Allen, DeeDee; Dancy, Melissa; Stearns, Elizabeth; Mickelson, Roslyn; Bottia, Martha – International Journal of STEM Education, 2022
Background: Repeated calls to diversify the population of students earning undergraduate degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields have noted the greater diversity of community college students and their potential to thus have an impact on the racial/ethnic composition of 4-year degree earners. In this paper, we…

Donham, Cristine; Barron, Hillary A.; Alkhouri, Jourjina Subih; Changaran Kumarath, Maya; Alejandro, Wesley; Menke, Erik; Kranzfelder, Petra – International Journal of STEM Education, 2022
Background: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many universities moved to emergency remote teaching (ERT). This allowed institutions to continue their instruction despite not being in person. However, ERT is not without consequences. For example, students may have inadequate technological supports, such as reliable internet and computers. Students may…

Gehrtz, Jessica; Brantner, Molly; Andrews, Tessa C. – International Journal of STEM Education, 2022
Background: STEM instructors who leverage student thinking can positively influence student outcomes and build their own teaching expertise. Leveraging student thinking involves using the substance of student thinking to inform instruction. The ways in which instructors leverage student thinking in undergraduate STEM contexts, and what enables…

Wang, Xi; Dai, Minhao; Mathis, Robin – International Journal of STEM Education, 2022
Background: Given the relatively low graduation and retention rate in undergraduate engineering programs in the United States, the factors that influence student success outcomes need to be examined. However, limited research systematically studied both student- and school-level factors and how they influenced undergraduate engineering student…

Jackson, Mallory A.; Moon, Sungmin; Doherty, Jennifer H.; Wenderoth, Mary Pat – International Journal of STEM Education, 2022
Background: There is overwhelming evidence that evidence-based teaching improves student performance; however, traditional lecture predominates in STEM courses. To provide support as faculty transform their lecture-based classrooms with evidence-based teaching practices, we created a faculty development program based on best practices, Consortium…

Ruiz-Martín, Héctor; Bybee, Rodger W. – International Journal of STEM Education, 2022
Over 34 years since its conception, research in educational settings has found evidence for the effectiveness of the 5E Instructional Model. Indeed, several studies have reported evidence of a better conceptual understanding of scientific ideas and models, positive effects on general achievement in science, and positive attitudes toward science.…

Tomkin, Jonathan H.; West, Matthew – International Journal of STEM Education, 2022
Background: Grades in college and university STEM courses are an important determinant of student persistence in STEM fields. Recent studies have used the grade offset/grade penalty method to explore why students have lower grades in STEM courses than their GPAs would predict. The results of these studies are in doubt; however, as they use GPA as…

Love, Tyler S.; Hughes, Andrew J. – International Journal of STEM Education, 2022
Background: Developing pre-service educators' content and pedagogical knowledge is critical for providing high-quality instruction in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines. Specifically, pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) has been identified as one of the most critically needed research areas within engineering…

Malespina, Alysa; Schunn, Christian D.; Singh, Chandralekha – International Journal of STEM Education, 2022
Background: Motivational factors are one active area of research that aims to increase the inclusion of women in physics. One of these factors that has only recently gained traction in physics is intelligence mindset (i.e., the belief that intelligence is either innate and unchangeable or can be developed). We studied 781 students in…

Wang, Liang-Hui; Chen, Bing; Hwang, Gwo-Jen; Guan, Jue-Qi; Wang, Yun-Qing – International Journal of STEM Education, 2022
Many researchers have explored the impact of digital games on learning effects in different STEM subjects. The purpose of this meta-analysis is to examine the effect of digital game-based STEM education on the learning achievement of K-12 or higher education students. The analysis results of effect sizes from 33 studies (N = 3894) published from…

Ruhf, Robert J.; Williams, Cody T.; Zelinsky, Megan; Becho, Lyssa Wilson – International Journal of STEM Education, 2022
Background: Billions of dollars are spent annually on grant-funded STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) education programs. These programs help students stay on track toward STEM careers when standard educational practices do not adequately prepare them for these careers. It is important to know that reliable and accurate…

Starr, Laura; Yngve, Katherine; Jin, Lan – International Journal of STEM Education, 2022
Background: Living-learning communities and global or diversity learning experiences have been identified as educational practices which often have a "high impact" on student success, as well as providing interpersonal competencies that are greatly valued by employers. Even without a specific intercultural or diversity component,…

Gamage, Sithara H. P. W.; Ayres, Jennifer R.; Behrend, Monica B. – International Journal of STEM Education, 2022
Background: The Moodle Learning Management System (LMS) is widely used in online teaching and learning, especially in STEM education. However, educational research on using Moodle is scattered throughout the literature. Therefore, this review aims to summarise this research to assist three sets of stakeholders--educators, researchers, and software…

Luo, Linlin; Stoeger, Heidrun; Subotnik, Rena F. – International Journal of STEM Education, 2022
Background: Women are underrepresented in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) professions. Even the most promising female students' interest in STEM subjects often decreases during secondary school. Using the framework of the Social Cognitive Career Theory, the present study examined the influences of social agents in female…

Stevenson, Nikolaus; Sommers, Amie S.; Grandgenett, Neal; Tapprich, William; McQuillan, Julia; Phillips, Michelle; Jensen, Rachael; Cutucache, Christine – International Journal of STEM Education, 2022
Background: Designed in 2012 with a first implementation in 2013, NE STEM 4U is a professional development program for post-secondary students/undergraduates, and serves as a source of outreach, content knowledge generation, and STEM literacy for youth in grades kindergarten through 8th grade (ages 5-14). The model empowers post-secondary students…
