Nineteenth DATC JUNTO

Meeting Logistics: Tuesday, December 4, 2007, 11:00 am to 12:30 pm in Stad 367.

At our last junto we discussed the state of Course Management Systems (CMS.) We talked about bringing survey questions to this meeting. This sparked a conversation with Mark and I about "how to write good survey questions?" This tapped into a significant portion of Mark's graduate work and he graciously offered to work together with me to select some readings that aim to "Demystify Research." Since we work with faculty to support them in their research, these readings are intended to help us to understand the challenges of developing research projects that provide reliable and valid data. One of the readings is also intended to shed light on the process of writing survey questions.

The readings are excerpted from two texts and are not available as pdf files. (39 pages.) Therefore, they have been copied and are located on a table outside of Mark's office in the Stadium. Please let me know if you need help getting a copy in time. Hope to see you Tuesday!
