The Exams Institute is also involved in a variety of collaborative projects related to assessment. One collaboration is to design a quick and easy to use instrument for assessing the effect of informal chemistry projects, like National Chemistry Week. We are working with Prof. Chris Bauer of the University of New Hampshire on this project. A new instrument designed for use with children has been built and piloted. We may have enough data to make this available for NCW activities in the Fall of 2012.
The Exams Institute Director also serves as a project evaluator on NSF projects, particularly ones related to assessment.
