Representational Use on a Lab Question by Modeling Workshop Participants
written by Kathleen A. Harper, Ted M. Clark, Lin Ding, and Matthew A. Kennedy
Like many research-informed science curricula, Modeling Instruction (MI) emphasizes using multiple representations to learn science and solve problems. Also like many reformed curricular approaches, MI evaluations have primarily focused on conceptual gains. This is particularly true when investigating the effect of teacher professional development based upon MI. While such efforts are valuable, there is a need to broaden the assessment of professional development offerings. To address this need, Modeling workshop participants were given "lab questions" from a recent AP physics exam. These responses were scored by a trained AP reader and analyzed qualitatively. The results show that the participants not only scored better than the national average, but that the participants tended to use representations appropriate to the questions posed.
