BPC Works with Tennessee Technological University

Project Summary:

BPC provides external grant evaluation to the Tennessee Technological University’s (TTU) National Science Foundation (NSF) STEP grant.  This 5 year and $2.5 million dollar project helps to create a pipeline of better educated secondary math students to TTU so they are prepared as they enter and are successful as they attend TTU as Math majors.  K-12 and Univeristy partnership articulation agreements, professional development, and curriculum development sessions are utilized to create pathways that are educationally rigorous as well as responsive to the private sector workforce needs.  BPC has worked with the TTU NSF grant leadership on IRB protocols, instruments, and data collection systems.  Capacity building work sessions as well as data retreats to discuss and utilize project and evaluation data are part of BPC’s work at TTU.  BPC also generates an annual external evaluation report and assists TTU with required NSF reports (STEP-April annually and Fast Lane-May annually).
