Abstract [en]

Several learning studies in the field of science education describe the final state of students’ concepts of, e.g., air pressure or chemical bonding as a multi-layered cognitive conceptual structure (manifold conceptions, multiple frameworks). The hypothesis of a multi-layered cognitive structure assumes that students - e.g., when asked to explain a specific problem - are able to activate significantly differing and competing understandings of a single concept and that therefore no essential shift of context is necessary.

Concerning atomic physics, our hypothesis of cognitive layers is based on an explorative case study (Petri & Niedderer, 1998). In a new analysis of our interview data, we investigated the cognitive structure of six students with respect to their individual layers at the end of the course (Petri & Niedderer, 2001). Our findings, which confirm the important role of cognitive layers during conceptual change, are summarized and discussed in this paper
