Using an ACS General Chemistry Exam to Compare Traditional and POGIL Instruction
This study uses a standard ACS exam for general chemistry to examine the effectiveness of Process-Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning (POGIL) instruction compared to traditional instruction. One cohort in this general chemistry study received a full year of POGIL instruction, while the second cohort received one semester of traditional instruction followed by a semester of POGIL instruction. The ACS General Chemistry Full-Year Exam was administered to both cohorts at the end of the second semester and statistical comparisons were made. The data indicated no statistical differences in overall exam performance; however, closer examination of individual questions did yield insights into the learning process.
