Abstract

This paper reports the findings of a study of student attitudes and student improvement in conceptual understanding using conceptests with an electronic response system in lecture courses. Students and instructors valued the feedback and interaction that the response system afforded. For a majority of the chemistry topics studied, student understanding improved between the conceptest and corresponding paired exam question, suggesting that the student statements that the conceptests helped improve understanding of the chemistry concepts have validity.
