Description:

Much of the research investigating how a student reasons or what knowledge structures they possess and utilize has typically been done using clinical interviews. Clinical interviews are often semi-structured and may or may not involve demonstration equipment. In the early 1980's, mathematics researchers began using a new style of interviewing which they termed the "teaching experiment." These two methods will be compared and contrasted within the context of sound. Two groups of students from a conceptually-based introductory physics course were interviewed in an effort to understand how they view the production of sound in musical instruments; one group was interviewed using clinical interviews while the second group was interviewed using the teaching experiment.
