Abstract

Abstract Assessment is an essential part in teaching and learning process as it usually provides opportunities both for teachers and students to learn. In the context of second or foreign language teaching, assessment is usually conducted to elicit information regarding students’ second language ability. This paper reports and analyzes the results of an interview with a university lecturer in Central Sulawesi who was once involved in the construction of a test to place students in different classroom levels. Although it is apparent from the analysis that there are several weaknesses found in the placement test viewed from the six qualities proposed by Bachman and Palmer (1996), there are other essential aspects that need to be learned from the results of the interview by second or foreign language teachers in other teaching contexts. Keywords: assessment, placement test, washback

Abstract

Metoda mengamati warna urin sudah dilakukan sejak lama untuk melengkapi diagnosa penyakit yang diderita seorang pasien. Pengamatan dengan panca indra vision manusia dilakukan untuk meneliti dan menganalisa warna urin seseorang dan menghubungkannya dengan penyakit yang diderita pasien tersebut. Fungsi vision manusia dapat digantikan dengan sistem komputer yang dilengkapi dengan alat yang mampu mendeteksi warna seperti kamera maupun jenis sensor warna lainnya. Warna objek dapat dibedakan dengan menguraikan komponen warna objek tersebut berupa komponen warna dalam domain frekuensi maupun dalam domain spasial. Hal ini dimungkinkan karena setiap warna memiliki nilai panjang gelombang tertentu dan dituangkan dalam nilai frekuensi. Sensor warna TCS 3200 menghasilkan sinyal output dengan frekuensi yang berbeda berdasarkan warna yang discan oleh foto dioda pada sensor tersebut. pengenalan suatu objek ditandai dengan bentuk, warna dan variable lainnya dari objek tersebut. Ekstrak ciri dari suatu objek dapat dituangkan dalam bentuk pola data maupun histogram yang mencirikan warna objek tersebut. Penelitian ini bertujuan untuk membuat histogram dan pola data warna urin berdasarkan indikasi kondisi yang diderita seorang pasien. Sebagai acuan warna yang digunakan adalah warna dasar urinalisis hasil penelitian di Cleveland Clinic, di Ohio tahun 2013. Dari hasil penelitian telah didapatkan pola data dan histogram warna yang berbeda berdasarkan warna urin yang dideteksi. Diharapkan hasil penelitian ini dapat digunakan pada proses identifikasi penyakit melalui warna urin secara online.

The solution is formulated in the form of a workshop and coaching for karangtaruna members (youth association) to practice English verbal proficiency by drilling and repetition method. At the end of this society service, the results are (1) Positive response and enthusiasm from youth association in Jedong village Wagir district. (2) Improved awareness of the benefit of English verbal proficiency. (3) Willingness to take a risk in participating. (4) Improved glossary, grammar, pronunciation,and spelling of verbal English and not ambiguous. (5) Improved chance to listen to native speaker’s voice recording. (6) Improved chance to practice verbal English in the monologue (self-introduction), in pairs and mingle (talking in turns with all participants in a dynamic and fun/not boringatmosphere. (7) Learning media with mp3 native speaker voice recording becomes available. (8) Youth association members can be facilitated to listen to native speaker’s voice recording, imitating and independent self-practice in their spare time. (9) Online webs become accessible to browse and download learning media files for future learning after this society service comes to its end. Keywords:Drilling and Repetition, Improving Verbal English Proficiency.

Abstract

Tujuan dari pembuatan alat ini adalah untuk membangun komunikasi data untuk pengumpulan informasi mengenai kondisi suhu kelembaban dan penggunakan energy listrik Anechoic Chamber di laboratorium Antena, serta menyediakan interface bagi pengelola sistem sehingga meraka mampu melakukan monitoring secara online. Sensor yang digunakan pada alat ini sensor DHT untuk suhu dan kelembaban serta sensor CT untuk pembacaan arus listrik. Data sensor kemudian disimpan di database SQL dan dapat ditampilkan pada web browser. Keunggulan dari alat ini data dapat di ambil dalam kurun waktu yang cukup lama , karena data tersimpan dalam database manager selain itu pengelola laboratorium dengan mudah mengetahui kondisi suhu dan energy listrik yang digunakan suatu ruangan tanpa harus datang membawa alat ukur ke ruangan tersebut. Dengan adanya alat ini dapat membantu pengelola laboratorium dalam melakukan perawatan anechoic chamber.

Abstract

Microprocessor and microcontroller laboratories are type III laboratories that are in the electronics engineering study program majoring in electrical engineering, this laboratory serves the activities of student practices for microprocessor system courses, microcontroller systems and interfaces I and II and very large scale intergration (VLSI) programmable logic devices and programmable electronics. Laboran as manager and person in charge of the laboratory, every month submits reports on equipment support facilities and practice modules made manually to the head of the laboratory. Every day the laboratory staff must examine all equipment activities one by one such as computers and practice modules to find out the latest conditions. Seeing the problems above, we need a system solution that can provide fast, accurate, complete and integrated information as a whole. The purpose of this study is to produce an information system design for maintenance and repairs to microprocessor and microcontroller laboratories. The method used in this study analyzes the current system to create a conceptual model so as to produce a database diagram. Next, the design of the display includes the design of the application interface such as the reporter display, laboratory performance reports etc. To further maximize laboratory use and quality teaching and learning is expected that students, lecturers and staff will also participate by reporting damage to supporting facilities at the microprocessor and microcontroller laboratory.
