I meet the Computer Scientists

The Department of Computer Science's Teaching Committee gave up 10 minutes of their precious time in the cause of computer-aided asssessment (CAA) this afternoon. I came to their meeting with gratitude for their support (including a generous donation to the Project budget) and left with two tangible contributions to my wish list:

  1. Access to their postgraduate students (I plan to hire a small team — 2 or 3 from within the Science Faculty — to learn to use the CAA software, to help create the assessments, and to train others to do so).

  2. The possibility of going live with formative CAA on one of the Department's first-year modules — real students doing tests and getting feedback online the autumn.

My next encounter will be with the Department of Statistics.
