View Resource Graduate and Undergraduate Students' Views on Learning and Teaching Physics

This paper, presented at the 2002 Physics Education Research Conference, summarizes a study that describes graduate and undergraduate students' views on learning and teaching physics. The results indicate that most graduate students use themselves as 'templates' for good learning methods and implemented them in their teaching practice expecting that the undergraduate students could do the same....

View Resource Development of an Introductory Physics Problem-Solving Assessment Tool

This paper, presented at the 2001 Physics Education Research Conference, discusses the physics education research group at Rensselaer which is working to develop an assessment tool that will measure the problem-solving ability of introductory physics students. In its final form, the tool will consist of approximately 30-40 multiple-choice questions related to a limited number of classical...

View Resource Identifying Students' Models of Sound Propagation

This paper, presented at the 2002 Physics Education Research Conference, discusses the authors' investigation of students' mental models of sound propagation in introductory physics classes. In addition to the scientifically accepted wave model, students used the "entity" model. The authors discuss how students use these models in various contexts before and after instruction. This study also...

View Resource Gender, Math, and the Force Concept Inventory (FCI)

This research paper, presented at the 2002 Physics Education Research Conference, examines how a math background may interact with gender on the FCI assessment instrument. 300 non-physics students were given one of two versions of the Force Concept Inventory, along with a brief demographic questionnaire. The trends suggest a preliminary conclusion that math preparation has little effect on FCI...

View Resource Developing the Lunar Phases Concept Inventory

This paper, presented at the 2002 Physics Education Research Conference, discuss the development of the Lunar Phases Concept Inventory, as well as results from field-testing the instrument at five institutions across the United States. The Lunar Phases Concept Inventory (LPCI) was developed to aid instructors in assessing students' mental models of lunar phases. Based upon an in-depth qualitative...
