First, bravo to you for your dedication in wanting to improve microbiology education. The Microbiology Concept Inventory (MCI) can serve as a part of your effort to make learning in your classroom better. There are actually two microbiology concept inventories to choose from. The MCI is tailored toward courses that teach a course focused on microbiology majors. The Medical Health Sciences Concept Inventory was designed for a non-major, health-sciences related microbiology course. How do you decide which one to use? Here is a useful table to help you decide.
|Your course is required for Microbiology Majors||Your course is not required for Microbiology Majors|
|Your course is a general survey of Microbiology||Your course focuses more on Clinical Microbiology and Health aspects of Microbiology|
|Your course has more metabolism||Your course has more pathology|
|Your course covers more Microbial Diversity||Your course focuses more on Pathogens|

I apologize for the hoops that you have to jump through, but we want to manage access to the MCI carefully. Please do not share the MCI with other researchers, but refer them to this website.
