If through the use of Sense a character can determine the relative strength of the force in an individual as well as whether they lean towards the Light or Dark side than why do you suppose in the Jedi Academy Trilogy Luke needed equipment and computer checks for odd coincidences to find likely students strong in the force. (well aside from plot value)

he was really lazy and didn't want to tire himself out using up VPs?
It's thinking like that that makes a jedi master.

He didn't need the equipment, he could probe their mind and see if they had the reflex to keep him out. The equipment just made it faster and easier. He found out when he was probing Leia's mind that she forced him out so hard that he also was knocked on the ground. She didn't even know what she did. It is a reflex action that all jedi have, not matter how weak they are.--Arcome

Kevin F. Anderson has never seen Star Wars so thought it would be cool Luke would use a tricorder? :D
