Fields Conceptual Change Inventory: A Diagnostic Test Instrument On The Electric Field And Magnetic Field To Diagnose Student’s Conceptions
Fields Conceptual Change Inventory (FCCI) is a diagnostic test instrument to diagnose student’s conception on
the electric and magnetic field. FCCI has been developed since 2012 for surveying conceptions of students who learn Basic
Physics II in Indonesia University of Education (UPI). FCCI design was based on highly desire of researchers to identify
every concept on electric and magnetic field. Developing these instruments has been producing some analysis in electricity
and magnetism concepts. Nowadays conceptual change is one of main issues to do research in science education especially
physics education. As a consequence researchers want to diagnose conceptions of pre-service teachers on the electric and
magnetic field. FCCI has been developed into two parts, the first is FCCI for diagnosing electric field and the second part is
FCCI for diagnosing magnetic field. In this work authors focus on describing FCCI to diagnose conceptions of students on
electric and magnetic field. As many as thirty three students have been surveyed by testing FCCI instrument in Odd
Semester 2014/2015 and data was processed to analyze conceptions in some categories, those are: understanding of concept,
parallel (partially) conceptions, misconceptions and do not understand of concept. Data were analyzed by using percentage
and described both quantitatively and qualitatively. To sum up pre-service teachers have variety conceptions on electric and
magnetic field which is very useful to be a baseline for next research.
