Gus Greivel; Alexandra Newman; Maxwell Brown; Kelly Eurek – INFORMS Transactions on Education, 2024
Industrial-scale models require considerable setup time; hence, once built, they are used in myriad ways to consider closely related cases. In practice, the code for these models frequently evolves without appropriate notational choices, largely as a result of the lengthy development time of, and the number of individuals contributing to, their…

Stevens, Scott P.; Palocsay, Susan W.; Novoa, Luis J. – INFORMS Transactions on Education, 2023
Test writing is a fundamental component of teaching. With increasing pressure to teach larger groups of students, conduct formal assessment of learning outcomes, and offer online and hybrid classes, there is a need for alternatives to constructed response problem-solving test questions. We believe that appropriate use of multiple-choice (MC)…
