Vogelzang, Johannes; Admiraal, Wilfried F.; Van Driel, Jan H. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
Scrum methodology is a novel framework for teaching intended to scaffold students' learning process when they work on complex, real-world tasks. It is originally a project management framework frequently used in business and industry to manage projects. Scrum methodology is increasingly used in educational contexts. Yet, it is also a rather…

Rüschenpöhler, Lilith; Markic, Silvija – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
Research has shown that students' science capital has a large impact on their science aspirations and their development of science identities. In this study, we apply the notion of science capital to chemistry education in order to investigate how students make use of science capital in the field of chemistry. We define chemistry capital as a…

Zowada, Christian; Frerichs, Nadja; Zuin, Vania Gomes; Eilks, Ingo – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
The debate on the use of pesticides is very current in the public media when it comes to topics such as organic farming, bee mortality, and the use of glyphosate. The broad range of pesticide applications and their potential environmental impact makes pesticides an interesting topic for science education in general and for chemistry teaching in…

Gkitzia, Vasiliki; Salta, Katerina; Tzougraki, Chryssa – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
Meaningful understanding of chemistry, among others, includes the ability of an individual to think simultaneously at macroscopic, submicroscopic and symbolic levels, and this presupposes the competence to translate between different types of chemical representations. In this study, we investigated 11th grade Greek students' and 3rd year…

Wei, Bing – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
Using Revised Bloom's Taxonomy (RBT), this study has examined the intellectual demands of the Senior High School Chemistry Curriculum (SHSCC) in China from a socio-historical perspective. Document analysis was adopted as a research method to analyze knowledge types and cognitive processes, the two dimensions of the cognitive learning objectives in…

Rüschenpöhler, Lilith; Markic, Silvija – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
While science self-concepts of secondary school students have received considerable attention, several important aspects of chemistry self-concepts have not yet been understood: gender relations, the impact of students' cultural backgrounds, and the impact of chemistry self-concept on learning processes. In the present study, (i) we could confirm…

Szalay, L.; Toth, Z.; Kiss, E. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
The results of an earlier empirical research study on modifying 'step-by-step' instructions to practical activities requiring one or more steps of the experiments to be designed by students initiated a longitudinal study to investigate the effectiveness of the approach for younger students and over a period of time. The longitudinal study that…

Keiner, Liz; Graulich, Nicole – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
Chemists refer to chemical phenomena on different representational levels--macroscopic, symbolic, and submicroscopic--which are directly related and connected to each other. Especially in the laboratory, students have to reason about various mechanistic features at the submicroscopic level and connect them in a meaningful way to make sense of the…

Schafer, Adam G. L.; Yezierski, Ellen J. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
High school chemistry teachers struggle to use assessment results to inform instruction. In the absence of expert assistance, teachers often look to their peers for guidance and support; however, little is known about the assessment beliefs and practices of high school chemistry teachers or the discourse mechanisms used as teachers support one…

Talbert, Lance E.; Bonner, James; Mortezaei, Kiana; Guregyan, Cybill; Henbest, Grace; Eichler, Jack F. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
In an effort to improve student conceptual understanding and help students better connect pre-existing knowledge to new ideas, a concept map assignment was implemented in a first-year college level general chemistry course. This implementation included a quasi-experiment that was carried out in discussion group recitation sections within a…

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…

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…

Upahi, Johnson Enero; Ramnarain, Umesh – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
The difficulties encountered by students in learning chemistry range from human factors to the intrinsic nature of chemistry. To enhance students' understanding of chemistry, there is a wide consensus within the community of chemistry educators on the importance of and need to integrate different levels of representations in chemistry teaching and…

Hennah, Naomi – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
The present paper reports upon the design and implementation of a novel practical work pedagogy that is shown to increase students' retention of practical procedures. The chemistry exams, for 15 to 16-year olds in England, will be assessed entirely through terminal examination questions from 2018. Longer term retention of learning is critical if…
