index tracking and pairs trading, with error correction and impulse response modelling; Markov switching regression models (Eviews code); GARCH term structure forecasting with volatility targeting; Non-linear quantile regressions with applications to hedging.
The effective risk management is an important management tool and it can increase the likelihood of project success. It is necessary applying risk management processes onto projects software engineering, because there are many problems associated with software engineering. These problems may lead cancellation of system development or they do the development of system become unsatisfactory or unacceptable to the client. The risk identification is a primary activity of management, because the list generated is applied in all processes from risk control. This study proposes to build an expert system for identification of risk based on lessons learned of similar projects to help don't repeat the errors.
