Description

This session will give an overview of how we have transformed our introductory physics course so that it is self-paced and proficiency-based. We’ll focus the overall structure of the course and the method for grading. We’ll share our results on pre and post tests that the students have taken as well as anecdotal evidence. Although developed for this specific course, the model can be adapted for other subjects and grade levels.
