- This study investigated Korean earth science teachers‘ concerns and needs regarding scientific inquiry teaching to cope with the innovation called College Scholastic Abilities Test(CSAT), which was officially first administered as the nation wide college entrance exam in 1994. The study also compared its results with the results obtained by Myeong(1994). The study adopted the Concerns Based Adoption Model(CBAM) developed by Hall and others as the theoretical framework. Seventy two earth science teachers were involved for the main study in August, 1995. Earth science teachers in the present study showed a little higher concerns than the teachers of 1992 study on most stages and their concerns shifted a little toward those of ‘first users‘. However they still demonstrated a concern profile similar to that of ‘nonusers‘. They showed high levels of concern on ‘informational‘ and ‘personal‘ stages, while low levels of concern on ‘management‘ and ‘consequence‘ stages. Earth science teachers expressed their strong needs for support to facilitate scientific experiment, for text books written in the inquiry mode that deals with fewer concepts, for teaching materials and inservice training for inquiry teaching. They also needed the teachers' own workshops to train themselves. For the teacher at the present stage inservice trainings and practical help to enhance the teachers‘ abilities and to boost their confidence are recommended.
