Effects on assessment caused by splits between belief and understanding 

written by Timothy L. McCaskey, Melissa H. Dancy, and Andrew Elby

We performed a new kind of FCI study to get at the differences between what students believe and what they think scientists believe. Students took the FCI in the standard way, and then made a second pass indicating "the answer they really believe" and "the answer they think a scientist would give." Students split on a large number of the questions, with women splitting more often than men.
