  • Development of the Dimensions of Success (DoS) Observation Tool for the Out of School Time STEM Field: Refinement, Field-testing and Establishment of Psychometric Properties
    Date: 09/16/2014
    Resource Category: Reference Materials
    The Dimensions of Success (DoS) observation tool defines and provides rubrics (with levels 1-4) for 12 dimensions that were developed to measure STEM program quality in out-of-school time. This technical report summarizes the development of the instrument and findings from our initial study that included 284 observations in the field across 58 ... »
  • AWE Undergraduate STEM Mentor Participation Survey
    Date: 08/04/2010
    Resource Category: Survey
    The Undergraduate Engineering Mentor instruments are used to measure the impact of peer mentoring (or similar peer support activities) on the undergraduate women students who serve as the mentors during peer mentoring. ... »
  • PDQ Survey
    Date: 08/04/2008
    Resource Category: Survey
    The Undergraduate PDQ instruments are designed for undergraduate activities where time limitations or activity importance make rigorous assessment (e.g. using pre and post measures) impractical. PDQ stands for “pretty darn quick”, so named because you can use them for activities that you want to assess but don’t have the desire or time to do so ... »
  • Pre-College Middle School Survey for Engineering
    Date: 08/04/2008
    Resource Category: Survey
    Using the pre-college suite of surveys you can determine whether specific activities met your objectives and use this information to improve activities and make evaluation decisions. Specifically, the instruments assess the following topics: Course-taking plans for high school, whether participant intends to study science, engineering, or computer ... »
  • Pre-College Annual Self-Efficacy Survey
    Date: 08/04/2008
    Resource Category: Survey
    LAESE is designed to identify longitudinal changes in the self-efficacy of undergraduate students studying engineering. (see AWE Self-Efficacy Literature Overview and Information on Self-Efficacy). LAESE can be used with any students studying engineering. A High School instrument, based on LAESE, was developed and tested by the Female Recruits ... »
  • Students Leaving Engineering Survey
    Date: 08/04/2007
    Resource Category: Survey
    Retention of students in engineering continues to be of concern. To best address this area, we need to know what contributes to both students persisting in engineering and what contributes to their leaving. ... »
  • Students Persisting in Engineering Survey
    Date: 08/04/2007
    Resource Category: Survey
    Retention of students in engineering continues to be of concern. To best address this area, we need to know what contributes to both students persisting in engineering and what contributes to their leaving. The persisting in engineering instrument is designed to measure both male and female student’s reasons for persisting in engineering programs. ... »
  • Exploring Physics Confidence Survey
    Date: 08/11/1998
    Resource Category: Research and Evaluation Instruments
    This evaluation instrument was developed for Exploring Physics, an extra curricular program for 5-7 grade students, with a focus on female students. It is part of an NSF funded program entitled Promoting Young Women in the Physical Sciences. ... »
