For both students and instructors, major writing research projects are problematic: they're especially difficult for students who lack strong writing skills, and they difficult for instructors in the time it takes to grade the projects. After several semesters grading a major APA-style career research 5-7 page paper for CPD 150, I was disappointed in student scores (especially in grammar), and I never looked forward to the amount of time I knew it would take me to grade all of the papers. It was time to "build a better mousetrap"! I changed the Career Research Paper to the Career Research Prezi. In doing so, I found a 15% increase in the average student's grade, and my time in correcting the project was reduced by more that 50%. This was a win-win solution!
