ASSESSSS request (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 InventoryTest for Understanding Graphs in KinematicsMechanics 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

This instrument was developed by Jamie Vesenka, Professor of Physics, Department of Chemistry and Physics, University of New England.

  1. I have taught system dynamics modeling for over 20 years at the high school level in algebra, pre-calculus, calculus, and designed a year-long modeling course for high school freshmen through seniors. System dynamics modeling uses icon-based software to model dynamic feedback systems. I would like to learn how to connect to your organization and perhaps share some of my expertise and learn more about the modeling your organization provides. After retiring from high school teaching I returned to the university and am in the dissertation phase of my doctorate in System Science at Portland State University.

  2. The ASSESSSS spreadsheet requires a password that is not provided. I contacted Jamie Vesenka and he indicated that it should be here, but it’s not.
    Could you please add the required password to the members-only section of this page? Thank you.

  3. I teach Conceptual Physics, AP Physics B (now 1 & 2), and robotics at Southfield Christian School. I am an AMTA member just renewing my membership for a 2nd year. I gave my students the FCI test this year and would like to receive the password to use the analysis spreadsheet.
