Testa, Italo; Costanzo, Giovanni; Crispino, Marianna; Galano, Silvia; Parlati, Alessio; Tarallo, Oreste; Tric├▓, Francesca; Scotti di Uccio, Umberto – International Journal of Science Education, 2022
In this study, we present a new instrument, the Participation and Engagement Scale (PES), for the evaluation of the students' involvement in STEM-oriented activities. The instrument was administered to about 1000 secondary school students who participated in the activities of the Italian "Piano Nazionale Lauree Scientifiche" in Biology,…

Lee, Yew-Jin; Wan, Dongsheng – International Journal of Science Education, 2022
Integrated science is a ubiquitous school subject that is found in primary and middle-school levels around the world. Being a hybrid subject comprising several science disciplines, it poses many challenges to teachers as they are obliged to teach beyond their disciplinary comfort zones. In addition, this subject is prone to a lack of coherence,…

Bennion, Adam; Davis, Elizabeth A.; Palincsar, Annemarie S. – International Journal of Science Education, 2022
This longitudinal research examines the knowledge of, beliefs about, and planned use of the science practices of five novice elementary or primary teachers during their science methods course, student teaching, and first year of teaching. To answer our research questions, we collected lesson plans and conducted interviews after the teachers taught…

Schwichow, Martin; Brandenburger, Martina; Wilbers, Jens – International Journal of Science Education, 2022
Designing and interpreting controlled experiments are important inquiry skills addressed in many current science curricula. The relevant skills associated with the design and interpretation of controlled experiments are summarised under the term control-of-variables strategy (CVS). Research on elementary school students' CVS skills shows that they…

Caramaschi, Martina; Cullinane, Alison; Levrini, Olivia; Erduran, Sibel – International Journal of Science Education, 2022
The article describes the analysis of the Italian physics curriculum documents in terms of the coverage of nature of science (NOS). NOS is not explicitly presented as part of the Italian high-school physics curriculum. The article focuses on analysing the implicit aspects of the curriculum documents. The Family Resemblance Approach (FRA) to NOS…

Zhu, Yuanze – International Journal of Science Education, 2022
Science achievement and the factors related to it are frequently discussed in science education community. However, less researchers tend to consider student achievement in other subjects, especially reading and mathematics as included in the "Programme for International Student Assessment" (PISA). This research examined the relationship…

Hutner, Todd L.; Sampson, Victor; Baze, Christina L.; Chu, Lawrence; Crawford, Richard H. – International Journal of Science Education, 2022
Calls for engineering integration in pre-collegiate science courses are being made across the globe. The success of such efforts depends heavily on science teachers changing their instructional practices to include engineering. We conjecture when a science teacher chooses to make instructional change, including a change to integrate engineering…

Whittington, Kirby; Southerland, Sherry A.; Tekkumru-Kisa, Miray – International Journal of Science Education, 2022
Research calls for teachers to integrate students' funds of knowledge to bridge the gap between students' lived experiences with that of learning science -- that is, to make science relevant for students. Based on this critical practice, this exploratory study focuses on how pre-service science teachers integrate relevance, specifically students'…

Wu, Jiun-Yu; Tsai, Chin-Chung – International Journal of Science Education, 2022
Forming learners' science concepts and conceptual change entails adaptive epistemic beliefs to support a high degree of interactivity within a coherent knowledge structure. Adaptive epistemic beliefs are characterized by beliefs that knowledge is uncertain and should be justified through experimentation or multiple sources dependent upon the task…

Kapici, Hasan Ozgur; Akcay, Hakan; Cakir, Hakki – International Journal of Science Education, 2022
Inquiry-based learning can be an effective approach when students are provided with sufficient guidance. However, there is an ongoing debate among practitioners about the nature, type, and level of such guidance. This study investigated the effects on middle school students' (N = 116) conceptual knowledge and inquiry skills acquisition of…

Michailidi, Emily; Stavrou, Dimitris – International Journal of Science Education, 2022
This study focuses on post-induction mentoring as a vehicle for science teachers' training in implementing a nanotechnology teaching-learning sequence. Five mentors and 15 mentee-teachers participated in a 9-months long mentoring programme. Qualitative methods of analysis were used to examine the content of the mentoring conversations and the…

Borgerding, Lisa A.; Kaya, Fatma – International Journal of Science Education, 2022
This mixed methods study explores college biology students' perceptions of the utility of evolution knowledge. In Phase I, 14 college biology students from an upper-level Evolution course were interviewed about their evolution acceptance and perceptions of the utility of evolutionary knowledge. In Phase II, findings from Phase I were used to…

Safadi, Rafi' – International Journal of Science Education, 2022
Troubleshooting activities require students to diagnose teacher-crafted erroneous examples by detecting and explaining the conceptual errors driving them. In a previous study, the author tested whether diagnosing erroneous examples and then scoring them using a rubric that contained the related worked examples, a step-by-step strategy to solve a…

Lissitsa, Sabina; Chachashvili-Bolotin, Svetlana – International Journal of Science Education, 2022
The labour market for young STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) graduates requires flexibility and adaptability, which may potentially conflict with the spreading worldwide tendency toward delayed graduation. This is a cause for concern among academicians, policy makers and practitioners at all levels, as it may generate important…

Jones, Karen L.; Hamer, Jessica M. M. – International Journal of Science Education, 2022
Despite girls enjoying and being good at physics, the proportion of girls studying physics and going into physics related careers still lags behind that of boys. A large volume of research exists on the factors related to the uptake of girls into physics, however little research looks at the link between parents and their child's physics uptake.…
