ATE Central 2011 PI Interview Report

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 ATE 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.
