An Electronic Response System and Conceptests in General Chemistry Courses
Donovan, William
Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, v27 n4 p369-389 Oct 2008
This paper reports the findings of a study of student attitudes and student improvement in conceptual understanding using conceptests with an electronic response system in lecture courses. Students and instructors valued the feedback and interaction that the response system afforded. For a majority of the chemistry topics studied, student understanding improved between the conceptest and corresponding paired exam question, suggesting that the student statements that the conceptests helped improve understanding of the chemistry concepts have validity. (Contains 9 tables.)
