Abstract

This study aims to develop the five-tier multiple-choice diagnostic test to identify prospective elementary school teachers’ misconceptions about phase transition using descriptive and verification methods. The subjects include 149 (116 female and 33 male students) prospective elementary school teachers in one of the Elementary School Teacher Education Study Programs (ESTESP) in West Java. The stages of the study are as follows: (1) designing a five-tier test instrument to analyze students’ misconceptions; (2) validation by experts; (3) instrument testing that was done on prospective teachers who have received phase transition materials; and (4) instrument testing that was done on prospective elementary school teachers who have not received phase transition teaching materials. The obtained data were analyzed descriptively using the percentage technique. In general, the results show that the developed test (FTMC-PT/five-tier multiple choice-phase transitions) is ideal for identifying students’ conceptions about phase transition. However, further study to develop the test items and to analyze them accordingly as per the item response theory is required.
