Our research group uses qualitative and quantitative methodologies to explore learning in undergraduate general chemistry courses and high school chemistry classrooms. Some of the common methods we use are: surveys, interviews, focus groups, and eye tracking. The overarching focus of our research is on student understanding and assessment.
We are particularly focused on:
- Assessing conceptual knowledge and utilization of representations
- Impact of curricular choices and student study habits on student understanding
- Impact of testing feedback on student success
