Proposal Title

An Analysis of the Effect of Course Content Delivery Changes on Student Performance on Course Final Exams

Proposal Abstract

A comparison of student Final Exam scores from before and after specific course content was modified to make the theoretical content more congruent with the focus of the final exam (career application). Not "teaching to the test," the changes were specific, but subtle, changes in wording of the summary aspects of theoretical material. Differences in test scores from sections not receiving these changes to those that did will be compared.

NOTE* - this is an on-going project - final data collection and analysis will be completed in December to determine any significant differences between the groups.
