Should students change their answers on multiple choice questions? (article from Advances in Physiology Education) AandP.info/students-88c2c4
The Master of Science in Human Anatomy & Physiology Instruction—the MS-HAPI—is a graduate program for A&P teachers, especially for those who already have a graduate/professional degree. A combination of science courses (enough to qualify you to teach at the college level) and courses in contemporary instructional practice, this program helps you be your best in both on-campus and remote teaching. Kevin Patton is a faculty member in this program at Northeast College of Health Sciences. Check it out!
Krista and Kevin chat about the research paper and their own experiences as both students and faculty regarding test-taking skills.
