  The Physics Department at NZIC continues to make good use of MasteringPhysics, which is an instructor assigned online tutorial, problem solving and short essay writing assessment system. It provides students with customised coaching and individualised feedback to help improve problem-solving skills, understanding of key concepts and to help improve student’s critical thinking ability.

  Students in the February University of Auckland Foundation Programme during 2013 worked through 35 tutorials and assignments and answered more than 350 questions in total. Their feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.


  “I enjoyed it. The questions are not very hard and they strengthened my understanding of sophisticated concepts.”

  “I liked MasteringPhysics, it was useful at the time of catching up with a topic.”

  “It has helped me understand the details I missed duringclass.”

  “It gives me a chance to repeat questions that I have difficulty with.”

  “It has helped me to understand each topic more and to practise my knowledge, and also to see what topics I need to study more.”

  “It has helped me change some wrong views about concepts.”

  Students like the immediate feedback for wrong answers. They can score more than 100% by giving correct responses without using hints.

  This year, MasteringPhysics releases its new HTML5 format, which enables students to view the questions on their iPads. Also, software called “Learning Catalytics” has been added as a tab to the Mastering suite of programmes. This software provides real time in-class assessment of student responses to the MasteringPhysics questions via any mobile device. This will also be a valuable resource for teachers as they can monitor and support student understanding in ‘real time’ in the classroom.
