Developing a conceptual assessment for a modular curriculum 

written by Paula V. Engelhardt, Steve Robinson, Edward Price, P. Sean Smith, and Fred Goldberg

This paper presents the development and field-testing of a multiple-choice content assessment designed to measure student learning gains of prospective elementary teachers enrolled in a course using the Next Generation Physical Science and Everyday Thinking curriculum over the course of one term. Preliminary results of the initial pilot in spring 2017 with a small group of experienced instructors and a larger second administration by members of the Next Gen PET-Faculty Online Learning Community in fall 2017 are presented. Practical aspects of developing and evaluating the effectiveness of the assessment instrument for a modular curriculum and administration by a large collaboration are discussed.
