Collaborative Make Up Exams and Course Based Research Experiences in General Biology I: Innovative Practices in Lecture and Laboratory Components

Collaborative Make Up Exams and Course Based Research Experiences in General Biology I overlapped for three semesters.  The lecture and laboratory sections were taught by adjunct faculty, post docs as well as a full professor in the department. Students in all labs completed a modified version of David Lopatto’s Classroom Undergraduate Research Experience (CURE) survey to indicate self perceived learning gains.  Students who participated in the collaborative make up exams also completed a collaborative make-up exam questionnaire that provided valuable data and reflective feedback.  In this presentation, we will compare overall grade performance from students who had Collaborative make up exams only; Collaborative make up exams + Course based Research Experiences; and Course based Research Experiences only.
