US/Canada Education Program Assignment Design: Fall 2012

In the four semesters of the Wikipedia Education Program and Public Policy Initiative, our students have produced some great work on Wikipedia. We have tried to engage all professors in a post-assignment assessment or survey so we can continue to improve the class experience and quality of work students are adding to Wikipedia. Over and over again, professors express a desire for more guidance in building an assignment that will work well on-wiki while still meeting important goals. So we created the orientation resource for professors, which you can use to guide you through this form. This form will provide us the information that we think is important for providing feedback before the assignment begins. Thank you, ahead of time, for taking the time to fill this out. We truly believe these steps will result in a better student experience!
