Assessing Toward Equity in STEM
Investigator Team: Nathan Wood, Assistant Professor, School of Education and Erika Offerdahl, Assistant Professor, Chemistry and Molecular Biology
Abstract: Gender bias is an ubiquitous and persistent issue in STEM education which is institutionalized though gender-biased assessments. Therefore, this project will examine the gender bias inherent in STEM assessments with the goal of better understanding gender bias in assessment and producing examples of equitable assessments, as well as a knowledge base for the design of future assessments, that will provide a means to drive systemic reform in STEM education.
