Resource Selection in Nearly-Novel Situations 

written by Eleanor C. Sayre, Michael C. Wittmann, and John R. Thompson

We developed an iterative survey to study the process of resource selection in a specific nearly-novel situation - the design of vacuum tube diodes. Preliminary data from upper-level undergraduate physics majors suggest that the ability to identify diode function in simple circuits predicts the ability to construct diodes.
