FCI-based Multiple Choice Test for Investigating Students' Representational Coherence 

written by Antti Savinainen, Pasi Nieminen, Jouni Viiri, Jukka Korkea-aho, and Aku Talikka

We present the Representation Test derived from the FCI for evaluating students' representational coherence on some aspects of gravitation and Newton's third law. The test consists of 23 questions addressing verbal, graphical, bar chart, and vectorial representations. Matched high school student data (n = 54) on the pre- and post-test are analyzed in terms of representational coherence and scientific correctness.
