Abstract Title: Utilizing Perusall Collaborative Reading to Facilitate Learning in Introductory Physics
Abstract Type: Contributed Poster Presentation
Abstract: Few students read before coming to class. This work examines the use of Perusall at a public urban non-ivy university. Perusall is a collaborative reading of the textbook where students write comments, ask questions, and reply to their classmates. Students are graded on their engagement with the text rather than their comprehension and the comments can be used for JiTT. This study covers six sections of calculus-based introductory physics led by four faculty members. Initial data analysis shows that the students are more likely to read with Perusall than with no enforcement or with traditional reading questions. Initial pre/post MPEX results show an improvement in students' attitudes towards reading. The poster will also include an assessment on conceptual learning gains as measured by the FCI and CSEM.
