Description:

This research paper, presented at the 2002 Physics Education Research Conference, discusses the authors' research on student use of resources in learning quantum mechanics, which shows that a student often needs to make judgments among competing ideas. The researchers state that they see the potential to develop a new category of resources, meta-resources, to model the views and beliefs as well as meta-cognitive processes that students use in making judgments. Examples from student interviews are discussed as initial evidence for a larger scale investigation toward this area.
