This website is dedicated to the Action Research  that I conducted for my MA in Learning Technologies with Pepperdine University Graduate School of Education and Psychology

“I can do chemistry!”: A move towards alternative assessment in high school chemistry

by Joanne Couling

An Action Research Project

Questions that lead to research:

‘How can I remove the temptation of my students to copy homework assignments?’

‘How can I encourage my students to work collaboratively in a way that benefits the learning of all of them?’

‘How can I change my student’s focus from ‘what is my grade in the class?’ to ‘I can do Chemistry!’
