Comparing Recent Organizing Templates for Test Content between ACS Exams in General Chemistry and AP ChemistryJournal of Chemical Education
Publication VersionPublished Version
AbstractTwo different versions of “big ideas” rooted content maps have recently been published for general chemistry. As embodied in the content outline from the College Board, one of these maps is designed to guide curriculum development and testing for advanced placement (AP) chemistry. The Anchoring Concepts Content Map for general chemistry from the ACS Exams Institute is a component of a larger content map for the four-year undergraduate curriculum. This article compares the structure and content in these two maps to provide perspective on the current nature of the general chemistry curriculum. This contribution is part of a special issue on teaching introductory chemistry in the context of the AP chemistry course redesign.
