Öz


This study is about the conceptual understanding of first and last year Turkish University students’ on electromagnetic induction. The questions used in this study have been selected and designed from Electromagnetic Induction unit in Physics to probe conceptual understanding and interpretation abilities of students. This will also be an attempt to obtain and interpret valuable information about the knowledge and understanding of the teacher’s teaching, students learning and curriculum used. Prepared questions were administered at Balıkesir University Necatibey Education Faculty. The results obtained from this study revealed that a low proportion of students involved in this study were able to give acceptable explanation about the Electromagnetic Induction concepts.
