Todd, Brandy L.; Zvoch, Keith – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
This study investigates the impact of an informal science outreach programme built around theories of identity formation and self-efficacy on middle school girls' science affinities. A lottery-based, randomised control trial was used to identify programme effects on four science affinity outcomes: science interests, efficacy with science, science…

Meyerhöffer, Nina; Dreesmann, Daniel C. – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
The dominant role of English as the global language of science entails a requirement for science teachers to equip their non-native English-speaking students with receptive and productive language skills for communication in scientific contexts. Although science courses with English elements are part of some schools' bilingual programmes, they are…

Kang, Jingoo; Hense, Jonathan; Scheersoi, Annette; Keinonen, Tuula – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Gender disparities in STEM fields have been under extensive study, the focus of which has been on future career aspirations. However, the primary phases in gender differences are still ambiguous when examined from this perspective, possibly due to the fact that most of the studies have targeted samples of upper secondary school or college…

van den Hurk, Anniek; Meelissen, Martina; van Langen, Annemarie – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
The so-called leaking STEM pipeline (dropout in STEM education) has been the subject of many studies. The large interest of scholars in plausible causes of this leakage has resulted in a number of meta-reviews describing factors at system, school and student level related to interest and persistence in STEM education. The STEM pipeline discussion…

Liu, Qing-Tang; Liu, Bo-Wei; Lin, Yu-Ren – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
The present study investigated the influence of two factors, namely, argumentation approach and students' prior knowledge on the learning of scientific concept and argumentation in descriptive and theoretical scientific concept-based topics. Four 7th grade science classes totalling 138 students participated and were assigned to four groups…

Rachmatullah, Arif; Ha, Minsu – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Accurate, rational, and scientific decision making is now considered to be the most important skill in science education. Many studies have found that overconfidence bias is one of the cognitive biases hindering people from achieving such decision making. Gender and country play crucial roles in overconfidence bias. For instance, some particular…

Höft, Lars; Bernholt, Sascha – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
This paper presents the findings of a three-year longitudinal study (Grades 9-11; N = 756 students in German secondary schools; mean starting age = 14.7 years) that explores the development of and the interplay between upper-secondary students' individual interest and conceptual understanding in chemistry. Students' individual interest was…

Tsybulsky, Dina – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
This qualitative, phenomenological study presents the experiences of high-school biology students (n = 233) in an outreach programme titled Students Meet Authentic Science. The core of the programme consists of students' visits to life-science university research laboratories (from here on referred to as labs). The programme was designed according…

Jiang, Shiyan; Shen, Ji; Smith, Blaine E. – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
The current K-12 educational system often does not engage students in interdisciplinary learning. To address this need, we developed an integrated STEM + L (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, and Digital Literacies) afterschool programme in which middle school students took discipline-specific roles (writer, scientist, artist, and engineer)…

Martins, Marina; Justi, Rosária – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
The aims of this paper are twofold. First, we present, justify, and characterise an instrument for analysing students' argumentative reasoning developed from Walton's ideas. Then, from the analysis of students' argumentative discussion about a socio-scientific controversy, we identify the advantages and disadvantages of using the instrument. The…

Wong, Victoria; Dillon, Justin – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Mathematical reasoning and tools are intrinsic to science, yet the close and dependent relationship science has to mathematics is not reflected in either school education or science education research. This paper asks what the barriers are to a mutually beneficial relationship between the two disciplines. A two-phase qualitative interview study…

Großmann, Nadine; Wilde, Matthias – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Experimentation is a complex problem-solving process. In biology lessons, experiments involve creative thinking and open discovery; however, they still require some degree of instructional guidance. The right balance between discovery learning and instructional guidance depends substantially on students' prior knowledge. Students with low prior…

Yang, Wenyuan; Liu, Cheng; Liu, Enshan – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Since inquiry was first introduced to science education, a lot of inquiry-based tasks have appeared in textbooks for supporting an inquiry-based approach. These tasks have great potential to direct the implementation of an inquiry-based approach, as teachers rely heavily on the use of existing instructional materials in most K-12 classrooms.…

Neumann, Knut; Kind, Vanessa; Harms, Ute – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
This Special Issue aims to present evidence about the relationships between content knowledge (CK), pedagogical knowledge (PK) and pedagogical content knowledge (PCK); the development of these types of knowledge in novice and experienced secondary science teachers; and how CK, PK and/or PCK impact students' learning. Since Shulman's introduction…

Gess-Newsome, Julie; Taylor, Joseph A.; Carlson, Janet; Gardner, April L.; Wilson, Christopher D.; Stuhlsatz, Molly A. M. – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
In this exploratory study, we attempted to measure potential changes in teacher knowledge and practice as a result of an intervention, as well as trace such changes through a theoretical path of influence that could inform a model of teacher professional knowledge. We created an instrument to measure pedagogical content knowledge (PCK), studied…
