In many disciplines, multiple-choice tests have been developed to gauge student prior knowledge and assess learning. Effective instruction hinges in part on understanding what prior knowledge students bring to the classroom, and on evaluating how this knowledge changes during instruction.
Only the hard parts like skeletons and teeth remain long enough to keep the imprint in the rock while the rock is forming.
Most of these marine fossils do not form in the far depths of the sea known as the Abyssal Zone because the sediment at the bottom of the Abyssal zone is generally dragged into the mantle of the Earth, as opposed to rising to the land.
As said above, fossils usually form in water because sedimentation occurs.
However, gains among participants enrolled in revised course sections (n = 84) averaged 7-8%.
Detailed analysis shows that statistically significant gains occurred on test items related to geologic time, earthquakes, radiometric dating, and tectonics.
