Abstract Title: What does it take to change reasoning ability?
Abstract: Data from several years and several different classes have shown that Lawson test scores do not change much over the course of a single semester, and are strongly correlated with FCI gains. So what does change Lawson scores? We have new data that we think shows that more interaction with materials that demand reasoning (and not just clicker questions and end of chapter Homework problems) improves reasoning ability and subsequently conceptual development.
