Center for Assesment of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics
The mission of CA-STEM is to improve the methodologies used by evaluators in the assessment of educational interventions in the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines. CA-STEM's role is to bring together experts in quantitative research, qualitative research, and STEM content with the purpose of improving the evaluation of educational research projects. CA-STEM will also provide a training ground for undergraduate students, graduate students and researchers who are interested in assessment and evaluation.
The primary goals of CA-STEM are:
- To conduct research in the assessment of the STEM disciplines at all levels, kindergarten through graduate education.
- To provide evaluation experts for educational research projects (kindergarten through graduate education) conducted both in CSM and across the nation.
- To train undergraduate and graduate students in both qualitative and quantitative research techniques for the evaluation of educational research projects in the STEM disciplines.
