Allergy is a very common problem and can be a handicap in everyday life, specially when symptoms occur at work place. Some persons working with drosophila developed respiratory symptoms. Investigators tried to analyze if these manifestations could be due to a specific allergy to drosophila.
To do so, investigators invited laboratory workers who presented any symptoms in presence of drosophila to undergo skin prick tests in order to determine if a specific sensibilization to drosophila exists. Then, a blood sample is taken from these persons to research specific IgE directed against drosophila. By this way, investigators hope determine if a specific allergy to drosophila exists, its characteristics as prevalence, symptoms, populations concerned...in order to better protect laboratory workers and prevent allergy incidence.

Tests designed to assess language behavior and abilities. They include tests of vocabulary, comprehension, grammar and functional use of language, e.g., Development Sentence Scoring, Receptive-Expressive Emergent Language Scale, Parsons Language Sample, Utah Test of Language Development, Michigan Language Inventory and Verbal Language Development Scale, Illinois Test of Psycholinguistic Abilities, Northwestern Syntax Screening Test, Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test, Ammons Full-Range Picture Vocabulary Test, and Assessment of Children's Language Comprehension.
A self-reporting test consisting of items concerning fear and worry about taking tests and physiological activity, such as heart rate, sweating, etc., before, during, and after tests.
In screening and diagnostic tests, the probability that a person with a positive test is a true positive (i.e., has the disease), is referred to as the predictive value of a positive test; whereas, the predictive value of a negative test is the probability that the person with a negative test does not have the disease. Predictive value is related to the sensitivity and specificity of the test.
Skills and strategies, unrelated to the traits a test is intended to measure, that may increase test takers' scores -- may include the effects of coaching or experience in taking tests. (ERIC Thesaurus)
