Concept inventories are excellent instruments with which to validate the effectiveness of new teaching methodologies and curricular innovations. At the 2003 ASEE Annual Conference, we revealed that we were developing a Dynamics Concept Inventory (DCI) test and we presented our progress toward the creation of this test. Since that time, we have made substantial progress toward a release version of the DCI. In this paper, we will present the results of administering the DCI to over 450 students at a large public university and at a small private university and we will describe the final steps we have taken in getting to version 1.0 (the first public release) of the test.
