The Physics Teacher
written by Richard N. Steinberg and Mel S. Sabella
This paper compares the responses of university physics students on the Force Concept Inventory (FCI) and on open-ended examination questions.  The Mechanics Baseline Test (MBT) is another multiple choice test. It contains a greater range of topics than the FCI and is intended for use after instruction.
