ME Students Needed for Research on Engineering Learning

To Purdue Engineering Students,

We are educational researchers who are working to improve learning and instruction in engineering courses. Specifically, we are studying how to design questions that can reliably diagnose students' understandings and confusion in engineering sciences. We are asking you to help us with our research.

Are you at least 18 years old?
Have you completed (or are currently completing) one or more of the following courses:
•        ME 200, Thermodynamics I
•        ME 300, Thermodynamics II
•        ME 315, Heat & Mass Transfer
•        ME 318, Fluid Mechanics
•        ME 321, Heat Transfer       
•        CHE 211, Thermodynamics
•        CHE 378, Heat & Mass Transfer
•        MSE 260 Thermodynamics
•        MSE 340 Transport Phenomena

If so, you are eligible to participate! If you participate, you may enter to win 1 of 6 $50 gift cards. We estimate approximately 200 students might participate in this research.

The study consists of a 24-question quiz about heat and thermal science. If you would like to take part in this scientific study click on the link below. It should take less than an hour to complete the quiz and your answers will be anonymous. When you finish the quiz, you will be given an option to enter your email for the gift cards.
