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 at distance physics course. 60 second-year students were enrolled in this study from computer education and instructional technology 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 at distance physics course. (C) 2012 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
