Using test answers to gauge student understanding of important concepts in undergraduate STEM courses can be misleading. How do you know your students really "got" what you were teaching? How can the format of your test questions reveal misunderstandings and teach you what the students know?

Dr. Brian Couch, Assistant Professor, Biological Sciences, University Nebraska-Lincoln, will share a series of within-subjects controlled experiments showing how student responses differ in multiple-choice, multiple-true-false, or free-response formats and how to implement this research in your classroom. Refreshments will be provided by CBiRC.

*Registration is not required.*
