Abstract Title: Truly Representative Samples for Conceptual Evaluation Instrument (CFI) Development
Abstract: While developing the methodology to create the Fluid Motions Conceptual Evaluation Instrument (FMCIE) for use with the introductory physics for life science (IPLS) courses, we realized that to produce a reliable, valid, and fair conceptual evaluation instrument, we needed a truly representative sample of students from IPLS courses throughout the country at both private and state schools. We needed a sample that represented the variety of different students taking such a course, as well as where they took the course. In this poster, we will outline the methods utilized to create this representative sample to ensure representation of the different populations who take IPLS across the country.
