written by David E. Meltzer
How can an instructor assess students' thinking during class and modify in-class learning activities accordingly? Finding ways to address this question is the objective of our project. Our goal is to develop and test materials that provide a basis for in-class instructional activities, and which also assist the instructor in monitoring student thinking on a moment-to-moment basis. The materials we have developed consist of carefully sequenced sets of multiplechoice items that emphasize qualitative, conceptual questions. They are designed to maximize student-instructor interaction and allow rapid assessment of student learning in a large-class environment. This assessment then aids instructors in structuring and guiding their presentations and class activities.
