RURAL EDUCATORS ENGAGED IN BIOANALYTICAL ENGINEERING RESEARCH AND TEACHING (RET III)

CEDaR is an external evaluator for the RET III Project (Rural Educators Engaged in Bioanalytical Engineering Research and Teaching). Funded by the NSF, this program recruits rural Oklahoma educators as participants with the goal of increasing teacher self-efficacy in teaching STEM concepts to rural students.

 

Oklahoma Arts Council (OAC) – Arts in Alternative Education Program Evaluation 

CEDaR is working to assist the OAC in creating and evaluating grant reports and surveys that are formed to align with the program’s objectives and outcomes. These feedback reports help ensure the program and artist residency is positively affecting students in alternative education in regard to student engagement, learning loss, and attendance.
