Zhang, Zhengyan; Chen, Ying-Chih; He, Guangxi; She, Hsiao-Ching; Chen, Jhih-Cheng – Asia-Pacific Science Education, 2023
This study aimed to develop a valid and reliable instrument, the Mental Images of Scientists Questionnaire (MISQ), and use the instrument to examine Chinese students' mental images of scientists' characters across school levels, regions, living settings, and gender. The final version of the MISQ consisted of four constructs: scientists' cognitive,…

Park, Eunju; Ha, Minsu – Asia-Pacific Science Education, 2022
To effectively employ inquiry-based learning to enhance students' inquiry practices and encourage them to think and act like scientists, science teachers must have a deeper understanding of the factors that influence scientific research and attitudes about scientist practice. This research contains the experience of two postdoctoral researchers in…

Lin, Jing; Zhang, Letong; Neumann, Knut; Cheng, Ping-Han; Wei, Wenting; Chang, Chun-Yen – Asia-Pacific Science Education, 2022
Scientific modeling (SM) is a core practice of science and an important component of scientific literacy. Supporting students in developing the competence to construct, use, evaluate, and revise models is hence of particular relevance. While research has shown that spatial visualization (SV), a core component of spatial ability, is correlated with…

Lee, Hyunju – Asia-Pacific Science Education, 2022
To effectively address socioscientific issues (SSI), science teachers need to obtain a certain level of pedagogical content knowledge for SSI teaching (SSI-PCK). In this study, therefore, pre-service science teachers (PSTs) were provided an SSI teacher education program (SSI-TEP) based on the SSI-PCK framework and their development and challenges…
