Lopez, J. & Quirke, M. (2018). Assessment of a Science Identity Development Model with Minority STEM Community College Students: Did it Work? Poster presentation at the Assessment Institute, Indianapolis, IN.
Abstract: IN LSAMP implemented a pilot program examining professional development for minority community college students serving as Learning Assistants in Gateway courses. The goal was to prepare students for a competitive summer research internship by focusing on increasing student’s self-efficacy and their STEM professional identity. Presenters share the theories behind the design, challenges faced in the early stages, and how working proactively with faculty mentors and administrators improved student confidence and increased the number of students accepted into competitive research programs. Evidence provided from the mixed-method study highlights the success of the program and future plans for sustainability and scalability.
