Engineering Student Outcomes for Grades 9-12
Childress, Vincent; Rhodes, Craig
Technology Teacher, v67 n7 p5-12 Apr 2008
In the fall of 2004, the National Center for Engineering and Technology Education (NCETE) secured funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) in order to infuse engineering design into the schools through technology education. As a basic step in reaching this goal, the researchers, in cooperation with NCETE, designed a study to answer the following specific research question, the findings and implications of which are the focus of this article: What are the "engineering" student outcomes that prospective engineering students in Grades 9 through 12 should know and be able to do prior to entry into a postsecondary engineering program? For the purpose of answering this question, statements of outcomes of student achievement were sought through a modified Delphi study. (Contains 3 tables.)
