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…

Wright, Lyniesha Chanell; Oliver-Hoyo, Maria Theresa – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
The mental models students have after engaging in an activity designed to teach infrared (IR) spectroscopy without reliance on IR absorption tables, were characterized. Qualitative analysis of semi-structured interviews, through open coding, allowed the classification of the mental models as Molecules as Dynamic (MAD), Bonds as Dynamic (BAD),…

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…

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…

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…

Sendur, Gulten – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
In order for students to reach a level of meaningful understanding of chemistry, it is vital that they are able to form accurate relationships between different concepts. In particular, in organic chemistry, identifying intermolecular reactions, considering these reactions as a whole, and defining their results will make important contributions to…

Breslyn, Wayne – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
Publicly available, learner-generated questions were used to develop a methodology for advancing the exploratory stages of science education research. Data from four complementary online sources were collected, analyzed, and compared to the extant research literature on the science education topic of isotopes, a challenging concept for many…

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…

Watson, Sandy White; Dubrovskiy, Anton V.; Peters, Michelle L. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
The purpose of this quasi-experimental non-equivalent pretest posttest control group research was to determine whether or not the use of a collaborative pH computer simulation has an impact on the knowledge, confidence, and conceptual understanding of fundamental pH concepts for undergraduate Chemistry II students. A purposeful sample of 59…

Carle, Myriam S.; Visser, Rebecca; Flynn, Alison B. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
We developed an online learning module called ''Organic Mechanisms: Mastering the Arrows'' to help students learn part of organic chemistry's language--the electron-pushing formalism. The module guides students to learn and practice the electron-pushing formalism using a combination of interactive videos, questions with instant feedback, and…

Beck, Jordan P.; Muniz, Marc N.; Crickmore, Cassidy; Sizemore, Logan – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
Models that are used to predict and explain phenomena related to molecular vibration and rotation are ubiquitous in physical chemistry, and are of importance in many related fields. Yet, little work has been done to characterize student use and application of these models. We describe the results of a multi-year, multi-institutional qualitative…

Gallardo-Williams, Maria; Morsch, Layne A.; Paye, Ciana; Seery, Michael K. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
Student-generated videos are growing in popularity in education generally, and in chemistry education there are several reports emerging on their use in practice. Interest in their use in chemistry is grounded in the visual nature of chemistry, the role of laboratory work in chemistry, and a desire to enhance digital literacy skills. In this…

Flaherty, A. A. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
Organic Chemistry, Life, the Universe and Everything (OCLUE) is an undergraduate lecture-based organic chemistry course that has been transformed in line with the vision for science education set out by the 'Framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts and Core Ideas' (National Research Council, 2012). OCLUE is designed…

Bongers, Amanda; Beauvoir, Berthorie; Streja, Nicholas; Northof, Georg; Flynn, Alison B. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
In chemistry, novices and experts use mental models to simulate and reason about sub-microscopic processes. Animations are thus important tools for learning in chemistry to convey reaction dynamics and molecular motion. While there are many animations available and studies showing the benefit of learning from animations, there are also limitations…

Carle, Myriam S.; Flynn, Alison B. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
The concept of delocalization (i.e., resonance) is fundamental concept in organic chemistry but essential learning outcomes (LOs) have not previously been proposed nor has there been an analysis of how resonance is taught, despite indications in the literature that students have many non-canonical ideas about the concepts. To address this deficit,…
