N1 - Funding Information: Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) programs are designed to provide research-intensive summer experiences for undergraduate students, particularly those from less research-focused institutions. The REU program, funded through the National Science Foundation, is viewed as a mechanism for increasing graduate school attendance in STEM fields. Research investigating the outcomes of the program has been promising (Landis, 2005; Youssef et al., 2016), with potential benefits including increased interest in research, bolstered determination in pursuing post-secondary degrees, and improved research skills. However, much of this research has been limited to descriptive analyses utilizing self-report data collection methods, such as the Undergraduate Research Student Self-Assessment (URSSA) survey which asks about students’ self-perceived gains from participating in REU programs (Alexander, Foertsch, & Daffinrud, 1998; Chaplin, Manske, & Cruise, 1998; Foertsch, Alexander, & Penberthy, 1997; Follmer, Zappe, Gomez, & Kumar, 2015; Kitto, 1998). While these studies are helpful for understanding the impact of REU programs, criticisms of self-report methodology abound. Self-report instruments rely on participants’ accounts of their beliefs or perceptions about themselves, which are subject to memory and response biases (Cleary, 2011; Perry & Winne, 2006). Because of these limitations, other direct methods of measuring the impact of REU programs are needed.
