An Inventory for Alternate Conceptions among First-Semester General Chemistry Students.
Mulford, Douglas R.; Robinson, William R.
Journal of Chemical Education, v79 n6 p739-44 Jun 2002
Presents the Chemical Concepts Inventory (CCI), an inventory that faculty can use to judge the extent of several common alternate conceptions among their students. Demonstrates that students come to general chemistry with a variety of the alternate conceptions described in the research literature. Shows that a traditional general chemistry course results in only modest improvements in understanding of basic concepts. (Author/MM)
