Our research questions are: What are the factors, as reported by Noyce scholarship recipients, that are perceived to be related to entry into the teaching profession? What are the factors, as reported by Noyce scholarship recipients, that are perceived to be related to persistence in the teaching profession?
This is a qualitative study, using open-ended survey questions. Questionnaires were distributed to approximately 40 Noyce scholars who have finished their teaching education and have entered their postsecondary careers.
Data collection and analysis are ongoing. Key deliverables will include coded and analyzed survey results.
These results will contribute to our understanding how and why Noyce scholars choose to enter and remain in the classroom.
