Archila, Pablo Antonio; Molina, Jorge; de Mejía, Anne-Marie Truscott – International Journal of Science Education, 2021
University bilingual science courses are on the rise because of the internationalisation of higher education. These courses are legitimate and desirable scenarios for the promotion of bilingual written scientific argumentation (BWSA) as part of bilingual scientific literacy. The problem is that very little evidence is available on how to foster…

Siersma, Pier T.; Pol, Henk J.; van Joolingen, Wouter R.; Visscher, Adrie J. – International Journal of Science Education, 2021
In this study, the conceptions of pre-university level secondary students with respect to radiation and radioactivity were investigated. A literature review determined what was already known about secondary school students' conceptions that differ from scientific theory, regarding radiation and radioactivity. Next, 12 Dutch students and their…

Stylos, Georgios; Sargioti, Aikaterini; Mavridis, Dimitrios; Kotsis, Konstantinos T. – International Journal of Science Education, 2021
Although students are expected to finish school having a solid understanding of scientific concepts, they graduate from universities maintaining their former misconceptions in several fields, like physics. This study aims at validating the Thermal Concept Evaluation (TCE) test for university student's misconceptions of thermal concepts in everyday…

Pols, C. F. J.; Dekkers, P. J. J. M.; de Vries, M. J. – International Journal of Science Education, 2021
This paper explores students' ability to analyse and interpret empirical data as inadequate data analysis skills and understandings may contribute to the renowned disappointing outcomes of practical work in secondary school physics. Selected competences, derived from a collection of leading curricula, are explored through interviews and practical…

Hackman, Salomey Tardy; Zhang, Danhui; He, Jingwen – International Journal of Science Education, 2021
Many Liberian teachers have limited experiences and low efficacy for teaching science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), which results in students receiving little preparation and having low levels of motivation to pursue STEM careers in Liberia. Teacher attitudes are central for efficient teaching STEM. However, little is known…

Koulougliotis, Dionysios; Antonoglou, Lemonia; Salta, Katerina – International Journal of Science Education, 2021
This study aims at investigating students' awareness of green chemistry principles (GCPs) which are infused in two context-based projects that are related to socio-scientific issues, namely climate change and materials' recycling. At first, content analysis of the projects' activities showed the infusion of four GCPs. Subsequently, the students'…

Peterson, Matthew; Delgado, Cesar; Tang, Kok-Sing; Bordas, Clément; Norville, Kayla – International Journal of Science Education, 2021
Pedagogical content knowledge of science teachers includes knowledge of representational forms, such as visual displays. Past research has provided a general means to evaluate pictures, but is not fine-grained on features internal to pictures. Furthermore, many existing picture function typologies consider pictures as subservient to text, though…
