CHEM561-01C Formative Assessment in Chemistry Teaching (with Hannah M Sevian)

This course, designed for middle and high school chemistry teachers with at least three years of experience in teaching chemistry, focuses on designing, adapting, and using formative assessments that elicit students' chemical thinking. Throughout the course, teachers build and analyze assessment portfolios and annotated chemistry formative assessment tools that illustrate how different learners' chemical thinking is elicited, and assessment snapshots that capture formative assessment classroom implementation. Perspectives of responsive teaching and chemical thinking are applied to analyzing formative assessment tools and making sense of learners' responses to formative assessments from various chemistry instructional materials or designed by teachers taking the course.

Remote: Courses that are typically taught face-to-face will be delivered remotely this spring. As opposed to an online course, which requires no live sessions and allows a student to study anytime, a remote course is either: (1) a course with live class sessions delivered via web conferencing, or (2) a course with pre-recorded lectures that a student can watch anytime, typically paired with live discussions sessions. For more detail on the remote format of a specific course, contact the instructor.
