2011 REU Poster Exit Survey

Published on


Students in the Summer 2011 Summer Program participated in an experimental version of a virtual poster session implemented in a 3D virtual world we called Quakequest.  The survey was designed as a post evaluation to capture students’ self report about their experience.  Its primary goal is a formative assessment to help us improve the system.   The driving questions to be evaluated by the survey include –


Do students perceive learning from their peers by preparing, sharing and reviewing drafts of their research results? (learning)

Does the experience provide formative feedback they can use to improve the quality of their experience? (learning)

What challenges do students experience using the virtual world? (usability)


The results of this survey provide valuable information used to redesign the system for future uses.
