Developing Indicators for Undergraduate STEM Education
Public Comment Open Session

October 6, 2016

This meeting provided an avenue for the public to comment on the preliminary draft report from the Committee on Developing Indicators for Undergraduate STEM Education. The committee was tasked by the National Science Foundation to outline a framework and a set of indicators that could be used to monitor the quality of undergraduate STEM over multiple years. The draft represents the first phase of the committee's work and contains goals and objectives for improving the quality of undergraduate STEM education. The committee requested input on the draft to assist it in developing indicators in the second phase of the study.

This public comment session featured speakers providing: insight from community college perspectives, STEM reform imitative reflections, institutional perspectives, implications for using data to improve teaching and learning, and challenges of measuring progress toward increased equity in STEM.
This public comment session also provided time for comments from participants present and includes comments gathered from the online questionnaire.
