Evaluation of the National Science Foundation's Local Course Improvement Program, Volume II: Quantitative Analyses.
Kulik, James A.; And Others
This report is the second of three volumes describing the results of the evaluation of the National Science Foundation (NSF) Local Course Improvement (LOCI) program. This volume describes the quantitative results of the program. Evaluation of the LOCI program involved answering questions in the areas of the need for science course improvement as perceived by college teachers, the profile of applicants for LOCI awards, appropriateness of program guidelines, and outcomes of LOCI projects. To answer these questions, data were collected using several different methods and populations. This volume presents the results from a survey of a national sample of teachers of undergraduate science and engineering on needs for local course improvement, presents the profile of applicants for LOCI awards, describes LOCI award recipients and their projects, describes the responses of project directors and department chairpersons to LOCI project outcome questionnaires, and describes LOCI outcomes as indicated by project directors in their final reports.
