Lin, Kuen-Yi; Wu, Ying-Tien; Hsu, Yi-Ting; Williams, P. John – International Journal of STEM Education, 2021
Background: This study focuses on probing preservice technology teachers' cognitive structures and how they construct engineering design in technology-learning activities and explores the effects of infusing an engineering design process into science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) project-based learning to develop preservice…

Rabin, Jeffrey M.; Burgasser, Adam; Bussey, Thomas J.; Eggers, John; Lo, Stanley M.; Seethaler, Sherry; Stevens, Laura; Weizman, Haim – International Journal of STEM Education, 2021
Rate of change concepts from calculus are presented and applied rather differently in college mathematics, physics, biology, and chemistry classes. This is not simply a matter of pedagogical style but reflects real cultural differences between these disciplines. We describe the efforts of our interdisciplinary collaboration to understand and…

Price, Edward; Lau, Alexandra C.; Goldberg, Fred; Turpen, Chandra; Smith, P. Sean; Dancy, Melissa; Robinson, Steve – International Journal of STEM Education, 2021
Background: Adoption and use of effective, research-based instructional strategies (RBISs) for STEM education is less widespread than hoped. To promote further use of RBISs, the propagation paradigm suggests that developers work with potential adopters during the development process, and provide ongoing support after adoption. This article…

Barrasso, Anthony P.; Spilios, Kathryn E. – International Journal of STEM Education, 2021
Much of modern education reform is focused on implementation of evidenced-based teaching, but these techniques are sometimes met with trepidation from faculty, due to inexperience or lack of necessary resources. One near-peer teaching model designed to facilitate evidenced-based teaching in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics…

Zhao, FangFang; Schuchardt, Anita – International Journal of STEM Education, 2021
Scientific ideas are often expressed as mathematical equations. Understanding the ideas contained within these equations requires making sense of both the embedded mathematics knowledge and scientific knowledge. Students who can engage in this type of blended sensemaking are more successful at solving novel or more complex problems with these…

Cooper, Katelyn M.; Cala, Jacqueline M.; Brownell, Sara E. – International Journal of STEM Education, 2021
Background: Undergraduate research experiences are becoming essential for pursuing future opportunities in science, but little has been done to identify what factors predict which students get to participate in research and which students do not. In this manuscript, we propose "scientific research capital" and specifically…

Roehrig, Gillian H.; Dare, Emily A.; Ring-Whalen, Elizabeth; Wieselmann, Jeanna R. – International Journal of STEM Education, 2021
Background: Few tools or rubrics exist to assess the quality of integrated STEM curricula, and existing tools focus on checklists of characteristics of integrated STEM. While such instruments provide important information about the presence and quality of certain curricular components, they do not assess the level and nature of integration of the…

Magiera, Marta T.; Zambak, Vecihi S. – International Journal of STEM Education, 2021
Background: This paper contributes to current discussions about supporting prospective teachers (PSTs) in developing skills of noticing students' mathematical thinking. We draw attention to PSTs' initial noticing skills (prior to instruction focused on supporting noticing) as PSTs engage in analyzing written artifacts of student work and…

Santangelo, Jessica; Hobbie, Lawrence; Lee, Jacqueline; Pullin, Michael; Villa-Cuesta, Eugenia; Hyslop, Alison – International Journal of STEM Education, 2021
Background: Transforming the culture of STEM higher education to be more inclusive and help more students reach STEM careers is challenging. Herein, we describe a new model for STEM higher education transformation, the Sustainable, Transformative Engagement across a Multi-Institution/Multidisciplinary STEM, (STEM)[superscript 2],…

Means, Barbara; Wang, Haiwen; Wei, Xin; Young, Viki; Iwatani, Emi – International Journal of STEM Education, 2021
Background: Inclusive STEM high schools seek to broaden STEM participation by accepting students on the basis of interest rather than test scores and providing a program sufficient to prepare students for a STEM major in college. Almost nonexistent before the present century, these high schools have proliferated over the last two decades as a…

Martinez, Brianna L.; Sweeder, Ryan D.; VandenPlas, Jessica R.; Herrington, Deborah G. – International Journal of STEM Education, 2021
Background: Engagement with particle-level simulations can help students visualize the motion and interactions of gas particles, thus helping them develop a more scientifically accurate mental model. Such engagement outside of class prior to formal instruction can help meet the needs of students from diverse backgrounds and provide instructors…

Christian, Kimberly B.; Kelly, Angela M.; Bugallo, Mónica F. – International Journal of STEM Education, 2021
Background: With widespread adoption of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) in the USA (US), research is needed on how secondary science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) teachers conceptualize the integration of engineering knowledge and practices in traditional STEM classrooms. The present study explored the affective…

Andrews, Madison E.; Borrego, Maura; Boklage, Audrey – International Journal of STEM Education, 2021
Background: In recent years, makerspaces have become increasingly common venues of STEM education and are rapidly being incorporated into undergraduate programs. These spaces give students and instructors access to advanced design technology and facilitate the incorporation of a wide variety of projects into the curriculum; however, their impacts…

Hernandez, Dania; Jacomino, Gema; Swamy, Uma; Donis, Krista; Eddy, Sarah L. – International Journal of STEM Education, 2021
Background: Active learning supports student performance, but can be challenging to implement in large courses. The Learning Assistant (LA) Program is a growing intervention to support students in large active learning classrooms. This program places advanced undergraduates who have training in pedagogical methods in active learning classrooms to…

Rozgonjuk, Dmitri; Täht, Karin; Vassil, Kristjan – International Journal of STEM Education, 2021
Background: The excessive use of Internet-based technologies has received a considerable attention over the past years. Despite this, there is relatively little research on how general Internet usage patterns at and outside of school as well as on weekends may be associated with mathematics achievement. Moreover, only a handful of studies have…
