1 Scopus citations


The Kentucky Electronics Education Project (KEEP) uses microelectronics to develop standards-based maths, science and technology curricula. KEEP provides training and support for teachers to build electronic circuits in their classrooms. This study examines over 200 student evaluations collected during Spring 2003 and 2004 of KEEP implementations. Rasch analysis and descriptive statistics indicate high student satisfaction with KEEP activities and a desire to learn more about the themes of the project. The goal of the project is to develop a K-16 learning environment, where students, teachers, university faculty and higher education students are engaged in curriculum development and enhancement.
