Analyzing the FCI based on a force and motion learning progression

Neumann, I., Fulmer, G. W., & Liang, L. L. (2013). Analyzing the FCI based on a force and motion learning progression. Science Education Review Letters, 2013, 8-14.
In this paper, we bring together a well-established and often-studied instrument assessing students’
understanding about force and motion, the Force Concept Inventory (FCI), and a proposed description
of how students develop in understanding of the force concept, the Force and Motion Learning Progression
(FM-LP). We report on two phases of content analysis of the FCI and the FM-LP. In the first
phase, findings indicate that 17 FCI items address aspects consistent with the FM-LP. In the second
phase, our findings show that these 17 items have responses that can be coded to fit the levels of the
proposed FM-LP. Implications for future research on both the FCI and the FM-LP are described.
