Abstract Title: Developing and Validating a Closed Response Practice-Based Identity Survey
Abstract: This poster will describe the development of a survey to measure students' physics identity. Using a Communities of Practice lens, we examine laboratory classes with a specific emphasis on students' experiences with physics practices. From a robust understanding of students' ideas about these practices, we can get information about how students situate themselves with respect to the practices as an indicator of their physics identity. We have combined qualitative and statistical analyses to reduce the items and overall dimensions of the survey. The poster will highlight the survey development process with a specific focus on turning open-ended responses into closed-form survey questions that combine practices and identity.
