Pre-Assessment: Gauging Students Preparedness for Sedimentary Geology
The site, Professional Development for Geoscience Faculty, continues to receive high marks and a great deal of praise, and this resource follows in that established tradition. Created by Lawrence D. Lemke of Wayne State University, this exercise helps educators assess the current state of studentsï¿½ï¿½_ï¿½__ educational background as it applies to sedimentary geology. As Lemke notes in the introduction, he uses this pre-assessment quiz as a way to gauge their knowledge, and it has been quite successful in the classroom. Visitors can read a description of this activity, and they can also download the student survey and a short quiz. For persons working in the field of geology education, this resource will be most useful.
