The Astronomy Center has provided educational resources to introductory astronomy educators since 2003. Over the past 20 years, the rapid pace of discovery has rendered some of our linked resources obsolete. Thus, the Astronomy Center will be decommissioned on March 1, 2022. Our highest quality resources will be retained on ComPADRE.org.
This article reports on students' preexisting knowledge and examines misconceptions among nonscience major undergraduate students. The author focuses on evaluating results of misconceptions in selected astronomy courses.
