    Notes: Conclusion The language used in the science education literature often serves the explicit function of presenting information and making cases but it also conveys implicit messages and points to links outside the technical framework of science education. The “pupil-as-scientist” metaphor is embedded in a rich network of associated ideas only some of which have been exploited in research in this and other areas.

    Notes: Abstract The existence of similarities between the ideas of modern students and those of early scientists have led to suggestions about how the history of science can be used to help students undergo similar transitions to those experienced by early generations of scientists. In this paper attention is focused not only on these similarities but also on some crucial differences between the processes and concepts or conceptual frameworks of these two groups of people. In the light of these similarities and differences some of the implications for producing and using historical material in the science classroom are discussed.

    Notes: Abstract Much discussion has recently taken place about uses which can be made of historical material in science teaching. A great deal of advice, taking advantage of the particular and unique contributions which the history of science can make to science education, is available. The encounter between Thomas Huxley and Bishop Wilberforce in 1860 is frequently referred to when teaching about the theory of evolution and an investigation of the main characteristics of reports of this incident in both educational and historical literature has been carried out. The purposes of using this incident in the educational setting are identified and the appropriateness of these purposes is discussed in the light of a historical understanding of this encounter.

    Notes: Abstract Many studies have shown that Newton's Third Law of Motion is not easy for students to accept when they consider the interaction of two objects. A number of prominent science educators believe that it should not be taught to students before Year 11. This paper reports the results of a study of the historical origins of Newton's Third Law with a view to identifying the context from which it emerged in the 17th century and the conceptual changes which accompanied its emergence. Some of the possible implications of a study such as this for improving the teaching of introductory mechanics are discussed.

    Notes: Abstract Newton's third law is not something which students easily accept. This is largely due to the widespread notion that the force exerted by a moving body is directly related to the speed or to the mass of the body (or to both) and not to the nature of any interaction in which that body might be involved. The aim of the paper is to identify some of the issues upon which debate took place over the phenomenon of impact in the early 18th Century. This is achieved by studying a number of the popular textbooks and commentaries on mechanics which were published at that time. Some implications for teaching Newtonian mechanics are outlined.

    Notes: Conclusion The substance of the case which has been presented is not that any of the procedures that are currently used to develop tests should be discarded but that a richer source of data should be used to make judgements about the validity of tests. It has been argued that the production of valid tests requires a subject-oriented approach and that interviews are a valuable source of information for assisting in the development of such tests. Interviews can be used in the initial exploration of the ways in which potential subjects perceive an area of knowledge, in the trialling of test items and even in the final administration of the completed test. One added bonus of such an approach is that it helps to bring together in a complementary fashion research paradigms which are more often seen to be in competition with one another.

    Notes: Conclusion In three-quarters of the student-item pairs the multiple-choice items correctly identified the use of adequate or inadequate strategies so on a general level the items might be thought to have performed satisfactorily. However as diagnostic tools they were generally inadequate and this fact points to the desirability of using the student-oriented procedure for constructing such items. In this procedure student understanding of the domain of knowledge is probed through interviews and distractors are designed to reflect the dominant types of misconceptions. The importance of the school-related context was something which emerged during the interviews and, in the light of the discrepancy between student understanding as revealed through school tests and interview studies, this is an area to which more attention needs to be given.
