View Resource Secondary Students' Cognitive Processes for the Line Graph from Graph Components

This paper, presented at the 2002 Physics Education Research Conference, presents the results of a study intended to investigate students' cognitive processes when reading line graphs. The researchers developed a computer program to determine the order readers glance the components of a line graph, and then analyzed the glancing order of each component. The results help identify secondary...

View Resource Designing Diagnostic Assessments

This paper, presented at the 2002 Physics Education Research Conference, describes the process of creating diagnostic assessments to assist teachers in formatively assessing their students. The process begins with the learning targets and ends with the creation of web-delivered sets of questions designed to diagnose students' facets of thinking. Early analysis from the first year of...

View Resource Self-reflection, Epistemological Beliefs, and Conceptual Gains

This paper, presented at the 2001 Physics Education Research Conference, researchers discuss how they studied weekly journals written by students to begin answering three questions related to epistemological beliefs and self-reflection: (1) How articulate are students in describing how they learn? (2) How consistently do students report particular ways of learning? (3) Are there correlations...

View Resource Implications of Distributed Cognition for PER

This paper, presented at the 2002 Physics Education Research Conference, discusses how Cognitive Science has influenced physics education research and introduces the 'radical' notion of distributed cognition, which posits that our surroundings and tools have intelligence. After the introduction of this notion, the author discusses a few implications for physics education research.
