Using Handheld Computers to Support Improved Classroom Assessment in Science: Results from a Field Trial
Journal of Science Education and Technology Vol. 15, No. 2 (April 2006) pp. 142–158
A variety of handheld applications and curricular materials have been developed to support inquiry science learning in recent years, but there are few handheld-supported assessment activities available to teachers. In Project WHIRL, researchers from ...
Journal of the Learning Sciences Vol. 17, No. 2 (April 2008) pp. 248–286
We report on the initial attempts at evaluating "at scale" a particular technological/curricular innovation that enables more students to develop deeper knowledge. The methods, issues, and findings of the current pilot experiment speak not only to...
