Dyslexia and Science Dyslexia and Science (2007)
We are investigating under a grant from NSF a hypothesis that people with dyslexia, because of differences in neurology, may be predisposed to certain forms of visual processing that are useful in science, specifically looking at how dyslexia affects abilities of astronomers to analyze image-processed data.
MOSART Web Site MOSART Web Site (2006)
Project MOSART intends to enhance the quality of K-12 science teaching and aid in generating evidence-based outcomes of learning through the development of comprehensive subject matter assessment tools. The Web site was created to enhance communication and collaboration between partners within the MOSART project as well as to inform the public of the efforts of the Math and Science Partnership Program.
FICSS Web Site FICSS Web Site (2005)
Relationships between the decisions that high school science teachers and their students make affect the success of students in their introductory college science courses. FICSS developed surveys that characterize students' choices of high school science courses taken and teachers' choices about pedagogy and curricula in these courses. This interactive, video-based Web site communicates the results of the survey given to 18,000 students.
Understandings of Consequence Understandings of Consequence (2005)
Web site and DVD providing professional development for educators using the Understandings of Consequence curricula in their classrooms.
