The Use of New York State Regents Exams to Guide MSPinNYC Decision-Making to Build an Effective Model of the Urban STEM Classrooms

Summary

High stakes, end-of-course Regents exams are used to guide the development and implementation of a new model for the urban science and mathematics classroom: the Peer Enabled Restructured Classroom (PERC). PERC is a collaborative, peer-led pedagogy that is implemented daily in the classroom and thus restructures teaching and learning. We demonstrate the use of Regents data to steer the project including: as an outcome variable for a pseudo-field trial, to create "non-negotiable" features of the model, and to define one of the most significant aspects of the model - the selection and training of the peer leaders.
