written by Mel S. Sabella, Dr. Kim Coble, and Samuel Bowen

Physics Education Researchers have provided instructors with (1) tools to assess student learning, (2) details on the state of student knowledge, and (3) instructional materials and learning environments that have proven to be effective in promoting understanding. The majority of this work has centered on students and instruction at the traditional research university.
