Description/Abstract

The purpose of the student was to determine whether ninth-grade honors biology students participating in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) Academy have developed a higher capacity to think critically when compared with other honors biology students who are not in the STEM Academy. The participants for the study were 132 ninth-grade students in a north Georgia high school. A content test will be administered to the participants one time. The test was modified from four biology concept inventories. The data collected will be analyzed using a BIT Coding method. The results for the study may show whether the STEM or non-STEM group will outperform the other based on the assessment. Faculty Adviser: Sanghee Choi.
