Targeted Poster Session: TP-A

Issues and Innovations in Concept Inventory Development and Administration

Organizer:
Rebecca Lindell (rlindel@siue.edu) Southern Illinois University Edwardsville

When/Where

Thursday, July 27   8:15 9:45  in Regency C

Thursday, July 27   1:45 3:15 in Waverly

Theme:  Since the creation of the Force Concept Inventory (FCI) the development of research-based distracter driven multiple-choice instruments has surged. Now nearly every scientific discipline now has multiple concept inventories available for their use. A quick literature search yielded concept inventories in Physics, Astronomy, Engineering, Biology, Chemistry, Geoscience, Mathematics and Statistics. While many innovations in the development of these different concept inventories have been made, many issues related to development, validity, reliability and conclusions that can be drawn from these instruments have been raised. This targeted poster session will bring together different discipline-based education researchers to discuss the different issues and innovations in concept inventory development and administration.

Goals:  The goal of this session is to communicate many of the issues and innovations that have been made in concept inventory development and administration. Our hope is that after attending this targeted poster session, many of the attendees will be more aware of these issues and innovations.
