Abt Associates, Inc.
NSF’s GK–12 program funds projects that provide graduate students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines with training that will prepare them for professional and scientific careers. The projects establish relationships between graduate students and teachers in K–12 schools, with the goal of improving graduate students’ communication and teaching skills while enriching STEM instruction in K–12 schools. Abt Associates conducted an evaluation of the GK–12 program. As a subcontractor, HRI designed questionnaires for K–12 teachers and district coordinators, as well as provided technical assistance on the overall evaluation.
