Author Bio

Charles H. Atwood

Dr. Charles H. Atwood received his BS degree in chemistry from Millsaps College and his PhD in nuclear chemistry from Florida State University. His postdoctoral research was conducted at the Australian National University. A temporary appointment at the University of Georgia was followed by a ten-year stay at Mercer University, where Dr. Atwood developed a series of papers on teaching nuclear topics in the chemistry curriculum. In 1995, he joined the faculty of the University of Georgia’s chemistry department and was named Coordinator of Freshman Chemistry in 1997. At the University of Georgia, Dr. Atwood developed significant use of instructional technology in the freshman chemistry program, including pioneering computerized testing. In 2011 Dr. Atwood accepted the Ronald and Eileen Ragsdale Professor of Chemical Education position at the University of Utah. Over the last ten years, his research group has studied the use of item response theory to analyze student performance on assessments, with the ultimate goal of improving student learning and performance. He is the author of two other successful SURVIVAL GUIDES. His hobbies include astronomy, traveling, and bicycle riding.
