  • The above K-6 data are from the university’s Annual Title II Report filed with the US Department of Education.
  • The 7-12 reflects statistics provided by Ball State University’s Office of Teaching Services and are the graduates for Fall Semester, Spring Semester, and Summer Semester graduation.   The drop in enrollments during 2001-2003 was due to new state licensure requirements. These enrollments have since increased.

  • The TIRs of the three previous years are in the Ball State University area community.  They have met with the Ball State PhysTEC Team members during the past year, and are still in contact with selected mentees
  • Formal PhysTEC support was withdrawn from the eight (8) area Middle School Science Teachers mentored by Mike Wolter in 2003-04; excluding that category, the numbers grew after the first years of the program.  At one point during the project, mentoring of graduates that were not produced by the PhysTEC institution was discouraged.
  • The decrease in the number of physics teachers mentored in 2007-2008 reflects no PhysTEC support for a new TIR, and minimal support for past TIRs.
