Assessment feedback: A tool to promote scientific practices in upper-division
written by Amali Priyanka Jambuge, Katherine D. Rainey, Bethany R. Wilcox, and James T. Laverty
Students' scores on assessments play a vital role in course modifications, though their effectiveness relies on the quality of the interpretation of these scores. We adapt the notion of assessments as a change agent so that a well-developed rubric accompanied by intentionally designed instructor feedback can act as a tool to inform course improvement. In conjunction with work developing a standardized upper-division thermal physics assessment, this pilot work articulates a methodology to determine feedback for instructors to inform how well their courses support students in meeting learning goals. In this paper, we present an example using a task targeting the scientific practice of "using mathematics" to explicate this methodology. This work highlights the importance of assessment feedback to inform explicit course modifications in physics.
