SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Abstract

    NASA's founding legislation, the Space Act of 1958, as amended, 
directs the agency to expand human knowledge of Earth and space 
phenomena and to preserve the role of the United States as a leader in 
aeronautics, space science, and technology. The NASA Office of STEM 
Engagement administers the agency's national education activities in 
support of the Space Act, including the performance measurement and 
evaluation of educational projects and programs. This generic clearance 
will allow the NASA Office of STEM Engagement to continue to test and 
pilot with subject matter experts, secondary students, higher education 
students, educators, and interested parties new and existing 
information collection forms and assessment instruments for the 
purposes of improvement and establishing validity and reliability 
characteristics of the forms and instruments. Existing information 
collections include the NASA Intern Survey (Retrospective Survey), NASA 
Internship Applicants and Awardees Survey (Retrospective Survey), STEM 
Challenges Impact Surveys (Educator Feedback Retrospective Survey), 
STEM Challenges Impact Surveys (Parent Survey), and STEM Challenges 
Impact Surveys (Student Retrospective Survey). Forms and instruments to 
be tested include program application forms, customer satisfaction 
questionnaires, focus group protocols, and project activity survey 
instruments. Methodological testing will include focus group 
discussions, pilot surveys to test new individual question items as 
well as the complete form and instrument. In addition, test-retest and 
similar protocols will be used to determine reliability characteristics 
of the forms and instruments. Methodological testing will assure that 
forms and instruments accurately and consistently collect and measure 
what they are intended to measure and that data collection items are 
interpreted precisely and consistently, all towards the goal of 
accurate Agency reporting while improving the execution of NASA STEM 
Engagement activities.
