Abstract

This paper describes a continuing study into the effect of multimedia resources on student mastery of the Periodic Table, and related phenomena. The multimedia include a hard-copy textbook (Howell, 2005), a sequence of Flash movies, and a series of drag-and-drop practice quizzes, the latter of which are delivered using the quizzing tool "Perception". Results from a preliminary study on the teaching and assessment of the Periodic Table, using the drag-and-drop feature are described. Results from student surveys are also presented. Somewhat surprisingly, the students believe that the textbook is a more effective way of learning the Periodic Table than either the Flash Movies or the drag-and-drop exercises.
