For this fellowship you will identify or draft measurement items, test these measures, and ultimately field a fully tested questionnaire on an online panel of respondents to generate data for a future Public Perceptions of Science (PPS) chapter in NCSES Science and Engineering Indicators (SEIs). You will draft measurements of a respondent’s: level of science literacy, exposure to science, science information-seeking behaviors, and attitudes toward science. As a fellow in the NCSES Research Ambassadors Program, you will have the opportunity to independently utilize your skills and engage with experts in innovative ideas to move the proposed research forward. In addition, you will learn from top researchers and subject matter experts in data analysis, statistics, economics, science policy, research and more. You will gain real world experience in cutting edge research from the world’s premier source for data and information on the science and engineering enterprise.
