Assessment

We are grateful for the undergraduate educators who have incorporated models in their classrooms and provided us with feedback on the impact of the models on student learning. This information has guided our development of new materials. A few of the best assessment results and/or tools are listed below.

Harris, Michelle A., Peck, Ronald F., Colton, Shanon, Morris, Jennifer, Neto, Elias Chaibub and Kallio, Julie. 2009. A Combination of Hand-held Models and Computer Imaging Programs Helps Students Answer Oral Questions about Molecular Structure and Function: A Controlled Investigation of Student Learning. CBE—Life Sciences Education 8:29-43.

Mike Gleason (Georgia College and State University) has utilized the Student Assessment of Learning Gains (SALG) instrument to measure student perception of the impact of models on their learning.
