American Journal of Physics
written by Lillian C. McDermott
This article describes the fruitful interaction that can occur between research in physics education and the development of instructional software. The first part illustrates how results from research can guide the design of instructional software; the second part demonstrates how the computer itself can be used as an investigatory tool for conducting research on student understanding in physics. The discussion is in the context of specific examples based on work by the Physics Education Group at the University of Washington.
