The purpose of the study was to find out the association of classroom environment with the academic achievement of secondary school girls in Pakistan. The population of the study was 1104 Secondary School Teachers SSTs / Trained Graduate Teachers TGTs (Female), 5628 secondary school girls in 64 Federal Government Girls Secondary Schools. Multistage sampling was used in the present research. Three categories of schools (Large, Medium, Small) were constructed for research purpose on the basis of the number of students who appeared in SSC-I annual examination 2014 by a federal board of intermediate and secondary education Islamabad. The objectives of the study were to find out the nature of the classroom environment at girls secondary schools and to identify the association of classroom environment with the academic achievement of girls at secondary school level. Two hypotheses were formulated and tested with the help of statistical tests to achieve the objectives of the study. The study was descriptive in nature and survey technique was used to collect data from respondents. Data were collected on various aspects of the classroom environment, including temperature, furniture and fixture, arrangement of furniture, air, light, writing board facilities. The tool consisting of fourteen statements on classroom environment was getting validated from four experts to determine content validity. Reliability of the research instrument was determined by using Cronbach Alpha based which was. 855. The analysis of the collected data was carried out by using two non parametric statistical tests, i.e. (i) Chi Square test, (ii) Mann Whitney U test. There was a positive association between the classroom environment and academic achievement of girls at secondary school level.

reliability. 4 Discussion The subjective assessment of nasal obstruction requires validated survey instruments. In case when a linguistically native instrument is not available, the full process of CCA should be performed to acquire valid QoL questionnaires and scientifically comparable results. The process itself is a multistage effort to maintain comparable contents. The NOSE-si instrument was developed according to principles of good practice ( 15 ) and emerging guidelines ( 11 ). Internal consistence reliability, test-retest reliability, psychometric

used kick during competition ( Lee, 1996 ). However, this study did not estimate VO2max and only sought to predict the anaerobic threshold from the HR deflection point. The main purpose of this study was to verify the concurrent validity of a maximal taekwondo specific test to predict VO2max. To this end, we compared the acute metabolic responses of elite taekwondo athletes when performing a 20 m multistage shuttle run test (SRT) ( Léger and Lambert, 1982 ; Léger et al., 1988 ) and a taekwondo specific test (TST). Additionally, we performed an explanatory model of

Even though the use of contraception in Thailand has a prevalence of as high as 79.6%, there is still a proportion of women in certain regions of the country that do not use contraception [ 1 ]. The 2009 Reproductive Health Survey, conducted by the Thai National Statistical Office, revealed that the proportion of married women, aged between 15-49 years who use contraception was lowest among women who lived in the southern part of Thailand [ 1 ]. A study conducted in the United States found that low use of contraception posed a significant risk factor for
