Ok - here are the teams as they currently stand. As a team, you need to get together and decide on a plan of attack for your section. We'll discuss your progress at the next AllID meeting.

In Friday's ID meeting, we talked a good bit about the Faculty survey that Carol McQuiggan drafted at http://ets.tlt.psu.edu/learningdesign/FacPedSurvey. It's a great start, but as with other tools, we would like to be able to adapt it for multiple needs. Additional notes from Friday's meeting are posted at http://ets.tlt.psu.edu/learningdesign/node/278.
Since editing during the discussion was taking longer than anticipated, we decided to take the rest of the discussion off-line and form mini-groups to look at different sections of the survey to see if any changes might be needed.
Dr Hoi K. Suen at Penn State has written some papers analyzing the history and psychometry of the Chinese Keju civil service exam. It dates from Imperial China (pre 20th century) and was required for anyone wanting a civil service position.
Anyway, the administration of this exam lasted centuries, so there's some interesting data to be looked at from a pedagogical point of view if you're interested.
If anyone knows more about Dr. Suen's work, I would love to hear comments about it.
Just a reminder - March 7. 10 AM, Room 202K Rider II Univ. Pk. is our next All ID meeting. You can also join us via Adobe Connect at https://breeze.psu.edu/allids/ .
Carol McQuiggan will be talking about a faculty needs assessment she and Ann Taylor ran some time ago. This one's focused on pedagogy. I'd like us to discuss the possibility of revising this assessment so we can run it again with our faculty. It would have generic and campus/college specific questions, so we'd all have to pitch in on the survey revision.

Strategically planned questioning can engage students in learning by helping them reflect on readings, develop problem-solving skills, form concepts, or simply practice foundational skills. Questioning focuses attention and guides study, reading, writing, communication, visualization, design, development, and other learning activities.
