Associate professor Min Kyu Kim received a three-year $298,375 grant from the National Science Foundation entitled, “IUSE-Engaged Student Learning (Level 1): AI-Scaffolded Pre-Classroom Learning for Large/Introductory Undergraduate Physics Courses.”
He will work on the grant with co-principal investigator M. Shameer Abdeen, lecturer in Georgia State’s Department of Physics and Astronomy.
The grant project will design and implement an artificial intelligence (AI)-augmented formative assessment and feedback system. This system will help students develop skills to succeed in in-classroom interactive problem-solving activities.
“The findings will determine whether AI in education improves students’ well-being inside and outside of classrooms, with a focus on students traditionally underrepresented in STEM education,” Kim and Abdeen wrote. “Extensive data collected in the final phase will uncover the relationships among pre-classroom activities, in-classroom performance, self-efficacy, interest in physics and student backgrounds, including gender, race, ethnicity, first-generation status and English language learning.”
