Analyzing Misconceptions using the Signals and Systems Concept Inventory and Student Interviews
2006 Edition, September 1, 2006 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

The signals and systems concept inventory (SSCI) is a 25-question multiple-choice exam designed to assess students' understanding of fundamental concepts in signals and systems. Nine students were interviewed about their...

Using interviews to Identify Student misconceptions in dynamics
2007 Edition, October 1, 2007 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

There is substantial evidence that most students graduating with engineering degrees do not possess basic scientific knowledge. Assessments of conceptual understanding have shown repeatedly that students are unable to answer qualitative questions about even the most fundamental...

Some misconceptions frequently detected in students of compiler construction courses
2019 Edition, November 1, 2019 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

This paper reports some misconceptions that are frequently detected in students of introductory compiler construction courses. Compiler construction is a topic included in many university computer science programs. It deals with the design and implementation of...

Students' Misconceptions About Medium-Scale Integrated Circuits
2011 Edition, Volume 54, November 1, 2011 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

To improve instruction in computer engineering and computer science, instructors must better understand how their students learn. Unfortunately, little is known about how students learn the fundamental concepts in computing. To investigate student...

Open channel flow misconceptions and ontological categories
2012 Edition, October 1, 2012 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

National calls have been made for the identification of preconceptions and misconceptions in science and engineering. Identifying misconceptions can provide a basis for improved research-based curriculum development and implementation. The recognition of...

Workshop - The Signals and Systems Concept Inventory
2008 Edition, October 1, 2008 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

The signals and systems concept inventory (SSCI) is a 25 question multiple choice exam designed to assess studentspsila conceptual understanding in signals and systems (S&S), a common core course in electrical and computer engineering...

Preventing persistent misconceptions with first-year engineering students
2013 Edition, October 1, 2013 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Previous studies on student misconceptions of science and engineering concepts focused on repairing and correcting misconceptions after they have formed. However, it may be too difficult or too late to correct and repair such misconceptions by the...

Using simulation and structured group work to address statistical misconceptions
2016 Edition, October 1, 2016 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

There is significant interest in research regarding student understanding and performance, especially in probability and statistics. Past research has focused on misconceptions in statistical inference, but, there is little research regarding...
