The Iowa STEM Monitoring Project (ISMP) is a multi-faceted and collaborative effort that works in support of the Iowa Governor’s STEM Advisory Council. ISMP partners include the University of Northern Iowa (UNI) Center for Social and Behavioral Research (CSBR), the Iowa State University (ISU) Research Institute for Studies in Education (RISE), and Iowa Testing Programs (ITP) at the University of Iowa (UI). The purpose of the ISMP is to systematically observe a series of defined metrics and sources to examine changes regarding STEM education and economic development in Iowa centered on the activities of the Iowa Governor’s STEM Advisory Council. The ISMP is comprised of four components: 1) Iowa STEM Indicators System (ISIS); 2) Statewide Survey of Public Attitudes Toward STEM; 3) Statewide Student Interest Inventory; and 4) Regional Scale-Up Program Monitoring. Data for these four components come from publicly available data at the national, state, and regional levels (component 1); nearly 1,900 Iowans who participated in a statewide survey (component 2); over 21,000 student surveys from the over 100,000 students statewide who participated in a Scale-Up program (component 3 and 4), and the almost 600 Scale-Up educators who completed a teacher/leader survey (component 4).
