Conference Proceedings Detail Page

written by Thomas M. Foster and Daniel Barnett
In support of an NSF-CCLI program, we developed a multiple-choice efficacy assessment for the energy concept. What makes this work novel amongst the sea of energy concept assessments is the intended audience: elementary and early childhood education majors. While these are smart and capable college students, their demographics require a different assessment than our engineering students. We will discuss the development of the assessment and our preliminary results.
