Abstract Title: Comparing assessment data between learning and teaching assistant supported studios
Abstract: LAs are becoming more common in university physics courses in efforts to improve student learning. Kansas State University introductory physics for engineering majors courses have both a lecture and studio component. Each studio is run by a primary (faculty, instructor, or advanced grad student) and a secondary (a graduate or advanced undergraduate TA, or LAs). This allows us to make a relatively clean comparison of the effects of having TAs or LAs in the studios. We studied the differences in conceptual understanding and attitudes toward physics between students who were in either TA or LA supported studios. At the beginning and end of the engineering physics I course, students took the FCI and the CLASS. For engineering physics II, students took the BEMA and CLASS. This poster focuses on the effects that TAs and LAs have on inventory and attitude assessment results.
