Choi, Kyong Mi; Lee, Young-Sun; Park, Yoon Soo – EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science & Technology Education, 2015
International trended assessments have long attempted to provide instructional information to educational researchers and classroom teachers. Studies have shown that traditional methods of item analysis have not provided specific information that can be directly applicable to improve student performance. To this end, cognitive diagnosis models…

Annetta, Leonard A.; Dotger, Sharon – EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science & Technology Education, 2006
Training preservice teachers to develop a predisposition toward constructivist instruction is a major goal for many faculty in teacher education. One critical attribute of a constructivist teacher is a strong hold on pedagogical content knowledge. This study examined the prior knowledge of preservice science teachers and how that knowledge aligned…
