Evaluation

Surveys

To measure the impact of SEED labs on our own students, we use the survey technique. After students finish each lab, we ask them to fill out a survey form (the form can be found at each lab's web site). The surveys are anonymous and on the voluntary basis. Over the years, we have accumulated over 700 reponses. The survey results for individual labs are already linked to the page where all the labs are listed, so we will not repeat them here. Using these collected data, we have conducted some initial analysis. We link the results in this page:

Students's responses on a particular survey question at different years


Perceptions on the labs from students of different genders


Perceptions on the labs from students with different readiness


Perceptions on the labs from students with different Unix background (all the labs are conducted in the Unix environment)


Perceptions on the labs from students who feel the lab are easy or difficult.
