Effect of Experience on Retention and Elimination of Misconceptions about Molecular Structure and Bonding
Department or Administrative Unit
A test designed to uncover misconceptions in molecular structure and bonding was administered to students from high school through graduate school and to some college faculty. The study tracked the disappearance of these misconceptions over a time span of 10 years of student experience, along with the development of accepted conceptions.
