An Expanded Framework for Analyzing General Chemistry Exams
Smith, K. Christopher; Nakhleh, Mary B.; Bretz, Stacey Lowery
Chemistry Education Research and Practice, v11 n3 p147-153 2010
This paper describes an expanded framework to aid chemical educators in constructing exams for their courses. The framework has three primary levels: definition, algorithmic, and conceptual. These primary levels have often been used in chemical education research to analyze and describe exam questions, but in this study the definition, algorithmic, and conceptual primary levels have expanded secondary levels. (Contains 3 tables and 3 figures.)
