The Individual Learner
System Co-Managers: Ralph Mason & Barbara McMillan
Associated Research Focus: How do attributes of the learner combine to impede, contribute to, and sustain personal science and mathematics success?
Objectives: (1) to identify personal attribute factors that impede or support the learning of science and mathematics in formal school settings; (2) to identify the risk and protective factors that affect decisions to further study science and mathematics; and (3) to identify the course trajectories of students in relation to demographic and achievement data as they progress through the school system.
