Kelemen-Finan, Julia; Scheuch, Martin; Winter, Silvia – International Journal of Science Education, 2018
Despite the rising popularity of Citizen Science (CS) projects, there is little empirical evidence for effects on learning outcomes, particularly when young people are involved. It is also often not clear how CS projects are linked to science education (SE) research. The aim of this study was to examine biodiversity CS projects in an outdoor…

Yang, Wenyuan; Liu, Enshan – International Journal of Science Education, 2016
This article describes the development and validation of an instrument that can be used for content analysis of inquiry-based tasks. According to the theories of educational evaluation and qualities of inquiry, four essential functions that inquiry-based tasks should serve are defined: (1) assisting in the construction of understandings about…

Rutten, Nico; van der Veen, Jan T.; van Joolingen, Wouter R. – International Journal of Science Education, 2015
In this study we investigated the pedagogical context of whole-class teaching with computer simulations. We examined relations between the attitudes and learning goals of teachers and their students regarding the use of simulations in whole-class teaching, and how teachers implement these simulations in their teaching practices. We observed…

Bunterm, Tassanee; Lee, Kerry; Ng Lan Kong, Jeremy; Srikoon, Sanit; Vangpoomyai, Penporn; Rattanavongsa, Jareunkwan; Rachahoon, Ganya – International Journal of Science Education, 2014
Although the effects of open inquiry vs. more didactic approaches have been studied extensively, the effects of different types of inquiry have not received as much attention. We examined the effects of guided vs. structured inquiry on secondary students' learning of science. Students from three schools in north-eastern Thailand participated…

Arnold, Julia Caroline; Kremer, Kerstin; Mayer, Jürgen – International Journal of Science Education, 2014
Inquiry learning is a widely recognized method for fostering inquiry competence in science education. Nevertheless, there is discussion about how to best support students while working on inquiry tasks (in this case: experiments on causal relationships). To identify the kind of support students need in order to design experiments in upper grades,…
