Students' own preconceptions are often resistant to change. According to researchers, conceptual conflict is an important factor in conceptual change; however, there is not enough evidence showing any relationship between cognitive conflict and conceptual change in the literature. This study aims to develop and validate the Cognitive Conflict Levels Test (CCLT) instrument which would: (1) measure cognitive conflict levels; (2) be capable of administering to elementary school students in a relatively short period of time; (3) be easily scored; and (4) require as little reading and writing as possible in a demonstration situation. In order to understand the levels of conflict, a model of cognitive conflict was formulated and features three stages: (1) preliminary stage; (2) conflict stage; and (3) resolution stage.
