A concept inventory comprises of carefully drafted set of multiple choice questions
aimed at probing and assessing student understanding. The questions and their
distractors are constructed systematically. The construction process involve theo-
retical analyses and iterative empirical investigations. In this paper we discuss these
steps in the context of the development of our inventory on rotational kinematics.
Methodologies which include think aloud protocol, retrospective probing and semi
structured interviews are discussed.
