Welcome to the NC State Physics Education Research Group!
Our faculty members and graduate students
constitute one of the most well-known and respected PER Groups in the nation.
Historically, we have made significant contributions
to the field in assessments such
as TUG-K and BEMA; we have made curricular contributions,
such as the development and implementation of the Matter
and Interactions curriculum; and we have developed
the SCALE-UP studio classroom
environment. Our faculty and graduate students have also
contributed to the development of WebAssign and
visualization programs such as VPython and VideoGraph.
The APS journal Physical Review:
Physics Education Research originated here.
We have varied interests including assessments, problem-solving, visualization, and pedagogical and curricular reform. If you're interested in joining or visiting us, please don't hesitate to contact us!
