Preservice teachers enrolled in a modified introductory chemistry course used an instructional rubric to improve and evaluate their understanding of students’ misconceptions in learning various chemistry concepts.

These preservice teachers then used a rubric to write a research paper about their chosen misconception and how to address it in the classroom.
