Abstract Title: Assessing modeling behaviors in the lab
Abstract: The AAPT recently approved a new set of recommended goals for physics labs. This list presents the need for related assessment instruments. We are currently developing an instrument to evaluate goals related to modeling, designing experiments, and analyzing and visualizing data. We will present the assessment itself as well as some preliminary data from interviews with students and responses from a free-response version given to students at the beginning and end of an introductory physics lab course. Through this poster, we hope to get feedback from the BFY community on the content and goals of this assessment.
