Abstract

This session engages participants in considering the multiple benefits of self-assessment and identifying mechanisms to capture transformative learning that moves student participants towards recognizing themselves as researchers and scientists. Session participants will be invited to brainstorm formative, summative and potential impact uses of self-assessment instruments and have the opportunity to review first-year findings exhibiting growth in key areas assessed. They may choose to work in small groups to represent the multi-modal research design of this NSF-Funded undergraduate research initiative or may choose to work with narrative reflections to identify themes and transformational moments. From these experiences, participants will help generate additional ideas and mechanisms for exploring and capturing student's learning transformations.
