JCE Online: CQs and ChPs: CQs: Chemical Concepts Inventory The Chemical Concepts Inventory* (CCI) is a multiple choice instrument that can be used to indicate the level of chemistry misconceptions held by students. The inventory is a multiple choice instrument composed of one- and two-tiered non-mathematical conceptual questions (22 questions total). The questions are based on common commonly-observed student misconceptions about topics generally covered in the first semester of a college chemistry course. The inventory was administered to over 1400 students in a general chemistry course for science and engineering majors (all of whom have had a high school chemistry course) during the first week of a fall semester and repeated during the first week of the following spring semester. The inventory indicates that many of our general chemistry students are not fluent with a significant portion of the concepts in general chemistry. Please feel free to download this inventory and use it with your students.

Irresistible Ideas for play based learning Awesome useful Pages creating a window collage Did you see the pretty window collage on the wonderful Filth Wizardry blog? I was inspired to do something similar with the children at preschool. The first step was to cut and/or tear different colours of tissue paper. We used our clear perspex easel instead of a window. Different kids arrived at different times and added their tissue paper to the easel. I had envisioned (a la filth wizardry) that the easel would be completely covered like this: But the children had other ideas. They carried over other collage materials and added them to the mix: Although it didn't turn into a stained glass window it still succeeded as a communal collage experience - and this week it will turn into a communal washing up experience!
