Abstract Title: Survey development and analysis for Getting the Facts Out
Abstract: Following the development of the PTaP - Perceptions of Teaching as a Profession – survey, which measures students' interest in and views of teaching as a career, we developed the PTaP.HE (p-taffy) - Perceptions of Teaching as a Profession for Higher Education - which measures university faculty's perceptions of teaching as a profession. As part of the development and validation of the PTaP.HE instrument we have conducted faculty interviews, collected large-scale data from over 40 institutions, and conducted statistical analyses including a factor analysis. Here we will share the outcomes of the factor analysis, a scoring strategy, and preliminary results. We will also discuss the potential impact of faculty perceptions of the teaching profession on our future science and math teacher workforce.
