Teacher recruiting and reports

A Carnegie Mellon University research team was embarking on a large research project on the topic of Adaptive Cognitive Tutors Using Machine Learning. I produced presentations, handouts, and online materials that could be used for recruitment (as well as consent) to explain the research to non-scientists. This included explaining such ideas as intelligent software, machine learning, and how using software for research was different than beta testing software, and do it in a way that made sense to teachers, administrators, and parents. Using these materials, I was able to recruit close to 2000 students in several school districts. When the results of the study were available, I also created materials to explain to teachers and administrators not only what we discovered about teaching and learning generally, but about the strengths and weaknesses of the students in their own classrooms.
