An Analysis of Supported Projects to Test Methods for Increasing the Access of Ethnic Minority Students to Careers in Science and Technology. Volume I, Executive Summary.
Aronson, Joel B.
Volume I of this report summarizes an evaluation of eleven projects which were designed to test mechanisms for increasing the access of ethnic minority students to careers in science and technology. The goals of the evaluation were threefold: to document the experience of the several projects in order to make that experience available to future efforts, to weigh the potential of each project's intervention strategy for more general application, and to recommend both policy and administrative changes which would improve procedures for the evaluation of new experimental project proposals. Recorded in Volume I are overviews of the study's methodology, major findings, conclusions, and recommendations. Brief descriptions of each of the eleven projects are given, followed by a general discussion covering ways in which the projects could be improved upon in terms of management and evaluation. Flow patterns diagramming the typical educational experiences for different minority groups are included along with a review of recent minority science education intervention attempts. (DT)
