Abstract

The objective of this Major Qualifying Project was to determine any areas for improvement or to find any interesting patterns to make the Mastering Physics software used for the introductory physics classes more effective. This was accomplished by writing a PHP script to analyze the data gathered from the Mastering Physics software. Using this software we were able to easily see some patterns with regards to what conference times appeared to produce the highest grades on the Mastering Physics assignments. This data can be used in the future to help choose more effective conference times for the students.
