"Scratch and Win" Tickets and Team-based Clickers in Introductory Physics
A presentation from the 2013 Summer Meeting: Portland, Oregon
This poster will document an attempt to hybridize the non-physics specific technique of Team-based Learning with the physics-native methods of Peer Instruction and Cooperative Group Problem Solving. Team-based Learning begins each unit with a "Readiness Assessment Test" (RAT) that acts not only as a reading quiz but also to assess if students are ready to begin problem solving. The RATs are taken first as individuals, then again in teams. The team test is administered with a "scratch-and-win" ticket known as an Immediate Feedback Assessment Technique (IF-AT) form. In the hybrid approach, students work in those same teams for clicker question discussion and for Cooperative Group Problem Solving. We discuss the advantages and disadvantages of this approach and present pre-/post-test Force and Motion Conceptual Evaluation (FMCE) data for classes taught in consecutive years in a liberal arts setting, one with the addition of Team-based Learning, one without.
