SUBMIT POTENTIAL NEW QUESTIONS HERE.

Questions written for a concept inventory, especially one that is designed for evaluation and research, must be valid and reliable. For example, external review of questions, such as through this wiki, is one way to establish validity.

The FIRST step in developing strong questions is making sure that established guidelines for writing good questions are followed. All questions submitted for inclusion on the GCI must, first and foremost, use ACTUAL STUDENT IDEAS as incorrect response options.

All submissions of potential GCI questions must provide information about the question(s) and author(s).

We may rewrite your questions to make sure they align with best practices in scale development. You can learn more about writing good questions in our .
