Abstract

This paper reports on a study utilizing Verbal Protocol Analysis (VPA) during prototype construction to investigate student's understanding of the engineering design process. Students were asked to think aloud during the design and construction of a prototype jar opener for physically challenged individuals. The results show that the inclusion of a hands-on component helped not only the researchers gauge student's understanding, but also helped the students in designing possible solutions.
