Research in Science Education
written by Pamela Mulhall, Brian McKittrick, and Richard Gunstone
Considers research that shows very poor student understanding after the teaching of electricity and draws two broad conclusions of central relevance to the teaching of electricity: (1) there is an absence of any systemic consensus as to what models are appropriate for students at different year levels and for different intended learning outcomes; and (2) there is no consensus as to appropriate learning outcomes for electricity at different levels.
