Sung, Shannon; Shen, Ji; Stanger-Hall, Kathrin F.; Wiegert, Craig; Li, Wan-l; Brown, Scott; Robertson, Tom
Journal of College Science Teaching, v44 n4 Mar 2015
Despite the increasing interests and practices in interdisciplinary science education, little research has been documented to develop effective assessments targeting students' interdisciplinary learning. In response to this gap, a team of scientists and educators developed an interdisciplinary assessment instrument targeting osmosis, which was chosen because it involves concepts from multiple disciplines and was identified as one of the most important topics by college instructors from different disciplines.
