NSF 14-056 Dear Colleague Letter - New Science and Engineering Indicators for K-12 Stem Education

Type: Foundations
Source: National Science Foundation’s Directorate for Education and Human Resources
Program: NSF 14-056 Dear Colleague Letter - New Science and Engineering Indicators for K-12 Stem Education
Eligibility:
Purpose:

The purpose of this DCL is to invite EAGER proposals to conduct exploratory work in its early stages on untested but potentially transformative research ideas of approaches necessary to move forward to design and develop measures of one or more of these indicators for use in monitoring and improving the STEM education system. Proposers should consult the NSF Proposal and Award Policies and Procedures Guide for guidance on how to submit an EAGER proposalhttp://www.nsf.gov/pubs/policydocs/pappguide/nsf14001/gpg_2.jsp#IID2.

Since measures and the associated data for many of these indicators are not yet available, it is anticipated that many of the submitted EAGER projects may consist of:

  1. Research that would lead to the development of consensus among STEM educators about the nature and operational definitions of some of these indicators;
  2. A review and synthesis of the current state of the evidence base as they might map the development of measures of these indicators; and/or
  3. Recommendations for how to best move forward to create measures of the indicator of interest.
