Professor

My name is Wayne Welch and I am a retired professor from the University of Minnesota. My special interests are program evaluation and STEM education. I have worked with the ATE program in several ways: I chaired the advisory panel for the ATE evaluation project at Western Michigan University from 1998 to 2006; along with Bob Reineke, I wrote the Handbook for National Research Committees; and I have had two Targeted Research Grants (2008 – 2014) to study the impact and sustainability of the ATE program

You know your project’s goals. And you know you need to measure your progress toward reaching them. You probably even know whether a survey questionnaire would help you measure that progress. But what sort of questions belong on a survey instrument? And how should they be worded? This webinar will explain the questionnaire development process, using ATE survey work as examples. Along with the EvaluATE team, Candiya Mann will showcase her work and we’ll feature Wayne Welch as a discussant, sharing his process of establishing face and content validity with a method that is practical for most ATE projects and centers. Both examples emphasize the importance of thinking from a measurement perspective to get more trustworthy data.
