S59: Importance of the Affective Domain in Research and Teaching

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Assessing student affect has become an important aspect of chemistry education research over the past few decades, with Likert becoming a household name for most affect inventories.  Students’ attitudes, interests and values have been known to dictate their academic paths in fairly profound ways; finding effective methods to measure affective outcomes is a crucial component of research, now more than ever. This symposium will include presentations on current inventories/instruments that measure affective outcomes, how these data have impacted cognitive achievements, teaching practices and student retention and what the future holds for research in this domain.
