Abstract Title: Evaluation of a multiple goal revision of a physics lab
Abstract: We have undertaken a revision of our University Physics laboratory to address multiple learning outcomes defined by a departmental task force.  These include measurement skills, developing experimental procedures, analyzing data, technical writing, conceptual understanding, dealing with uncertainty, working in teams and having a positive experience.  We have collected data on student learning and experiences through the FMCE, student reports, survey and end of the semester practicum.  The results indicate improvements in some areas, as well as areas for further improvement.
