The Initial State of Students Taking an Introductory Physics MOOC 

written by John M. Aiken, Shih-Yin Lin, Scott S. Douglas, Edwin F. Greco, Brian D. Thoms, Michael F. Schatz, and Marcos D. Caballero

As part of a larger research project into massively open online courses (MOOCs), we have investigated student background, as well as student participation in a physics MOOC with a laboratory component. Students completed a demographic survey and the Force and Motion Conceptual Evaluation at the beginning of the course. While the course was still actively running, we tracked student participation over the first five weeks of the eleven-week course.
