  Abstract: We are investigating the difficulties that students have in learning about magnetism. A 30 item research-based survey was developed. During the development of the survey, we administered free-response questions to a large number of students in the classroom and interviewed a subset of students individually. We will discuss the reliability and validity issues and present our findings about difficulties with magnetism concepts after traditional instruction.
