RE: question re random choices from a list of students

Syd,

I think you can accomplish what you want with a formula in Excel - I did a quick google search and got this as a suggestion:

1. Enter a list of names in column A
2. Now enter the formula below in the cell you want the random name returned.

=INDEX($A:$A,RANDBETWEEN(1,COUNTA($A:$A)),1)

This will pick a name at random from your list in column A. It will also be dynamic in that when/if you add/remove names from the list they will automatically be included/excluded.

That came from this site: http://www.ozgrid.com/Excel/excel-random-pick.htm although I suspect the information is available from many other places as well.

I've attached another solution done up in a programming language called Python. I'm sure this is a grossly oversimplified solution, but there wasn't a lot of detail in the question. Python is available for most platforms and it's a very nice, high-level programming language. It's useful for problems like the one you describe. To learn more, you can visit: http://python.org/ .

Best wishes,

Ben Chapman

RE: question re random choices from a list of students

Syd,
Attached is a Random Student Generator program that our webmaster developed for a faculty member here. Instructions included in the zip folder. Make sure to unzip and then click on index.htm to see how it works. We used student photos from our photo directory. It made it more fun for the class when their pictures were displayed with their names.
Feel free to contact Rob Watson for further information. Watson@law.villanova.edu/610-519-7216.
Best,
April

question re random choices from a list of students

Thank Ben,

The idea is for faculty to be able to call on students randomly if they wish
while eliminating any unconscious - or conscious - bias. It seems like this
would be a commonly requested solution but it appears not. I will look
into Python. I would love to see a little app that could be run which all
students could see. That way, they would 1) know that there is no bias and
2) know that the computer could pick them at any time.

Thanks again. I had not previously heard of Python.

RE: question re random choices from a list of students

Good morning,

Some of our professors use eInstruction CPS clickers in their classroom. The eInstruction software has random student selector capability. The professor can adjust the random selector to fit his/her preferences. It can be set to call on students randomly at any time or to not call on a student for a second time until X% of the other students have been called.

I would not recommend using clickers just for this purpose, because there is a cost to students. Most of our students already have the clickers, as most of the professors teaching core 1L courses use them to facilitate discussion in their classes.

RE: question re random choices from a list of students

Back in the dark ages when I went to law school one professor had all student names on cards and made a show each morning of thoroughly shuffling the deck, then drawing cards from the top. A primitive random selector, I concede, but demonstrably unbiased and no one was ever “off the hook.” Of course, it wasn’t fair—some students were called on many times and some not at all. But fairness as a criterion of good legal education is, like software, a more recent development.

I think I have asked this before with no success so I am trying again. Does anyone know of software that will randomly select a student from a list. Also, it will, in my dream world, seed the list so a student is called on multiple times in a give - let's say month - but also doesn't completely eliminate a student thereby preventing the 'i'm off the hook' syndrome.

RE: question re random choices from a list of students

Good morning,

Some of our professors use eInstruction CPS clickers in their classroom. The eInstruction software has random student selector capability. The professor can adjust the random selector to fit his/her preferences. It can be set to call on students randomly at any time or to not call on a student for a second time until X% of the other students have been called.

I would not recommend using clickers just for this purpose, because there is a cost to students. Most of our students already have the clickers, as most of the professors teaching core 1L courses use them to facilitate discussion in their classes.

Thank Ben,

The idea is for faculty to be able to call on students randomly if they wish while eliminating any unconscious - or conscious - bias. It seems like this would be a commonly requested solution but it appears not. I will look into Python. I would love to see a little app that could be run which all students could see. That way, they would 1) know that there is no bias and 2) know that the computer could pick them at any time.

Thanks again. I had not previously heard of Python.

I've attached another solution done up in a programming language called Python. I'm sure this is a grossly oversimplified solution, but there wasn't a lot of detail in the question. Python is available for most platforms and it's a very nice, high-level programming language. It's useful for problems like the one you describe. To learn more, you can visit: http://python.org/ .

RE: question re random choices from a list of students

Back in the dark ages when I went to law school one professor had all student names on cards and made a show each morning of thoroughly shuffling the deck, then drawing cards from the top. A primitive random selector, I concede, but demonstrably unbiased and no one was ever “off the hook.” Of course, it wasn’t fair—some students were called on many times and some not at all. But fairness as a criterion of good legal education is, like software, a more recent development.

RE: question re random choices from a list of students

Syd,

I think you can accomplish what you want with a formula in Excel - I did a quick google search and got this as a suggestion:

1. Enter a list of names in column A
2. Now enter the formula below in the cell you want the random name returned.

=INDEX($A:$A,RANDBETWEEN(1,COUNTA($A:$A)),1)

This will pick a name at random from your list in column A. It will also be dynamic in that when/if you add/remove names from the list they will automatically be included/excluded.

That came from this site: http://www.ozgrid.com/Excel/excel-random-pick.htm although I suspect the information is available from many other places as well.

I've attached another solution done up in a programming language called Python. I'm sure this is a grossly oversimplified solution, but there wasn't a lot of detail in the question. Python is available for most platforms and it's a very nice, high-level programming language. It's useful for problems like the one you describe. To learn more, you can visit: http://python.org/ .
