Professor Bogdan Dragnea

Professor Bogdan Dragnea

Professor Dragnea's areas of research include Physical and Analytical Chemistry. Current interests include principles of virus self-assembly, biophotonic applications of nanoparticles, and dynamics in supramolecular aggregates such as molecular microcrystals, viruses, and curvature-strained self-assembled molecular layers. Building upon the lessons from these systems, new instruments can be developed at spatial scales and sensitivities down to one molecule.

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.


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
