Description/Abstract

The ERAU team will share their story of a well-meaning University President who asked the staff at the Office of Undergraduate Research, “How many of our students know how to do a Chi square test or know what a regression slope is?” The answer lead them on a two-year epic journey to find out what research methods are taught on their STEM-focused campus and if one research methods survey course could serve all majors. After consulting numerous texts, scholarly sources, and interviews, a list of nearly 125 data collection and analysis techniques was created and defined for dissemination to undergraduate course monitors. A glossary, preliminary survey data, limitations, and lessons learned will all be presented.
