|Title:||Assessing Students' Prior Concepts of Physical Change by the Use of a Purpose-Designed Survey Instrument||Contributor(s):||Taylor, Neil (author) ; Coll, Richard K (author)||Publication Date:||2002||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/10333||Abstract:||The Science Concept Survey (SCS) instrument was developed from interviews with pre-service science teachers in Australia and Fiji and a pilot study undertaken in Fiji. Items consist of questions drawn from Interviews-About-Instances (IAI), Interviews-About-Events (IAE) and Predict-Observe-Explain (POE) activities related to Kinetic Theory. Administration of the instrument to a cohort of pre-service teachers in Fiji (n=143) reveals that the SCS is a useful tool for the elicitation of student scientific and alternative conceptions, and is able to distinguish between different cohorts of students.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in South East Asia, XXV (1), p. 25-40||Publisher:||Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization (SEAMEO)||Place of Publication:||Malaysia||ISSN:||0126-7663||Field of Research (FOR):||130399 Specialist Studies in Education not elsewhere classified||Socio-Economic Objective (SEO):||930199 Learner and Learning not elsewhere classified||HERDC Category Description:||C2 Non-Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://www.recsam.edu.my/R%26D_Journals/YEAR2002/2002Vol25No1/25-40.pdf||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 268|
