Equitable Assessment Design
Overall, these studies examine equitable assessment design practices in undergraduate introductory chemistry courses, particularly for students with inequitable access to mathematics.
The studies look at:
topics that pose challenges for students with low math aptitude,
reasons for differential performance of these students,
the impact of using different representations in assessments,
emphasizing chemistry concepts versus mathematical skills in assessments,
the role of stoichiometry as a foundation of introductory courses, and
how assessing mechanistic reasoning could support more equitable achievement.
