Journal of Research in Science Teaching
written by Herman G. Weller
Investigated a microcomputer-based system for the diagnosis and remediation of three Aristotelian alternative conceptions of force and motion held by eighth-grade physical science students. Reports that computer simulations exemplifying canonical conceptions facilitate alteration of students' naive conceptions to a significant degree. Suggests improvements for the computer diagnosis and remediation system.
