Thursday Seminar on "Towards a content based epistemic measure in physics"

Date: 27 April, 2017
Time: 15:30 - 16:30

Venue: Main Building Lecture Room - G1

Coordinator: Prof. Jyotsna Vijapurkar

Speaker: Amogh Sirnoorkar, Abstract: Student epistemology has been an important focus of physics education research. Several survey instruments have been developed to assess students’ epistemic beliefs, attitudes and expectations. We report work on developing an epistemic measure of physics in terms of the ability to discriminate between different types of epistemic warrants underlying a typical mathematical derivation in physics. To illustrate the idea, we construct a tool based on a familiar derivation in physics and administer it on a fairly large sample of students from different institutes in India. The reliability of the tool is examined. Several significant trends emerge from the data on the correlation between epistemic score and academic performance, and the extent and kinds of epistemic pitfalls prevalent among physics undergraduates.
