Abstract Title: Evaluating Gender and Racial Gaps on the Force Concept Inventory at A Minority Serving PUI (primary undergraduate institution)
Abstract: Gender gaps on the various physics concept inventories have been extensively studied; however, little work has been done to explore racial or ethnic biases. As part of an effort to explore gender and racial gaps for a variety of student population, we collected a year-long data in introductory physics courses at Cal Poly Pomona (a Hispanic serving PUI) to investigate students' performance on the Force Concept Inventory. In this poster, we present students' performance on the FCI pre and post scores by gender and ethnicity, as well as differences in FCI gains.
