What are they thinking and why? A framework for assessing and interpreting students' ability to use scientific principles.

John Merrill, Joyce Parker, and Mark Urban-Lurain, from the Division of Science and Mathematics Education (DSME), at Michigan State University will share their research and experience in reforming undergraduate science teaching. Many undergraduates have persistent misconceptions about particular ideas in biology and there are a number of assessment instruments available to identify these students. But how is a list of common misconceptions useful to an instructor? John, Joyce and Mark will present and give the audience opportunities to work with frameworks that structure assessment and interpretation of students' responses in ways that can guide instruction and learning. {Will appear in FYI on Oct 24, 2011
