Body Quest: Food of the Warrior, a childhood obesity prevention program, is incorporating technology in practical ways for Extension education. Body Quest is being implemented with more than 2,800 third graders and uses multiple assessment instruments. To reduce data entry burdens, clickers are being used for individual data collection, and data are managed via a SharePoint site.
Traditional use of clickers not what was needed!!

Introduction• Body Quest: Food of the Warrior ▫ Childhood obesity prevention ▫ Third grade population ▫ Goal = increase fruit and vegetable intake ▫ 17 week program ▫ Rigorous evaluation Pre/post-assessments 13 fruit and vegetable tastings Daily school lunch consumption ▫ SNAP-Ed funding
Clickers• Traditional usage (real-time) vs. BQ usage (testing)
Why Clickers?• Over 2,800 third grade students statewide• 19 different assessments per student• Over 1,000,000 data points• Limited manpower• Attempt to avoid “tests”• Portable (network independent)
Would SharePoint Create MoreHeadaches or Solutions?• Guide project in a way such that SharePoint could be eliminated if not meeting needs
SharePoint• "MySite" moved to normal project site with higher space quotas• Redesign for simplicity, because it is not• Assign permissions• Site owner/administrator(s)• Members• Educators• (Later added Visitors)
Critical• Training and more training for site owner/administrator(s)• Administrator(s) must thoroughly understand permissions and what that really entails!
Security Trimming• WYSIWYG, not WYSIWTS• Create 2nd account for "Educator" vs "Administrator" roles, if needed
