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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

Jansen, Susanne; Knippels, Marie-Christine P. J.; van Joolingen, Wouter R. – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Models are very important tools when learning and communicating about science. Models used in secondary school biology education range from concrete scale models, such as a model of a skeleton, to abstract concept-process models, such as a visualisation of meiosis. Understanding these concept-process models requires a profound understanding of the…

Özmen, Kübra; Özdemir, Ömer Faruk – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
This study was designed to develop an assessment tool to measure high school students' personal epistemology (PE) in the physics domain by using validation processes. Based on theoretical foundations of PE, the PPEQ was conceptualised on six hypothetical dimensions: structure of knowledge [SK], justification of knowledge and knowing [JK],…

Trommler, Friederike; Gresch, Helge; Hammann, Marcus – International Journal of Science Education, 2018
The teleological bias, a major learning obstacle, involves explaining biological phenomena in terms of purposes and goals. To probe the teleological bias, researchers have used acceptance judgement tasks and preference judgement tasks. In the present study, such tasks were used with German high school students (N = 353) for 10 phenomena from human…

Zimmerman, Heather Toomey; Weible, Jennifer L. – International Journal of Science Education, 2018
This collective case study investigates the role of digital photography to support high school students' engagement in science inquiry practices during a three-week environmental sciences unit. The study's theoretical framework brings together research from digital photography, participation in environmental science practices, and epistemic…

Fuhrmann, Tamar; Schneider, Bertrand; Blikstein, Paulo – International Journal of Science Education, 2018
The Bifocal Modelling Framework (BMF) is an approach for science learning which links students' physical experimentation with computer modelling in real time, focusing on the comparison of the two media. In this paper, we explore how a Bifocal Modelling implementation supported learning outcomes related to both content and metamodeling knowledge,…

Bennett, Judith; Dunlop, Lynda; Knox, Kerry J.; Reiss, Michael J.; Torrance Jenkins, Rebecca – International Journal of Science Education, 2018
Practical independent research projects (IRPs) are a feature of school science in a number of countries. To assess the impact of IRPs on students, a systematic review of the literature was undertaken. Thirty-nine papers met the review inclusion criteria, reporting on work from twelve countries. The review indicates that IRPs are often associated…

Shen, Kuan-Ming; Li, Tung-Lin; Lee, Min-Hsien – International Journal of Science Education, 2018
This study aimed to examine high school students' learning strategies in relation to their epistemic views and conceptions of learning in the discipline of biology through a structural equation modelling technique. A total of 247 high school students (168 males) participating in this study completed 3 questionnaires, the Epistemic Views of Biology…

Hsu, Pei-Ling; Venegas, Laura – International Journal of Science Education, 2018
Science internships where students work with scientists have been suggested to have many positive impacts on students' science learning. However, little research has been conducted to investigate the types of interactions that are beneficial for the development of science knowledge through an authentic internship experience. The purpose of this…

Bermudez, Gonzalo M. A.; Díaz, Sandra; De Longhi, Ana L. – International Journal of Science Education, 2018
People's diminished awareness of plants, affected by anthropogenic environmental deterioration, has challenged science education to overcome the obstacles impeding a better understanding of their meaning and value. The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of the socioeconomic status of high-school students, as indicated by their…
