Towards quantification of the FCI’s validity: the effect of false positives
written by Michael M. Hull, Jun-Ichiro Yasuda, Masa-aki Taniguchi, and Naohiro Mae
We are interested in quantifying the systematic error of the Force Concept Inventory (FCI). A modified version of the FCI was administered to 500 university students in Japan in 2015. In addition to the 30 original questions, subquestions were introduced for three questions that, according to prior research, elicit false positives from students (6, 7, and 16) as well as for question 5. Using logistic regression with the results of question 5 and its subquestions, we estimate the systematic error arising from the remaining 26 questions. Our results indicate that FCI true score can be less than half of the FCI raw score for Japanese students.
