Scope and Method of Study. This study investigated the significant predictors of exam performance in a second semester algebra-based Physics course. The predictors included course components, ability variables, and behavioral variables such as learning styles and attitude about Physics. If significant predictor variables are found, then it might be possible to identify students who will struggle in the course.The web-based homework system, MasteringPhysics, offered problems hints, simpler problems, criticism for incorrect answers, and penalties for every hint. The predictor variables were: the time students take to complete the problem (T), hints anbsp;...
