Hunch is a service that attempts to fine-tune search results based on personal preferences. It does this by asking a series of seemingly unrelated questions, and then using similar responses from other people to predict interests.

This might not be useful now, but could we use similar techniques to better understand student needs and expectations? It may be worth a closer look, so we thought we would give it a try. The questions below will attempt to match up the interests of people reading the CTAAR newsletter.

(A warning to Facebook users: Hunch and Facebook apparently share information with each other, without notifying you. You may notice a Hunch icon the next time you log in to Facebook. If that concerns you, go to the Facebook settings page and remove the Hunch application.)
