Conference Proceedings Detail Page

written by Sahana Murthy and Eugenia Etkina
This paper describes our instructional and research efforts to help students in a large-enrollment (450 students) introductory laboratory course develop abilities used by practicing scientists. We focus on the ability to design an experimental investigation. We provide sample tasks, scoring rubrics and evidence of student improvement.
