Maloy and computer science faculty research high school STEM participation

Robert Maloy, senior lecturer, Department of Teacher Education and Curriculum Studies, and Lynn Stephens, Department of Computer Science, were awarded $424,867 from the National Science Foundation to develop adaptive tutoring technologies to help increase the participation in mathematics of underrepresented populations that often avoid STEM careers. Their research will examine the impact of affective interventions on the performance, learning, affect and attitudes of 800 high school students nationwide, and the value of tailoring different types of interventions for individual students and specific groups.
