There are 11 scales, consisting of 7-15 multiple-choice items, to be administered online. These test can be used to assess students' reasoning about a particular topic, and can also be used as a review. Instructors can retrieve test reports that can be helpful in identifying successfully learned concepts and where students are having difficulty reasoning about a particular topic.

The topics for the scales are:
  • Data Collection
  • Data Representation
  • Measures of Center
  • Measures of Spread
  • Normal Distribution
  • Probability
  • Bivariate Quantitative Data
  • Bivariate Categorical Data
  • Sampling Distributions
  • Confidence Intervals
  • Significance Tests
Normative and psychometric data will be available by September 2006 for each scale based on a large national administration during the 2005-2006 academic year.
