Correlation between FCI Gains and Interactive Engagement
  Location: KFC Courts
  Date: Tuesday, Aug.2
  Time: 5:15 PM -6:00 PM

  Abstract: Introductory physics classes at the University of Wisconsin - Platteville moved from a traditional lecture hall environment to studio classrooms in spring 2009. To assess the transition, we have been administering the Force Concept Inventory (FCI) to all sections of calculus-based Physics I beginning in spring 2008. We have also defined an Interactive Engagement Index (IEI) for each section. This index is based on self-reported information on six factors: time spent lecturing; student engagement with concepts, problem solving, and hands-on learning activities; the degree of integration of the lab with the lecture; and large-group discussions. The correlation between FCI gain and IEI for all 20 sections between S08 and F10 is 0.92. This poster will present details on the IEI, update the data to include in spring 2011, and look at the correlation in more depth. This work was supported by NSF-DUE CCLI 0633583.
