Title: A Force Concept Correlation Study with Instructional Methods, Anxiety, Perceptions of Difficulty and Student Background Variables
Url: http://www.compadre.org/portal/services/detail.cfm?ID=4384
Creator: Grim, Nancy
Publisher: ComPADRE
Description: This paper reports on a study that used Hestenes' Force Concept Inventory (FCI) to describe Newtonian force concepts and misconception belief systems held by preservice teachers in physical science and physics students attending an urban university in Chicago, Illinois. Results indicate that constructivist instruction in force concepts was of higher quality than traditional instruction. Several significant correlations are also reported between FCI scores and parental education level, the number of science and math courses taken in high school or college, gender, science/math anxiety, and perception of difficulty scores in science and math. An annotated bibliography and copies of questionnaires used in the study are included in the appendices.
