Evaluations to be accessible on oZone Native Resolution makes past course data available MAX JANERKA

Campus Reporter

The Student Government Association passed a resolution that will allow students to access prior course evaluation data through oZone. SGA passed the resolution on Jan. 22, said resolution author Ozair Naqvi, microbiology sophomore and member of the Problems and Projects committee. Naqvi started working on the resolution last winter. The data is available right now on a master spreadsheet on the provost’s website, but it is complicated to access and few students know it exists, Naqvi said. When the resolution is

implemented, the data will be linked from the academics tab in oZone, where it will be made accessible as soon as the enrollment window opens, he said. This new option could prove to be a better alternative to sites like ratemyprofessors.com, where anyone can submit an evaluation, he said. “We were frustrated that we had to use three different sites, ozone. ou.edu, classnav.ou.edu, and myedu. com, to pick out our classes,” said psychology junior Kristin Pascoe in an email. “After talking to other students, we discovered that many others shared our frustration, and many freshmen weren’t even aware of the other sites.” Pascoe said she and her roommate at the time, economics junior Laura Shapiro, realized that it would be easy enough to connect the information

BUILDING DIVERSITY

Engineering students bridge gender gap Women find success despite noticeable gender division PAIGHTEN HARKINS

Assistant Campus Editor

When Lan Le, electrical engineering junior, applied for an internship after her sophomore year of college, she became one of the few students her age to have nabbed one. Part of the reason she got it, Le believes, is her gender. “Walking in, I feel like I have the upper hand because I’m different. I’m a minority. I’m a woman,” she said, explaining many companies want to meet a certain quota of female employees and might give female applicants preference over males. In the professional world, Le witnessed the existing gender gap, but the division between the two sexes didn’t begin once she got the internship. It was something she first experienced while studying engineering at OU, where women make up only a little over 20 percent of the total number of students enrolled in the college, according to the OU Factbook. In 2011, 569 women were enrolled in the engineering college, compared to the 2,178 men enrolled in the same college, according to the Factbook. From the previous year, the number of women enrolled increased about 3 percent while the number of men enrolled increased 7 percent. Yet Le didn’t struggle with the gender gap, she said, even though it was noticeable — at some SEE GENDER PAGE 2

The sounds of drums and singing Tuesday afternoon on the South Oval attracted a crowd, as demonstrators holding signs performed a Native American round dance. The crowd of demonstrators, which consisted of students, OU graduates and Norman community members, were present to support the Idle No More cause, a grassroots movement for indigenous rights and environmental sustainability that was founded in Canada last November, said demonstrator Ashley Nelson, a history of science graduate student. “ We ’ r e j o i n i n g t o gether as one voice and one fire,” said Anthony Williamson, a Choctaw/ Chickasaw demonstrator and local business owner. “It’s for everyone who’s concerned about Mother Earth.” Demonstrators on Tuesday addressed a wide range of issues including preventing domestic violence, receiving justice for murdered family members, stopping the Keystone Pipeline and ending Land Run reenactments.

CAMPUS BRIEFS

To help get students off campus and out of the country, the OU Outreach center and OU Student Affairs have teamed up with the U.S. Postal Service to provide a Passport Day for students. Passport Day will be held from 8-11:30 a.m. and 1-3 p.m. on Thursday and Friday in the Oklahoma Memorial Union’s Heritage Room. During the event, students will be able to process their passport application and talk to a passport coordinator, she said. Passport Day is open only to students, said Lily Martinez, contract assistant at the U.S. Postal Service National Center for Employee Development, a part of OU Outreach. Students attending the event need to bring proof of citizenship, such as an original or certified birth certificate, naturalization certificate or an old passport, as well as a form of photo identification, like a valid driver’s license or a military ID, Martinez said. To pay for the $150 passport, students must bring a check or money order because the application will be mailed to the state department. Cash will not be accepted. “Passport Day is a fast and convenient way for students to acquire their passport,” Martinez said.

protest sounds at OU

OU has been found capable of providing a quality education to students, according to a recent report from the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. The report stated the university’s teaching quality, research expansion, globalization and community embody key elements of OU’s mission to provide the best possible educational experience for students. Because of this, OU was reaccredited with no additional monitoring. “It’s the university’s No. 1 goal to provide an academic foundation, and the accreditation process is vital to that mission,” university spokesman Michael Nash said. The report especially illustrates the impact of OU’s academic research initiatives, Nash said. “The impact is unique and beneficial to learning students, expert researchers, the state as a whole and the country,” Nash said. OU President David Boren said he was proud of the agency’s findings and the supportive nature of the reaccreditation report. “It is confirmation of the high standards of excellence which are being met at OU,” Boren said in a press release.

The low rates of student participation in online evaluations also are cause for concern because they can skew the results, said political science professor Ann-Marie Szymanski. In some cases, less than a quarter of the class actually completes the evaluations, which leads to inaccurate results. Participation was much higher when the evaluations were done on paper, Szymanski said. However, Naqvi, Pascoe and Montgomery remain optimistic about the outcome of the resolution. This way, students will be able to plan their schedules

more easily and wisely without getting overwhelmed by too many classes with too much coursework at a time, Pascoe said. The resolution does not stop with a link, either. The plan is to eventually allow students to access each class and professor evaluations separately, rather than hunting through the provost’s spreadsheet, but that part of the plan is still far in the future, Naqvi said. “We’re taking this one step at a time,” Naqvi said. “This is the first step.”

