Proposed Collection: Title: The Effectiveness of the NIH Curriculum Supplements and Workshops Survey. Information Collection Request: New. Need and Use of Information Collection: The survey will attempt to assess the Average burden hours per response 24 24 Total burden hours 1,296 1,296 effectiveness of the NIH curriculum supplements in aiding teachers to teach science in a more engaging and interactive way. The supplements help k–12 educators teach science in more engaging and effective ways by featuring the latest NIH research. A typical supplement contains two weeks of student activities on the science behind a health topic, such as cancer, sleep or obesity. Web-based simulations, animations and experiments enhance the ‘‘pencil and paper’’ activities. In addition to developing and distributing the supplements, OSE conducts professional workshops to help teachers successfully implement these lessons with their students. Since January 2000, over 3,000 teachers have attended an OSE workshop. Assessing the effectiveness of the NIH Curriculum Supplements and teacher workshops is critical to determining if OSE is successfully fulfilling its mission. OSE has the database infrastructure in place to easily collect customer satisfaction data from supplement requesters and workshop attendees. At present, we do not have clearance to contact our customers to determine how NIH resources are meeting their educational needs.
