These tests are directed towards unearthing and attempting to correct some of the preconceptions/misconceptions which students bring to their initial studies of physics.
Each test may be self-administered by students as a "take home" assignment. Students may work through the questions on the even-numbered pages and check their responses against the answers on the odd-numbered pages. The solution for each question includes a commentary on wrong answers to help address misconceptions.
