Calculus Concept Inventory (Epstein)

While this paper and the tool it uses have been critiqued, this paper makes a compelling case that not all active learning classrooms are equal and that we need to strive for environments in which students articulate their thinking to get feedback in quick and meaningful cycles. While the paper is intended for educators, having students read it can be helpful for building student buy-in for active learning, especially if they feel that they would be learning more by listening.
