Go to start of metadata

This assessment is targeted towards university-level faculty and students interested in assessing their knowledge of parallel Matlab on XSEDE systems. Two badges are under development, a beginner-level assessment, and an intermediate-level assessment. Questions and practical exercises are designed to assess knowledge of basic concepts and commands relevant to Matlab for HPC systems. 

Learning Competencies

Our set of learning competencies to be assessed were guided in part by the PSC workshops, the CI-Tutor tutorials, and CVW tutorials on introductory MPI. The MPI Beginner Badge is a low-stakes metric of whether a user has the following abilities:

Matlab for HPC Systems Beginner Badge

Matlab for HPC Systems Intermediate Badge

Matlab for HPC Systems Beginner Badge

The Matlab for HPC Systems Beginner Badge consists of a relatively simple 10-question quiz made with basic questions about MPI concepts and commands. The quiz requires no time limit to complete, and allows up to 5 submissions. 

Update, July, 2020: 

The Matlab for HPC Systems Beginner Badge is currently under review. You can view it here

Matlab for HPC Systems Intermediate Badge

The Matlab for HPC Systems Intermediate Badge consists of two parts as described below.

Part 1: Knowledge Assessment (In Development)

This part consists of a 10 or 15 question quiz made with more difficult questions than the beginner badge, requiring a time limit to complete, and allowing only 2 submissions. A passing grade of 80% is needed to successfully complete Part 1. 

Part 2: Practical Assessment (In Development)

For this part of the badge, the user will need to complete a practical assessment of their MPI skills.  

In order to assess the user's performance, the user will need to submit code files and any required output to the badge assignment. Reviewers will be alerted and grade the submission. A passing grade of 80% is needed to successfully complete Part 2. 

When Parts 1 and 2 are complete, the user will receive the badge.
