Help us create a database of
systems thinking questions
Have you created questions for your classes to assess their systems thinking conceptual abilities? What do you use to see if you are getting relevant ST concepts across to your students?
We would like to invite you all to join us in helping create a database for systems thinking assessment questions. The System Dynamics Society Precollege Special Interest Group is gathering systems thinking assessment questions from those who have constructed these questions for their own work. We expect the questions could be used by K-12 teachers and instructors of undergraduate courses. They also would provide an excellent resource for researchers.
This effort began when Jon Darkow, a biology teacher from Ohio, posted a question on the CLE listserv asking whether anyone had ST questions that teachers could use to assess systems thinking concepts in their classes. Chris Browne, professor from Australia, responded that he was also interested in these types of assessment questions. So the SDS Precollege SIG is moving this effort forward by asking their members and others to submit one or more questions to the Google form below.
We encourage you to read it before you submit your question(s). A sample of the questions on the Google form and one example of a submission question is available for you.
Those who submit a question will be able to get a copy of all the questions submitted at regular intervals before the questions are eventually made available through The Creative Learning Exchange.
Thank you in advance!
