On the Establishment of a Pedagogical Protocol for STEM Education

Public Deposited

A full description of how a STEM protocol model can be an effective and comprehensive implementation of a complete initiative program. A discussion of the factors affecting student comprehension, progress, and cognitive development is made. A historical discussion of STEM policy and programs is included, as is an assessment program in the context of student learning outcomes. A complete STEM protocol design is presented, and an inferential statistical study is made regarding student progress, factors influencing learning, performance, cognitive development, applications-oriented skills, and long-term acquisition of knowledge and performance. A survey was done on an incoming introductory physics course that measured Pre-test and post skills. Inferential statistics were performed, and an analysis of the data was done to measure cognitive and deductive and analytical skills. An ANOVA statistical study was done on Pre-tests and concomitant post-tests, and a comparison of the results was conducted to determine the need for gradual development and influential factors that determine positive results. A t-test was also done to determine the actual differences in the means between pre- and post-tests. In addition, a qualitative survey was conducted to measure the influences and factors determining STEM learning. Then the data sources were compared against each other for themes that were supported across all the data. A critical analysis is made of the STEM methodological protocols along with inferential variables of influence enumerated. It was found that an actively engaged student population can have a direct and positive influence on developing STEM cognitive skills.
