ARISE—Advancing Research and Innovation in the STEM Education of Preservice Teachers
2015 - 2018

CCT is serving as external evaluator for ARISE, a project of the American Assocation for the Advancement of Science and the Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program of the National Science Foundation. The project will synthesize what is known about effective practices and strategies for attracting, selecting, and preparing new K–12 STEM teachers, and how to retain them in the STEM teacher workforce. It also will identify areas for future research on these topics.

Our evaluation of the ARISE project is examining changes in NSF Noyce teacher education and in other programs, including changes in (1) who is doing research about teacher education and (b) innovations in STEM teacher education, including changes in
