Guide for Instructors/Users
Thank you for your interest in using the Biological Experimental Design Concept Inventory (BEDCI). For ease of use, we have put together the following package that comprises all the documents/PowerPoints you will need to run this inventory in your class/classes.
Please note that you should download the four separate files listed below the ‘Required Files’ heading; you will need these to deploy the BEDCI in your class(es).
We have also included a fifth, sixth and seventh file (the Excel template file, the Excel template guide, and the Table of Explanations listed below the ‘Optional File’ heading); these latter files may prove useful in analyzing the resultant data and in interpreting the results.
If you are interested in collaborating with our researchers, we would be very grateful if you record and send any data to us by following the style of the Excel template file. To this end, we highly encourage the use of the template file included below.
