Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice, v54 n3 p286-302 2017
As nations have sought to keep pace with rapid technological innovation, governments have renewed their focus on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education, with emphasis on developing both technical and non-technical skills in STEM students.

The authors then validate this framework using two methods.
