The Entering Freshmen Topology: Guidelines for the Design of a Student Data Collection System and Its Use in Teaching and Administration.
Bess, James L.
This report summarizes the finding from the evaluation of the Entering Freshmen Topology program and lays out the parameters of a new system for the collection of data at William Patterson College. The profile includes student and faculty responses concerning styles, decisions and background information. While the notion is not new that student data can be used for educational and management purposes, such use has not been systematic. In the program to design a comprehensive system, a gross task analysis identified six related aspects of the learning environment which the instructor can manipulate to fit the learning styles and needs of students. Faculty and staff training is suggested for full utilization of data to facilitate decision making. Also included is an index of testing instruments available which are most relevant to this project.
