ATE Central Reports
ATE Central conducts surveys, usability testing, informal discussions, and
more formal one-on-one interviews each year to help get a better picture of
the ATE community and
the challenges faced by centers and projects. Below you'll find a selection of
reports created as a result of this work — please contact us if you have
questions! We'd love to hear from you.
ATE Central 2011 PI Interview Report
In an effort to better understand the needs of the
ATE community and in
order to strengthen and support the projects and centers a set of phone and
face-to-face interviews were conducted with
PIs in 2010 and a follow up
survey was conducted with the larger community in the summer of 2011. The
interviews in 2010 focused on benchmarking types of questions — e.g.
"What do you think are the greatest strengths of the
ATE program for the
education community as a whole?" — as well as questions about how ATE
Central can better support the goals of individual projects and centers. The
web-based survey that followed in 2011 built on the questions asked of
centers, but broadened the scope to include projects.
