Abstract

An assessment tool that uses VR Panoramas was developed to study middle school student acquisition of concepts regarding three-dimensional surface mapping of the earth. Students were required to find their location on a contour map by investigating a panorama of the area. After reviewing the panorama, students selected their best guess of their location on the contour map. The software provided feedback for each guess. We will demonstrate the web-based software, overview successful and unsuccessful student strategies, and discuss possible modifications to the software that may lead to greater student success.
