During the Summer of 2021, the RadGrad Project hosted 5 undergraduates from the University of Hawaii: Andre Ruiz, Shinya Saito, Caliana Fortin, Timothy Huo, and Trey Sumida. Four of these students were funded by the NSF Research Experience for Undergraduates program.
We presented RadGrad at the 2021 AAAS-IUSE Summer Labs "Project Office Hours" program on June 29. We received useful feedback on our project and enjoyed learning about other IUSE projects. Here's our slides (there is a difficult to see right arrow in the bottom right corner that you can use to advance through the slides):
We are delighted to welcome Andre Ruiz, 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 email@example.com 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.
