Höft, Lars; Bernholt, Sascha; Blankenburg, Janet S.; Winberg, Mikael – Journal of Research in Science Teaching, 2019
The development of students' interest in school science activities, their understanding of central chemical concepts, and the interplay between both constructs across Grades 5-11 were analyzed in a cross-sectional paper-and-pencil study (N = 2,510, mean age 11-17 years). Previous empirical findings indicate that students' knowledge increases over…

Broman, Karolina; Bernholt, Sascha; Parchmann, Ilka – Research in Science & Technological Education, 2015
Background: Context-based learning approaches are used to enhance students' interest in, and knowledge about, science. According to different empirical studies, students' interest is improved by applying these more non-conventional approaches, while effects on learning outcomes are less coherent. Hence, further insights are needed into the…
