Catherine Lemmi; Greses Pérez – International Journal of Science Education, 2024
In a phenomenon known as translanguaging, multilingual learners draw freely from their repertoires without regard for language boundaries. Although multilingual learners live their lives between languages in their communities, science education is just beginning to acknowledge the important role of their hybrid language practices for learning.…

Kathryn Paige; Lisa O'Keeffe; Samuel Osborne – International Journal of Science Education, 2024
Teachers, pre-service teachers and teacher educators in Australia are predominately European Australian with a small minority of First Nations people. Those with limited first-hand understanding of First Nations ways of knowing can find it difficult to embed these knowledges across learning areas. This is particularly complex for pre-service…

Dominik Šmida; Elena Cipková; Michael Fuchs – International Journal of Science Education, 2024
Teachers can develop science literacy among pupils through Inquiry-Based Science Education. IBSE helps to evolve the inquiry skills necessary for understanding the world of science and nature. To be able to improve the level of inquiry skills systematically, we need to know the current level among pupils. For this reason, we designed a…

Hsin-Yi Chang; Chen-Chung Liu; Chi-Ting Wen; Ming-Hua Chang; Shih-Hsun Fan Chiang; Fu-Kwun Hwang – International Journal of Science Education, 2024
One issue facing teachers who implement model-based instruction within the school system is the tight curricular schedule. The 'lesson objective tension' calls for investigations to address instructional issues such as how to organise modelling-based instruction at the curriculum level which is across multiple units. We investigated the effect of…

Molly M. Staggs; Julie C. Brown – International Journal of Science Education, 2024
To make sound science-related decisions in a global society, individuals must possess a science identity, or see themselves as capable of doing and understanding science. Science identity development begins in school-aged years, when multilingual students (MLs) are often marginalised in the classroom due to language challenges and low expectations…

Joseph A. Kitchen; Michael S. Williams; Gerhard Sonnert; Philip Sadler – International Journal of Science Education, 2024
This quasi-experimental study examined the impact of participation in college-run STEM career days on American high school students' STEM career aspirations. Data were collected from a nationwide retrospective cohort survey of 15,847 U.S. college students who provided information about their experiences during high school. Accounting for…

Dennis Fung – International Journal of Science Education, 2024
The aim of this research was to investigate the synergistic effects of peer collaboration and graphic organisers (i.e. mind maps) in Hong Kong science classrooms. Over two hundred Grade Four (i.e. Primary Four) students were assigned to different pedagogical groups, namely, "individualised learning with mind mapping," "collaborative…

James Deehan; Amy MacDonald – International Journal of Science Education, 2024
As a myriad of student-centred practices in primary science education have been established as valuable, effective cornerstones of teachers' repertoires, there is now space to further consider student choice in science education. This paper seeks to examine the role of student choice in primary science education by exploring the relationship…

Timm, J.; Oberste, N.; Schmiemann, P. – International Journal of Science Education, 2023
Pedigree problems are typical tasks in school genetics classes. However, they are perceived as difficult and often are not successfully completed. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to determine relevant factors that might have an impact on success in pedigree analysis. Based on previous research, we investigate the influence of the…

Wan, Tong – International Journal of Science Education, 2023
Measurement uncertainty is a key topic in the university physics laboratory curriculum. In this study, we investigate students' ability to draw conclusions from measurement data and reasoning about measurement uncertainty in inquiry labs. This investigation centres around a task where students conclude whether measurements from two experiments…

Plummer, Julia D.; Ricketts, Amy – International Journal of Science Education, 2023
While recent reform-based efforts have shifted the emphasis towards engaging children in science practices, little research has considered how preschool-age children take first steps towards engagement in evidence-based explanations or modelling practices nor the role museum-settings might provide. Using a theoretical perspective that science…

Castagno, Angelina E.; Ingram, Jani C.; Camplain, Ricky – International Journal of Science Education, 2023
This paper explores how the educational and career paths of Indigenous people in STEMM have been impacted by ethical, cultural, and/or spiritual issues. Based on a survey of over 400 Indigenous students and professionals in STEMM fields, plus over 30 follow up interviews, we find that these issues cause some Indigenous people to leave particular…

Valencia Narbona, Martina; Núñez Nieto, Paola; Cofré Mardones, Hernán – International Journal of Science Education, 2023
There is worldwide agreement that the understanding of the Nature of Science (NOS) is a critical component of scientific literacy. However, evidence indicates that both pre-service and in-service science teachers hold naïve views about NOS. Even so, the characteristics of pre-service teachers that influence their learning of NOS are not fully…

Rivera Gavidia, Luis Miguel; Marrero Galván, Juan José – International Journal of Science Education, 2023
The aim of this research was to assess students' ability to explain scientific phenomena by means of a POE pedagogical tool. To achieve this aim, we conducted home experiments in a digital environment. In this qualitative and transversal ex-post-facto research, 775 pupils (aged 13-18 years) enrolled in compulsory secondary education from the…

Mills, Reece; Whiteford, Chrystal; Brown, Daniel; Tomas, Louisa – International Journal of Science Education, 2023
There is a need for robust, empirically-validated conceptualisations of teachers' attitudes towards teaching science, with a view to understand how these might explain their intention to teach science. The "Dimensions of Attitudes Toward Science" (DAS) theoretical framework suggests that cognitive, affective and perceived control…
