Adapting to Change: Studying Undergraduate Research in the Current Education Environment

Keywords: assessment student outcomes external validity student success

Author: David Lopatto
Institution: Grinnell College
Issue and Volume: SPUR fall 2017, vol 1, no 1

Description: Given that science and science education are undergoing a climate change, the author suggests a re-envisioning of undergraduate research assessment. He argues that continuation of research into the processes and benefits of undergraduate research opportunities for undergraduates will need to decrease focus on student dispositions and increase attention to the external validity of programs.
