Study Invitation: CHIRAL Impact

Dear chemistry education community,

We invite you to participate in an NSF-sponsored research study (#1915424) conducted at Auburn University. This study is part of the larger CHIRAL (CHemistry Instrument Review and Assessment Library) project that seeks to gather chemistry education assessments and the evidence for validity and reliability to support them. We hope that this tool will be valuable for researchers and educators alike when everyone has convenient access to quality assessments and the evidence to support their quality. This study invites both instructors/teachers of all educational levels and researchers to share their knowledge and perspectives about several issues relating to the validity and reliability of assessments and how the information presented on the CHIRAL website has the potential to change those perspectives. Participants will be asked to participate in an initial survey (1 question, 5-10 minutes to complete, link below) and interview (~30-60 minutes) gauging their current conceptions and perspectives. Next, participants will be asked to participate in a final survey (1 question, 5-10 minutes to complete, link below).

Participants will receive a $50 Amazon gift card as a thank you for their time and perspectives. If you are interested in this opportunity, please click the link below and upon completion of the survey, you will get emails from us to schedule an interview. If you have any questions about this project or how you can participate, please do not hesitate to contact please contact Yousif Muten ( or Dr. Jordan Harshman ( Upon your request to participate, you will be provided with a consent form that provides further details about the project and about your involvement and rights as a research participant.
