Using the RTOP to Gauge Implementation of IPTIR Program Goals
  Location: KFC Courts
  Date: Monday, Aug.1
  Time: 8:45 PM -9:30 PM
  Author: Jeremy Hulshizer, University of Northern Iowa
  Co-Author(s): Lawrence T. Escalada , Jeffrey T Morgan
  Abstract: The Iowa Physics Teacher Instruction and Resources (IPTIR) program at the University of Northern Iowa trains physics teachers in research-based inquiry strategies; many out-of-field teachers also use the program to gain certification to teach physics. As part of their program activities, participants submit two video lessons each academic year, which the staff use to evaluate the degree to which participants are employing methods emphasized by the program. The Reformed Teaching Observation Protocol (1) is used to rate each submission. We discuss trends observed in examining the RTOP scores of program participants, as well as correlations between RTOP scores and student performance on various standardized conceptual assessments and other measures. 1. 1.
