Research Report with Survey
The APA manual specifies the following outline for the text of a research report:
a summary (about 100 words) of the subject, the research method, the findings, and the conclusions. See Sample here.
a presentation of the problem researched, the research method used, the background (other studies), and the hypothesis tested.
a detailed discussion of how the research was conducted, including a description of the research subjects, any materials or tools used (such as surveys or questionnaires), and the procedure followed.
a summary of the data collected and how they were statistically analyzed, along with a detailed presentation of the data, often in tables, graphs, or charts.
an interpretation of the data and presentation of conclusions, related to the original hypothesis. (When the discussion is brief, it may be combined with the previous section under the heading “Results and Discussion.”)

The cause of autism has also been a matter of dispute. Its incidence is about one in a thousand, and it occurs throughout the world, its features remarkably consistent even in extremely different cultures. It is often not recognized in the first year of life, but tends to become obvious in the second or third year. Though Asperger regarded it as a biological defect of affective contact—innate, inborn, analogous to a physical or intellectual defect—Kanner tended to view it as a psychogenic disorder, a reflection of bad parenting, and most especially of a chillingly remote, often professional, "refrigerator mother." At this time, autism was often regarded as "defensive" in nature, or confused with childhood schizophrenia. A whole generation of parents—mothers, particularly—were made to feel guilty for the autism of their children. Excerpted from Oliver Sacks’ essay “An Anthropologist on Mars.”

In “An Anthropologist on Mars,” Sacks notes that although there is little disagreement on the chief characteristics of autism, researches have differed considerably on its causes. As he points out, Asperger saw the condition as an innate defect in the child’s ability to connect with the external world, whereas Kanner regarded it as a consequence of harmful childrearing practices (247-48).
Embedded hard real-time software systems often need fine-grained parallelism and precise control of timing, things typical real-time operating systems do not provide. The Esterel language has both, but compiling large Esterel programs has been challenging, producing either needlessly slow or large code.
This paper presents the first Esterel compiler able to compile large Esterel programs into fast, small code. By choosing a concurrent control-flow graph as its intermediate representation, it preserves many of the control constructs to produce code that can be a hundred times faster and half the size than that from other compilers with similar capacity.
The primary contribution is an algorithm that generates efficient sequential code from a concurrent control-flow graph. While developed specifically for compiling Esterel, the algorithm could be used to compile other synchronous languages with fine-grained parallelism.
