The underlying objective of the STARS Evaluation project is trying to understand what real impact the STARS Alliance is having, and how effective the different projects and strategies have been in achieving the desired goals of the program. Our primary job is to help report back to the central organization activities that take place locally. In addition to such activity reporting, which helps us collect quantitative measures of success and gauge demographic distributions, we also help in qualitative reporting which includes a summary of projects and activities, as well as interviews with SLC students regarding their experiences related to computing and STARS.
The STARS Student Leadership Corps (SLC) website is a place for students, faculty, and sponsors to learn more about the STARS SLC. We provide information on the projects that current STARS SLC students are undertaking as well as details about the students themselves and information for applying to or assisting with the STARS SLC program.
Graduate and undergraduate students provide free one-on-one tutoring during weekly open lab hours to all CSC116 and 216 students (Intro to Programming w/Java) who seek it. This allows for more support for these students, who may be unable to or uncomfortable with meeting with instructional staff. We coordinate the service with the instructors to keep tutors informed of current assignments and to preserve academic integrity.
