This web page is the home for the Quantum Mechanics Conceptual Survey (QMCS). The goal of this assessment is to provide an accurate measure of students' understanding of fundamental concepts in quantum mechanics. The QMCS is inspired by the many carefully researched and validated tests of conceptual understanding in physics. The authors developed the questions to be independent of notation unique to a specific course and avoiding jargon as much as possible.
The questions in the QMCS are based on faculty interviews, textbooks and syllabi, existing assessments, research on student misconceptions in quantum mechanics, and student observations.
