rationale or motivation for the study

Coley, J.D., & Tanner, K. D.  (2012). Common Origins of Diverse Misconceptions: Cognitive Principles and the Development of Biology Thinking. CBE-Life Sciences Education, 11, 209-215

Describes possible causes of misconceptions across disciplines from cognitive psych  research,  possible guidelines for identifying ,  Do apply to BIOC  vs  others? May help interpreting reasons for misconceptions

 

Packard, B.W., Gagnon, J.L., LaBelle, O., Jeffers, K., Lynn, E. (2011) Women’s Experiences in the STEM community College Transfer Pathway. Journal of Women and Minorities in Science and Engineering 17(2), 129-147

Interviewes with 30 Massachusetts community college studetns in last year and in 1rst year after transfer to 4year college. 26 transfer, 22 persistet, but

Experiences  in Community college positive ( inspiring professors, peer support, helpful advising reasons for success)= not unlike BA/MD program experience? However after transfer struggeled in at least 1 class faster pace, less support. NEED to check if they probed readiness and study skills relation and exact Qs.

Alignment of curricula exception not rule

 

design of the study

Barr, D.A., Matsui, J, Wanat, S.F., Gonzalez, E. M. (2010) Chemistry courses as the turning point  for premedical students. Adv in Health Sci Educ. 15:45–54

at risk:  URM and women ( authors prev study). Here  UC Berkley survey at entry and after 2 yrs ( likert style assessing their interest in medschool, breakdown for ethnicity). Follow up interviews with premedsprobing for most discouraging courses ( biochem was not specified

In addition the NSF academic pathways study  can be a model

importance of authentic research experiences for retention including premeds. Example for survey, survey mechanics and statistical analysis ( BUSP-NIH Career Path Survey instrument)

interpretation of the results.

Barr, D.A., Matsui, J, Wanat, S.F., Gonzalez, E. M. (2010) Chemistry courses as the turning point  for premedical students. Adv in Health Sci Educ. 15:45–54

Could be useful should we see any correlation in terms of ethnicity, a major concern nationwide and of special interest in NM. However UNM population much different than Berkley.

UC Berkley survey at entry and after 2 yrs ( likert style )assessing their interest in medschool, breakdown for ethnicity. Follow up interviews with premeds probing for most discouraging courses ( biochem was not specified, but chem).  At risk URM and women (authors prev study).
