Table 4 Exploratory factor analysis of pre-survey and post-survey items

From: Creating inclusive classrooms by engaging STEM faculty in culturally responsive teaching workshops

Prompt for each pre- and post-survey item (variables):
Please rate your level of knowledge for each of the following topics. Likert scale: 1, not at all knowledgeable (i.e., I am unfamiliar with the topic); 2, somewhat knowledgeable (i.e., I have heard of the topic but could not readily explain it to someone else); 3, knowledgeable (i.e., I have heard of the topic and could readily explain what it means to someone else); and 4, highly knowledgeable (i.e., I understand the current research on the topic and use it to inform the way I teach)
