Comparing Recent Organizing Templates for Test Content between ACS Exams in General Chemistry and AP Chemistry
Holme, Thomas
Journal of Chemical Education, v91 n9 p1352-1356 Sep 2014
Two different versions of "big ideas" rooted content maps have recently been published for general chemistry. As embodied in the content outline from the College Board, one of these maps is designed to guide curriculum development and testing for advanced placement (AP) chemistry. The Anchoring Concepts Content Map for general chemistry from the ACS Exams Institute is a component of a larger content map for the four-year undergraduate curriculum. This article compares the structure and content in these two maps to provide perspective on the current nature of the general chemistry curriculum.
