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.
