The Acquisition of Qualitative Physics Knowledge during Textbook-Based Physics Training.
Ploetzner, Rolf; VanLehn, Kurt
Cognition and Instruction, v15 n2 p169-205 1997
Used computerized simulation models of qualitative, conceptual problem solving and quantitative problem solving to examine qualitative physics knowledge acquisition during textbook-based physics training. Found that qualitative knowledge was acquired on the basis of explicit textbook information, but there were also cases of qualitative learning on the basis of implicit information which led to less frequent use of incorrect qualitative preknowledge.
