Student Cognition in Physics Group Exams
written by Timothy M. Sault, Hunter G. Close, and Steven F. Wolf
Exams are intended to give faculty information about what students know, and where they need more support. But traditional analyses that get shipped with the exam results received from the university scoring office focus on the exam items, not students' ideas. Moreover, one of our goals for students is building their cognitive network of physics concepts. With sets of contextually related questions, we can analyze students' cognitive network as applied to a particular context. We report on the effectiveness of existing tools in identifying patterns in student responses on both individual and group exams.
