S13: Research in Chemistry Education

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

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: Brent Ferrell, University of Northern Colorado

The field of psychometrics dates back more than a century and is concerned with the theory and practice of psychological and educational measurement. Researchers in this field have established protocols to develop and evaluate a wide variety of assessment instruments, including multiple-choice concept inventories. With these protocols, chemists can make measurements of student knowledge and understanding with the same care and precision they... Read More →
