Abstract

Many scholars have published research studies related to teacher misconceptions about science concepts but a few investigations report teachers’ understandings of Inquiry-Based Learning (IBL). To achieve the main concern, Indonesian version of the Understanding of Learning Cycle (ULC) test was developed by translation from English to Bahasa Indonesia and back translation to English. To ensure the quality of translation, the ULC test adopted from Marek, Maier, and McCann (2008) was translated by two scholars who had fluency in Bahasa Indonesia and English. The translated ULC was administered to 31 in-service elementary school teachers. The majority (97%) of the subject had teaching experiences from 5 to 15 years. The use of translated ULC test indicated that (1) Indonesian version of the ULC can be used to evaluate in-service elementary school teachers’ understanding of IBL; and (2) The varieties of misunderstandings about the IBL can be reported: (a) 94% of subjects discovered misunderstandings about teacher’s role during exploration; during concept introduction, (b) only 4% subjects understood teacher’s role as a guide to having students construct knowledge by the use of their learning experience; and ©, the majority (97%) of subjects had misunderstandings the main purpose of concept application to apply new knowledge to a recent situation.
