Abstract Title: Predicting FCI Gain with a Nonverbal Intelligence Test
Abstract: We have administered a commercial, nonverbal intelligence test (GAMA) to students in two introductory physics courses, one algebra-based and one calculus-based.  We compare scores on that test with scores on Lawson's Classroom Test of Scientific Reasoning as predictors of gains on the Force Concept Inventory.
