Proposal Title

Analysis of Chemistry Attitudes and Experiences Questionnaire (CAEQ) and Research Experience Survey at a New Four Year Institution. Phase Two

Proposal Abstract

Georgia Gwinnett College (GGC) is the first public four year college established in the U.S. in the 21 st century. The chemistry faculty developed a general chemistry curriculum that fosters active learning environments, innovative use of educational technology and an integrated research experience. Phase Two reports the second year analysis of Chemistry Attitudes and Experiences Questionnaire and research experience perspectives of first year, first semester Chemistry students (n=32). These results will provide insight on students' perspectives of chemistry, in general, and of an embedded research experience in the general chemistry curriculum. The comparison set for the study will be an evaluation using the survey tool at the end of the Organic Chemistry sequence. Additionally, this approach and these outcomes will serve to inform and to guide our on-going assessment of our new curriculum
