About ChemVLab+In the ChemVLab+ project, we are developing modules with interactive embedded assessments for two of the most difficult and central topics in introductory chemistry: stoichiometry and chemical thermodynamics. These modules seamlessly integrate with the existing ChemCollective Virtual Lab simulation-based learning environment. The aims of the project are to:
- Create Virtual Lab activities with embedded assessments that are aligned with core high school chemistry content and inquiry standards.
- Create individualized coaching that is responsive to student behaviors and allows each student to progress at his or her own pace.
- Develop a reporting system that enables students to monitor their own progress and allows teachers to quickly see overall patterns in student performance, so that they may tailor their ongoing instruction.
