Soft Clustering of Physics Misconceptions Using a Mixed Membership Model

Abstract

Students often possess multiple, conflicting misconceptions which may be activated and expressed in different contexts. In this paper, we use a mixed membership model to explore the patterns of misconceptions in introductory physics. Mixed membership models have been widely used for modeling observations that have partial membership in several latent groups… (More)
