Since Fall 2015, the Learning Commons staff compile data every semester from both paper-based sign-in sheets and digital sign-in databases. The data is gathered on a semester by semester basis and used to complete bi-monthly, semester, and end-of-year reports, which are submitted to the Office of the Provost.
Writing Center Reports
Students visiting the Writing Center often complete student profiles and schedule online appointments in advance through WCOnline. If students show up for walk-in appointments, our tutors sign them in through WCOnline, and students also sign in on using a paper sign-in sheet.The staff then collects and compiles student attendance and demographics from both sets of data.
The Learning Commons staff gather and compile data from the Smarthinking usage menu. The site tracks how many students utilize the service, how many hours they use, as well as what part of the site they visited and what courses they tutored in.
