NSF ROLE Proposal-May03
Strictly speaking, this is neither a paper nor directly related to the Media Computation class. But it does have some of the same people working on it, and the proposal does build on our results from the Media Comp class...and I wanted to find some CoWeb space where we could work on it, so let's do it here. :-)
I propose a process like on the Report on CS1315 Pilot where we sign out the draft, and perhaps upload with the a different name (though that's not strictly necessary – the CoWeb handles revisioning).
Here is the current draft and my BibTeX refs.
I copied a big section of the proposal out of this: finalreport.pdf finalreport.rtf
Last two grant proposals in this area, so many of the refs (like on how bad CS retention is) are here: ei-proposalNov02-final.pdf
6:46 am 5/23/03 - Just uploaded, pausing now. Mark
11:25 am 5/23/03 - Back to working on it – consider it locked for now, please. Mark
3:01 pm 5/23/03 - Got through the beginning of the proposed work, stopping for today. There are questions in there now for Je77, too. Mark
1:30 pm 5/27/03 Working now
(Uh, that was Mark)

FRIDAY, May 30 4:00
Andrea added some citations. Will email more feedback by morning. NSF-Role-May03-Proposal-Tex1.tex.txt proposal.bib.txt
Here's the source: NSF-Role-May03-Proposal-Tex1.tex
These are the references files you'll need to build the source: finalreport.bib proposal.bib
- It's too short by a couple pages.
- I don't think we make enough of an argument that retention is an issue.
- I think we confound success in the class and retention. What did Laurie Williams measure? Since we're using her results and MediaComp's to drive this, we can only go for things that BOTH studies found, and I think that's just retention.
- Is Year 1 under-specified? Should we be more specific in what we're doing?

Mark has the edit. I've grabbed Andrea's parts and am merging in Je77's comments now.

I've got to run now – more later I hope. You'll find a whole new section in there, where I've inserted an influence diagram and am trying to articulate our theory better – something I hear both Je77 and Amy asking for. JNot all changes made in response to Je77 and Amy comments. Mark

I consider this relatively DONE. If you have comments, send them to me, please, especially bugs/typos. I'll make small changes Monday morning then hand it over to Joan. I'm off to get the IRB process started (necessary for us to submit!).
