Potvin, Patrice; Skelling-Desmeules, Yannick; Sy, Ousmane – Online Submission, 2015
This article describes the design of a misconception diagnostic test about fire-related phenomena. It proposes a new test format in which a certainty-measuring tier has been integrated into each of the true/false response choices. This format is argued to be easier for teachers to use than the increasingly popular three-tier format. First, we…
