(134e) Conceptests for Process Controls Courses: By Students, for Students
As an assignment in a Process Control course at Northeastern University, students were given the opportunity to write ConcepTest questions of their own for use with future iterations of students. Students had to develop multiple choice questions with detailed solutions, and were allowed to develop the ConcepTests with respect to any concepts in the course. More than 40 students over two semesters developed questions that were then used throughout the following semester. This study discusses the range of questions created, the benefit of having students develop their own questions, and their benefit in future semesters.
