The innovative assessment method for an entrepreneurship class under Project-based Learning (PBL) approach has been functioning since 2015’s second semester at a Business Administration undergraduate course of a private university in the municipality of Campos dos Goytacazes in Rio de Janeiro state, Brazil. This PBL methodology was implemented in the Brazilian college as an experimental adaptation of a learning model usually adopted in Finland. The process required substantial changes in the teaching/learning methods and methodologies and had a significant impact on students´ learning and motivation. In this first edition of an entrepreneurial class under the PBL methodology as an innovative experience, it was aimed to verify the results about the student's PBL experience. The final student's assessment method from this learning experience was made in two ways: firstly, in the traditional way using a business plan quality analysis and secondly, through an peer assessment learning perception. The paper presents the overview concepts of PBL applied to entrepreneurship in managerial undergraduate classes. In addition, the adopted assessment methodology is presented. Finally, the merits of the new assessment method learned in Finland are discussed from surveys results and workshops organised as part of class assessment. The results indicated that the PBL approach applied to college entrepreneurship classes were profitable, as well as the effectiveness of the peer assessment method. © 2016, University of Minho.

The strategies adopted by corridors "street" during the evidence from interference of the race distance and levels of technical and physical competition. The objective of this study was to examine the biochemical effects of Creatinine (C), Uric Acid (AU), Creatine Kinase (CK) and Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR) caused by a test run of "street" of 6 (six) Km participated n=(15) male athletes (40.53 ± 8.65 years) divided into three groups: Group 1 Best Times (G1MT) n = 5, Group 2 Intermediate Times (G2TI) n = 5; Group 3 Times Worst (G3PT) n = 5. Blood samples were collected 30 min before and immediately after the race. Data were analyzed by Two-Way ANOVA, Wilcoxon and Mann Whitney test. It was considered significant levels (p<0.05). The results showed that there were significant increases in serum activities of intra-group (C) in G1MT before: 1,18±0,04 mg.dL-1 after: 1.60±0.15 mg.dL-1; G2TI before: 1,04±0,15 mg.dL-1 after: 1,56±0,21 mg.dL-1; G3PT before: 1,08±0,13 mg.dL-1 after: 1,52±0,32 mg.dL-1 and (AU) G1MT before: 3,80±0,75 mg.dL-1 after: 4,56±0,94 mg.dL-1; G2TI before: 4,36±1,62 mg.dL-1 after: 5,0±1,69 mg.dL-1; G3PT before: 4,62±1,08 mg.dL-1 after: 5,42±0,86 mg.dL-1, while (CK) and (GFR) showed no significant difference.

BACKGROUND: Flutter VRP1, Shaker, and Acapella are devices that combine positive expiratory pressure (PEP) and oscillations. OBJECTIVES: To compare the mechanical performance of the Flutter VRP1, Shaker, and Acapella devices. METHODS: An experimental platform and a ventilator, used a flow generator at 5, 10, 15, 20, 26, and 32 L/min, were employed at angles of -30°, 0°, and +30° to evaluate Flutter VRP1 and Shaker, whereas Acapella was adjusted at intermediate, higher, and lower levels of resistance, including positive expiratory pressures (PEP) along with air outflow rates and oscillation frequencies. RESULTS: When the relationships between pressure amplitudes of all air flows were analyzed for the 3 devices at low and intermediate pressures levels, no statistically significant differences were observed in mean pressure amplitudes between Flutter VRP1 and Shaker devices. However, both devices had different values from Acapella, with their pressure amplitude values being higher than that of Acapella (P = .04). There were no statistically significant differences in PEP for the 3 angles or marks regarding all air flows. The expected relationships between variables were observed, with increases in PEP, compared to those of air flows and resistance. Nevertheless, there was a statistically significant difference in frequency of oscillation between these devices and Acapella, whose value was higher than those of Flutter VRP1 and Shaker devices (P = .002). At intermediate pressure levels, the patterns were the same, in comparison to low pressures, although the Acapella device showed frequencies of oscillation values lower than those of Flutter VRP1 and Shaker (P < .001). At high pressures, there were no statistically significant differences among the 3 devices for frequency of oscillations. CONCLUSIONS: The Flutter VRP1 and Shaker devices had a similar performance to that of Acapella in many aspects, except for PEP. © 2013 Daedalus Enterprises.
