Abstract Title: Development of questions for the Fluids Conceptual Evaluation (FCE)
Abstract Type: Contributed Poster Presentation
Abstract: This work is part of a multi-institution collaboration developing a fair, valid, and reliable research-based conceptual fluids assessment, the Fluids Conceptual Evaluation (FCE).  The FCE will utilize two-tier multiple-choice items covering both fluids statics and fluids dynamics.  Rasch analysis will be used to create different equivalent versions of the FCE, allowing instructors to give just the statics questions, just the dynamics questions, or a combination of both.  In this poster we will describe the development of student-based distractors for the FCE.  IPLS instructors interested in serving as a pilot test site should contact Project Lead Dawn Meredith.
