PHEC 2011 Time-Resolved Student Learning

  1. 1. Physics Education Research The University of Edinburgh Time-resolved student learning Ross GallowayDarren Hendrie, Simon Bates, Judy Hardy
  2. 2. Physics Education Research The University of EdinburghMotivation – diagnostic testing Heckler & Sayre, Am. J. Phys. 78 7, July 2010 “What happens between pre- and post-tests: Multiple measurements of student understanding during an introductory physics course” 2
  3. 3. Physics Education Research The University of EdinburghWhat happens between pre- and post-tests? 3
  4. 4. Physics Education Research The University of EdinburghWhat happens between pre- and post-tests? Heckler & Sayre, Am. J. Phys. 78 7, July 2010 4
  5. 5. Physics Education Research The University of EdinburghWorkshop sampling 5
  6. 6. Physics Education Research The University of EdinburghAssessment instrument 6
  7. 7. Physics Education Research The University of EdinburghScore profiles 7
  8. 8. Physics Education Research The University of EdinburghAcceleration and velocity vectors ‘No change’ 8
  9. 9. Physics Education Research The University of EdinburghFree Body Diagrams ‘Slow build’ 9
  10. 10. Physics Education Research The University of EdinburghSimple Harmonic Motion ‘Weird’ 10
  11. 11. Physics Education Research The University of EdinburghConclusions • Simple models of ‘learning follows instruction’ do not appear to apply • Long term and repeated exposure appears necessary for complete acquisition of ability • Weirdness is seen – we don’t fully understand this 11
