David Hestenes was my undergraduate physics professor (for mechanics)...
If this was an introductory undergraduate physics course, then it should have been *teaching* more appropriate imagery to students.
If it was a more advanced course and people were failing this test, then the prerequisite courses were not preparing their students correctly (or were passing failing students).
Either way, it sounds like that physics department needs to rethink its attitude. It sounds as though its goal was to winnow out students rather than teach them. That may be appropriate in a graduate program, but not an undergraduate one.
