Investigating the Relationship between Active Learning Task Characteristics and Student Success
written by Leanne Doughty, Laurel Hartley, Paul Le, Mary Nyaema, Jeff Boyer, and Robert M. Talbot III
There is strong evidence that the implementation of active learning in undergraduate science courses can lead to increased student conceptual understanding and course achievement, but we still do not know what specific characteristics of active learning contribute the most to student success. Our work examines the tasks that students are asked to engage with during active learning, with the goal of investigating the relationship between different task characteristics and student level outcomes. To this end, we are working to characterize the active learning tasks that students engage with in the classroom with respect to authenticity and cognitive depth. This paper presents our characterization of the tasks we have collected from four introductory physics courses at three institutions and discusses the relationship between these characteristics and student gains on the Force and Motion Conceptual Evaluation instrument.
