Ed rigorously researches formative assessment tools to reveal naïve reasoning, and he shared these tools with participants. A PDF of his PowerPoint can be viewed here.

Participants discussed research and experiences about misconceptions related to heliophysics and planetary science. Dr. Janelle Bailey expanded the conversation related to the heliophysics community by sharing her research on misconceptions and naïve reasoning about stars – including our own. Georgia Bracey shared her work investigating students’ conceptions related to planetary geology. Participants considered the best strategies to combat misconceptions about topics that lack research.
