We are delighted to welcome Shinya Saito, Caliana Fortin, Trey Sumida, and Timothy Huo into our National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduates program for Summer, 2021. They will be developing their software engineering and research skills throughout the summer by readying the RadGrad2 code base for deployment to two departments in Fall 2021, and by performing pilot studies to assess the usability of the system by students, faculty, and advisors.
The RadGrad team has published two articles this fall: "Beyond course work: expanding what's valued in computer science degree programs" in the Journal of Applied Research in Higher Education, and "Is GPA enough? A platform for promoting computer science undergraduates' pursuit of career related extracurricular activities", in the International Journal of Technology in Education and Science.
During the Summer of 2020, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the RadGrad Project hosted 11 undergraduates from the University of Hawaii, including four students funded by the NSF Research Experience for Undergraduates program.
We are happy to announce the availability of RadGrad t-shirts for pickup to those students who completed their degree plan in December and filled out the form requesting a tshirt. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have not already received an email with instructions on how to pick up your t-shirt.
Many thanks to RadGrad undergraduate research assistant Mirabela Medallon for the design!
The RadGrad Project is hoping to find several undergraduate students to participate in the NSF Research Experience for Undergraduates program starting in Summer, 2019.
Philip Johnson gave an introductory presentation on the NSF-supported project to evaluate the impact of RadGrad on engagement, retention, and diversity.
We are delighted to announce that NSF has awarded $300,000 to evaluate ways in which RadGrad can help increase engagement, retention, and diversity in undergraduate computer science.
Danny Weng, an M.S. graduate student in Information and Computer Sciences, has joined the RadGrad team.
During Spring semester, 2018, we are deploying RadGrad into the Department of Information and Computer Sciences at the University of Hawaii.
