Some Factors Affecting Student Performance in Physics.
Brekke, Stewart E.
Spectrum, p18-20 Sum 1994
Factors that may affect success in high school or introductory college physics typically include cognitive structure such as formation of problem-solving schemata, visual-spatial abilities, induced cognitive structures of sex roles, and such external factors as teaching style and curriculum. All are important in passing a physics course as measured by the problem solving of physics problems. (PVD)
