Assessment of Physlet Use:  Student Perceptions

Technical difficulties and misunderstandings cause students frustration.

"Sometimes the Physlets were difficult for me to figure out how to work and therefore I did not get the right concepts from them."

"I had a tendency to misunderstand how to use them.  That was frustrating because I could not demonstrate what I knew on the topic at hand."

"Measuring on the computer screen can be difficult."


Physlet problems should not be given to students without the proper classroom support!
