  • Laverty, James T; Caballero, Marcos Daniel (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2018)
    Assessing student learning is a cornerstone of educational practice. Standardized assessments have played a significant role in the development of instruction, curricula, and educational spaces in college physics. However, ...
  • Odden, Tor Ole; Caballero, Marcos Daniel (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2019)
    Computation holds great potential for introducing new opportunities for creativity and exploration into the physics curriculum. At the University of Oslo we have begun development of a new class of assignment called ...
  • Pawlak, Alanna; Irving, Paul W; Caballero, Marcos Daniel (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2018)
    Group work is becoming increasingly common in introductory physics classrooms. Understanding how students engage in these group learning environments is important for designing and facilitating productive learning opportunities ...
  • Sand, Odd Petter; Odden, Tor Ole; Lindstrøm, Christine; Caballero, Marcos Daniel (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2018)
    We present a case study featuring a first-year bio-science university student using computation to solve a radioactive decay problem and interpret the results. In a semi-structured cognitive interview, we use this case to ...
  • Young, Nicholas; Allen, Grant; Aiken, John Mark; Henderson, Rachel; Caballero, Marcos Daniel (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2019)
    Computation is a central aspect of 21st century physics practice; it is used to model complicated systems, to simulate impossible experiments, and to analyze mountains of data. Physics departments and their faculty are ...
  • Aiken, John Mark; Henderson, Rachel; Caballero, Marcos Daniel (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2019)
    Physics education research (PER) has used quantitative modeling techniques to explore learning, affect, and other aspects of physics education. However, these studies have rarely examined the predictive output of the models, ...
  • Odden, Tor Ole; Lockwood, Elise; Caballero, Marcos Daniel (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2019)
    Computation is becoming an increasingly important part of physics education. However, there are currently few theories of learning that can be used to help explain and predict the unique challenges and affordances associated ...
  • Caballero, Marcos Daniel; Merner, Laura (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2018)
    A national survey of physics faculty was conducted to investigate the prevalence and nature of computational instruction in physics courses across the United States. 1246 faculty from 357 unique institutions responded to ...
  • Odden, Tor Ole; Marin, Alessandro; Caballero, Marcos Daniel (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2020)
    We have used an unsupervised machine learning method called latent Dirichlet allocation (LDA) to thematically analyze all papers published in the Physics Education Research Conference Proceedings between 2001 and 2018. By ...
