Physics Education
written by Antti Savinainen and Phillip Scott
The Force Concept Inventory is a multiple-choice test designed to monitor students' understanding of force and related kinematics. In this paper we review the development of the FCI, outline its structure and review findings from its implementation. A case is made for the FCI as a powerful tool for improving both learning and teaching of mechanics.
