Reid, Scott A.; MacBride, Laura; Nobile, Llanie; Fiedler, Adam T.; Gardinier, James R. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2021
General chemistry courses are key gateways for many Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) majors. Here, we report on the implementation and evaluation of an adaptive, ALEKS-based online preparatory module (PM) for general chemistry. The module was made available in Summer 2018 at no cost to all students entering any section of…

Akinyemi, Olutosin Solomon; Mavhunga, Elizabeth – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2021
This paper reports on the relationship between the pre-service teachers' enacted Topic Specific Pedagogical Content Knowledge (eTSPCK) observable in the classroom teaching of Organic Chemistry and learner achievement in the topic. The study employed a mixed-methods research design with a sample of 17 pre-service teachers (PSTs). The PSTs were…

Guspatni, Guspatni – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2021
Student-generated drawings are known to be effective in building and revealing students' conceptions of chemistry. Some chemistry concepts, moreover, include changes and processes that cannot be merely represented by static drawings. Computer-based animations are needed to represent the dynamics. In this study, 25 chemistry student teachers, who…

Hunter, Kevin H.; Rodriguez, Jon-Marc G.; Becker, Nicole M. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2021
Beyond students' ability to manipulate variables and solve problems, chemistry instructors are also interested in students developing a deeper conceptual understanding of chemistry, that is, engaging in the process of sensemaking. The concept of sensemaking transcends problem-solving and focuses on students recognizing a gap in knowledge and…

Stott, Angela Elisabeth – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2021
Stoichiometry calculation competence tends to be particularly poor in the developing world, even among teachers. Various methods, including the unit factor method, have the potential to be effective in developing such competence. To evaluate the likelihood of such a generic proportion method, which downplays traditional formula usage, succeeding…

Deng, Jacky M.; Flynn, Alison B. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2021
In a world facing complex global challenges, citizens around the world need to be able to engage in scientific reasoning and argumentation supported by evidence. Chemistry educators can support students in developing these skills by providing opportunities to justify how and why phenomena occur, including on assessments. However, little is known…

Popova, Maia; Jones, Tamera – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2021
Representational competence is one's ability to use disciplinary representations for learning, communicating, and problem-solving. These skills are at the heart of engagement in scientific practices and were recognized by the ACS Examinations Institute as one of ten anchoring concepts. Despite the important role that representational competence…

Zotos, Eleni K.; Tyo, Jordan J.; Shultz, Ginger V. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2021
Many recent studies document the difficulties that students experience when learning organic chemistry, often due to the complex visualization and reasoning skills required to successfully understand the ways molecules interact in specific environments. Many of these studies call on instructors to improve their teaching strategies to support…

Lin, Chia-Yin; Wu, Hsin-Kai – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2021
The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of different ways to use visualizations on high school students' electrochemistry conceptual understanding and motivation towards chemistry learning. Expanding upon a model-based learning approach (Khan, 2007), we adopted a VGEM sequence (View, Generate, Evaluate, and Modify) to create three…

Martinez, Brianna L.; Kararo, Alex T.; Parent, Kristin N.; Underwood, Sonia M.; Matz, Rebecca L. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2021
Students often struggle to make interdisciplinary connections and cite a lack of opportunity to make such connections. To address this issue, we are developing activities aligned with the framework of three-dimensional learning that provide students with opportunities to make connections between chemistry concepts and biological phenomena. Here,…

Kiernan, Nicola A.; Manches, Andrew; Seery, Michael K. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2021
Visuospatial thinking is considered crucial for understanding of three-dimensional spatial concepts in STEM disciplines. Despite their importance, little is known about the underlying cognitive processing required to spatially reason and the varied strategies students may employ to solve visuospatial problems. This study seeks to identify and…

Altowaiji, Sara; Haddadin, Rakahn; Campos, Priscilla; Sorn, Shannon; Gonzalez, Lizbeth; Villafane, Sachel M.; Groves, Michael N. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2021
Chemistry laboratory experiences provide students the opportunity to engage all three domains of learning: psychomotor, cognitive and affective. However, they are often stressful environments where students are expected to quickly learn new laboratory techniques, and collect data in a short amount of time. In principle, providing additional…

Tashiro, Jenna; Parga, Daniela; Pollard, John; Talanquer, Vicente – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2021
Students' abilities to self-assess their understanding can influence their learning and academic performance. Different factors, such as performance level, have been shown to relate to student self-assessment. In this study, hierarchical linear modeling was used to identify factors and quantify their effects on the changes observed in chemistry…
