Concept Inventory Development - New lessons learned with the Flight Physics Concept Inventory (FliP-CoIn) — •Florian Genz1,3, André Bresges2, Kathleen Falconer2, and Lars Möhring2,3 — 1ZuS - Science Labs, University of Cologne / GERMANY — 2Universität zu Köln — 3ComeIN - Communities of Practice NRW
Concept Inventories surged in physics (e.g.: physport.org) and leaked fast into many other educational disciplines. However, Concept Inventories differ widely in the way they are developed and validated. We present particular important methods and techniques for Concept Inventory development as well as critical turning points by the practical example of the Flight Physics Concept Inventory (FliP-CoIn, https://zus.uni-koeln.de/flip-coin.html ).
We shed a practical light on the methodological steps: Literature review and the decision about the underlying test theory, expert opinions, student concepts, think-aloud interviews, focus groups, data collection, data transformation, and analysis.
This will be a humbling talk with focus on avoidable mistakes...inspired by life experience, hence, past mistakes.
