|Abstract Title:||Protocol for Analysis of Content Questions|
|Abstract:||As a part of a study of the science preparation of elementary school teachers, we are investigating students' abilities to apply scientific concepts to unfamiliar situations. The objective is to construct a method which will enable us to compare how students use their reasoning and their content knowledge across different disciplines. To analyze students' answers we developed a rubric based on the hierarchies of knowledge and cognitive processes cited in a two dimensional revision of Bloom's taxonomy (1). In this poster we will present the structure of some content questions and the rubric. In addition we will demonstrate the method of analysis for few example questions.
