Abstract Title: Logistics of (Inter)National Database of Assessment Results
Abstract: The PER community has long been in need of a database where teachers can upload student scores on PER-based assessment instruments and get analysis of their results along with peer group averages to use as a measure of comparison.  Such a database would also be a boon to researchers who could have access to large amounts of data from diverse institutions.  The PER User's Guide (http://perusersguide.org) and Grove City College are collaborating to develop an assessment results database. Before putting this database on line, however, many logistical issues need to be addressed: usability, privacy concerns, IRB approval, authenticating users, concerns of assessment authors, etc.  Anyone interested in providing input and feedback on this project is welcome to join the dialogue.
