Abstract

We have developed a prototype web-based homework environment (Homework Tutor) for delivering a physics homework assignment. The prototype provides students with feedback, incentives and interactivity while addressing known difficulties of the topic chosen. The questions are provided in an inquiry-based format. Students can manipulate the different physical parameters before answering the questions. The scoring scheme provides the students with incentives for improving their scores and completing the full assignment. The homework tutor is intended for college level classes but can still be used for other levels of instruction and with other subjects.
