The Brief Electricity and Magnetism Assessment (BEMA), developed by Chabay and Sherwood, assesses student understanding of basic electricity and magnetism concepts. It is written for college-level calculus-based introductory physics courses. The files are password protected; users who wish to access the assessment will need to contact the authors. A Spanish translation of BEMA is available under Supplemental Documents.

The reliability and discriminatory power of this assessment tool have been tested. The results are available at: Physical Review Special Topics - Physics Education Research: Volume 2, Issue 1, Page 7, http://prst-per.aps.org/abstract/PRSTPER/v2/i1/e010105

I'm Romelyn Manalo, a student of Bachelor of Secondary Education major in Physics at Philippine Normal University-Manila.

How can I have the password for the document here?
I hope you can help me.
It will be a great help for my undergraduate research.
Thank you in advance!
