Abstract Title: RAWR: Rapid Assessment and Web Reports
Abstract: We report on RAWR, a new web-based system for monitoring student understanding of a wide range of introductory physics concepts throughout the term. RAWR rests upon a novel application of between-student testing to university physics courses during the time of instruction. Data collected during the alpha-testing phase on over 1200 students at Rochester Institute of Technology will be presented, as will examples of a variety of statistical analyses that are available to the  participating instructor.  Because large student numbers improve statistical analysis, it is particularly appropriate for large enrollment classes. RAWR enters the beta-testing stage at a number of external institutions in Fall 2012.
