Oracle initialization parameters : pocket reference by David C Kreines( Book )

6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Oracle designed its database products to be flexible and configurable so they would operate on a variety of hardware platforms, and they succeeded--Oracle software runs on more than seventy computer platforms, from mainframes to PC networks to handheld PDAs. The secret to this flexibility lies in the software's initialization parameters, whose numerous settings can be configured for top performance in countless environments. On the downside, however, improper settings can slow a system down; even grind it to a halt. And with so many parameters--which change from version to version of Oracle s
Oracle DBA pocket guide by David C Kreines( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Oracle database is one of the most popular in the world, and for good reason. It's compatible, scalable, portable, and capable of performing incredibly fast. The advantages Oracle holds over its competition come with a price, however--it's a highly complex database that's becoming more complex with every release. And this level of detail, of course, can begin to weigh on database administrators (DBAs). Fortunately, the Oracle DBA Pocket Guide from O'Reilly is on the case. This handy reference is designed to help administrators make more effective use of their time by presenting a compact
Equating Tests with the Rasch Model by David C Kreines( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

An explanation is given of what is meant by "sample-free" item calibration and by "item-free" person measurement as these terms are applied to the one-parameter logistic test theory model of Georg Rasch. When the difficulty of an item is calibrated separately for two different samples the results may differ; but, according the the model, the estimated item difficulty is invariant except for an arbitrary constant. Test equating with the Rasch model is the process of determining this constant. Two methods of test equating are described and illustrated by simple numerical examples and by equivalent graphic figures. Common-person equating is done when the same group of persons takes two different tests. Since the persons are assumed to have the same ability regardless of which test they take, the scores on the more difficult test may have a constant added to make them equal to equivalent scores on the easier test. Common-item equating assumes that a given item has only one difficulty. When two tests contain some items, common to both, then common item equating is appropriate. Any difference in the difficulty of the other items in the two tests may be adjusted by calibrating through the common items. Tests of the goodness of the fit of the data to the model are discussed.
