Abstract

Attitudinal data were gathered from 160 high school students participating in their second year of a residential science and mathematics program on at university campus in which they finish their last two years of high school in conjunction with their first two years in college. Instruments employed assessed dispositions toward Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) content and careers. Data were analyzed in comparison to data gathered on the same instruments from other groups of students and teachers. Findings were that the residential early admissions students had STEM dispositions more similar to STEM education professionals and less similar to traditional high school students. Analyses of disaggregated data characteristics based on attributes such as gender are presented.