Students should help on take-home exams

T

he evolution of OPINION COLUMNIST academic integrity has outpaced institutions’ attempts to keep college “fair.”Online resources and new collaborative tools put traditional academics in an unfamiliar position and that Storm Dowd-Lukesh makes policing university storm.dowdlukesh@gmail.com work a heavy task. Harvard is in the middle of a cheating case that has exposed the difficulties in addressing academic integrity. Half of the roughly 125 students accused of cheating on a take-home test for a Harvard government class last Spring have been forced to temporarily withdraw. After nearly a year, the college’s disciplinary boards determined various punishments for each student involved. Schools don’t know what cheating is, yet focus immense effort on preventing it and, meanwhile, fail to prevent some of the most basic dishonest practices. Academic honesty is a lost cause. If you have a few extra $100, there are plenty of essay mills willing to “earn” you an A. If you are struggling with ideas for a take home exam, your friends might share some of theirs. The increasing pressure on students to graduate with high GPAs and load up on credit hours can unintentionally encourage dishonesty in the same way worldwide fame will encourage an athlete to artificially increase his or her red blood cell count. The classroom is not a bike race, but for some students it can feel just as competitive. The high pressure atmosphere of university education means academic honesty is an impossible goal. Relieving the competitive aspect of education is similarly impossible, but perhaps a focus on student-faculty relationships or a heavy emphasis on school-wide honor codes could help students understand their academic honesty is valuable.

Copyright 2012, Newspaper Enterprise Assn.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 2013 Exciting times could be in the making during coming months, involving new places, faces, sights and sounds. Approach the future with lots of hope and expectation, envisioning many positive results. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Those with whom you have commercial involvements will quickly judge you to be fair and equitable. The example you set will be emulated by them in return. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Any new venture that you undertake will have very high chances of success. It’s possible there could be three such projects working out to your satisfaction. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -You couldn’t avoid the spotlight if you tried, so don’t fight it. There is no need to get stage fright; the audience is packed with your friends. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -When you decide to promote a new idea, issue or cause, you can become an especially good salesperson, especially if you truly believe in what you’re doing. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Knowing that you will be better playing a supportive role, you’ll happily leave primary management of a project in the hands of someone in whom you have great faith. Good for you. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Willingly making adjustments that another wants could turn out to be an advantageous maneuver, and

Take your chances. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -More often than not, it’s important to prime the pump to get things flowing. For example, if you’re desirous of making financial gains, an investment on your part might be required.

Sooners headed to Little Apple after blow out loss OU tries to avoid first back-to-back losses this season

PLAYER PROFILE Joanna McFarland

Julia Nelson

Year: Senior

Sports Reporter

When the OU women’s basketball team lost to West Virginia, 82-63, Sunday in Morgantown, the Sooners appeared not to be themselves, coach Sherri Coale said. “We just sort of let the physical nature of the game affect us,� she said. “I think that’s what affected our shooting. I think it’s what affected our transition. “I just think mentally we were a bit too fragile.� After getting blown out in their last game, the No. 23 Sooners (16-5, 6-3 Big 12) will look to bounce back and redeem themselves at 7 tonight at Kansas State. “I think everyone really wanted to do it over again, but you can’t do it over again,� Coale said. “So the next best thing is to do it right the next time. So we’re really looking forward to this trip.� Junior guard Aar yn Ellenberg said she is looking forward to regaining her rhythm after only making one shot from behind the arc

Position: Forward

“We just sort of let the physical nature of the game get to us... I just think mentally we were a bit too fragile.� sherri coale, ou coach

Statistics: Leads the team with 198 rebounds, doubling the next best performer

against West Virginia. “There was just a lack of rhythm,� she said. “Maybe I wasn’t 100 percent. I got a lot of shots. They just weren’t falling.� She might not have been at full strength Sunday, but she says both her ankles are feeling good. Ellenberger is the Sooners’ top scorer and leads the Big 12 in 3-point field goal percentage and 3-pointers made. Another key for the Sooners will be to keep s e n i o r f o r w a rd Jo a n n a M c Fa r l a n d o u t o f f o u l trouble. She sparked the Sooners’ offense early Sunday but drew some early fouls that limited her playing time. “I thought I was playing

pretty straight up throughout the game, but sometimes stuff just happens,� she said. “So I guess I’ll just try to be really straight up, not move my feet at all. Just be so they can’t call a foul on me.� Currently, she has double-digit rebounds in 10 of the last 13 games. More than anything though, McFarland wants to get this team back to where it was before the West Virginia loss. “We were in a really good position before, but we dropped one,� she said. “So we need to get back into a really good position to win second place in the league. “We weren’t proud of what we did out there. So we need to come out and show who we really are.� OU enters tonight’s game placed second in the Big 12 and is 2-3 in its last five ben williams/the daily games after winning its pre- Junior guard Aaryn Ellenberg pushes the ball up the floor against Kansas State on Feb. 15, 2012.
