Re: Award Number: 15871: July-Sep 2007 Progress Report
(XNA Based Games-Themed Programming Assignments)
This report covers our activities from July to Sep 2007. All members of the project went on vacation during late July/early August. We were busy with SIGCSE in early September. Since June, the following are three more publications we have submitted:
We are entering the second phase of our project where we are going to use the assignments in class and assess student learning:
i. Pre test: will be assigned as part of the programming assignments. Students will be advice that they are supposed to _not_ know everything. Students will be graded on effort rather than correctness (credit/no-credit).
ii. Post test: will be assigned as assignment after the programs are turned in. Students will be graded according to correctness. They should treat this as a regular homework assignment.
iii. Polling: Becky and Kelvin will stop by the classroom during the last 10 minutes on the days the assignments are due.
1. For 142: Oct 15, Oct 22, Nov 5, Nov 19
2. For 143: dates TBD
iv. Pre-class assessment on studentsí general feeling:
1. For 142: Oct 1st at 7:35pm
2. For 143: Oct 1st at 8:00pm
v. Post-class assessment on studentsí general feeling:
1. For 142: Nov 26th at 7:35pm
2. For 142: Nov 26th at 8:00pm
i. Mike: will fill out the form for each of the 142/143 assignments.
