Inspired by a desire to provide easy and efficient opportunities for students to communicate with the Student Government Association, the SGA has so far installed three Auburn Answers iPad kiosks in high-traffic areas of campus including the Ralph Brown Draughon Library.  The iPad Auburn Answers  kiosk is located in front of the Caribou Coffee Café located in the Mell Street entrance lobby area on the Second Floor of the RBD Library.

Communicating is a simple four-step process:  students are prompted to enter their name and e-mail address;  and then are provided a chance to provide comments or suggestions which the system sorts into one of nine categories.  This next goes to the SGA directors of student feedback and who, in turn, respond to the students directly via e-mail.  This information is then compiled and sent to University administrators who can better address the concerns received.

In addition to the RBD Library location, Auburn Answers iPad kiosks are located in Village Dining and also near Chick-fil-A in the Student Center.

ICPSR (the Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research) hosts over 20 data collections funded by government agencies and various foundations. Using these funds, the carefully curated data are free to the public. Please join ICPSR as it highlights a number of these collections as part of its 2014 Data Fair. Webinars in this series (with registration links) include the following:

 

An Introduction to NADAC - ICPSR's National Archive of Data on Arts and Culture

Broadcast time (EDT): Monday, October 6, 1:00pm

Registration link: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/2151323503634547970

NADAC's mission is to share research data on arts and culture with researchers, policymakers, people working for arts and culture organizations, and the general public. This session, led by staff managing NADAC, will help attendees to learn about data available from NADAC at the national, state, and local levels. The session will also highlight user-friendly tools for analyzing the data (including for those not experienced with statistical packages), for visualizing the data, and for other ways of using research data to support the arts and culture community.

 

NAHDAP Orientation - ICPSR's National Addiction and HIV Data Archive Program

Broadcast time (EDT): Tuesday, October 7, 2:00pm

Registration link: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/8538322777711643650

NAHDAP facilitates research on drug addiction and HIV infection by acquiring and sharing data, particularly those funded by its sponsor, the National Institute on Drug Abuse. This session, led by members of ICPSR's National Addiction and HIV Data Archive Program team, will help attendees learn about NAHDAP's services and resources for data depositors and data users. Further, they will orient you and help you locate this information on the NAHDAP website, highlighting selected datasets and data series.

 

Q&A with MET Staff

Broadcast time (EDT): Wednesday, October 8, 2:00pm

Registration link: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/4879725324077805570

The Measures of Effective Teaching Longitudinal Database (MET LDB) has been available to the research community for almost a year now, and we invite current and potential users to log in for a review of the project and available data, and then stick around for Q&A with the ICPSR staff who manage data file processing and access for secondary analysis. This is a great opportunity to get your questions answered about this complex dataset, specifically questions on file organization and structure, as well as data access policies and procedures.

 

Out of the Gate(S): Post-Secondary Trajectories and Outcomes of Millennium and Washington Achiever Scholars

Broadcast time (EDT): Thursday, October 9,  3:00pm

Registration link: https://www2.gotomeeting.com/register/674413562

The Washington State Achievers Scholarship program (WSA) started as part of an initiative by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to fund and support 16 high schools in Washington State as they redesigned their schools in order to increase academic achievement for all of their students. In 1999, the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation started the Gates Millennium Scholars Program (GMS), a 20-year initiative which intends to expand access to higher education for high achieving, low-income minority students.

In 2012, ICPSR’s Resource Center for Minority Data ( RCMD) and the Gates Foundation entered into an agreement to make data collected through the two scholarships freely available to the public through ICPSR. This session will provide some methodological and content background on these data and ways to access and analyze these data.
