The impact of peer interaction on the responses to clicker questions in an upper-level quantum mechanics course
written by Ryan Sayer, Emily Marshman, and Chandralekha Singh
In this case study, we investigated the effectiveness of peer interaction on responses to in-class clicker questions in an upper-level quantum mechanics course. We analyzed student performance on clicker questions answered individually and then again after interaction with peers. We also analyzed student performance by topic. In general, the performance on the clicker questions improved after interaction with peers following individual clicker responses. We also find evidence of co-construction of knowledge in that students who did not answer the clicker questions individually were able to answer them correctly after discussion with peers. Finally, we discuss the trends in the percentage of students present in class who responded to the clicker questions in the allotted time as the semester progressed.
