Abstract

The aim of this study was to revisit the previous study and identify the behaviours that help undergraduate students who achieved a final grade above 90th percentile and achieved most normalized gain of biomechanical concepts. A total of 149 students were recruited from introductory biomechanics classes from three public universities. The first version of Biomechanics Concept Inventory was given during the first and last week of the sessions with a 19-item questionnaire. Fifteen high achievement students in final grade and normalized gain were selected for further analysis. Students’ interest in biomechanics was identified as a common factor that related to high final grades and greatest normalized improvement. Students learning biomechanics in small groups and playing an active and important role may enhance learning and final grade.
