We are interested in how students learn concepts in biology. Constructed response questions (written assessments) provide insight into student thinking.
Our research questions include:
What can written assessments tell us about student understanding of matter and energy transfer?
Can lexical analysis identify patterns in student thinking about biology concepts?
How do students understand core concepts in anatomy and physiology?
How can active learning be utilized to facilitate student learning of matter and energy?
