Sullivan and Adrion awarded NSF funds

Florence Sullivan (TECS) and W. Richards Adrion, Department of Computer Science,were awarded $300,915 by the National Science Foundation to develop and pilot a new research method that combines microgenetic analysis techniques derived from developmental psychology with learning analytic techniques from the field of computer science. Sullivan and Adrion will use the new method, termed “Microgenetic Learning Analytics,” to engage in research on the development of computational thinking among underrepresented students, particularly girls, as they interact in a robotics learning environment, with the goal of increasing the diversity of individuals who enter the field of computing.
