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.
