Dr. Kevin Haudek and Dr. Chelsie Romulo presented their progress on the collaborative project to develop a Next Generation Concept Inventory for interdisciplinary environmental programs, funded by the National Science Foundation. As part of the project, the team is developing a set of constructed response assessment items centered on the Food-Energy-Water nexus that can be automatically scored using the Constructed Response Classifier developed by the AACR research group.
At the AAAS-IUSE Summit, Dr. Haudek presented a poster describing the project progress to date, including the assessment development process. Dr. Romulo led a workshop about how to create concept-inventory like questions to elicit student thinking as part of formative assessment.
