Professor Philip S. Stevens

Professor Stevens' research focuses on characterizing the chemical mechanisms in the atmosphere that influence regional air quality and global climate change. An accurate understanding of this chemistry is essential to assess, control, and predict the impact of anthropogenic perturbations on the chemical and radiative properties of the atmosphere.

Faculty

CALM benefits faculty by providing them with a straightforward means of assigning homework, and grading it in an automatic fashion. CALM provides tools to examine the performance of either an individual student or a group of students. Faculty can thus assess the comprehension of an individual or the entire class on a given topic.

Students

CALM provides the student with the opportunity to learn in a way that:

  • Allows a student multiple attempts to answer a question without penalty
  • Reinforces learning by providing immediate feedback
  • Incorporates adaptive features to effectively test each student
  • Emphasizes practicing similar questions to develop mastery

The newest features of CALM include:

  • Practice tests to simulate test taking and reduce test anxiety
