Different Test or Assessment Questions

TL;DR In this pandemic year, cheating has been a major concern. One way of mitigating its effect is to ask questions beyond the traditional “Calculate…” type of physics problem. I present a list of possible questions that can’t be easily searched online and even if they’re found the answers are not as likely to be found in my experience. These questions probably work best in conjunction with the usual types of physics problems. 

This post is really just a collection of the Conceptual Understanding In Introductory Physics series. I thought it might be helpful to have them all organized in one post. I will refine and update this list as I add to it and modify it.
