  1. Using Mastering for both Short-Term & Long-Term Success:Tips & Techniques to Consider Scott Hildreth - Chabot College

  2. A caveat, right from the start… Nothing I can share today will eliminate…. Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  3. Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  4. Another caveat, right from the start… There is no ONE right way to do Mastering, that everyone will agree to… Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  5. A typical division meeting at Chabot Even though we are all scientists… Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  6. A typical Physics department meeting at Chabot Not even in the same discipline! Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  7. Ways I used Mastering initially… • In Physics – for automated grading of traditional Homework problems in a once-a-week assignment • In Astronomy – for tracking student access and time using animated tutorials Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  8. An “Aha” moment Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  9. Ways I Use Mastering Now…Calculus-based Physics • Homework • Introductory assignments at start of each chapter • Weekly homework assignments • In-class collaborative group work (teams) • Lecture – doing problems together • Exam Review • In-class competition (teams) • Outside of class preparation • Extra Credit & Remedial Help Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  10. Ways I Use Mastering Now…Introductory Astronomy • Homework • Weekly homework assignments with ranking tasks • Reading quizzes • Links to additional reading, videos, and resources • Lecture – doing online simulations together • Exam Review • Outside of class preparation • Extra Credit & Remedial Help Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  11. Yet another caveat… You don’t have to do all of these at once! Try one new thing a term… Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  12. Tips for Short-Term Success • Diagnostics • Discussion/Recitation Section Group Work • Competitive Group Exam Reviews • Lecture Problems • Homework Quizzes • Remediation & Extended Learning/Extra Credit Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  13. Tip #1DiagnosticsTeaching US why students get the wrong answers Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  14. Mastering Captures Data Quickly see what they miss & why Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  15. Mastering Captures Data Quickly what they miss & why Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  16. Mastering Captures Data Quickly see who is working Cannon, Annie Chandrasekhar Einstein, Albert Feynman, RichardHawking, StephenHerschel, CarolKlumpke-Roberts, Lightman, AlanPerlmutter, Saul Rubin, Vera Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  17. Mastering Captures Data Quickly see time they spend Cannon, Annie Chandrasekhar Einstein, Albert Feynman, RichardHawking, StephenHerschel, CarolKlumpke-Roberts, Lightman, AlanPerlmutter, Saul Rubin, Vera Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  18. Mastering Captures Data Quickly see success on each assignment Cannon, Annie Chandrasekhar, S. Einstein, Albert Feynman, Richard Klumpke-Roberts, D Lightman, Alan Rubin, Vera Cannon, Annie Chandrasekhar, S. Einstein, Albert Feynman, Richard Klumpke-Roberts, D Lightman, Alan Rubin, Vera Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  19. Mastering Captures Data Quickly see time per assignment Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  20. #1 Short-Term Tip: UseDiagnostic Data • Examine submissions quickly by • Hardest problem (& most common errors) • Time(caveat: not necessarily valid measure) • Names • Adapt lecture/discussion to focus on errors • Re-assign key problems (with variables!) • Examine student success across spectrum of course assessments Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  21. Mastering Enables RAPID Data Analysis Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  22. Mastering Enables Data Analysis Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  23. Mastering Enables Data Analysis Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  24. Tip #2Group WorkShared learning & teaching Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  25. #2 Short-Term Tip: Try Collaborative Group Work • Teams of 3-4 students per single computer • One person uses their login • Everyone participates to arrive at single answer • Build short assignments with tutorials, ranking tasks, test-bank questions, & a few EOCs • Copy score to gradebook for all participants Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  26. Tip #3:Competitive Exam ReviewTimed,Collaborative,Conceptual Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  27. #3 Short-Term Tip: Try Competitive Exam Review • Teams of 3-4 students per single computer • Build short TIMED assignments with test-bank questions • Use diagnostics during event to spur on teams as they race to finish. Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  28. #3 Short-Term Tip: Try Competitive Exam Review Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  29. Tip #4: Lecture ProblemsHelp Students see how to use the system Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  30. #4 Short-Term Tip: Use the System in Lecture • Demonstrate keyboard shortcuts • Entering \alpha becomes a • Entering x_2^2 becomes x22 • Demonstrate feedback for incorrect answers • Provide additional problems for students to review or access if they miss lecture Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  31. Tip #5:Homework QuizzesEncourage EVERY Student to Learn the Material Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  32. #5 Short-Term Tip: Homework Quizzes • How can we deal with “cheating”? • Students do much better on HW than on exams • Collaborating • Outright copying • Unlimited time • Pick one exam-type problem for in-class quiz on day HW is due. Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  33. #5 Short-Term Tip: Homework Quizzes Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  34. #5 Short-Term Tip: Homework Quizzes Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  35. Tip #6:Extra Credit & RemediationReward Students willing to go farther Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  36. #6 Short-Term Tip: Remediation & Extra Credit • Take advantage of breadth of problems • Examples from Physics/Astronomy • Math Remediation +/- • Video Tutors • Concept Quizzes • Encourage applications and extensions • Locating (& Creating!) YouTube clips Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  37. Adding Hyperlinks Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  38. Link Examples • Add Hyperlinks to Assignments • Share videoclips, lecture links, and more Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  39. Link Examples • Add Hyperlinks to Assignments • Share videoclips, lecture links, and more What they see… Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  40. And over the long term? Data! Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  41. Using Results Anni Cannon Marie Curie Charles Darwin Albert Einstein Natalie Angier Carolyn Shoemaker Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  42. Tips for Long-Term Success • Use Gradebook Data to Compare Assessments • Download to Excel • Compare Homework Scores to Midterms • Focus Attention on Particular Students • Use Learning Outcomes to compare results across classes and time Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  43. Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  44. Mastering Enables Data Analysis: Learning Outcomes Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  46. Mastering Enables Data Analysis: Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  47. Tips for Long-Term Success • Use Diagnostics to clarify and enhance key problems • Look at past semester results • Identify areas where more students “tripped” • Add messages, hints, and even wording to help students do even better • See website for details Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  48. Enhancing Assignments • Messages – before any item in an assignment • Simple editor • Add Annotations • Add hyperlinks • Rephrase or emphasize • Advanced editor • Expanded hints • More correct/incorrect answer feedback Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  49. Message Examples • Add Messages to Assignments with instructions, caveats, gotcha’s, and encouragement Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012

  50. Hint Examples • Add Hints to Problems w/ Simple Editor Declarative Hints nudge students Scott Hildreth - Long Beach - October 2012
