National Science Foundation-Supported Science Education Materials: Problems in Evaluation, Distribution, and Monitoring. Report to the Congress by the Comptroller General of the United States.
Comptroller General of the U.S., Washington, DC.
After a study of ten science education projects receiving NSF financing, the GAO concludes that evaluation of educational materials needs more attention, distribution efforts should be strengthened, and a need exists for more active and systematic project monitoring. Chapter 1 of this document gives a general review of NSF activities and funding policies; Chapters 2, 3, and 4 respectively report details of evaluation, distribution, and monitoring efforts of the ten science education projects; and Chapter 5 discusses the scope of the NSF review. Appendices list the ten NSF-supported science education projects (along with a general project description, types of materials produced by that project, and amount of funding for each project), NSF responses to the GAO recommendations, and names of NSF officials responsible for administrative activities discussed in the report.
