Dimensions of a Survey

The Center for Educational Transformation's "Ed Research Afternoons" series will host Jill Wittrock, Center for Social and Behavioral Research. She will walk attendees through the lifecycle of a survey from the Total Survey Error (TSE) framework. This framework is often used in survey methodology to evaluate all possible sources of error in a survey and make informed decisions about what to do at each phase (e.g., Should I do a web survey or telephone survey? How do I enter data to minimize errors?). A reference list will also be provided.

UNI/AEA 267 Regional Physics Competition

The Department of Physics will host the UNI/Area Education Agency 267 Regional Physics Competition, a series of five competitive physics events for students in grades 9-12. The competition stresses creativity and ingenuity as well as understanding of physics-related principles and is intended to stimulate interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Events include catapult, mousetrap car, toothpick bridge, soda straw arm and challenge problem. Regional winners and runners-up advance to the State of Iowa Physics Competition.

Organic Transition Workshop

Join the Iowa Organic Association for its Organic Transition Workshop. Farmers and extension agents will walk through the economics of organic transition, weed management, crop insurance and more. Cost is $10 and includes lunch. The workshop is co-sponsored by Iowa Organic Association and UNI Center for Environment and Energy Education.

What is a survey?

The Center for Educational Transformation's "Ed Research Afternoons" series will host Mary Losch, Center for Social and Behavioral Research. She will provide an overview of what a survey is and is not, including what kinds of data lends itself to collection via survey, how surveys are distinct from other data collection methods, questions to ask yourself before conducting a survey and more.

State of Iowa Physics Competition

The Department of Physics will host the State of Iowa Physics Competition. Participating high school students qualified at regional competitions and represent the top teams from Area Education Agencies across the state. The competition is a series of five events that stress creativity, ingenuity and an understanding of physics-related ideas and is intended to stimulate interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Events include catapult, mouse trap car, toothpick bridge, soda straw arm and challenge problem.
