Meghan Lower

Meghan Lower’s poster, Argument Driven Inquiry: A Chemistry Laboratory Implementation, was judged best in the education category at the Research and Creativity Achievement Week. Her poster presented data from a study focused on evaluation of student ability to engage in productive scientific argumentation, a key practice in all science disciplines. Students participating in the study were video recorded during the argumentation sessions. Videos were scored according to the Assessment of Scientific Argumentation in the Classroom (ASAC) scoring rubric, consisting of three subcategories of cognitive, epistemic and social aspects. Comparison of ASAC scores at the beginning and end of the semesters showed a significant positive improvement in argumentation. Congratulations to Meghan!

Meghan is a student in the Honors college pursing a double major in Chemistry and Science Education.
