Correlating students' views about experimental physics with their sense of project ownership
written by Dimitri R. Dounas-Frazer and H. J. Lewandowski
Multiweek projects in physics labs can engage students in authentic experimentation practices, and it is important to understand student experiences during projects along multiple dimensions. To this end, we conducted an exploratory quantitative investigation to look for connections between students' pre-project views about experimental physics and their post-project sense of project ownership. We administered the Colorado Learning Attitudes About Science Survey for Experimental Physics (E-CLASS) and the Project Ownership Survey (POS) to 96 students enrolled in 6 lab courses at 5 universities. E-CLASS and POS scores were positively correlated, suggesting that students' views about experimentation may be linked to their ownership of projects. This finding motivates future studies that could explore whether these constructs are causally related.
