 Student helpers will be trained and assigned to student groups during lecture to document the discussions using the coding scheme described in subsection~\ref{subsec:disccat}. They will be provided with worksheets to quickly tabulate contributions. Results will be stored in conjunction with the statistical data gathered from each question. Analysis will be carried out as described in \ref{prevdiscrev}.
 We will interview focus groups of students regarding their experiences and perceived relative helpfulness of the different problem types, and ask them to also reflect on how they perceived these question types were influencing their problem-solving strategies. Pascarella~\cite{pascarella02} developed some frameworks for these interviews, which can be built upon.

 than a conceptual discussion. It will be interesting to see how this affects the gain compared to a traditional PI setting.

 The same concept inventories using the establishment of initial conditions (subsection~\ref{inventories}) will be used in a post-test scenario.

-\subsubsection{Correlation of In-Class and Exam Performance}
 A capability of our systems is that we can use the same question without modifications in online and bubble-sheet exam mode. 
 Since in addition, questions are randomizing, we are able to include some of the same questions used in class on exams and 
 quizzes. A similar study was previously conducted by Kashy~\cite{kashyd01} for homework questions.

 The goal of computer-guided group formation is to generate student groups with differing initial responses. Group formation is limited by seating arrangements in a the lecture hall, unless time can be afforded for students to get up and walk around the lecture hall.
