STOP! Before you start using that discontinuous data sampling system in your program, listen to special guest, Dr. Mary-Katherine Carey, join us for a discussion of its pros and cons. We'll review previous and recent research to determine whether discontinuous data systems really do save a lot of time, whether sampling data can ruin student programming, and whether you can get a scientific study done in a month. Don't worry: We find some time to act all silly and go off on irrelevant tangents too.
