Despite a lack of consensus on the nature of Computing Research Methods (CRM), a growing number of programs are exploring models and content for CRM courses. This report is one step in a participatory design process to develop a general framework for thinking about and teaching CRM.We introduce a novel sense-making structure for teaching CRM. That structure(More)
In initial laboratory studies, subsymbolic user behavior 1 has shown promise as a source of information for social navigation. Scalable, unobtrusive methods are needed for acquiring data on subsymbolic user behavior in field studies or live systems. Current methods are not suitable for use outside the laboratory because they interfere with normal user(More)
The majority of research on Computer Science student recruitment and retention has focused on underrepresented groups, mostly women. Dwindling Computer Science enrollment is raising interest in recruitment and retention of not just underrepresented students, but all students. This paper describes an effort to build a research collaborative in order to (1)(More)
The <u>c</u>omputing <u>r</u>esearch <u>m</u>ethods (CRM) literature is scattered across discourse communities and published in specialty journals and conference proceedings. This dispersion has led to the use of inconsistent terminology when referring to CRM. With no established CRM vocabulary and isolated discourse(More)
We present an efficient, fully automated algorithm to assemble ESTs into full-length cDNA sequences that represent the complete coding regions of a gene. Our EST clustering algorithm is neither hierarchical nor incremental, but recursive, processing each EST once. The algorithm exploits a variety of syntactic and statistical features of the ESTs. The(More)
