Abstract Title: Evaluating How Students View Questioning in the Physics Class
Abstract: CSU is looking to partner with other institutions to assess how students at diverse institutions view the use of questioning in the classroom.  

Specifically, we would like other institutions to administer a survey we have developed in which students comment on instructional episodes.  We would like partners at:
(1) institutions similar to our own (minority serving, comprehensive) and
(2) research universities with more traditional populations.
