Research and Teaching: Aligning Assessment to Instruction: Collaborative Group Testing in Large-Enrollment Science Classes
By: Marcelle Siegel, Tina M. Roberts, Sharyn K. Freyermuth, Stephen B. Witzig, and Kemal Izci
Grade Level: College
The authors describe a collaborative group-testing strategy implemented and studied in undergraduate science classes. This project investigated how the assessment strategy relates to student performance and perceptions about collaboration and focused on two sections of an undergraduate biotechnology course taught in separate semesters.

Case Study: A Step-by-Step Guide to Students Writing Case Studies (and Tools for Novice Case Authors)
By: Annie Prud'homme-Genereux
Grade Level: College
In experimenting with ways of structuring the assignment and providing guidance to students, the author developed a series of tools that may be of interest to instructors wishing to implement a case-writing assignment in their course. This assignment is more suited for instructors experienced in case writing, as their knowledge of how to design a case will help them advise their students. However, the tools described in this article may also be helpful...  [view full summary]

Targeted Courses in Inquiry Science for Future Elementary School Teachers
By: Richard Steinberg, Yael Wyner, Greg Borman, and Issa I. Salame
Grade Level: College
This study reports on targeted science courses for undergraduate childhood education majors. We describe an inquiry-oriented, threecourse sequence spanning physical, life, and environmental science. All three courses are hands-on and are designed to reflect the content and pedagogy most important to future elementary school teachers.

Research and Teaching: A New Tool for Measuring Student Behavioral Engagement in Large University Classes
By: Erin S. Lane and Sara E. Harris
Grade Level: College
The authors developed a classroom observation protocol for quantitatively measuring student engagement in large university classes. The Behavioral Engagement Related to instruction (BERI) protocol can be used to provide timely feedback to instructors as to how they can improve student engagement in their classrooms.

Two-Year Community: The Use of Journaling to Assess Student Learning and Acceptance of Evolutionary Science
By: Lawrence C. Scharmann and Wilbert Butler Jr.
Grade Level: College
Journal writing was introduced as a means to assess student learning and acceptance of evolutionary science in a nonmajors’ biology course taught at a community college. Fourteen weeks of instruction were performed, each initiated by student-centered, in-class activities and culminated by a discussion, to elucidate tentative conclusions based on evidence from in-class activities.

Research and Teaching: Methods for Creating and Evaluating 3D Tactile Images to Teach STEM Courses to the Visually Impaired
By: Eric Hasper, Rogier Windhorst, Terri Hedgpeth, Leanne Van Tuyl, Ashleigh Gonzales, Britta Martinez, Hongyu Yu, Zoltan Farkas, and Debra P. Baluch
Grade Level: College
Project 3D IMAGINE or 3D Image Arrays to Graphically Implement New Education is a pilot study that researches the effectiveness of incorporating 3D tactile images, which are critical for learning science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, into entry-level lab courses. The focus of this project is to increase the participation and performance of blind or visually impaired (BVI) students by providing a multimodal tactile approach to learning...  [view full summary]
Project 3D IMAGINE or 3D Image Arrays to Graphically Implement New Education is a pilot study that researches the effectiveness of incorporating 3D tactile images, which are critical for learning science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, into entry-level lab courses. The focus of this project is to increase the participation and performance of blind or visually impaired (BVI) students by providing a multimodal tactile approach to learning image-rich material. This study explored the use of various tactile image formats and activity sets to evaluate their ability to assist students in lab exercise.

Are "New Building" Learning Gains Sustainable?
By: Mary M. Walczak and David G. L. Van Wylen
Grade Level: College
New science facilities have become a reality on many college campuses in the last few decades. Large time investments in creating shared programmatic vision and designing flexible spaces, partnered with large fiscal investments, have created a new generation of science building. Unfortunately, few studies provide evidence about whether the articulated goals were achieved. In this study, we revisit assessment of our science facilities after 5 years...  [view full summary]
New science facilities have become a reality on many college campuses in the last few decades. Large time investments in creating shared programmatic vision and designing flexible spaces, partnered with large fiscal investments, have created a new generation of science building. Unfortunately, few studies provide evidence about whether the articulated goals were achieved. In this study, we revisit assessment of our science facilities after 5 years of occupancy, looking specifically for sustained gains in (a) student perceptions of interdisciplinarity, (b) the ability to stay focused despite high levels of visual connectedness, and (c) overall appreciation for the learning environment.

Two-Year Community: Implementing Vision and Change in a Community College Classroom
By: Steven Lysne and Brant Miller
Grade Level: College
The purpose of this article is to describe a model for teaching introductory biology coursework within the Vision and Change framework (American Association for the Advancement of Science, 2011). The intent of the new model is to transform instruction by adopting an active, student-centered, and inquiry-based pedagogy consistent with Vision and Change recommendations.
