Conference Proceedings Detail Page

written by Michael C. Wittmann and Jeffrey T. Morgan
During  individual clinical interviews, the interaction between researcher and interviewee leads  to a specific set of data that can later be  interpreted from several viewpoints. In this paper, we describe three  analyses of a student's reasoning. First, we describe her "physics  reasoning" in terms of the physical situation she describes and  the "difficulties" she has in reasoning about the interview question.  Second, we describe some "reasoning resources" that she uses. Finally,  we describe "epistemological resources" that may influence her reasoning about  quantum physics. We conclude with a discussion of implications about  the practice of interviews and their analysis.
