Abstract Title: Physics Laboratory Performance Assessment at UNC-CH
Abstract: In our introductory physics laboratories at UNC-Chapel Hill, we have been administering a lab practicum since 2001.  This hands-on lab exam assesses students' ability to make accurate measurements with typical laboratory instruments, analyze and interpret empirical data, evaluate results, analyze measurement errors, and properly communicate findings. Trends in student performance and lessons learned will be shared in this poster.  Sample lab exam questions and answers with explanations are provided for students to help them prepare for their exam; these can be found on our department website: www.physics.unc.edu/labs
