Draw An Engineer Quick Code

Description of Project:
Change in elementary students’ conceptions of engineering has been studied using the Draw-an-
Engineering Test (DAET) prior to and following a curriculum intervention. This instrument asks
students to draw an engineer doing engineering work and then write about what the engineer is
doing, typically in a sentence or two. The purpose of this study is to further analyze the effectiveness of teacher professional
development and teacher practices through a simplified analysis of student drawings.
