Nennig, Hannah T.; Idárraga, Katrina L.; Salzer, Luke D.; Bleske-Rechek, April; Theisen, Roslyn M. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
Despite recent interest in online learning, systematic comparisons of online learning environments with traditional classroom environments are limited, particularly in the sciences. Here, we report on a systematic comparison of an online and face-to-face classroom for a sophomore-level, lecture-only introductory inorganic chemistry course that is…

Ralph, Vanessa R.; Lewis, Scott E. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
The methodological limitations education researchers face in the evaluation of reformed instruction have led to debates as to the evidence advancing evidence-based practices. To conduct more effective research, methodological pluralism in the evaluation of educational reforms can be used to complement the strengths and limitations of a corpus of…

Pekdag, Bülent – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
This study explores the effect of video-based instruction on the safety rules in the chemistry laboratory on student achievement. The sample for the study comprised 61 ninth grade students enrolled in two different classes at a public high school. The students in the class designated as the experimental group (N = 32) were given video-based…

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…

Veiga, Nicolas; Luzardo, Florencia; Irving, Kenneth; Rodriguez-Ayan, Maria N.; Torres, Julia – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
As a fundamental part of their chemical education, first-year undergraduate students are substantially involved in laboratory activities. Despite the specific teaching staff choices on the main laboratory aims, students normally receive a vast amount of information during these activities. Apart from understanding theoretical content, fundamental…

Gilewski, Alex; Mallory, Emily; Sandoval, Matthew; Litvak, Mikhail; Ye, Li – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
This study developed and implemented a learner-centered assessment named Creative Exercises (CEs) in introductory chemistry courses at a four-year university and a two-year community college. CEs were developed and implemented as an intervention for treatment groups. The control groups only used traditional assessments such as multiple-choice and…

Kousa, P.; Kavonius, R.; Aksela, M. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2018
The aims of this study were to determine low-achieving students' attitudes towards chemistry and how the attitudes differ within a low achieving group. The most preferred teaching methods were also defined. Empirical data (n = 2949) were collected by stratified sampling from fifteen-year-old Finnish lower-secondary school students as part of a…

van Vorst, Helena – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2018
This paper introduces Ladders of Learning (LLs) as a tool for structuring learning content and the teaching process in a transparent way for students. Learning material for a LL for Bohr's atomic model was developed by cooperation between chemistry teachers and university researchers and implemented in grade-eight chemistry classes. For evaluating…

Günter, Tugçe – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2018
The objective of this research was to investigate the effect of a context-based approach (CBA) 'Relating, Experiencing, Applying, Cooperating, Transferring' (REACT) strategy used in relation to the topic of solubility equilibrium in the laboratory chemistry course on students' achievement at associate level in a health-related program. In this…

Kiste, Alan L.; Scott, Gregory E.; Bukenberger, Jesse; Markmann, Miles; Moore, Jennifer – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2017
Twenty years ago, a major curriculum revision at a large, comprehensive university in the Western United States led to the implementation of an integrated lecture/laboratory (studio) experience for our engineering students taking general chemistry. Based on these twenty years of experience, construction of four purpose-built studio classrooms to…

Günter, Tugçe; Alpat, Sibel Kilinç – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2017
This study investigates the effects of problem-based learning (PBL) on students' academic achievements in studying "Electrochemistry" within a course on Analytical Chemistry. The research was of a pretest-posttest control group quasi-experimental design and it was conducted with second year students in the Chemistry Teaching Program at…

Bernard, P.; Bros, P.; Migdal-Mikuli, A. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2017
The development of the Internet, communication technologies and teaching methods creates new opportunities for the modernisation of academic classes. Many studies on the application of new educational models indicate that they are both more effective and preferred by students over classical approaches. Additionally, combining various education…

Villafañe, Sachel M.; Xu, Xiaoying; Raker, Jeffrey R. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2016
Self-efficacy is an affective learning outcome that has been associated with academic performance and retention in STEM. Self-efficacy has been defined as students' beliefs about their ability to complete a given task, and it can be affected by a student's positive or negative experience in a course. In this study, students' chemistry…

Olimpo, Jeffrey T.; Kumi, Bryna C.; Wroblewski, Richard; Dixon, Bonnie L. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2015
Two-dimensional (2D) diagrams are essential in chemistry for conveying and communicating key knowledge about disciplinary phenomena. While experts are adept at identifying, interpreting, and manipulating these representations, novices often are not. Ongoing research efforts in the field suggest that students' effective use of concrete and virtual…

Horn, Savannah; Hernick, Marcy – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2015
Test-enhanced learning has successfully been used as a means to enhance learning and promote knowledge retention in students. We have examined whether this approach could be used in a biochemistry course to enhance student learning about lipids-related concepts. Students were provided access to two optional learning modules with questions related…
