Conference Proceedings Detail Page

written by Karim Diff and Nacira Tache
As part of an ongoing assessment of our introductory physics courses, we have administered the Force Concept Inventory (FCI) and the Conceptual Survey of Electricity and Magnetism (CSEM) in the three different levels of physics courses offered at Santa Fe Community College: Applied physics, algebra-based physics and calculus-based physics. We present data collected this past year, including an analysis of the correlations between normalized FCI and CSEM gains for the past four years. In addition, we report results obtained this past year in a study of correlations between the Lawson classroom test of scientific reasoning and gains on the FCI and CSEM.
