ILAP Schedule
This was our first attempt at introducing ILAPs into our courses, although we had used group projects in the calculus courses prior to this. We had not previously used interdisciplinary or hands-on features of projects. Our ILAPs have at least one of these features. We constructed our ILAPs and non-ILAPs keeping in mind students’ comments from previous projects. We gave students information packets containing the following (which are posted at our web site): project description and assignment, grading policy and related information, technical report format and writing guide, sample report, information on working effectively in small groups, first group meeting form, and small group peer evaluation forms.
Douglas Grouws, Mathematics Education, University of Missouri, was the external independent evaluator in charge of assessments. Leslie Keiser, a TU graduate student, assisted him with the
