kahveci group research

The Kahveci Group at Loyola University Chicago (LUC) specializes in research at the intersection of education, technology, and psychology, with a particular emphasis on chemistry education. Our main research expertise is in inferential statistics, and we use a combination of quantitative and qualitative methods in our research.

One area of focus for our group is understanding the affective states of both teachers and students and how they impact learning outcomes in chemistry. We have published books such as "Affective Dimensions in Chemistry Education" and articles on topics such as instructional interactivity, technology use in education, and science teacher discontentment.

In addition to our research, we also develop new assessment methods and learning tools, such as graphical representations, to improve student understanding of challenging scientific concepts. We analyze data from international assessments and work to validate scales to measure affective states and conceptual learning.

Our group has presented our research at conferences such as the Biennial Conference on Chemical Education and the European Conference on Research in Chemical Education. Dr. Kahveci has also served as an independent expert reviewer for the European Union in Brussels to review grant proposals submitted to FP7 Science in Society in years 2008, 2009, and 2010.
