Impact of Interactive Teaching Methods on Heterogeneity

  • We describe an investigation of the heterogeneity in conceptual understanding of first-year engineering students by using the force concept inventory (FCI) as a diagnostic tool. The average FCI pre- and posttest results depend significantly on the type of school graduation. Even interactive teaching methods that have proven to be more effective in learning outcome cannot dissolve this heterogeneity within the first year of university study.
