Statistical analysis of science 101 student assessment data.
As part of a NSF-AIRE grant, an new course for non-science majors
was developed, titled Science 101: Introduction to Science. This course
was designed to introduce science to non-science majors in an
active-learning setting using environmental science as a
multidisciplinary focus. To assess the effectiveness of the course, we
administered surveys at the beginning and end of the course addressing
student attitudes toward science, environmental issues, and testing the
student's content knowledge. These data will be analyzed for
changes in ranked responses for individual questions and groups of
questions. In this poster we present the statistical analyses of the
pre- and post-instructional data and results concerning the
effectiveness of the course.
