ChemEd X Talks with members of ACCT, Assessing for Change in Chemical Thinking. In order to teach chemistry effectively, we must ascertain what our students are thinking about chemistry and make a decision regarding what to do with what we learn. Formative assessment questions provide a useful lens into students' minds regarding what they are thinking about chemistry. Let us consider then, how categorizing formative assessment questions could help us plan out our classes more deliberately, in order to better design purposeful written formative assessments that align with our curricular goals. Join us! Register for this 30 minute Zoom meeting to be held May 26th at 7pm EST.
