Day 43: Force Concept Inventory

fci

Physics 11 I wanted to have a short end of term conference with each student, so I decided to give out the Force Concept Inventory to the class while doing interviews.  We’ve had two classes looking at what affects gravity, but otherwise we have not explored Newtonian mechanics.

The above photo is blurry, but the results are as I expected.  The average for my students was 29% (N = 57).  I think 5 students achieved a score of 50% or more, with one student getting 77%.  It will be very interesting to see where kids are at next spring.
