Logic model for “math prep for DS programme for college students”
RQ1: Are students who’ve gone through the prep course intimidated by mathematical formulations of data problems?
RQ2: Is the fear students have of mathematics affecting their learning?
RQ3: Is “time to first action” a good proxy for gaining a sense of student fear?
RQ4: Are timed tests indicative of student performance in subsequent DS courses?
Highlights from the in-person discussion:
Fear and degree of intimidated are hard to measure
Ethics issues (e.g, for doing RCTs on your students and such)
The questions are not inter-connected, but this happens (e.g, one of the RQs might be about incoming students, one might be about outgoing ones; and they might seem unrelated but are all important).
