Abstract

The objective of this study is to explore how outside exposure to chemistry content can influence academic performance in a general chemistry class. This project involves formative assessment, in which students can develop their academic competency throughout the course. Through this modality, the impact of providing supplemental questions can be compared to students’ course progress by tracking the accuracy and response rate of their answers. Analysis regarding the number of questions attempted and number of correctly answered questions will be compared to the range of scores received on exams throughout the course.
