Researchers in the Luxford Lab use both qualitative and quantitative methodologies to explore learning in undergraduate chemistry courses through quasi-experimental designs and phenomenological methods to explore student understanding and effective use of formative and summative assessments. Some of the common data collection methods our research group utilizes are: surveys, interviews, focus groups, and eye tracking.
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
