Long Term Projects
The Student Success Project
Beginning the all of 2004, the LRI began the Student Success Project. The project is a longitudinal examination of factors related to success and retention of students at California State University, San Bernardino. Currently we are following two cohorts of students from Fall 2004 and Fall 2005.
Creativity Across Domains
For the last several years, the LRI has been collecting and analyzing data regarding individual creativity across a wide variety of fields. The project aims to identify and define potential underlying dimensions of individual creativity and to seek linkages in creativity across different domains.
The Kaufman-Agars Motivation Scale
Researchers James Kaufman and Mark Agars have been working to develop a scenario-based measure of intrinsic and extrinsic motivation orientation. Thus far multiple projects using the instrument have been conducting leading to more than 1500 participants included in the scale development and validation project.
New Projects in 2008-2009
