Lee, Min-Hsien; Lin, Tzung-Jin; Tsai, Chin-Chung – Science Education, 2013
Classroom assessment is a critical aspect of teaching and learning. In this paper, Taiwanese high school students' conceptions of science assessment and the relationship between their conceptions of science assessment and of science learning were investigated. The study used both qualitative and quantitative methods. First, 60 students were…

Lin, Che-Li; Liang, Jyh-Chong; Su, Yi-Ching; Tsai, Chin-Chung – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2013
Teacher-centered instruction has been widely adopted in college computer science classrooms and has some benefits in training computer science undergraduates. Meanwhile, student-centered contexts have been advocated to promote computer science education. How computer science learners respond to or prefer the two types of teacher authority,…

Cheng, Kun-Hung; Liang, Jyh-Chong; Tsai, Chin-Chung – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2013
Three instruments (i.e., Internet-specific epistemic beliefs, self-regulation, and online academic help seeking questionnaires) were administered to 319 high school students with the aim of understanding the role of Internet specific epistemic beliefs and self-regulation in their online academic help seeking. Through a structure equation modeling…

Hsu, Chung-Yuan; Liang, Jyh-Chong; Chai, Ching-Sing; Tsai, Chin-Chung – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2013
Current technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPACK) studies are inclined to treat technology in a general manner, an approach which may not be able to provide adequate guidelines to improve teacher preparation and professional development when teaching with games. This study developed two new questionnaires, namely the Technological…

Koh, Joyce Hwee Ling; Chai, Ching Sing; Tsai, Chin-Chung – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2013
The seven constructs of the technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPACK) framework has been widely adopted as a theoretical basis for understanding the scope of teachers' information and communication technology (ICT) expertise. Despite this, very little is understood about the inter-relationships between these constructs, especially how…

Lin, Tzung-Jin; Tsai, Chin-Chung – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2013
In the past, students' science learning self-efficacy (SLSE) was usually measured by questionnaires that consisted of only a single scale, which might be insufficient to fully understand their SLSE. In this study, a multi-dimensional instrument, the SLSE instrument, was developed and validated to assess students' SLSE based on the previous…

Liang, Jyh-Chong; Chai, Ching Sing; Koh, Joyce Hwee Ling; Yang, Ching-Ju; Tsai, Chin-Chung – Australasian Journal of Educational Technology, 2013
Many teachers are reporting that they need to develop more subject-specific applications of educational technology. However, there seems to have been a lack of theoretical frameworks to guide educators in preparing and developing in-service preschool teacher education in the area of educational technology until the recent emergence of the…

Lin, Tzung-Jin; Goh, Amos Yoong Shin; Chai, Ching Sing; Tsai, Chin-Chung – Research in Science & Technological Education, 2013
Background and Purpose: Research in nature of science (NOS) among Asia-Pacific countries such as Singapore is arguably scarce. This study aimed to survey Singaporean secondary school students' views of NOS with a newly developed instrument named Students' Views of Nature of Science (SVNOS), which included various key aspects of NOS that are…

Lin, Tzung-Jin; Tsai, Chin-Chung – Research in Science & Technological Education, 2013
Background: Past studies have shown significant associations between students' conceptions of learning science and their science learning self-efficacy. However, in most of the studies, students' science learning self-efficacy has often been measured by a singular scale. Purpose: Extending the findings of these studies, the present study adopted a…

Li, Wei-Ting; Liang, Jyh-Chong; Tsai, Chin-Chung – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2013
The purpose of this research was to examine the relationships between conceptions of learning and approaches to learning in chemistry. Two questionnaires, conceptions of learning chemistry (COLC) and approaches to learning chemistry (ALC), were developed to identify 369 college chemistry-major students' (220 males and 149 females) conceptions of…

Goh, Amos; Chai, Ching Sing; Tsai, Chin-Chung – Asia-Pacific Education Researcher, 2013
Students' views on the nature of science and on the levels of self-directed and collaborative learning with technology support affect the manner in which learning is conducted in the classroom. With limited literature offering insight into the effects the knowledge building pedagogy has on these students' perceptions, this study employed the…

Hwang, Gwo-Jen; Sung, Han-Yu; Hung, Chun-Ming; Huang, Iwen; Tsai, Chin-Chung – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2012
In recent years, many researchers have been engaged in the development of educational computer games; however, previous studies have indicated that, without supportive models that take individual students' learning needs or difficulties into consideration, students might only show temporary interest during the learning process, and their learning…

Lin, Che-Li; Tsai, Chin-Chung; Liang, Jyh-Chong – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2012
Conceptions of learning are drawn from an individuals' learning experiences, which are theoretically built upon the phenomenographic research method. Seven conceptions of learning in the domain of science are identified: "memorizing," "testing," "calculating and practicing," "increase of knowledge," "application," "understanding," and "seeing in a…
