1. Lu, Chiao-Hui. The pregnancy outcomes for human embryos cultured in single step medium and sequential medium.

Degree: Master, Biological Sciences, 2014, NSYSU

Since Louise Joy Brown, the first baby of In Vitro Fertilization-Embryo Transfer (IVF-ET), was born in the United Kingdom in 1978, there had been over five million successful cases over the course of 35 years. There are two commercially available culture media in the market: Single Step Medium (Global Medium) and Sequential Medium (Sage Medium). The development of these two media had enhanced the quality of embryo and increased the pregnancy rate in IVF-ET. In this collection of 210 cases of IVF-ET, oocytes were fertilized by intracytoplasmic sperm injectionï¼ICSIï¼and randomly assigned to the two commercially-available culture media. The quantity and quality of embryos were observed and recorded for three consecutive days in order to compare the development of embryos in the two commercial culture medium. A fertilized rate of 75.5% in Global Medium and 77.5% in Sage Medium were observed on the first day. There was a higher number of cleaved cells in Global Medium and embryos of Grade 1 cells than those in Sage Medium both on the 2nd and the 3rd day, though no significant differences were noted in the pregnancy rates between the two samples. In the group of those over 38 years old, there was a higher number of cells in Global Medium, but exhibited no difference in either embryonic pattern or in the pregnancy rate. Though the development of commercial culture medium had enabled a longer cultivation, some cases still failed be cultured to the blastocytic stage due to other limitations. It had been attempted with morphologic selection in embryos by the 3rd day of culture, with a criteria of over six cells per embryo and minimal cell fragmentation, to reach compatible pregnancy rate of embryo implantation of the 5th day by conventional method. Our study indicated that the there was higher number of Grade 1 embryos with more than 6 cells and lower embryo fragmentation in Single Step Medium, thus yielded a better overall quality of embryo than Sequential Medium. It can be speculated, therefore, that the Single Step Medium would offer a valuable choice in patients with difficulty in reaching blastocytic stage by conventional method due to various factors.

2. Herman, Geoffrey L. The development of a digital logic concept inventory.

Degree: PhD, 1200, 2011, University of Illinois – Urbana-Champaign

Instructors in electrical and computer engineering and in computer science have developed innovative methods to teach digital logic circuits. These methods attempt to increase student learning, satisfaction, and retention. Although there are readily accessible and accepted means for measuring satisfaction and retention, there are no widely accepted means for assessing student learning. Rigorous assessment of learning is elusive because differences in topic coverage, curriculum and course goals, and exam content prevent direct comparison of two teaching methods when using tools such as final exam scores or course grades. Because of these difficulties, computing educators have issued a general call for the adoption of assessment tools to critically evaluate and compare the various teaching methods. Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education researchers commonly measure students' conceptual learning to compare how much different pedagogies improve learning. Conceptual knowledge is often preferred because all engineering courses should teach a fundamental set of concepts even if they emphasize design or analysis to different degrees. Increasing conceptual learning is also important, because students who can organize facts and ideas within a consistent conceptual framework are able to learn new information quickly and can apply what they know in new situations. If instructors can accurately assess their students' conceptual knowledge, they can target instructional interventions to remedy common problems. To properly assess conceptual learning, several researchers have developed concept inventories (CIs) for core subjects in engineering sciences. CIs are multiple-choice assessment tools that evaluate how well a student's conceptual framework matches the accepted conceptual framework of a discipline or common faulty conceptual frameworks. We present how we created and evaluated the digital logic concept inventory (DLCI). We used a Delphi process to identify the important and difficult concepts to include on the DLCI. To discover and describe common student misconceptions, we interviewed students who had completed a digital logic course. Students vocalized their thoughts as they solved digital logic problems. We analyzed the interview data using a qualitative grounded theory approach. We have administered the DLCI at several institutions and have checked the validity, reliability, and bias of the DLCI with classical testing theory procedures. These procedures consisted of follow-up interviews with students, analysis of administration results with statistical procedures, and expert feedback. We discuss these results and present the DLCI's potential for providing a meaningful tool for comparing student learning at different institutions. Advisors/Committee Members: Loui, Michael C.

3. Akbar, Zeeshan. Evaluation of AODV and DSR Routing Protocols of Wireless Sensor Networks for Monitoring Applications.

Degree: 2009, , School of Computing

Deployment of sensor networks are increasing either manually or randomly to monitor physical environments in different applications such as military, agriculture, medical transport, industry etc. In monitoring of physical environments, the most important application of wireless sensor network is monitoring of critical conditions. The most important in monitoring application like critical condition is the sensing of information during emergency state from the physical environment where the network of sensors is deployed. In order to respond within a fraction of seconds in case of critical conditions like explosions, fire and leaking of toxic gases, there must be a system which should be fast enough. A big challenge to sensor networks is a fast, reliable and fault tolerant channel during emergency conditions to sink (base station) that receives the events. The main focus of this thesis is to discuss and evaluate the performance of two different routing protocols like Ad hoc On Demand Distance Vector (AODV) and Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) for monitoring of critical conditions with the help of important metrics like throughput and end-to-end delay in different scenarios. On the basis of results derived from simulation a conclusion is drawn on the comparison between these two different routing protocols with parameters like end-to-end delay and throughput.

In all the three scenarios of small, large and very large networks AODV gives considerably less delay as compared to DSR. AODV outperforms DSR with prominent difference in delay. In terms of delay the network size has an impact on both AODV and DSR performance.  The throughput rate of AODV in small and large networks exceeds with a little margin than the throughput rate of DSR but in case of large networks the difference is prominent and AODV by far performs better than DSR.
