Plans for additions to articleEdit

As part of an assignment for a class at Carnegie Mellon University, Ecballer17 and I plan to make several additions to this article. We intend to update the history section of the article with more detailed information including how the department was created and who it was created by. Next we will add a section about the courses and research opportunities offered by the HCII department at CMU. Finally, we will attempt to include some information about the notable faculty members or graduates as well as details about the programs offered by the department. Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated. Sanilshah (talk) 19:38, 26 March 2012 (UTC)


the first HCI lab openned by Bonnie would have been when she was a graduate student, so I wonder if she really openned it.

article notes started in 1993 and in 1994.

not clear how a two year degree is done in 12 months. why not do a 36 month degree in 1 year then?

10% of chi papers should be substantiated, that is an astounding claim.

While allen would have supported it, he could not have created it, much, as he passed in 1992, but perhaps he helped in 1990-1992. otherwise, could be a bit tighter but helpful. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 104.39.92.19 (talk) 23:47, 30 August 2017 (UTC)

Courses and projects info.Edit

This article is quite turstworthy, quite biased, quite complete, quite well-written,and quite accurate. The famous projects and courses can be included. — Preceding unsigned comment added by DegapudiSudhipti (talkcontribs) 02:02, 6 February 2012 (UTC)

Edits to the CMU HCII pageEdit

This wikipedia article could use an update on many things. There should be a more extensive update on the history. For example, who founded the HCII, who have been the directors of the program, and who all are the current professors of the program. Also, the Wikipedia page should have any notable graduates (if any) as well as any notable research that is going on within the department. The article should also list what government funded research is happening and companies spun off from the department. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ecballer17 (talkcontribs) 00:53, 7 February 2012 (UTC)

CMU HCIIEdit

The article could be improved to add information about the courses offered at the university. It would also be nice if the article included some information about the professors that teach at the HCI institute. Lastly, the article could include a brief overview of the subjects that Human Computer Interaction covers and what the main areas of research and study are. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sanilshah (talkcontribs) 00:11, 13 February 2012 (UTC)

Note: I'm concerned that the nominator is no longer active as an editor. I will contact the user on his talk page. Viriditas (talk) 01:41, 17 June 2012 (UTC)

ChecklistEdit

GA review (see here for what the criteria are, and here for what they are not)
  1. It is reasonably well written.
    a (prose):   b (MoS for lead, layout, word choice, fiction, and lists):  
    Prose OK
    MOS OK
  2. It is factually accurate and verifiable.
    a (references):   b (citations to reliable sources):   c (OR):  
    Article is based on primary sources. I'm sure there are quite a lot of secondary sources on the subject.
    I looked for secondary sources, and noticed one or two mentions in tertiary sources; most secondary sources are about researchers and research, not the school itself
    Unsourced statements are found throughout the article.
  3. It is broad in its coverage.
    a (major aspects):   b (focused):  
    Per the above, it isn't clear why the primary editor chose to highlight specific research projects not reflected by the secondary sources.
  4. It follows the neutral point of view policy.
    Fair representation without bias:  
    Tone could be perceived as promotional. Will check sources.
    I'm unable to find secondary sources. Since most of the content is sourced to the school itself, as a reader I feel like I'm being recruited rather than learning about a school in an encyclopedic manner. This could of course be fixed with a number of major changes, but I'm proposing to merge whatever is salvageable into Carnegie Mellon School of Computer Science and redirect this topic. That's not my final word on the subject, so I'm going to wait for some feedback over at the parent discussion page.
  5. It is stable.
    No edit wars, etc.:  
    Stable
  6. It is illustrated by images, where possible and appropriate.
    a (images are tagged and non-free images have fair use rationales):   b (appropriate use with suitable captions):  
    Would an image of the Gates-Hillman Complex be appropriate?
  7. Overall:
    Pass/Fail:  
    I've proposed merging this article into the parent topic, Carnegie Mellon School of Computer Science. There are additional issues listed above needing to be addressed. Viriditas (talk) 08:15, 17 June 2012 (UTC)
    I'm still waiting for consensus to form over at Talk:Carnegie_Mellon_School_of_Computer_Science#Merge? before I even contemplate a merge, but I think it is time to fail this article due to the primary use of self-published sources in a promotional manner. Please feel free to neutralize the content and find reliable secondary sources about the topic before it is submitted again. Viriditas (talk) 05:06, 26 June 2012 (UTC)

CMU MHCI | Madeira ProgramEdit

The Masters program paragraph can be appended to include the inclusion of the dual degree program as noted on this webpage: http://www.hcii.cmu.edu/madeira-program Raunaqg (talk) 19:39, 8 November 2012 (UTC)
