    The office of Education is ready to take its programming to the next level and explore new methods of collecting information that illustrates the sentiments and experiences of education participants. b Capturing and understanding participant feedback and response to educational activities, materials, and engagement is key to program development, analysis and evaluation cycles/efforts. Current methods for determining participant responses include, surveys, focus groups, exit interviews and informal discussions. The inherit challenge of data collected via these traditional methods are that they are costly, biased, deemed burdensome, and challenging to implement. In order for NASA to have a more active (as opposed to reactive) response regarding our investments we must receive unbiased and timely feedback. For this reason NASA Education is interested in developing an application that allows participants to share their real-time feedback/sentiments regarding their educational experiences. It will collect information that will enable NASA education to quickly discern what is or is not working with our engagements. Data can be collected via registered users entries or through the utilization of existing social networks via hash tags that include key words like NASA internship, NASA Fellowship.

    Challenge Description

    Develop web-based or mobile platform through which users can provide NASA Education feedback on their experience. The initial audience here is for interns at the NASA Education program.

    Functional Specifications

    Registered users can select from a list of emotions, emoticons, and or enter free form text describing how they are feeling about their learning/working experience and/or workplace. The application should pick up location (region of the country, state) and time/date, along with each entry for the user. Responses should display in a visually engaging way. Users should be able to easily search and sort responses across a number of filters (i.e. user demographics, location, types of responses, individual responses). Data should be aggregated and displayed in a way that will allow users and visitors alike to be able to answer basic questions such as: how do participants feel about their learning experience? How do female participants feel vs. male participants? How do participants majoring in a STEM disciplines feel vs. those majoring in business disciplines? What is the sample size for this response?

    Registration would include basic demographic information on users, location, age, gender, academic discipline/major, education/professional level, and NASA Education program/activity. Registration is required to record feelings. Registration is not required to view results.

    This application should be designed to entice users to share their candid feelings. It should not feel like a survey or polling website. It should evoke a sense of community that the user wants and recognizes them to be a part of. For the Record (RFT) is a place to share opinions and get a pulse on the experiences of NASA Education participants.
