    Quality of csc project Quality of csc project Presentation Transcript

    • Quality improvement of CSC Project Sandipan Dhar Page 1
    • Expected quality of CSC Project •Innovative, simple and practical •An outcome of a team work •Based on exploration of everyday life situations •Either survey or observation or experimentation-based or a combination of all these •An analysis based on scientific methodology to provide a definite output •An attempt to take on a problem directly related or linked to society at the local level •With definite follow-up plans Page 2
    • TargetEncurage children to EXPLORE, THINK, SERVE, WONDER, ACHIVE. Page 3
    • It involves skills of observing  classifying  inferring  predicting  measuring  compare & contrast  critical thinking  creative thinking  communicating  interpreting data  estimating  categorizing  analyzing  synthesizing  drawing conclusions cooperative skills Page 4
    • Fundamentals On the basis of existing knowledge, experience & skill Start with •Questioning, •Designing an independent investigation, •Collecting information, •Evaluating accuracy & reliability, •Organizing information •Working with model and simulation, •Drawing conclusion and giving explanation. Page 5
    • How to go about ?Guiding principle Learning through doing Page 6
    • Learning Event Page 7
    • Stick to holistic approach instead of partial one Page 8
    • Where to start  From what is known to what is unknown  From something that is concrete then to one that is abstract  From general and move on to particular  From observation and then to theory  From something simple before making it complex  With an overview before introducing details. Page 9
    • SMART approach S - Specific - in Title, Problems, Study Area, Method and content M - Measurable - problem (in quantitative or qualitative terms) A - Appropriate - in terms of objectives and methods, in relation to the problem, educational level, age, situation R - Realistic - in terms of problems, methods, objectives conclusion and suggestions including follow-up activities T - Time-bound - Define the time frame. Page 10
    • Steps of Activities • Formation of Group • Choosing a Guide • Selection of a problem • Selection of study area • Review of reference – books, journals etc. • Survey and experiment • Scrutiny, compilation, analysis of collected data/information • Preparation of Report • Follow-up initiatives. Page 11
    • Tips for Survey based study• Defining Universe of study• Designing sample frame• Decision on Sample size• Selection of sample• Tools of data collection – questionnaire/schedule/ observation note/observation documents/etc.• Scrutiny of collected data/information• Compilation and analysis data• Presentation in Table/Chart• Depicting pattern and relation, etc. Page 12
    • Tips for Experiment based study • Observation • Questioning • Formulation of Hypothesis • Testing in relation to control • Documentation of experimental data • Analysis of data • Depicting pattern and realtion • Conclusion or inference Page 13
    • Planning for Report Writing and Oral Presentation Page 14
    • Salient Features of a good study • Proper understanding on the issues of studies, definition of the problem undertaken for study; • Quality and Quantity of work, including team work, learning process, subject understanding and efforts to validate the data collected; • Relevance of the study in the context of community/ neighbourhood; • Originality, innovation and creativity shown to understand the problem and find the solution , ( including the methodology and experiment design ) Page 15
    • Some of the important driving forces 1 Fairness and accuracy:  Factual accuracy,  Balanced presentation of differing viewpoints and theories ,  Openness to inquiry ,  Reflection of diversity . Page 16
    • 2. Depth: Awareness ( of natural & built environment), Focus on concepts ( environment & sustainability), Concepts in context (conditions & issues) Attention to different scales (local,regional,national & global). Page 17
    • 3 . Emphasis on skills building: Critical and creative thinking Applying skills to issues Action skills . Page 18
    • 4 Action orientation:Sense of personal stake and responsibility, Self-efficacy. Page 19
    • 6. Usability : Clarity and logic, Easy to use, Long lived, Adaptable, Make substantiated claims, Fit with national, state, or local requirements. Page 20
    • Desired Performance Page 21
