The Test of Understanding Graphics in Kinematics (TUG-K) has been modified to produce aTest of Understanding Graphics in Rotational Kinematics (TUG-R) to probe student understanding of rotational kinematics. The seven objectives of the TUG-K were modified with three questions to explore each objective resulting in a 21 question TUG-R which closely parallels the original. For many questions the modification was a simple substitution of the equivalent rotational quantity for its linear counterpart in the question stem, answers and graph-axis labels. For the remainder of the questions the modification was straightforward. For instance, references to objects moving in a straight line were replaced by references to objects spinning about a fixed axis.
