The education research component of the Pulsar Search Collaboratory (PSC) seeks to determine how the PSC experience affects the science identity and STEM career intentions of its participants and how individual programmatic elements influence persistence. These questions are investigated by comparing pre-­‐survey and post-­‐survey results and by examining the participant’s interaction with the PSC online portal.

This report d pre/posistilled t survey data that examines student participants’ STEM intentions along a number of dimensions: Science/Engineering Identity, Self-­‐Efficacy, Science Career Interest, and Sense of Belonging. Each construct is probed with multiple Likert scale questions.

Survey items are given in the appendix.
