A Four-Level Framework for Identifying and Classifying Student Conceptual and Reasoning Difficulties.
Grayson, Diane J.; Anderson, Trevor R.; Crossley, L. Gail
International Journal of Science Education, v23 n6 p611-22 Jun 2001
Describes a framework for identifying and classifying students' alternative conceptions and unscientific patterns of reasoning within a particular scientific domain. Provides a basic system for indicating how much researchers know about students' non-scientific conceptions and reasoning. Suggests how the framework may prove useful for systematically exploring student difficulties in new content areas and synthesizing existing research. (Contains 22 references.) (Author/ASK)
