Science and Engineering Education: Data and Information.
Buccino, Alphonse; And Others
Science and Engineering Education data and information are presented in six chapters, each chapter containing detailed statistical charts and tables. Resources data contained in chapter 1 are grouped into four categories: K-12, higher education, funding, and informal education. Resources may take the form of capital, personnel, and teaching materials and may be expressed in types of educational programs offered, curricula used, and amount of time spent on them. Chapter 2 presents data on how many and what kinds of people participate in science, mathematics, and technology education and what form that participation takes. Chapter 3 focuses on student, faculty, and public attitudes, goals, and needs concerning science and mathematics education. Test data are examined in chapter 4. Degree data in chapter 5 are grouped into three categories: total number of earned degrees by subject and level, percent distribution of earned degrees by subject and level, and degree and distribution data for women and minorities. Science/engineering employment data (focusing on employment and salaries) are presented in chapter 6. Each chapter begins with an introduction and highlights of the data presented therein.
