Using Visual Assessments and Tutorials to Teach Solar System Concepts in Introductory Astronomy
LoPresto, Michael C.
Astronomy Education Review, v9 n1 2010
Visual assessments and tutorials are instruments that rely on student construction and/or examination of pictures and/or diagrams rather than multiple choice and/or short answer questions. Being a very visual subject, astronomy lends itself to assessments and tutorials of this type. What follows is a report on the results of the use of visual assessments and tutorials for instruction on two specific solar system topics in introductory astronomy: the orbits of comets and extrasolar planets. (Contains 2 notes, 4 tables and 8 figures.)
