Abstract

Longitudinal and cross-sectional data is being collected at a Historically Black College (HBCU) to understand the cognitive development of students in their tolerance of ambiguity that may translate into their ability to solve open-ended problems. The data is expected to provide insight into the correlations between academic success, tolerance of ambiguity, intellectual development and development of a science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) identity in undergraduate students. This work-in-progress paper provides preliminary data on tolerance of ambiguity in college students. Some results from the analysis of the data are included.
