Plotz, Thomas; Hopf, Martin – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
Conceptual Change is a widely accepted theoretical framework for science education. Setting up successful learning and teaching arrangements in this framework necessarily entails including students´ preconceptions into the construction of those arrangements. In order to provide a basis for such arrangements this study investigated and explored…

Halperin, Kopl; Dunbar, William S. – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
Do multiple choice unit tests reflect what students have learned during the unit? The day before the administration of a county-mandated multiple choice test, two classes were shown a topic they had not previously seen, and told it would be on the test. One class was shown the same material and told it was not important, and two classes were not…
