This paper, presented at the 2002 Physics Education Research Conference, describes alternative formative assessment techniques and their implementation in an introductory physics course. These techniques help students develop some abilities that are used by scientists and engineers: reflection on the knowledge construction, question posing, statement evaluation, and convincing others in the...

View Resource The Effect of Question Order on Responses to Multiple-choice Questions

This paper, presented at the 2002 Physics Education Research Conference, investigates how the order of two related FCI questions (#13 and 14) affects students' responses. This study also investigates the effect an unrelated FCI question (#23) has on answers to the above problems. Four versions of a survey were administered before and after instruction to 243 students taking an algebra-based...

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 Research-based Instructional Software in Modern Physics

In teaching mathematics or science, understanding how to incorporate instructional technology and evaluate its impact is of great importance. We report on how we are using physics education research both as a guide to the way we develop computer-based curriculum and as a means of assessment. The context of our study is modern physics, which is a subject being taught in a growing number of classes...

View Resource Physics Education Research Central

This fine site serves as "an informational touchpoint and online community for 'producers' and 'consumers' of physics education research (PER)." The site is provided by the American Association of Physics Teachers and visitors can search through thousands of articles, theses and dissertations, research groups, curricular material, and news and events. First-time visitors can use the search engine...
