The Draw-An-Ecosystem Task as an Assessment Tool in Environmental Science Education
Science Education and Civic Engagement: An International Journal
If we can assess how students conceptualize an ecosystem at the start of a course, then we can measure the difference at the end of the course. Additionally, understanding what knowledge they possess at the start of a course will help us expand their knowledge base in a manner tailored to their initial understandings and their needs.
