Abstract

Worcester Polytechnic Institute's on-campus Interactive Qualifying Project (IQP) reports on average have not been meeting the desired levels of student learning set by WPI. Therefore, our goal was to improve the quality of the on-campus IQP by first determining student knowledge, motivation, and attitudes toward the project, and then using these findings to develop appropriate recommendations that WPI can implement. Through faculty and student interviews we recommended to WPI that improved resources, better communication, and increased guidance can expand student understanding of and motivation toward the IQP.
