Wu, Hoi-Ting; Mortezaei, Kiana; Alvelais, Teresa; Henbest, Grace; Murphy, Courtney; Yezierski, Ellen J.; Eichler, Jack F. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2021
Implementation of the flipped classroom approach into STEM courses has been popularized in the last decade and has generally been reported to improve student performance outcomes. In a flipped classroom setting, students typically first encounter course content in the online format and subsequently engage in some form of active learning during the…

Zemel, Yoram; Shwartz, Gabby; Avargil, Shirly – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2021
In recent years teachers' education programs encourage preservice teachers to practice a variety of assessment methods to prepare them to be highly qualified practitioners who are capable in enhancing students' scientific understanding. Formative assessment (FA) -- also known as assessment for learning -- involves the process of seeking and…

Santos, Deborah L.; Gallo, Harrison; Barbera, Jack; Mooring, Suazette R. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2021
Students' beliefs about their ability to improve their intelligence (known as mindset) likely have more impact on their academic outcomes when engaging in challenging learning environments, such as introductory undergraduate chemistry courses. To date, little research has been conducted on the chemistry-specific aspects of intelligence which…

Yik, Brandon J.; Dood, Amber J.; Cruz-Ramirez de Arellano, Daniel; Fields, Kimberly B.; Raker, Jeffrey R. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2021
Acid-base chemistry is a key reaction motif taught in postsecondary organic chemistry courses. More specifically, concepts from the Lewis acid-base model are broadly applicable to understanding mechanistic ideas such as electron density, nucleophilicity, and electrophilicity; thus, the Lewis model is fundamental to explaining an array of reaction…

Ho, Karen; Smith, Sahara R.; Venter, Catharina; Clark, Douglas B. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2021
Intentional reflection is a key component of Community Service Learning (CSL) as it guides students to integrate knowledge of theory with experience in practice. A semester-long chemistry curriculum with an integrated CSL intervention was implemented in a Canadian university to investigate how reflection in the laboratory setting enhances…

Lawrie, Gwendolyn A.; Graulich, Nicole; Kahveci, Ajda; Lewis, Scott E. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
The submission of a traditional postgraduate research thesis (or dissertation) is a milestone achievement that should be celebrated and has been regarded as a rite of passage. This major document has normally occupied a significant amount of mental space and time, often involving a frantic and intense period of writing to meet the submission…

Lu, Huanhuan; Jiang, Yanxia; Bi, Hualin – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
The galvanic cell is a basic concept in electrochemistry. To assess mainland Chinese students' proficiency levels in galvanic cells, the Galvanic Cell Proficiency Level Assessment (GCPA) was developed based on the Rasch model. The GCPA was developed through a pilot test and consists of seven multiple-choice questions and four open questions. The…

Watson, Sandy White; Dubrovskiy, Anton V.; Peters, Michelle L. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
The purpose of this quasi-experimental non-equivalent pretest posttest control group research was to determine whether or not the use of a collaborative pH computer simulation has an impact on the knowledge, confidence, and conceptual understanding of fundamental pH concepts for undergraduate Chemistry II students. A purposeful sample of 59…

Carle, Myriam S.; Visser, Rebecca; Flynn, Alison B. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
We developed an online learning module called ''Organic Mechanisms: Mastering the Arrows'' to help students learn part of organic chemistry's language--the electron-pushing formalism. The module guides students to learn and practice the electron-pushing formalism using a combination of interactive videos, questions with instant feedback, and…

Beck, Jordan P.; Muniz, Marc N.; Crickmore, Cassidy; Sizemore, Logan – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
Models that are used to predict and explain phenomena related to molecular vibration and rotation are ubiquitous in physical chemistry, and are of importance in many related fields. Yet, little work has been done to characterize student use and application of these models. We describe the results of a multi-year, multi-institutional qualitative…

Avargil, Shirly; Kohen, Zehavit; Dori, Yehudit Judy – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
In many countries, the choice of a STEM career, especially in chemistry, is decreasing. A shortage of appropriately skilled workers can become a threat to any country's future achievements. Our research strives to understand behavioral trends and career choice factors related to personal and environmental themes. Building on the foundations of the…

Gallardo-Williams, Maria; Morsch, Layne A.; Paye, Ciana; Seery, Michael K. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
Student-generated videos are growing in popularity in education generally, and in chemistry education there are several reports emerging on their use in practice. Interest in their use in chemistry is grounded in the visual nature of chemistry, the role of laboratory work in chemistry, and a desire to enhance digital literacy skills. In this…

Flaherty, A. A. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
Organic Chemistry, Life, the Universe and Everything (OCLUE) is an undergraduate lecture-based organic chemistry course that has been transformed in line with the vision for science education set out by the 'Framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts and Core Ideas' (National Research Council, 2012). OCLUE is designed…

Bongers, Amanda; Beauvoir, Berthorie; Streja, Nicholas; Northof, Georg; Flynn, Alison B. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
In chemistry, novices and experts use mental models to simulate and reason about sub-microscopic processes. Animations are thus important tools for learning in chemistry to convey reaction dynamics and molecular motion. While there are many animations available and studies showing the benefit of learning from animations, there are also limitations…
