Innovative Technology Experiences for Students and Teachers (ITEST)

Type: Federal
Source: National Science Foundation
Program: Innovative Technology Experiences for Students and Teachers (ITEST)
Eligibility:
The categories of proposers eligible to submit proposals to
the National Science Foundation are identified in the Grant
Proposal Guide, Chapter I, Section E.

Purpose:
The ITEST program through research and model-building
activities seeks to build understandings of best practice factors,
contexts and processes contributing to K-12 students' motivation
and participation in the science, 1technology, engineering, and
mathematics (STEM) core domains along with other STEM cognate
domains (e.g.,information and communications technology (ICT),
computing, computer sciences, data analytics, among others) that
inform education programs and workforce domains. The ITEST program
funds foundational and applied

research projects addressing the development, implementation,
and dissemination of innovative strategies, tools, and models for
engaging students to be aware of STEM and cognate careers, and to
pursue formal school-based and informal out-of-school educational
experiences to prepare for such careers. ITEST supports projects
that: (1) increase students' awareness of STEM and cognate
careers; (2) motivate students to pursue the appropriate education
pathways for STEM and cognate careers; and/or (3) provide students
with technology-rich experiences

that develop disciplinary-based knowledge and practices, and
non-cognitive skills (e.g., critical thinking and communication
skills) needed for entering STEM workforce sectors. ITEST projects
may adopt an interdisciplinary

focus on one or more STEM domains or focus on sub
discipline(s) within a domain. ITEST projects must involve
students, and may also include teachers. ITEST is especially
interested in broadening participation of student

groups from traditionally underrepresented in STEM and cognate
intensive education and workforce domains.



Strongly encouraged are projects that actively engage business
and industry to better ensure K-12 experiences are likely to foster
the skill-sets of emerging STEM and cognate careers. ITEST supports
two project types:

Strategies and SPrEaD (Successful Project Expansion and
Dissemination) projects. Strategies projects address the creation
and implementation of innovative technology-related interventions
that support ITEST's objectives.

SPrEaD projects support the wider and broader dissemination
and examination of innovative interventions to generate evidence
and understanding regarding contextual factors that operate to
enhance, moderate, or constrain the desired results. All ITEST
projects include activities designed to inform judgments regarding
the feasibility of implementing strategies in typical delivery
settings such as classrooms and out-of-school settings.
