In this study at the first stage, alternative assessment techniques were constructed to determine students' misconceptions in the electromagnetic field-magnetism contents and at the second stage, effects of video-based experiments on students' achievement were examined. The participant of this study was 55 first-year students from science teaching department. Students' misconceptions were determined using by alternative assessment techniques which are branched diagnostic trees, structured grid and concept map constructed and used as pre-test. Then, video-based experiments were used and the alternative assessment techniques were conducted to students. Paired-samples t-test results indicate that video-based experiments have significant effect on students' achievement. (C) 2012 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
