Research Report: The Assignment Planner

I am happy to share the news that the research conducted by Boba Samuels, Kelly McDonald and Emmy Misser about the Assignment Planner has now been published by the Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario. The full document can be found here.

The purpose of this research was to learn about first year students' use of and experiences with the online Assignment Planner. Samuels, McDonald, and Misser used online surveys and interviews to collect data from students and professors about their perceptions of the Assignment Planner. One of the many findings of this study was that when students used the Assignment Planner, they used it more when it was integrated into a course than when it was not integrated into a course. In addition, students and professors expressed the need for more support in how to use the Assignment Planner. Overall, both students and professors had positive perceptions of the Assignment Planner.

I encourage you to read the full report here.
