Minshall, Brianna L.; Yezierski, Ellen J. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2021
For six semesters, activities have been incorporated into first year general chemistry courses in an effort to build student conceptual chemistry knowledge. The activities follow a learning cycle pedagogy (similar to Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning or POGIL activities) and consist of guiding questions involving animations, models,…

Ardura, Diego; Zamora, Angela; Perez-Bitrian, Alberto – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2021
The present investigation aims to analyze the effect of motivation on students' causal attributions to choose or abandon chemistry when it first becomes optional in the secondary education curriculum in Spain. Attributions to the effect of the family and to the teacher and classroom methodology were found to be common predictors of the choice to…

Bucková, Alena; Prokša, Miroslav – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2021
The paper describes our research aimed to verify the durability of pupils' initial ideas and concepts on the issue of acids and bases. First, we mapped their existence among primary school pupils and then compared them with the ideas of secondary and university educated adults. It has been confirmed that some initial ideas are very lasting and are…

Todd, Kaylee; Therriault, David J.; Angerhofer, Alexander – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2021
Building domain knowledge is essential to a student's success in any course. Chemistry, similar to other STEM disciplines, has a strong cumulative element (i.e., topic areas continuously build upon prior coursework). We employed the testing effect, in the form of post-exam retrieval quizzes, as a way to improve students' understanding of chemistry…

Kadioglu-Akbulut, Cansel; Uzuntiryaki-Kondakci, Esen – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2021
The current study investigated the effectiveness of self-regulatory instruction developed based on guided inquiry on 11th grade students' use of learning strategies and achievement in chemistry, compared to traditionally designed chemistry instruction. Additionally, the self-regulatory processes in which students engaged and the development of…

Liyanage, Dilhara; Lo, Stanley M.; Hunnicutt, Sally S. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2021
A novel methodology has been developed to capture student interactions and engagement modes by mapping their discourse in Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning (POGIL) physical chemistry courses using graph theory and a modified ICAP ("Interactive," "Constructive," "Active," "Passive") framework. This…

Heidbrink, Amber; Weinrich, Melissa – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2021
Metacognition is an important skill for undergraduate chemistry students, but there has been scant research investigating chemistry instructors' perspectives of metacognition and the development of their students' metacognition. Since undergraduate instructors have a wide influence over what happens in their courses, it is crucial to investigate…

Muteti, Caroline Z.; Zarraga, Carolina; Jacob, Brooke I.; Mwarumba, Tuli M.; Nkhata, Dorothy B.; Mwavita, Mwarumba; Mohanty, Smita; Mutambuki, Jacinta M. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2021
Many students transitioning from high school to college are faced with challenges of getting acclimated to college life and managing their time and heavy course load that is cognitively demanding. Students planning to major in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) programs in the United States are mostly required to enroll in…

He, Peng; Zheng, Changlong; Li, Tingting – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2021
This study aims to develop and validate a new instrument for measuring chemistry teachers' perceptions of Pedagogical Content Knowledge for teaching Chemistry Core Competencies (PCK_CCC) in the context of new Chinese chemistry curriculum reform. The five constructs and the initial 17 items in the new instrument were contextualized by the PCK…

Schafer, Adam G. L.; Borland, Victoria M.; Yezierski, Ellen J. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2021
Even when chemistry teachers' beliefs about assessment design align with literature-cited best practices, barriers can prevent teachers from enacting those beliefs when developing day-to-day assessments. In this paper, the relationship between high school chemistry teachers' self-generated "best practices" for developing formative…

Santos-Díaz, Stephanie; Towns, Marcy H. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2021
Outreach initiatives are typically framed as informal learning environments that provide an opportunity to increase the participants' interest in science. Research on chemistry outreach has primarily focused on designing and implementing demonstrations for outreach. Recent studies indicate student organizations are at the forefront of chemistry…

Ekiz-Kiran, Betul; Boz, Yezdan; Oztay, Elif Selcan – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2021
The purpose of this study was to improve the pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) of pre-service chemistry teachers using a school experience course enriched with PCK development tools such as CoRe as a lesson planning form, observations of mentor teachers' teaching by using an observation form prepared based on PCK components, discussion sessions…

Watts, Field M.; Zaimi, Ina; Kranz, David; Graulich, Nicole; Shultz, Ginger V. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2021
Reasoning about organic chemistry reaction mechanisms requires engagement with multiple concepts and necessitates balancing the relative influence of different chemical properties. A goal of organic chemistry instruction is to support students with engaging in this type of reasoning. In this study, we describe our use of case comparison problems…

Raviolo, Andrés; Farré, Andrea S.; Schroh, Nayla Traiman – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2021
This article presents and discusses the results of a study that investigates university students' comprehension of the concept of molar concentration, following teaching and evaluation of the subject. The specific problems underlying learning of this concept have not yet been focused on in sufficient detail or depth. A "Reasoning with…

Cole, Martin H.; Fuller, Dana K.; Sanger, Michael J. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2021
This study compares students' explanations of the oxidation-reduction reaction between silver nitrate and copper metal after viewing a chemical demonstration and one of four different particulate-level computer animations. The animations differed in the way the ionic charges were depicted (shown or omitted) and the way the transferred electrons…
