Teaching basic lab skills
for research computing



Software Carpentry values a culture of assessment, and we are consistently evaluating our workshops to understand the impact workshops have on our learners.


We conduct pre and post workshop surveys for each of our workshops:

Additionally, we began collecting data on the long-term impact our workshops are having on both Data Carpentry and Software Carpentry learners. The Carpentry Long-Term Feedback Survey was launched in March 2017, and data will be collected every 6 months.


Data sets to go along with assessment reports are provided in a GitHub repository, along with the version of the surveys that were in use at time of analysis.
