Brief Electricity and Magnetism Assessment

Brief Electricity and Magnetism Assessment

The Brief Electricity and Magnetism Assessment (BEMA), developed by Chabay and Sherwood, assesses student understanding of basic electricity and magnetism concepts. It is written for college-level calculus-based introductory physics courses. The files are password protected; users who wish to access the assessment will need to contact the authors. A Spanish translation of BEMA is available under Supplemental Documents. The reliability and discriminatory power of this assessment tool have been tested. The results are available at: Physical Review Special Topics - Physics Education Research: Volume 2, Issue 1, Page 7, <a href=""></a>
