Cairns, Dean; Areepattamannil, Shaljan – Research in Science Education, 2022
This study investigated the relationships of teacher-directed approaches with science achievement in Australian schools. The data for this study were drawn from the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) 2015 database and analysed using multilevel modelling (MLM). MLMs were estimated to test the contribution of each item to students'…

Gómez Siurana, Amparo; Font-Escamilla, Alicia – Chemical Engineering Education, 2021
In this work, different alternatives for locating the optimal feed stage in a distillation column as well as the effect of the feed temperature are studied, by solving a classroom problem. The results obtained permit us to select the best way to optimize the feed stage location as well as to detect what thermal feed phase conditions should be…

Wancham, Kittitas; Tangdhanakanond, Kamonwan – Research in Science Education, 2022
This study aimed to investigate the effects of feedback types and opportunities to change answers on the learners' achievement and their ability to solve physics problems. We compared three feedback types, namely (1) static feedback with hints, (2) reducing feedback with hints, and (3) knowledge of response, and two types of opportunities to…

Yanarates, Erkan – Educational Policy Analysis and Strategic Research, 2022
The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of teaching with animation on chemistry achievement and learning persistence on pre-service science teachers studying in the undergraduate program of science teaching. The quasi-experimental model, one of the quantitative research approaches, was used in the study. The pretest-posttest was…

Zhao, Qin; Wininger, Steven; Hendricks, Jillian – Australian Educational Researcher, 2022
In this study, we investigated how gender and implicit theories of mathematics and science abilities interacted to predict mathematics and science achievements in a sample of elementary (primary) school students from the United States. Study participants came from six elementary schools (Grades 2 to 5) and were a part of a larger sample that…

Broemmel, Amy D.; Rearden, Kristin T.; Buckner, Carrie – Reading Teacher, 2021
In the 21st century, amidst the widespread adoption of the Next Generation Science Standards, many elementary teachers find it challenging to consistently incorporate science instruction. Although the research literature indicates that using science-based content in the literacy block has the potential to improve student achievement in both areas,…

Murphy, Steve – Research in Science Education, 2022
Science education is essential for sustainability and prosperity. However, students from rural communities, arguably the future custodians of our environment and significant drivers of our economies, underperform in science education. In Australia, rural students generally lag behind metropolitan students in science achievement and engagement.…

Steinmann, Isa; Olsen, Rolf Vegar – Large-scale Assessments in Education, 2022
Background: The present study addresses the equality of school effectiveness across schools. One central aim of compulsory education is for students to learn equally well at all schools in a country even if these schools differ in terms of student composition. However, measuring equality of learning gains independently from selection effects…

Atkinson, Molly B.; Croisant, Michael; Bretz, Stacey Lowery – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2021
Reaction coordinate diagrams (RCDs) are an important tool used to visualize the energetics of a chemical reaction. RCDs provide information about the kinetics of the reaction, the mechanism by which the reaction occurs, and the relative thermodynamic stability of the molecules in a reaction. Previous research studies have characterized student…

Powell, Cynthia B.; Simpson, Joseph; Williamson, Vickie M.; Dubrovskiy, Anton; Walker, Deborah Rush; Jang, Ben; Shelton, G. Robert; Mason, Diana – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
Completion of a first-semester chemistry (Chem I) course lays the foundation for understanding second-semester chemistry (Chem II) topics. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the influence of basic arithmetic skills on students' Chem II success in understanding mathematics-grounded concepts (e.g., solutions and aqueous reactions, kinetics,…

Robinson, Kristy A.; Perez, Tony; White-Levatich, Arianna; Linnenbrink-Garcia, Lisa – Journal of Experimental Education, 2022
The end of college is a key transition point when students prepare for the workforce or graduate school, and when competence beliefs that have been shaped throughout college play a particularly important role in decision-making processes. This study examined the roles of two competence beliefs, self-efficacy for scientific tasks and science…

Gümüs, Sedat; Bellibas, Mehmet Sükrü; Pietsch, Marcus – Journal of Educational Administration, 2022
Purpose: The research literature in this field demonstrates that instructional leadership provided by principals is essential for student learning, but the question of its impact on students with high and low socioeconomic status (SES) has remained largely unexplored. In the present study, the authors focus on the moderating role of instructional…

van der Linden, Dimitri; Dutton, Edward; Madison, Guy – Journal of Creative Behavior, 2020
There are national differences in scientific activity that are not well accounted for by economic and intellectual factors alone. We examine the novel hypothesis that androgen levels may also play a role. Androgens are often referred to as male hormones, but are present in both men and women, and have been linked to performance in other domains,…

Gobert, Geoffrey N. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2022
An optional electronic resource (e-resource) that requiring subscription was offered to 2nd year students studying university cell biology. An online survey attitudes identified cost, the relative (lack) ease of use, and a "general preference", as primary reasons for not utilizing the e-resource. The ability to access graphics, videos,…

Long, Haiying; Gao, Su; Yang, Luxi; Chen, Jin – Psychology in the Schools, 2022
This study focuses on the effectiveness of two types of teaching practices (i.e., inquiry-based and teacher-directed) on students' science achievement, an ongoing contentious issue in science education. It examined the direct and indirect effects of the two types of teaching practices, enjoyment of science, and students' science achievement with…
