Quality Assurance and Control Methods

Student-teacher teams enter data to an online database and submit datasheets to the program coordinator. University staff audits collected data to ensure proper procedures, replications, and calculations. This assures that the data meets quality assurance objectives. Raw and audited data is available online for web-based query.

Students and teachers compare data and relate their results and activities to those of other student-teacher teams and to broader university and agency projects.  Students can compare, contrast and explore how parameters change with time and between watersheds because all data is collected in the same way, using the same equipment for each team and by prior students
