Force Concept Inventory
The Force Concept Inventory is an instrument designed to probe introductory physics students' beliefs on the central Newtonian concept of force and to probe how these beliefs compare with the many dimensions of the Newtonian concept. The Inventory categorizes Newtonian concepts and commonsense beliefs into six categories: kinematics, impetus, active force, action/reaction pairs, concatenation of influences, and other influences in motion (resistance, gravity).
