Conference Proceedings Detail Page

written by N. Sanjay Rebello
What are the goals of non-science students taking a lecture-based physical science course? Do students' goals and expectations change as they progress through the class? We surveyed students on the first day of class about their goals as well as what they, their instructor and their classmates could do to help them achieve these goals. The same questions were asked at the end of the semester. A comparison of students' pre- vs. post-course responses reveals that students change what they believe to be key to meeting their goals for the class. After the class they are more likely to believe that they and their peers rather than the instructor have a larger role in achieving their goals.
