Wind, Stefanie A.; Alemdar, Meltem; Lingle, Jeremy A.; Moore, Roxanne; Asilkalkan, Abdullah – International Journal of STEM Education, 2019
Typical approaches to assessing students' understanding of the engineering design process (EDP) include performance assessments that are time-consuming to score. It is also possible to use multiple-choice (MC) items to assess the EDP, but researchers and practitioners often view the diagnostic value of this assessment format as limited. However,…

Coles, Alf – International Journal of STEM Education, 2019
Background: This article is focused on the role of the facilitator in the professional development of mathematics teachers. It is a feature of several frameworks for using video that teachers are invited to comment on the detail of what they saw and heard, and base comments on evidence from the video. It is also a common finding that it is hard to…

Rainey, Katherine; Dancy, Melissa; Mickelson, Roslyn; Stearns, Elizabeth; Moller, Stephanie – International Journal of STEM Education, 2019
Background: Women and students of color are widely underrepresented in the majority of STEM fields. In order to investigate this underrepresentation, we interviewed over 200 male and female college seniors, primarily women and people of color, who either majored in STEM or started but dropped a STEM major. Here, we focus on one section of the…

Kurup, Premnadh M.; Li, Xia; Powell, Greg; Brown, Michael – International Journal of STEM Education, 2019
Background: STEM education needs to begin in primary schools and should aim to prepare young people for active participation in their future. To produce a generation interested and skilled in STEM, the key foci within schools may best occur through teams of teachers working together in an integrated approach, based on cross-curricular teaching and…

Bathgate, Meghan E.; Aragón, Oriana R.; Cavanagh, Andrew J.; Waterhouse, Jonathan K.; Frederick, Jennifer; Graham, Mark J. – International Journal of STEM Education, 2019
Background: Evidence-based teaching, such as active learning, is associated with increases in student learning and engagement. Although many faculty are beginning to adopt innovative practices, traditional lecture-based teaching tends to dominate college science education. What are the factors associated with faculty's decision to incorporate…

Scanlon, Erin; Zamarripa Roman, Brian; Ibadlit, Elijah; Chini, Jacquelyn J. – International Journal of STEM Education, 2019
Background: Numerous studies in the literature describe the effectiveness of research-based instructional strategies (RBIS) in the postsecondary STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) context. Many of these studies are predicated on the assumption that instructors implement the RBIS exactly as is intended by the developers.…

Gonsalves, Allison J.; Silfver, Eva; Danielsson, Anna; Berge, Maria – International Journal of STEM Education, 2019
Background: Research in engineering education has pointed to the need for new engineers to develop a broader skill-set with an emphasis on "softer" social skills. However, there remains strong tensions in the identity work that engineers must engage in to balance the technical demands of the discipline with the new emphasis on…

Chase, Catherine C.; Marks, Jenna; Malkiewich, Laura J.; Connolly, Helena – International Journal of STEM Education, 2019
Background: A key question in K-12 STEM education is how best to guide students as they engage in exploratory learning activities so that students develop transferable knowledge. We investigated this question in a study of teacher talk guidance of an exploratory activity called Invention. In this study, teachers worked one-on-one with students,…

Brassil, Chad E.; Couch, Brian A. – International Journal of STEM Education, 2019
Background: Within undergraduate science courses, instructors often assess student thinking using closed-ended question formats, such as multiple-choice (MC) and multiple-true-false (MTF), where students provide answers with respect to predetermined response options. While MC and MTF questions both consist of a question stem followed by a series…
