Jenkins, Felysha L. – ProQuest LLC, 2012
Despite the odds, African American women are achieving some success in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). However, a dearth of empirical evidence exists on the mechanisms that contribute to their persistence. This study contributes to understanding how African American women are successful in obtaining baccalaureate degrees…

Friedman, Adam D.; Melendez, Carlos R.; Bush, Antonio A.; Lai, Samuel K.; McLaughlin, Jacqueline E. – International Journal of STEM Education, 2017
Background: Professional schools, such as schools of pharmacy, are rarely involved with promoting STEM interests among secondary school students. To address this shortcoming, the Young Innovators Program (YIP) was created to provide local secondary school students a summer immersive experiential program at the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy. The…

Jones, M. Gail; Childers, Gina; Emig, Brandon; Chevrier, Joël; Tan, Hong; Stevens, Vanessa; List, Jonathan – Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, 2014
Traditional science instruction is typically reliant on visual modes of learning, such as textbooks and graphs. Furthermore, since science instruction is often heavily dependent upon visual cues, students with visual impairment often do not have access to the same educational opportunities in most science classes (Jones, Minogue, Oppewal, Cook,…

Dong, Nianbo; Reinke, Wendy M.; Herman, Keith C.; Bradshaw, Catherine P.; Murray, Desiree W. – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2015
Cluster randomized experiments are now widely used to examine intervention effects in prevention science. It is meaningful to use empirical benchmarks for interpreting effect size in prevention science. The effect size (i.e., the standardized mean difference, calculated by the difference of the means between the treatment and control groups,…
