Seeking research participants for our concept test content validation study

Dear Educators, 

We are recruiting chemistry educators to assist us with content validation of a concept test that aims to measure students' thinking about the qualitative aspects of acid and base strength. Those who have taught organic chemistry at any level are especially invited to volunteer.

Volunteers will be asked to provide feedback on test items through an online questionnaire, which is anticipated to take approximately 30 to 60 minutes.
