Improving students’ understanding of quantum measurement. II. Development of research-based learning tools 

written by Guangtian Zhu and Chandralekha Singh

We describe the development and implementation of research-based learning tools such as the Quantum Interactive Learning Tutorials and peer-instruction tools to reduce students' common difficulties with issues related to measurement in quantum mechanics. A preliminary evaluation shows that these learning tools are effective in improving students' understanding of concepts related to quantum measurement.
