Abstract

While some misconceptions already believed by students, it will resist changing. Therefore,
the earlier diagnosis of students’ misconceptions becomes crucial. This study determined
the misconceptions experienced by students in energy and evaluated the use of Ordered
Multiple Choice (OMC) and Reasoning Multiple Choice (RMC) test to measure it. The
sample in this study was two classes at SMA N 1 Samarinda that was taken by purposive
sampling technique. The samples were had relatively similar capability in physics, taught
by the same teacher with same teaching method. From the result, it is found that there are
some misconceptions experienced by the students. In the first class, percentage
misconception measured by OMC are level 1 "Naive concept" of 10%, level 2 "Hybrid
concept" as much as 36%. In the second class, percentage of misconception measured by
RMC is 22%. The OMC test was able to detect misconceptions on students generally and
classified two common types of misconceptions: naive and hybrid. While the RMC test
was able to show the misconception that occurred in each student in-depth because students
wrote their reasons independently.
