Abstract

Researchers are investigating the effect of technology-supported instructional methods on the learning process. One team investigating this effect is the Technology in Education (TIE) group at the University of California, Santa Barbara. A problem these researchers faced, however, was how to collect and distribute the data needed for the wide variety of analyses. The team designed the Data Café statistical database application to provide access and an intuitive interface. Furthermore, the application also provides an up-to-date online "codebook" shared amongst the entire research team. This paper describes this application and shows that it is scalable and flexible. The Data Café provides a diverse group of researchers with a simple to use interface that allows them to download exactly the data they need in exactly the format they need it.
