Assessssv5b.zip (10MB) is an updated version of a pre/post ASSESSment SpreadSheet (assessss) as of Sept. 2013. It includes both .xls and .xlsx versions, the former works with Open Office, it is just a larger file. The spreadsheet has the ability to provide individual and entire class item analysis, especially helpful after pre-testing to determine instructional focus areas. Please follow the instructions in the readme.txt file. Except for the “scratch” worksheet, all remaining worksheets are linked – this means cutting in pasting in the remaining pages will cause data to become scrambled.
Assessssv5b is preset for the Force Concept Inventory, Test for Understanding Graphs in Kinematics, Mechanics Baseline Test, and Lawson Classroom Test of Scientific Reasoning. It has additional blank spreadsheet and answer keys for Energy Concept Inventory and the Conceptual Survey of Electricity and Magnetism. Users can analyze the FCI and the TUG-K2 by clusters (i.e., subcategory: by each of the 6 dimensions of the force concept). The readmefirst file provides further information including the operation and history of the spreadsheet. Please send notification about spreadsheet bugs to firstname.lastname@example.org
This instrument was developed by Jamie Vesenka, Professor of Physics, Department of Chemistry and Physics, University of New England.
