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.
