MISO is a North Carolina State University campus-wide project funded by the National Science Foundation. The project seeks to determine the collective STEM impact of the university through its pre-college outreach and extension programs. A critical part of this project is the longitudinal assessment of participant outcomes through development and collection of common STEM outreach evaluation survey instruments. The project aims to define valid survey methods and measurable outcomes around teacher efficacy in teaching STEM and student attitudes toward STEM content and careers through the use of factor analysis and other statistical methods. In the future, individual survey responses will be linked with participant information from North Carolina's longitudinal education databases to provide a clear view of teacher and student success in STEM.
