The post-test vs pre-test scores on the QMCS show that taking a course in graduate quantum mechanics does not lead to significant gains in undergraduate conceptual understanding.

Scores on final exam vs post-test scores on the QMCS. The lack of correlation shows that final exam performance in a graduate course is not indicative of undergraduate conceptual understanding. The Pearson correlation coefficient is for the final exam vs QMCS post-test and for final exam vs QMCS pre-test.

The strong correlation between the scores on the final exam and the scores on the GQMCS show that conceptual knowledge of graduate topics is an excellent indicator of calculational ability. The Pearson correlation coefficient is 0.74.
