Function and Applications

The software interTESS is an interactive software tool for supporting teachers as well as students in the set up, performance and evaluation of experiments from PHYWE's TESS program (Training and Experimental System for Students, in total more than 1000 student experiments available). The age-based teaching approach together with a computer interface for PC-based data collection, interTESS offers a real computer-based learning.

The experiments are available in up to 11 languages on DVD (English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, Polish, Arabic, Russian, Turkish).

  • Experiments become more attractive. Future kids grow up with computers. With interTESS, the fascination of the PC can be transferred to physics.
  • Save valuable teaching time. The software supports the student during the experimental setup, action and evaluation. The teacher can assist the students individually.
  • Step-by-step experimentation ensures maximum learning effectiveness. The interTESS software guides the users through the experiments. Detailed descriptions help for a better understanding. The measurement results can be entered in tabulars, graphs are generated automatically.
  • Easy evaluation of student performance. A large variety of questions can be answered using multiple choice, by drawing sketches or as text. Also possible as homework on the students PCs.
  • Teacher Tool minimizes preparation time. The teacher tool offers password-protected access to sample-solutions.
