Abstract

This study investigates students' understanding of kinematics graphs and calculate students' normalised learning gain after an instruction on the topic. The instrument used in this research is the 26-item Test of Understanding Graphs - Kinematics (TUG-K). The samples in this study were 60 physics students from the Faculty of Applied Sciences, UiTM Shah Alam. The TUG-K were administered twice to the students: the pre test at the beginning of the semester and the post test after the fourth week of the semester. The students were given 45 minutes to complete the test. The data from the pre and post test were analyzed and the student normalised learning gain (NLG) were computed by using the Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) software. In general the students TUG-K scores were poor, indicating their great difficulties in understanding kinematics graphs. This finding is enhanced by student NLG calculation where 33%> of the students show negative gains, 57% of them are in the zero Jo moderate gain, and only 10% of the students are in a high positive NLG values.
