Abstract: As one focus of our new Ph.D. Program in Math and Science Education, we are undertaking department-side studies of the longer-term effectiveness of different learning aids in General Chemistry I (two ways of using Clickers and two types of On-Line Homework Programs). Longer-term learning is being assessed by administering the full-year ACS General Chemistry Exam GC-05 to all General Chemistry II students at MTSU. The questions on this exam have been divided into Chem. I and Chem. II subsets, and the scores on the Chem. I subset have been divided by the type of learning aid used during Chem. I: clickers, online homework, or lectures only. The scores on the Chem. II subset serve as controls to help assure equal ability of the subsets of students, as does information on the SAT scores of the subsets of students. Results from the first two years of clicker use (as measured the following year) will be presented. This work has assumed enhanced importance since the Tennessee Legislature has just changed the basis for funding universities from students enrolled to students graduating; we need to find ways to improve success rates without reducing standards.
