New Resource for STEM Education Professionals

The ITEST National STEM Learning Resource Center launched a new STEM Education Instrument Database that shares the collective knowledge of ITEST projects with the STEM education community. Developed by EDC's Alyssa Na’im, Enrique Colón-Bacó, and Dot Wheeler, the database includes publically available, externally validated instruments that measure 18 individual constructs, categorized in five domains.

The database describes the constructs the instruments measure, details the instruments’ validity and reliability, and, in some cases, provides links to the instruments.

"We started with 44 instruments being used by ITEST projects," said Colón-Bacó. "We plan to keep adding validated instruments of interest to the ITEST community as well as STEM educators in general."

The STEM Education Instrument Database includes a feature that allows users to suggest additional instruments.
