Scientific reasoning, Dual situated, Conceptual change



The concept of natural selection as the cause of evolution often leads to student misconceptions. This study was conducted to determine the role of the Scientific Reasoning-based DSLM in facilitating changes in student conceptions on the concept of Natural Selection. The design of this study uses mixed method embedded design experimental models. Research data obtained from students majoring in biology using data pre and post-test essays. A number of students from a university in Bandung, West Java Indonesia was involved as participants (N=33). Data collection is done at the time, before, and after the process takes place in the part of student misconception. The results are presented in qualitative form as primary and quantitative data as supporters. The research data shows that the conceptual change level consists of construction, revision, disorientation, static, and complementation. While the answer category at the beginning and end of the test has several indicators, namely no response, incorrect, incomplete, and complete. This study produces a learning model that can be used to facilitate the occurrence of changes in conception and also explain in detail the variation of understanding experienced by each student. The results of the study indicate that this model can facilitate the change in student conceptions in natural selection learning material.
