ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to find out the effectivity of using visual multimedia supported-conceptual development conceptual change text (VMS-CDCCText) in facilitating conceptual change of high school students related to the concepts in Static Electricity and DC Circuits subject matter. VMS-CDCCText consists of seven parts of the text. The method used in this study is a pre-experiment with one group pretest-posttest design. The number of research subjects was 80 students consisting of 46 female and 34 male students, at one high schools in West Java province Indonesia. Data about the state of students' conceptions were collected by conception test in the four tier test format. The results showed that the number of students who reached the type of construction and reconstruction on the two concept labels covered in the Static Electricity and two concept labels covered in the DC Circuits subject matter was above 70%. These results indicate that the use of VMS-CDCCText has a high effectiveness in facilitating the attainment of conceptual changes in construction and reconstruction types that lead to ownership of scientific conceptions.
