Data Collection and Analysis in the Math Department - What we are learning about our students, our intervention programs, and maybe ourselves?
Event Date:25 October 2012 from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM
Where:114 McAllister Building
Contact Name:Jim Hager
Beginning with the Fall 2011 semester, the math department has endeavored to collect a variety of student performance and learning behavior oriented data, targeted at such objectives as understanding student learning habits, the efficacy of our intervention programs, and factors contributing to success in our first year classrooms. During this seminar, I will describe our math model, the type of data we are collecting, some of the very preliminary results, and our near-term goals. Although the presentation is based on our math-centric collection and analysis efforts, the discussion will be of general interest to STEM organizations. There will be plenty of time to discuss the model/results, and to provide inputs for the next phase(s) of this important math department effort.
