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
