About This Special Issue
Educational research is a discipline that can be examined at all levels and institutions as a measure to improve academic achievement, self-efficacy, leadership, equity, motivation, social-emotional learning, cognitive, and social development. To better understand how to meet the needs of learners, it is essential to evaluate quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods approaches and their impact. Developments from these studies can aid in facilitating strategies to support the needs of learners.
The primary goal of this special issue is to explore educational research within STEM postbaccalaureate pathway programs. We invite contributions that explore educational research, with particular interest in the transition into graduate programs, STEM, social sciences, or higher education.
Through this special issue, we aim to explore descriptive, correlational, experimental, and exploratory research designs, which includes but is not limited to multidisciplinary studies.
