Reid, Joshua W.; Kirbulut Gunes, Zubeyde Demet; Fateh, Shaghayegh; Fatima, Adan; Macrie-Shuck, Michael; Nennig, Hannah T.; Quintanilla, Fabrizzio; States, Nicole E.; Syed, Ahmad; Cole, Renee; Rushton, Gregory T.; Shah, Lisa; Talanquer, Vicente – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2022
Several studies have highlighted the positive effects that active learning may have on student engagement and performance. However, the influence of active learning strategies is mediated by several factors, including the nature of the learning environment and the cognitive level of in-class tasks. These factors can affect different dimensions of…

Karch, Jessica M.; Sevian, Hannah – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2022
Productive problem solving, concept construction, and sense making occur through the core process of abstraction. Although the capacity for domain-general abstraction is developed at a young age, the role of abstraction in increasingly complex and disciplinary environments, such as those encountered in undergraduate STEM education, is not well…

Turkoguz, Suat; Ercan, Izel – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2022
This study investigated the effect of visual anthropomorphic stories on students' understanding of the particulate nature of matter and their level of anthropomorphic discourse. This study employed a quasi-experimental research design with pretest and posttest control groups. Science activities supported by visual anthropomorphic stories were…

Varadarajan, Sujatha; Ladage, Savita – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2022
The need for shifting the expository laboratory instruction style to inquiry-based approaches is widely acknowledged. Problem-based learning (PBL), one of the inquiry-based approaches, advocates students' self-directed learning. The literature indicates that scaffolding students' independent learning is necessary for a PBL environment. In our…

Lieber, Leonie; Graulich, Nicole – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2022
Building scientific arguments is a central ability for all scientists regardless of their specific domain. In organic chemistry, building arguments is a necessary skill to estimate reaction processes in consideration of the reactivities of reaction centres or the chemical and physical properties. Moreover, building arguments for multiple reaction…

Eckhard, Julia; Rodemer, Marc; Langner, Axel; Bernholt, Sascha; Graulich, Nicole – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2022
Research in Organic Chemistry education has revealed students' challenges in mechanistic reasoning. When solving mechanistic tasks, students tend to focus on explicit surface features, apply fragmented conceptual knowledge, rely on rote-memorization and, hence, often struggle to build well-grounded causal explanations. When taking a resource…

Aydin-Gunbatar, Sevgi; Akin, Fatma Nur – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2022
In this study based on mixed-methods design, we aimed to examine to what extent the participants underwent pedagogical transformation and developed topic-specific pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) for planning to teach acid-base equilibrium. Training for the acquisition of pedagogical transformation competence to develop topic-specific PCK was…

Berg, Stephanie A.; Moon, Alena – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2022
To develop competency in science practices, such as data analysis and interpretation, chemistry learners must develop an understanding of what makes an analysis and interpretation "good" (i.e., the criteria for success). One way that individuals extract the criteria for success in a novel situation is through making social comparisons,…

Keen, Clarissa; Sevian, Hannah – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2022
Learning and learning goals in undergraduate chemistry laboratory have been a popular research topic for the past three decades due to calls for curriculum reform, cost justification, and overall efficacy of necessary skill development. While much work has been done to assess curricular interventions on students' learning and attitudes towards…

Araújo, J. L.; Morais, C.; Paiva, J. C. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2022
The active participation of citizens in scientific research, through citizen science, has been proven successful. However, knowledge on the potential of citizen science within formal chemistry learning, at the conceptual and procedural levels, remains insufficiently explored. We developed a citizen science project -- PVC: Perceiving the Value of…

da Silva Costa, Mauricio Bruno; dos Santos, Bruno Ferreira – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2022
The learning of scientific concepts is one of the main research subjects in science education. Although little used, the theory of conceptual profiles allows the study of this knowledge, taking into account the presence of different ways of thinking about a certain concept in the same individual. This study aimed to build a conceptual profile for…

Petterson, Michael N.; Finkenstaedt-Quinn, Solaire A.; Gere, Anne Ruggles; Shultz, Ginger V. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2022
Student affect is an important factor in the learning process and may be especially important in gateway courses such as organic chemistry. Students' recognition of the relevance of the content they are learning and interactions with their peers can support their motivation to learn. Herein, we describe a study focused on how Writing-to-Learn…

Wang, Ying; Lewis, Scott E. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2022
Prior research has demonstrated the important role of chemistry students' affect in academic performance. Likert-scale surveys are the most prevalent tools to measure students' affect within chemistry education research, however, data collected through a Likert-scale survey may exhibit response style bias which can hinder accurately measuring…

Petritis, Steven J.; Kelley, Colleen; Talanquer, Vicente – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2022
Previous research on student argumentation in the chemistry laboratory has emphasized the evaluation of argument quality or the characterization of argument structure (i.e., claims, evidence, rationale). In spite of this progress, little is known about the impact of the wide array of factors that impact students' argumentation in the undergraduate…
