West Virginia University recently began a learning assistants (LA) program in its introductory calculus-based physics course targeted at increasing course effectiveness and recruiting future STEM teachers. The LA program was modeled after the Colorado Learning Assistant model. This paper describes the setting and initial results from the implementation including changes in learning gains (measured with the Force and Motion Conceptual Evaluation) and attitudes (measured with the Colorado Learning Attitudes about Science Survey). These data are combined with demographic data about the individual students and compared to baseline data collected prior to the implementation of the LA program.
