The Physics Teacher
written by Shelley Yeo and Marjan Zadnik
We describe a pen and paper instrument designed to provide a measure of a range of student beliefs about thermal phenomena. The trial version, administered to 478 high school and university students aged 15–18 years, was able to distinguish belief changes in two populations, year 11 and first-year university physics students. We have used the revised instrument as a pre-test and post-test for evaluating students' conceptual change following instruction. The instrument, called the Thermal Concept Evaluation, is appended.
