Factors with the Greatest Impact on Safety in Pennsylvania's T&E Courses

This study used the 2020 T&E Education - Facilities and Safety Survey (TEE-FASS) to collect responses via online survey software in the spring of 2020. The TEE-FASS was developed by making minor modifications to the 2001 Texas Science Safety Survey (Stephenson et al., 2003) to more accurately represent safety issues unique to T&E education. The instrument was reviewed by two national STEM education safety specialists and pilot tested among a small sample of T&E teachers to make additional changes and establish face validity. It was then advertised by ITEEA and TEEAP which yielded 718 total responses from 42 states, of which 67 responses (9% of the national sample) were teachers from Pennsylvania school districts. For the purpose of this article, only responses from Pennsylvania teachers were examined for the descriptive statistics, and the full national sample was analyzed for the correlation and logistic regression tests.
