Framework for Students’ Epistemological Development in Physics Experiments
written by Dehui Hu and Benjamin M. Zwickl
In order to better understand the impact of lab courses and experiential learning on students' views of professional physics and physics careers, we are developing tools that assess students' epistemology specifically related to physics experiments. We developed an open-ended survey about doing physics experiments and administered the survey to students from introductory-level to graduate level students.  We then constructed a framework of student epistemology of experimental physics, which includes topics such as link between theory and experiment, autonomy in experimentation, and justifications for the validity of experiments. We also identified key aspects of epistemological development from introductory physics students to graduate students.
