ConcepTest Examples

David Steer and David McConnell at the University of Akron are creating and reviewing ConcepTests for introductory geoscience courses. If anyone would like to test existing questions or submit additional questions, please contact them.

This collection was created with funding from the National Science Foundation, (DUE-0087894).

Introductory geoscience students may attempt to deal with the material by trying to simply memorize it. McConnell et al. (2003) suggest that geoscience ConcepTests should be additionally restricted to the level of comprehension or application in Bloom's taxonomy.
