The 2006 survey is the seventh annual survey of the National Science Foundation's (NSF) Advanced Technological Education (ATE) program conducted by The Evaluation Center. This survey collects information about the general characteristics of the ATE program's grantees and their work activities, accomplishments, and impacts. This fact sheet presents selected survey indicators of the overall program. NSF's (2005) ATE program guidelines call for funded projects, centers, and partnerships to engage in one or more of the following work categories: (1) developing instructional materials for national dissemination; (2) providing professional development to increase the capabilities of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics educators; (3) improving instructional programs at the secondary, associate, and baccalaureate levels; and (4) establishing formal articulation agreements with other institutions. The 2006 survey addressed these efforts via 7 sections, of which 3 (grantee characteristics, organizational practices, and collaboration) were required for all respondents and 4 (materials development, professional development, program improvement, and articulation agreements) were required only for those grantees significantly engaged in the specified work activity. (Contains 7 tables and 4 footnotes.)
