Compendium of Research Instruments for STEM Education Part 1: Teacher Practices, PCK, and Content Knowledge


This compendium of measures is Part I of a two part series to provide insight into the measurement tools available to generate efficacy and effectiveness evidence, as well as understand processes relevant to teaching and learning. The information presented in this compendium was gathered through a review of five cohorts of DR-K12 funded-projects' proposed instruments. The projects were funded from 2008-2012. The authors focused on instruments designed to assess teacher practices, pedagogical content knowledge, and content knowledge.
The purpose of this compendium is to provide an overview on the current status of STEM instrumentation commonly being used in the US and to provide resources useful to research and evaluation professionals.
