Abstract Title: Developing an Energy Assessment for Elementary Education Majors
Abstract: In support of an NSF-CCLI program, we developed a multiple-choice efficacy assessment for the energy concept.  What makes this work novel amongst the sea of energy concept assessments is the intended audience:  elementary and early childhood education majors.  While these are smart and capable college students, their demographics require a different assessment than our engineering students.  We will discuss the development of the assessment and our preliminary results.
