STEM Central

A Community of Practice for NSF STEM Projects

Collecting, Organizing, and Making use of Data

Community Working Group

This working group is intended to facilitate continued discussion and action to improve our ability to collect and organize for STEP projects. Subscribe to this group and receive updates on new resources related to this topic.  You can also participate by sharing your ideas, posting existing resources, or collaborating with others in this group to develop and disseminate needed resources and tools that can improve our ability to track student data and evaluate student success in STEM fields.  We encourage participation from anyone interested in improving undergraduate education. Please join us!

Group facilitators, please check out this resource: Top tips for moderators of online discussion groups.

This working group was initiated at the 2012 STEP Meeting, held March 13-15, 2012.  We thank the following leaders for helping to get the conversation started: Rahman Tashakkori – Appalachian State University and Jose Herrera – NSF
