The new STAR Physics RTQs are up!

Here they are!

As always, let me know if you find anything objectionable in the new set.

UPDATE: No points will be awarded for finding the typographical errors in item #10 or item #64. The error in #64 though... wow! Not to worry: those will be fixed "with all deliberate speed."

A skyhook and roundtuit will be awarded to the first commenter who correctly identifies the previously-released RTQ that has now been retired. The CDE is not completely deaf to item criticism from the field.

PH1. g. Students know circular motion requires the application of a constant force directed toward the center of the circle.

Should read UNIFORM circular motion

Anonymous, I
1. agree, and
2. can assure you that the chances of modifying California's Academic Content Standards are, as they say, "between slim and none; and slim just left."

Typos in the RTQs will be fixed. Errors in the standards... do not exist.

Hello 2a-2,
Indeed they are! Good thing none of my students every check this blog or they'd have an inside track on that competition.
