The Center for Teaching and Learning Engineering seeks to accomplish its mission through research in the scholarship of teaching and learning, promoting evidence-based teaching strategies.
This study demonstrates the use of multidimensional item response theory (MIRT) to investigate an instrument's factor structure.
This paper analyzed longitudinal data from the University of Louisville's J. B. Speed School of Engineering to better understand the relationship between 1) progression and performance in the required mathematics courses for all engineering majors, 2) retention in engineering (year 1 and year 2) and 3) persistence to graduation.