    • INTRODUCTIONTitle should be informative, specific, concise, understandable and self-explanatoryThe introduction should have Relevant background information Need statement focusing on the overall issue, problem, or core / research question One or two but not more than three paragraphs Page 22
    • AIMS & OBJECTIVESShould define very specifically Why this project has been selected? How this problem / issue would be addressed?Keeping in mind that there is Limited time period and Limited localized geographical areaAvoid repeating introduction Page 23
    • HYPOTHESISIn one or two statements, hypothesis should give an idea, based on known facts that has not yet been proven, about the problem selected Page 24
    • WORK PLANIt should be schematic form or as a flow chart, preferably with time schedulesIt might get deviated from schedule due to unforeseen circumstances, but having such a guideline always help Page 25
    • METHODOLOGYAfter work plan, decide upon method of research in proposed work; survey, observation, and/or experimentationSurveyInvolves using questionnaire for data collectionQuestions should be specificOn an average 20 relevant questions should be askedSample size 50 – 100 people should be included in the study Page 26
    • RESULTSResults are the presentation of data collected during survey, observation and / or experimentationPresentation could either be in the form of charts, graphs, maps, figures or tables etcShould be simple to understandResults only describe and not interpret findings Page 27
    • DATA ANALYSISData presented under the results are analyzed, using principles of mathematicsHere only analysis part is shown Page 28
    • CONCLUSIONBased on the data analysis, final opinion derived, after completing the project, is what forms the conclusion Page 29
    • SOLUTIONSince the problem selected is socially relevant, this part will highlight how the findings influence or have an impact on the society at large Page 30
    • FUTURE PLANSFor taking the work further, from where it has been concluded, future plans provide stepwise guidelinesIt shows that the problem undertaken is open-endedIt ascertains continuity of efforts, gives sense of commitment Page 31
    • PROJECT IDEA MONITORING WEATHER THROUGH MINI WEATHER STATION MATERIALS REQUIRED• TWO ORDINARY ALCOHOL THERMOMETER• ONE FUNNEL• ONE MEASURING CYLINDER•ONE CONVEX LENS•ONE ORDINARY SCALE•TWO RUBBER BALLS• BAMBOO/WOOD/PLASTIC STICK www.expressgrp.com Page 32
    • METHODOLOGY• THROUGH ONE ALCOHOL THERMOMETER, THECHILDREN CAN MEASURE THE TEMPERATURE ATDIFFERENT INTERVALS AND KEEP RECORD OF THAT.• BY PUTTING A SMALL PECE OF WICK OR THIN COTTONCLOTH OVER THE THERMOMETER BULB AFTERSOAKING IN WATER THEY CAN MEASURE THERELATIVE HUMIDITY.• THEN A RAIN GAUGE CAN BE PREPARED BY PUTTING AFUNEL OVER A MEASURING CYLINDER, RAIN DROPSFALLING ON THE FUNNEL WILL BE COLLECTED IN THECYLINDER. MEASURE THE AREA OF THE FUNNEL ANDCALCULATE THE RAIN PER UNIT AREA IN THAT PLACEDURING A PARTICULAR PERIOD. www.expressgrp.com Page 33
    • • THEN WITH A HELP OF A CONVEX LENS TRY TO MAKE ABURN SPOT ON A PIECE OF PAPER, NOTE THE TIME REQUIREDFOR DEVELOPMENT OF THE SPOT AND THE DISTANCE OF THELENS FROM THE PAPER (THIS IS THE FOCAL LENGTH OF THELENS) ON ANY SUNNY DAY. TAKE BURN SPOTS ON SIMILARPAPER AT DIFFERENT TIME PLACING THE LENS OVER THEPAPER AT DIFFERENT TIME PLACING THE LENS OVER THEPAPER AT THE SAME DISTANCE FOR SAME TIME. THE SIZE OFTHE BURN WILL GIVE YOU INDIRECT MEASURE OFINTENSITY OF SUNSHINE.• NOW MAKE A WIND MEASURING INSTRUMENT BY TWOBALLS INTO HALVES FIXING THEM AT THE END OF A CROSSMADE OF BAMBOO/WOOD/PLASTIC STICK AND MAKESUITABLE DEVICE FOR FREE ROTATION OF THE CROSS. BYNOTING HE ROTATION PER UNIT TIME, THE WIND SPEED CANBE MEASURED.. www.expressgrp.com Page 34
    • APPLICATION•STUDY THE CORRELATION AMONG DIFERENT PARAMETERSOF WEATHER (TEMPERATURE, RELATIVE HUMIDITY,INTENSITY OF SUNSHINE, AIRFLOW) FROM THE DATAOBTAINED IN THE MINI WEATHER MONITORING STATIONAND ALSO WITH THE SECONDARY DATA COLLECTED FROMWEATHER STATION, WEATHER REPORT FROMNEWSPAPER/RADIO/TV, COMPARE THE PREDICTED ANDACTUAL WEATHER CONDITIONS.• STUDY THE GENERAL WEATHER PARAMETERS INDIFFERENT PLACES (FOR EXAMPLE FOREST AREA,AGRICULTURAL FIELD, INDUSTRIAL AREA, URBANRESIDENTIAL AREA) AND TRY TO CORRELATE THE WEATHERCONDITIONS WITH THE SURROUNDING CONDITION. www.expressgrp.com Page 35
    • LOG BOOKThis is one of the most important but neglected written documentsIt is the mirror reflecting activityProvides all the answers related to the projectCovers minute to minute recordings, mentioned on daily basis, successes and failures, contacts and impressions Page 36
