Inverness Research's Independent Evaluation of the American Museum of Natural History's Seminars on Science

Inverness Research studied the AMNH Seminars on Science program in depth for eight years, from its inception in 1998 to 2006. Since then Inverness has continued to evaluate newly developed courses. Below are links to a series of evaluation reports for these courses.

Summary report. This report discusses the unique qualities of SoS courses and evaluates the ways in which and extent to which the courses contribute to the strengthening of science teaching. It contains analysis of the course design and rigor; survey results from teachers taking the courses; and the assessments of teachers, school and district administrators, and independent experts in science education about the nature and value of the courses.
