Commentary on future teachers data:

  • The elementary science field experience interns are preservice teachers. Since the vast majority of Physical Science I students hope to be admitted to the preservice teaching program, these students are also included as impacted future teachers.

Commentary on enrollment data:

  • Variations in enrollment data are largely due to the number of course sections as offered per semester.
  • Student counts were obtained from final grade data sheets, and as such do not include students who withdrew from the course.
  • Students take the Earth-Space Science course and Teaching Science in Elementary School course as a cohort; therefore, the students in these two courses are typically the same students and as such only count one time as future teachers.
