Online administration of a reasoning inventory in development
written by Alexis Olsho, Suzanne White Brahmia, Charlotte Zimmerman, Trevor I. Smith, Philip Eaton, and Andrew Boudreaux
We are developing the Physics Inventory of Quantitative Literacy (PIQL), a new research based assessment (RBA) focused on quantitative reasoning--rather than conceptual understanding--in physics contexts. We rapidly moved administration of the PIQL online in Spring 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We present our experiences with online, unproctored administration of an RBA in development to students enrolled in a large-enrollment, calculus-based, introductory physics course. We describe our attempts to adhere to best practices on a limited time frame, and present a preliminary analysis of the results, comparing results from the online administration to earlier results from in-person, proctored administration. We include discussion of online administration of multiple-choice/multiple-response (MCMR) items, which we use on the instrument as a way to probe multiple facets of student reasoning. Our initial comparison indicates little difference between online and paper administrations of the PIQL, except for performance MCMR items.
