The academic achievement of students with hearing loss is: a) about the same as that of students with no disabilities b) somewhat higher than that of students with no disabilities c) relatively low compared with that of students with no disabilities d) significantly lower than that of students with no disabilities.
The academic achievement of students with hearing loss is relatively low compared with that of students with no disabilities.
Explanation:Several studies were carried out to compare the "academic achievement" of students with hearing disability and the reports showed that the disabled students scored relatively low compared to the students with no disability. There was adverse effect on academic areas like learning, math, writing, etc. Also, the problem of higher absenteeism and higher dropout rate was faced along with lower GPA and SAT score. The students with disability also took one semester longer to complete the semester.
question - in 1827, john walker, a druggist in a small english town, tipped a splint with sulphur, chlorate of potash, and sulphid of antimony, and rubbed it on sandpaper, and it burst into flame. the druggist had discovered the first friction-chemical match, the kind we use to-day. it is called friction-chemical because it is made by mixing certain chemicals together and rubbing them. although walker's match did not require the bottle of acid, nevertheless it was not a good one. it could be lighted only by hard rubbing, and it sputtered and threw fire in all directions. in a few years, however, phosphorus was substituted on the tip for antimony, and the change worked wonders. the match could now be lighted with very little rubbing, and it was no longer necessary to have sandpaper upon which to rub it. it would ignite when rubbed on any dry surface, and there was no longer any sputtering. this was the phosphorus match, the match with which we are so familiar. according the paragraph what was the benefit of the new phosphorus match? it burst into flame when rubbed on sandpaper. it was made by mixing chemicals. it could be ignited on any dry surface. it threw fire in all directions.
answer - matches required natural chemicals
