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.
We are starting a pilot study of RadGrad in Fall 2017 in the Department of Information and Computer Sciences at the University of Hawaii.
Amy Takayesu has completed her M.S. thesis, entitled: "RADGRAD: Using degree planning, social networking, and gamification to improve academic, professional, and social engagement during the undergraduate computer science degree experience".
Amy Takayesu was invited to speak at the 2017 Booz Allen Ideas Festival in Honolulu, HI. She was the only student selected to present as part of the Ignite sessions.
This fall, Philip Johnson, Cam Moore, Josephine Garces, Aljon Preza, and Amy Takayesu began work on the first production release of RadGrad.
The RadGrad Advisory Board, consisting of Philip Johnson, Henri Casanova, Michael-Brian Ogawa, Scott Robertson, and David Chin, held their first meeting on July 27, 2016. They discussed the direction of the project and plans for collecting baseline data on the ICS community during Fall, 2016.
The RadGrad team for Spring, 2016 has been formed.
We have also been hard at work on the Data Model, and an initial implementation is now available as a Meteor package.
