Using the Force Concept Inventory To Monitor Student Learning and to Plan Teaching.
Savinainen, Antti; Scott, Philip
Physics Education, v37 n1 p53-58 Jan 2002
The Force Concept Inventory (FCI) is a multiple-choice test designed to monitor students' understanding of force and related kinematics. Outlines how the FCI was used to evaluate student learning following a newly developed approach to teaching mechanics in a Finnish upper secondary school. Offers an example of the benefits that can follow from research- or evidence-based approaches to teaching. (Author/MM)
