Oct 25th: Mike and Kelvin talked on the phone, here are the details of the conversation:
i. Opt-Out-Form: students must be given the opt-out form, where they can contact Becky and opt-out from the research study. Mike and Kelvin _will not_ know which of the students have opted out.
ii. Assign each student a pseudo-name: [besides the students, Becky will be the only person who know the pseudo-name to student mapping]
iii. Student will use their pseudo-names on all of the surveys:
1. pre-course background/attitude survey
2. post-assignment reflection survey
3. post-course attitude survey
iv. Becky will collect, for each student:
1. Pre/Post tests, midterm, final exam
2. All survey forms [Survey on line?]
Becky will then _destroy_ all the students’ names so that Mike and Kelvin has no way of knowing which result belongs to which students. All we have are collection of students results. Mike and Kelvin will know how Student-A has done, what is her background/attitude. Since the names of students are destroyed, Mike and Kelvin will not know the name of Student-A.
i. how to we handle the pseudo-names?
ii. A student volunteer will leave the form with CCC somewhere and
iii. Becky will pick up the forms afterwards?
Action Items, Mike will:
