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…

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…

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…

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…

Eitemüller, Carolin; Habig, Sebastian – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
Preparatory or bridging courses are widespread and have a long tradition at universities. They are designed to increase students' academic success -- in particular of students with low prior knowledge -- and to reduce dropout rates. However, critics of these short and compact bridging courses complain that preparatory courses are not able to fill…

Keiner, Liz; Graulich, Nicole; Gottlich, Richard; Pietzner, Verena – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
Creativity has become an increasingly important competence in today's rapidly changing times. It is a central aspect of social development, but it is hardly discussed in schools and often neglected in the natural sciences. In order to promote creativity in science teaching in a targeted way, it is important to understand the perspectives and views…

Ekiz-Kiran, Betul; Boz, Yezdan – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
The purpose of this study was to examine the interactions between in-service chemistry teachers' science teaching orientations and other components of their pedagogical content knowledge (PCK). Two experienced chemistry teachers participated in this study. Data were collected through interviews, classroom observations, and field notes as the…

Tekane, Rethabile; Pilcher, Lynne A.; Potgieter, Marietjie – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
Although the implementation of blended learning in organic chemistry is rapidly growing, thus far, there are few studies published on the evaluation of supplemental types of blend in organic chemistry. This report covers a phenomenographic study that was designed to evaluate a supplemental type of blended learning approach implemented in a…

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…

Kohen, Zehavit; Herscovitz, Orit; Dori, Yehudit Judy – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
Facilitating students' chemical literacy is a focal point of current science education. This study examines views of chemists and chemistry teachers on chemical literacy and, more broadly, on scientific literacy of four kinds of stakeholders: scientists, teachers, STEM students, and the educated public. We explored the views of 347 participants,…

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…
