American Journal of Physics
written by Diane J. Grayson
sub author: Lillian C. McDermott
Describes using computer-based interviews as a research technique for investigating how students think about physics. One program called Graphs and Tracks, designed for use as an instructional aid, displays motions of a ball rolling along a track. Another program called Atwood requires students to predict effects on motion or graphs of motion.
