Tolley, Patricia A.; Blat, Catherine; McDaniel, Christopher; Blackmon, Donald; Royster, David – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2012
Several studies strongly support the relationship between mathematics performance and retention of engineering students. There is also substantial evidence that nationally almost half of college freshmen could benefit from some mathematics remediation. The purpose of this study was to determine if the use of WeBWorK as an instructional technology…

Reid, Kenneth J. – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2012
Ethics is among the professional skills embedded in the first year engineering curriculum in many institutions. The general format of the study of ethics is similar to many other institutions: student teams review case studies and develop written and oral presentations on the ethical issues encountered. This report investigates whether the use of…

Sevier, Carol; Chyung, Seung Youn; Callahan, Janet; Schrader, Cheryl B. – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2012
A quasi-experimental study was conducted to investigate the effectiveness of using a service learning (SL) method on influencing introductory engineering students' motivation and ABET program outcomes, compared to the effectiveness of using a conventional, non-service-learning (NSL) method. The sample used in the study was 214 students enrolled in…
