Green, William J.; Elliott, Curtis; Cummins, R. Hays – Journal of Chemical Education, 2004
The importance of introducing various projects or activities as a motivation towards inquiry-based learning, also satisfies the need for first year chemistry students to transfer scientific theory into practice. This approach, combined with the traditionally written laboratory methods, develops creative skills, and the spirit of exploration…

Denyer, Gareth; Hancock, Dale – Journal of Chemical Education, 2002
Describes an easily implemented method that allows the generation and analysis of graded multiple-choice examinations. The technique, which uses standard functions in user-end software (Microsoft Excel 5+), can also produce several different versions of an examination that can be employed to prevent plagiarism. (MM)
