help eighth-grade students prepare for Catholic high school entrance exams by providing six full-length practice tests for the Cooperative Admissions Examination (COOP), the High School Placement Test (HSPT
), and the Test for Admission into Catholic High Schools (TACHS).
* Is there any difference between the students preparing for the HSPT and those preparing for UEE in terms of test anxiety?
There were 319 (45.1%) students (12 to 14 years old) preparing for HSPT (6th and 8th grade), and 389 (54.9%) students (16 to 19 years old) who were preparing for UEE.
Results in Table 5 show that HSPT students' test anxiety mean was significantly higher than that of UEE students.
According to these results, HSPT students' learned helplessness levels were considerably higher than those of UEE students.
* Overall engine performance validation, including testing to simulate the HSPT flow function.
Secondly, the LM2500+G4 gas generator coupled with the HSPT was validated at GE Oil & Gas facilities in Massa, Italy, covering all conditions for mechanical drive and generator drive applications.
Particular attention was dedicated to gaining a full understanding of the overall engine performance by comparing measurements and results of the G4 gas generator testing in Evendale and previous 1997 testing of the original PGT25+ HSPT.
Following the engine tests, an engine teardown included a boroscope inspection of the gas generator and a visual inspection of all HSPT components, including in-situ gaps/ clearances measurements, and inspection of all power turbine rotor buckets and nozzles, to confirm the absence of defects or design flaws and confirm consistency with PGT25+ field experience.
