Main Document

Energy and Momentum Conceptual Survey 

written by David Rosengrant and Chandralekha Singh

The Energy and Momentum Conceptual Survey is a 25-question research-based multiple-choice test designed for students in algebra- and calculus-based introductory classes.

The survey is based on investigations of students' difficulties in momentum and energy and should be administered in a 50-minute period. Statistical results have shown the survey to be reliable and valid. A summary of the construction and analysis of the survey is available in C. Singh and D. Rosengrant, Multiple-choice test of energy and momentum concepts, Am. J. Phys. 71 (6), 607-619 (2003).

This assessment is free for use by instructors in their classroom. However, as it takes years of development effort to create and validate reliable assessment instruments, the file is password-protected. Furthermore, the author requests that 1. students are not given copies following examination; and 2. none of the questions are incorporated into web-based question delivery systems without adequate security to prevent printing or unauthorized access by students.

Testin kehittäjät edellyttävät, että
1) testimateriaali kerätään pois opiskelijoilta eli testikysymykset  ja -vastaukset eivät jää opiskelijoiden haltuun.
2) testikysymyksiä ei käytetä web-pohjaisissa sovelluksissa ilman riittävää suojausta, joka estää testin tulostamisen ja auktorisoimattoman kirjautumisen.
