This symposium provides a forum for chemical education research. A submitted presentation should briefly address (1) the motivation for the research and type of problem investigated and (2) the methodology chosen to both gather and interpret the data collected. The presentation should focus primarily on the findings and the interpretation of the data. This symposium is sponsored by the ACS DivCHED Committee on Chemistry Education Research. 

Presider: Jessica VandenPlas, Grand Valley State University
