This workshop will help you to identify some common mistakes we make when designing and grading writing assignments in the undergraduate classroom, and provide you with some strategies to help you avoid these stress-inducing (for the students) and time-consuming (for you) practices. This workshop will address designing clear assignments, writing effective rubrics, and planning time-saving grading strategies.
Designing a high-quality survey that meets your research needs is key to a successful classroom research project, but so is getting students to take those surveys. This workshop will cover research-based recommendations for both the design and implementation of online surveys. The first hour will focus on survey basics and question design for those somewhat new to survey methodology. After a brief break, the second hour will focus on reducing barriers and perceived “cost” of taking—and analyzing—the survey for students and researchers using motivational techniques and Qualtrics options.
