A Conversational Agent to Improve Response Quality in Course Evaluations

Thiemo Wambsganss, Rainer Winkler, Matthias Söllner, Jan Marco Leimeister
2020 Extended Abstracts of the 2020 CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems  
We hypothesize that these interfaces can interactively engage students to increase response quality of course evaluations in education compared to the common standard of web surveys.  ...  Past research indicates that web surveys come with disadvantages, such as poor response quality caused by inattention, survey fatigue or satisficing behavior.  ...  Explanations for these negative effects might be that student responses are affected by survey fatigue [25] or respondents' satisficing behavior [7, 12] .  ...

Flipping a Graduate-Level Software Engineering Foundations Course [article]

Hakan Erdogmus, Cecile Peraire
2017 arXiv   pre-print
Creating a graduate-level software engineering breadth course is challenging. The scope is wide. Students prefer hands-on work over theory. Industry increasingly values soft skills.  ...  Changing software technology requires the syllabus to be technology-agnostic, yet abstracting away technology compromises realism. Instructors must balance scope with depth of learning.  ...  Again, students are given heads up to disincentivize them against free loading. This strategy is successful in differentiating between high-and low-performing students in the same team.  ...
