You were selected as a possible participant in this study because your professor or course instructor is using one or more Q-bits in a course you are currently taking. We ask that you read this form and ask any questions you may have before agreeing to be in the study.
Data may include:
1) responses entered by you into Q-bit modules as part of your interaction with the course materials.2) your scores on other course assignments or exams in the course(s) where Q-bits are used.3) limited demographic data provided to the study as authorized by your institution, such as your year in school, legal sex, race/ethnicity, financial aid status, and previous scores on assessments such as math SAT/ACT or other math placement exams. All such data will be handled confidentially (see below).
The benefits associated with participating in the research study will go to subsequent students at our participating colleges who may participate in similar quantitative skills supports programs. The insights gained from this study will help us in refining Q-bits and developing approaches.
We will keep all facts about you private. We will keep your records private to the extent allowed by law. We will use a study code rather than your name or ID on study records. Your name and other facts that might point to you will not appear when we present this study or publish the results.
